Superfood Saturday – Tulsi (Holy Basil Leaf)

Often dubbed the Queen of all Herbs, Tulsi, an ancient herb used for thousands of years, offers help with healing on a multitude of levels.

Tulsi is a powerful adaptogen found in my Shakeology, which is what introduced me to Tulsi to begin with! Tulsi provides optimal support for the immune system, increasing stamina and endurance while also reducing inflammation.

It is an effective herb for supporting the heart, lungs and liver, and contains potent levels of antimicrobial oils. In perhaps one of my personal favorite benefits, research has also identified it to have anti-diabetic potential, and to have influence over the neurochemistry of the brain, making it comparable to antidepressant medications.
