Are you stressed out?

Stress is the new norm! Why not take charge of your life? Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum or Holy Basil) is a member of the mint family.Though it is closely related to the sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum) frequently used in cooking, holy basil has a much richer history. Tulsi is a sanskrit word meaning "The Incomparable One".In Ayurvedic medicine, holy basil has been used to treat a variety of conditions - everything from the common cold to bronchitis to fever to certain digestive complaints, including ulcers.The most compelling data, however, suggests that holy basil possesses its greatest potential in the areas of stress relief and relaxation. And in the fast paced world in which we live, these findings may prove to be extremely significant.Stress is a normal and natural part of everyday life. Stress occurs when the demands placed upon us exceed our body's ability to cope. The body's response to stress, often referred to as the “flight-or-fight” response, occurs automatically at these times.
It's when stress becomes chronic, or on-going, that it can create problems. Stress hormones have other, not-so-obvious effects. They play a role in metabolism, inflammation, and immune system responses. So when our body is continually stressed, that is, continually bombarded by high levels of cortisol and corticosterone, our digestive function can become impaired - leading to increased appetite and weight gain, our nervous system can be damaged - leading to anxiety or depression, and our immune system can be suppressed - leading to sickness or even autoimmune diseases.It is therefore imperative to not let our stress take over our lives. Tulsi is a COX-2 inhibitor and also has natural salicylic acid. So, stress related acne or hormonal acne can be relieved with Tulsi. Tulsi is present in Skinveda's Tulsi Pore Refiner, as well as Rose Sesame Masque and Ashwamilla Toner and Amlaki Cocoin Milk. For more information visit:
