Tulsi teas are super beneficial for you. Here’s why
Ancient Ayurvedic texts have referred to tulsi as a tonic for the body, mind and spirit. Tulsi benefits the body by pacifying the Vata and Kapha dosha in the body. This balancing effect on the two doshas makes it useful in the treatment of asthma and chronic respiratory disorders, bronchitis, cold and cough and also repeated hiccups.
Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum), also known as holy basil in English, is easily the most ancient and popular Indian herb. It has been used in Ayurveda for more than 3000 years, and continues to be a crucial ingredient in most home remedies even in modern times. Owing to its vast array of health benefits and healing powers, tulsi has also earned the title of ‘Elixir of Life’ and ‘The Incomparable One’ in Ayurveda medicine. So what is it that makes tulsi so special? Let’s find out below.
What are the health benefits of Tulsi?
Tulsi uses in Ayurveda are many. Ancient Ayurvedic texts have referred to tulsi as a tonic for the body, mind and spirit. Tulsi benefits the body by pacifying the Vata and Kapha dosha in the body. This balancing effect on the two doshas makes it useful in the treatment of asthma and chronic respiratory disorders, bronchitis, cold and cough and also repeated hiccups. It balances Kapha dosha and as such is useful to relieve excess sputum production and reduce itching in cases of skin diseases or dry scalps. Due to its Vata pacifying effect, it also relieves gas accumulation in the body providing relief from resulting discomfort and pain. Tulsi is also a powerful adaptogen, which reduce the negative intensity and impact of physical, emotional and environmental stress.
Modern research is also establishing the anti-ageing, anti-microbial, anti-viral and naturally detoxifying properties of tulsi. Little wonder that tulsi extracts have found widespread use in the cosmetics industry for skin conditioning, anti-acne preparations, etc. Studies have also found that tulsi reduces free radicals in the body, thereby protecting against oxidative stress and damage. Tulsi leaves are also known to stabilise blood sugar levels. The addition of tulsi leaf powder to the diet has also demonstrated reduction in total cholesterol, triglyceride, phospholipids and total lipids in the heart, liver and kidney.
Tulsi can be consumed in a diverse number of ways. You can chew the fresh leaves, or boil half teaspoon of dry leaves and strain before drinking. A highly convenient way of using tulsi is in teabags. Tulsi tea has gained worldwide popularity in the last decade and is now readily available in the market as pure tulsi tea, tulsi green tea, tulsi ginger tea etc.
