Chronic stress contributes to a wide spectrum of health problems.
Holy basil enhances the body’s ability to function optimally in the face of physical, mental and emotional stress. The primary adaptogenic metabolic pathway taken by holy basil is to balance adrenaline, cortisol and corticostrone stress hormone levels. While a certain level of stress is healthy, chronic (on-going) stress is damaging and requires therapeutic intervention.
Balanced levels of stress hormones such as corticosteron promoted by holy basil result in improved cognitive functions such as memory and mental clarity and reduces the risk of age-related degenerative mental disorders.
