Enjoy Great Sex & Stress Reduction
Using Holy Basil & Tulsi Tea

Holy basil (also known as Tulsi) is a plant that has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for a variety of things such as improving sex, reducing stress and decreasing symptoms of the common cold, influenza, diabetes, asthma, headaches, heart disease and the list goes on and on. However, it is most often used for reducing stress as it provides those who take it with a sense of well-being without feeling drowsy.

Research of Holy Basil found that those taking 500 mg of holy basil leaf extract twice a day after meals for 60 days showed decreases in anxiety, stress and depression in those who have chronic anxiety. This is because holy basil / tulsi is an Adaptogen which helps to reduce the effects of stress on the body. Many people drink tulsi tea while others take supplements typically referred to as holy basil.

A less commonly known effect is that holy basil also may help increase sex drive (libido) as it can increase testosterone levels. Testosterone is an androgen (sex hormone) produced by both males and females and plays a role in both puberty and fertility. An interesting thing to note in animal studies was that despite an overall increase in testosterone there was a reduction of sperm count in males.

While there are no studies with regard to sexual performance and enjoyment, it is documented that stress can impede one's sexual functioning as well as sex drive. Thus, it is easy to conclude that simply by reducing stress levels through taking holy basil / tulsi one may find that they are more open to sexual activity and have better responsiveness to sex by simply being in a more relaxed state.

Most people find that they feel a sense of feeling like 'everything is going to be all right' after taking holy basil or tulsi and feel a sense of calm without any sedation or fatigue. The effect after taking it in either supplement form or in tulsi tea is within about 30 minutes and the effects last for several hours. Taking it on a regular basis can create a constant feeling of calm.

Is Holy Basil / Tulsi Safe?

Studies of holy basil / tulsi have not shown that there are any major health risks in taking it other than making sure that you are aware that it is a natural blood thinner. Thus, being aware of any issues, whether they are health conditions or medication interactions which affect blood clotting should be considered.
