Tulsi, one of the seven major remedies of Ayurvedic medicine, is effective on all individuals, but especially on the Kapha and Pitta grounds, and is "rasayana", which means that tulsi brings the individual back to health, whatever his problems. Taken daily, it can bring many improvements, promotes the reconstruction of the physically and morally exhausted person.


In addition to eugenol, Tulsi contains a number of other potent antioxidants (phenols and flavonoids), which together are probably responsible for most of the medical effects. In a comparison of several basil species, the antioxidants contained in Indian basil were the strongest.
The classic texts speak of a daily consumption of tulsi to balance the chakras (centers of energy): rebalancing of an excess of mental energy creating a physical stress (via adrenaline/cortisol), reduction of the overflow of ideas with a refocusing in the present and in the intuitive part (ventral area).
