(NewsTarget) Tulsi tea originated in India and the tropical regions of Asia over 5,000 years ago. This herbal wonder is respected and honored for its rich antioxidant and adaptogenic properties, both of which are beneficial to reducing stress and promoting mental clarity. Commonly referred to as Holy Basil, this sacred plant is a principle herb in India's holistic health practice of Ayurveda.

Tulsi is renowned for its health-promoting and disease-preventing properties, and is revered as being infused with healing powers. Known for its calming effect, this tropical plant promotes wellness by strengthening the body's immune system. It contains hundreds of favorable phytochemicals - plant compounds containing protective and health-boosting properties. The essential oils in Tulsi's green and purple foliage are an excellent source of these immune-strengthening phytochemicals.

The leaves of this aromatic plant are also rich in antioxidants. These vitally important nutrients help slow down the process of excess oxidation that can occur after prolonged periods of stress, and protect the body from disease by neutralizing free radicals which can harm your cells and tissues.

Tulsi, considered to this day to be one of the holiest plants of modern Indians, contains powerful adaptogens. These are agents that improve the capability of an organism to adapt to stressors. Because of these agents, Tulsi tea, known in the Eastern world as the "Queen of Herbs", can help restore balance to the mind and help relieve stress and tension of daily life by soothing some of the negative effects of stress on the nervous system.

There are many other health benefits of drinking Tulsi tea. These include supporting healthy vision to enhancing respiratory function, increasing metabolism, and helping to support healthy blood sugar levels and digestive health. It can refresh you when you feel tired, help with clarity of the mind, and even aid in supporting normal cholesterol levels.

Known in Ayurvedic practices as the "elixir of life", the tea made from this aromatic shrub has a mild flavor and provides a sweet yet spicy twist to the palate. It is naturally caffeine-free and can be enjoyed either hot or cold by people of all ages.

Most health food stores are now carrying organic Tulsi tea in its original form or mixed with an array of different herbs, spices, and other tea blends.
