Are you looking for a great tasting herbal tea that is loaded with health benefits to add to your routine? Tulsi tea may be just the answer for you.
Tulsi is also known as Holy Basil and is a member of the mint family. It has a lovely aromatic smell with a warming and delightfully slightly pungent flavor. It has been used and proven its powerful health properties for over 3000 years. It is best known in India as the “incomparable one” because it actually supports just about everything in the body!
Here are 8 reasons why you may want to drink Holy Basil tea:
Boosts your respiratory system by relieving congestion, acting as an expectorant, and opening airways for asthma, bronchitis, coughs and more.
Helps strengthen and modulate the immune system by bolstering the spleen’s response to both bacterial and viral invaders from colds and influenza.
Helps maintain normal blood sugar levels which can benefit those with type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance.
Supports better digestion by helping with gas, bloating, nausea and decreasing appetite. It pairs well with ginger!
Relaxes your nervous system. Holy Basil is considered an adaptogenic herb which is supportive and calming for stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, grief and is good for mind focus.
Drinking Tulsi tea delivers antioxidant protection against free radical damage in your body.
