This delicious tulsi smoothie will help soothe your nerves and clear the clutter from your mind.
Tulsi or Holy Basil, was used by ancient cultures for its healing and rejuvenating qualities.
In India, it is considered a sacred plant with sattvic characteristics. It is pungent, heating, dry, and light, simultaneously promoting mental clarity and calming the nervous system. Studies confirm its many therapeutic benefits including its use as an adaptogen. Adaptogens improve your body's ability to adapt to stress (e.g., a hectic schedule, heat or cold, high altitude). Tulsi has also been shown to help the body cope with stress, anxiety, and fatigue, promote healthy blood sugar levels already in the normal range, and support the immune, respiratory, and digestive systems!
It’s easy to see why including a daily dose of tulsi can help you feel and look amazing! Try it for breakfast or a mid-afternoon break.
