It is said to have healing properties.

Modern Research Studies Advocating the Traditional Medicinal Uses of Tulsi in Various Conditions

  1. Respiratory Infections

Many studies have highlighted that Tulsi is a wonderful remedy for alleviating respiratory concerns ranging from mild cough to severe cases like Bronchitis, Emphysema, and Asthma. An In vivo study suggested that this herbal remedy may support the body’s normal response to histamine and improve overall lung functions. 1, 2

  1. Stress Buster

Tulsi is traditionally used as an adaptogen because of its multifarious properties. There is mounting scientific evidence that Tulsi may address physical, chemical, metabolic, and psychological stress through a unique combination of pharmacological actions. 3

  1. Liver Disorders

One of the prime properties of the Tulsi plant is its rejuvenating effects. Results of a clinical study on drug-induced liver-damaged subjects reported that Tulsi showed significant hepatoprotective activity, normalized the levels of liver enzymes and proteins, and also supported the regenerative areas of the liver. 4

  1. Bone and Heart Health

Tulsi’s nutritional profile indicates that it has high levels of Vitamin K, which is an essential nutrient for heart and bone health. A deficiency of Vitamin K is associated with an increased risk of osteoporotic bone fractures since Vitamin K lowers the risk of vascular damage by inhibiting calcium from depositing in the vessel walls. Therefore, Tulsi supplementation helps in maintaining cardiovascular and skeletal health.

  1. Reproductive Health

The different variants of the tulsi plant are said to possess aphrodisiac and libido-enhancing properties. The plant has been tested for conditions like erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. An In vivo analysis indicated that an ethanolic tulsi extract significantly increased sexual behavior without any gastric ulceration or adverse effects. The study also provided scientific evidence in favor of the recommendations made in ayurvedic medicine that tulsi is clinically useful as a sexual invigorator in males. 5

Tulsi Plant has many therapeutic properties, as shown by the following clinical evidence. Research is also showing its potential to treat cancer and diabetes.
