Relax Holy Basil
Relax (Holy Basil) relies on the ancient, Asian medicinal properties of the powerful herb holy Basil to reduce stress. Holy Basil works primarily as an antioxidant, but it also has anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. It is one of the most powerful herbs found anywhere on the planet.
When the body experiences stress, the adrenal glands release an excess of hormones that cause symptoms such as headaches, increased heart rate, and anxiety. You experience the same adrenaline response that you would if your life was threatened. The problem is that your life is not being threatened. The fight-or-flight response that is programmed into our body for survival is supposed to be ONLY for survival. It is very tasking and leaves your body in a deteriorated shape.[/sdf_text_block][sdf_text_block id=”sdf-element-1″ module_width=”1/1″ top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”” text_alignment=”left” font_family=”” font_size=”” text_color=”” entrance_animation=”No” entrance_animation_duration=”” link=”” link_title=”” target=”_blank” nofollow=”yes” class=””]
Holy Basil contains the compounds Eugenol and caryophyllene which are responsible for giving the plant its pleasant smell. These compounds alone can elevate your mood by the healing aroma it emits. However, it is the eugenol that is primarily responsible for the stress-relief properties because is what binds to stress hormones cortisol and corticosterone so that they may be removed as water soluble wastes from the body through urination. Holy Basil is also widely used for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and anti-aging properties so there are a variety of secondary benefits from regular use.[/sdf_text_block][/sdf_col][/sdf_row]
