AHHH! Stress Relief Support
Ocimum sanctum Concentrated Extract 20:1
AHHH! contains Ocimum sanctum, commonly known as Tulsi and Holy Basil. Ocimum sanctum is the Queen of Herbs. This traditional medicinal plant found in India is considered sacred by the Hindus for its legendary healing properties and the stress relief support it provides. Its Sanskrit name, Tulsi, means “incomparable one.”
Used for thousands of years, Tulsi is prevalent in ancient Greek, Unani, and Ayurvedic systems of holistic health. A nootropic and an antioxidant, it has been used as an adaptogen that helps the body adapt to life’s stresses and enables the body to function normally during traumatic periods. It helps keep normal levels of cortisol in the body so you feel less anxious.
Today, it’s generally recognized that Tulsi can help to address physical, chemical, metabolic, and psychological stress. It may provide stress relief through a unique combination of pharmacological actions. Tulsi can’t magically change your mood, but it may moderate cortisol to help protect body systems during stressful times. It may help provide some of the stress relief you’re seeking.
Regular consumption may help protect and detoxify the body’s cells and organs. Benefits may include reduction of stress, anxiety, and depression by calming the mind and offering psychological benefits, such as anti-anxiety and anti-depressant activity with effects comparable to diazepam and antidepressant drugs. It may also enhance memory and cognitive function and protect against age-induced memory deficits.
Tulsi is regarded in Ayurveda as a kind of elixir of life and believed to promote longevity. Hundreds of scientific studies have established a basis for therapeutic uses of this plant, including this study, this study, and this study.
