Description

Basil is a delicious, leafy green herb that comes from Asia and Africa. It gives lemony aftertaste to tomato dishes, salads, zucchini, eggplant, meat condiments, stuffing, soups, sauces and more. It is a member of the mint family and there are many different varieties. Popular as a food seasoning, this aromatic herb is also used in teas and supplements that can provide a number of health benefits. Basil is not only a popular folk medicine for diseases such as nausea and insect bites, but is also widely used in traditional Chinese medicine, Ayurvedic medicine and other holistic medicine systems. Today, scientists are studying possible medicinal benefits of basil. Extracts or essential oils of basil, which provide concentrated amounts of plant compounds, are usually tested instead of whole leaves. Preliminary studies show that basil:
  • Reduces memory loss associated with stress and aging.
  • Reduces depression associated with chronic stress.
  • Reduces the damage of a stroke and supports recovery, whether given before or immediately after a stroke.
  • Improves fasting blood sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides.
  • Reduces blood pressure in people with hypertension.
  • Relaxes blood vessels and dilute your blood, similar to aspirin.
  • Protects against aspirin damage in your gut, especially preventing ulcers.
  • Prevents certain cancers, including breast, colon and pancreas.
  • Increases mental alertness when inhaled as aromatherapy.
  • Inhibits the growth of bacteria that cause dental decay.
  • Improves food safety, such as if incorporated into food packaging by manufacturers.
  • It provides an alternative to antibiotics for infectious diseases, including the fight against antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria.
  • Repel insects, such as mosquitoes and ticks.
