Tulsi in Ayurveda

Tulsi has been the cornerstone of Ayurvedic medicine for over 5,000 years. This sacred Indian herb has rich antioxidant and adaptogenic properties, which promote wellness by enhancing the body’s immune system. Antioxidants protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Adaptogens serve as powerful anti-stress agents, helping to guard against the effects of both environmental and emotional stress. According to Ayurveda, Tulsi purifies the body by removing harmful toxins. It is used to treat colds, cough and the flu.
