Brew a cup of stress management tea made from Ocimum sanctum (Tulsi) extract, and you’ll say AHHH!
We all have days where we feel overwhelmed, especially as a result of the ups and downs 2020 has brought to bear.
For some people, feeling stressed can become the new normal, which is problematic. Make no mistake, stress is serious business. Depression, anxiety, heart attacks, stroke, hypertension, susceptibility to infections, and viral disorders such as the common cold have been linked to stress.
So how can you get yourself back on track? Try drinking a calming cup of all-natural stress management tea.
Ocimum sanctum – Tulsi – Holy Basil Tea
AHHH! Stress Relief Support contains Ocimum sanctum, commonly known as Tulsi and Holy Basil. Ocimum is known as the Queen of Herbs, and it makes an excellent stress management tea. This traditional medicinal plant found in India is considered sacred by the Hindus for its legendary healing properties and the stress management support it provides. Its Sanskrit name, Tulsi, means “incomparable one.”
Used for thousands of years, Ocimum 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 Ocimum can help address physical, chemical, metabolic, and psychological stress. It can’t magically change your mood, but it may moderate cortisol to help protect body systems during stressful times. Stress management tea may provide some of the support 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.
Stress Management Tea
Ocimum 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 (visit the NIH site to review some of these studies). There is good reason to believe that a lifestyle-related approach to optimal health will benefit from support with Ocimum as a health supplement. Maintain the balance of your nerves with stress management tea, and say AHHH!
