Key Tulsi Tea Benefits: 5 Top Benefits


Stress Management

Tulsi tea can help to address physical, chemical, metabolic, and psychological stress. Tulsi can’t magically change your mood, but it may moderate cortisol to help protect body systems during stressful times. In fact, it’s known to subside some symptoms of depression.

Respiratory Support

Tulsi tea may help prevent and support relief and healing for such respiratory illnesses as cold, cough, asthma, and bronchitis. Its immunomodulatory properties help to provide immune support. Its antitussive properties help to relieve coughs. Its expectorant properties help to expel phlegm and relieve congestion too.

Blood Sugar Level Regulation

Tulsi tea benefits include helping to significantly lower blood sugar levels. Drinking Tulsi tea may also help support metabolism of carbs and fats, enabling sugar in the blood to be used for energy. Tulsi’s hypoglycemic properties may lower blood sugar levels and help prevent complications of diabetes.

Heart Health

Tulsi helps maintain healthy heart function and can lower cholesterol levels. Tulsi may support the treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases by lowering blood lipid content, suppressing ischemia and stroke, and reducing hypertension.

Dental and Oral Health

The antimicrobial properties in Tulsi tea help combat harmful bacteria and germs in the mouth. Chewing of raw Tulsi leaves is used to relieve mouth ulcers. In addition, its antibacterial properties can help reduce dental problems like bad breath and may help prevent gum disease.

Phytochemicals Galore

Tulsi tea contains natural antioxidants that can help protect the body against free-radical damage. In fact, the complexity of Tulsi’s photochemistry helps explain the diverse Tulsi tea benefits I’ve described here. Essentially, phytochemicals are chemical compounds found in plant foods, which may have health effects.

Just a few of its many major constituents include eugenol, carvacrol, linalool, saponins, flavonoids, ursolic acid, rosmarinic acid, propanoic acid, and linoleic acid.
