This week for 1 minute videos,

I’m focusing on some of the world’s healthiest teas.

Today…Tulsi Tea


Tulsi tea, also known as Holy Basil, has been used in Ayurvedic medicine in India for thousands of years (1,2). It is considered the most popular beverage in India. In fact, it’s so common that many families in India grow the plant in their homes. (2)

The main health benefit for Tulsi/holy basil is that it is an adaptogen. An adaptogen is “a non-toxic substance that will increase your resistance to stress…fatigue…anxiety, and trauma.” (2)

See the infographic and today’s 1 minute video below for other health benefits.

Until next time…

Namaste my friends.

About Tamara Hoerner (1215 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
