Holy basil has been said to have many medicinal properties including healing wounds, fighting bacteria, preventing diabetes, cutting cholesterol, protecting the stomach, protecting joints and boosting your brain. Its most widely popular quality is its ability to relieve stress. There have been multiple clinical studies proving the benefits of holy basil.
The most popular clinical study of holy basil’s effects on stress was published in the 2012 Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine journal. The survey involved 158 participants suffering from moderate stress levels, including headaches, forgetfulness and exhaustion. These individuals were broken into a test group and placebo group and evaluated for six (6) weeks. At the end of this time frame, the test group showed significant decreases in stress-related symptoms. Additionally, none of the participants reported any negative side effects during the experiment.
