Recent studies suggest Tulsi may be a COX-2 inhibitor, like many modern painkillers, due to its high concentration of eugenol.
One study showed it to reduce blood glucose levels in type 2 diabetics when combined with hypoglycaemic drugs.
The same study showed significant reduction in total cholesterol levels with Tulsi. Another study showed its beneficial effect on blood glucose levels is due to its antioxidant properties.
Tulsi also shows some promise for protection from radiation poisoning and cataracts. It has anti-oxidant properties and can repair cells damaged by exposure to radiation.
The fixed oil has demonstrated antihyperlipidemic and cardioprotective effects in rats fed a high fat diet.
A double-blind trial conducted in 2011 suggested that an alcoholic extract of Tulsi modulates immunity, thus promoting immune system function.”

P.S. Please note, due to the whole “freshly picked, dried and posted thing, occasionally it may take an extra couple days to post your order. Not very often, maybe 3x a year, normally when it is raining a lot, and I will do my very best to avoid delays, but as it is a fresh picked product an extra day or two may be needed.
You have been clearly warned, and made fully aware of this before you buy. 😉
