Antioxidants prevent free radical damage to these vital organs to prevent degenerative diseases, the diseases normally associated with old age.

Holy Basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) is a shrub native to India and already cultivated in Europe and North America. India’s Ayurvedice medicine refers to it as “tulsi”, a Sanskrit term which means “the incomparable one”. Aside from being used as an ornamental plant, Ayurveda uses Holy Basil as an herbal remedy for its various medicinal properties. It is widely referred to as an adaptogenic herb, something that helps the body effectively deal with both emotional and physical stress. According to studies, Holy Basil extract can help maintain healthy levels of the stress hormone cortisol. By keeping stress to a level that the body and mind can handle, holy basil can offer protection against the long term effects of stress. Excessive and long term stress can lead to anxiety, panic attacks, depression, ulcers, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, and many others. Stress has even linked to the premature signs of ageing like wrinkles, memory loss, and decreased energy. When taken with other anti-stress activities, Holy Basil extract can promote healthy stress management.
