Each year at Expo West in Anaheim, CA, Hanna’s Herb Shop checks out what’s new and coming up in the world of natural products and holistic healing, and we love to learn new ways we can bring better health to you. While we are leaning about new products, our sister company Kroeger Herb will be sharing their two newest Complete Concentrates with the world, Ashwagandha and Holy Basil.
 
It’s no secret that everyone at Kroeger and Hanna’s Herb Shop loves adaptogenic herbs and the amazing positive impact they have on our bodies and with the addition of these two adaptogenic powerhouses, there’s even more to be excited about.
 
Ashwagandha is said to have the power of 10 horses because of the benefits it provides to the body as it recovers from illness, stress, or chronic symptoms. This adaptogen has been celebrated in ancient medicine and continues to be praised today, especially for how it eases symptoms of stress and anxiety, as well as pain. Like other adaptogens, Ashwagandha provides a boost to the immune system and benefits brain function, sleep patterns, and energy levels.
 
Holy Basil is the most praised of all Ayurvedic herbs and is the most beneficial of all adaptogenic herbs for brain and mood disorders. From depression and stress to headaches or complaints of how to deal with emotional difficulties, Holy Basil relaxes the mind and benefits the brain. Aside from these positive impacts on the body, Holy Basil also reduces inflammation, eases skin issues (eczema, psoriasis, rashes), and can help to prevent premature aging by reversing cell and tissue damage while sweeping free radicals from the system due to its high antioxidant levels.
 
This is only a glimpse at the benefits of Ashwagandha and Holy Basil and their adaptogenic benefits. If you’d like to learn more about how these herbs can boost your mood, immune system, improve brain function, and so much more, check out these blog posts:

The Sacred Power of Holy Basil

Do you have someone in your life that you’d refer to as a “breath of fresh air”? You know the type …they walk in the room and everyone feels a little better, smiles a bit bigger, and the energy in the room changes for the better. I can think of a few people in my life who have this impact but I can also relate this feeling to my lifestyle choices I make with diet and exercise. Following a yoga class I feel calm but am energized for the day and after a healthy meal I feel satisfied and pleased with the clean fuel I’ve put into my body. The herbal supplements I choose have the same positive impact on my system and just as I have people or activities that serve as a breath of fresh air in my life, so too is Holy Basil for my energy, stress levels, and immune system. As an adaptogenic herb that supports whole body health, this shining star of Ayurvedic medicine can benefit you in a positive way as well. Take a look at why Kroeger Herb is including this dynamic and powerful herb in their Complete Concentrates line.

The Most Praised Ayurvedic Herb – Holy Basil

Ayurveda is the traditional therapeutic system of India and means “life knowledge” in Sanskrit. The life knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine combines herbs and practices to improve and maintain health with several of the herbs being adaptogenic, which support the system as a whole and provide benefits to the entire body. One of the most praised Ayurvedic herbs is Holy Basil, the “elixir of life”. What makes Holy Basil a standout among other herbs is that it enhances the body’s ability to cope with and minimize stress while increasing vitality and energy. As if those benefits weren’t enough in themselves, Holy Basilcan also address hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular problems. Also known as Tulsi or the “incomparable one” in Ayurvedic medicine, Holy Basil is proving to be an incredible adaptogenic asset for overall good health.

Adaptogens work to increase your body’s own ability to fight off an illness before it sets in which is a direct contrast to modern drugs which “attack” specific disease symptoms after you’re sick. Holy Basil is especially helpful for people who are overloaded, overworked, and stressed but need to increase performance levels. Studies have shown that Holy Basil oil has incredible antioxidant properties (which may explain its effectiveness in reducing the damaging effects that stress has on the body). In addition, Holy Basil seems to influence the neurochemistry of the brain in a way similar to antidepressant medications but without the side effects or possible dependency that can occur. While having a positive impact on the brain, Holy Basil also promotes longevity and helps to balance hormones in the body.

The Holy Herb

Holy Basil is indigenous to the Indian subcontinent and has been celebrated there for hundreds of years for its strong anti-tumoral properties and antioxidant effect to protect the body against free radicals and the havoc they can cause to the body, inside and out. As a cardioprotective medicine, Holy Basil promotes good heart health and proper circulation. Can you see now why it’s referred to as the “incomparable one”? Its beneficial properties do not end there. It’s an immunity booster, and preparations have been used to treat the common cold and ward off infection.

A sacred plant and a religious practice in which Hindus worship every morning and evening, Holy Basil is believed to be a manifestation of the goddess of wealth and a principle consort of Vishnu (that’s why it is sometimes referred to as Vaishnavi, or belonging to Vishnu). While tree worship is not uncommon in Hinduism, Holy Basil is regarded as the holiest of plants because it is the threshold between heaven and earth. Every part of the plant is considered sacred, even the soil in which it is planted.

For hundreds of years Indians have used it for skin disorders including blisters, rashes, insect bites, eczema, and psoriasis.

Holy Basil is a Wonder for Stress & Skin Disorders

Holy Basil is used in Ayurveda medicine to treat numerous health disorders and is particularly helpful for reducing depression, stress, mental tension, emotional difficulties, anxiety as well as for the treatment of common colds, headaches, stomach disorders, inflammation, heart disease, various forms of poisoning, and malaria. For hundreds of years Indians have used it for skin disorders including blisters, rashes, insect bites, eczema, and psoriasis. It can also help to break up kidney stones, improve night blindness, regenerate tissues, and reduces inflammation on joints and bones.

As a great immune system support, Holy Basil is a natural immune-modulator; promotes healthy metabolism; helps with digestion and gastrointestinal problems; premature aging; reduces cell and tissue damage from harmful sun rays, radiation therapy and other radiation sources; relieves inflammation from arthritis and other diseases; and helps fight infections. There are so many benefits for the system from adaptogens that taking a variety of them over time will provide a higher quality of life. Few herbs have gained such widespread recognition for their health giving properties as Holy Basil.

Please remember that with taking adaptogens, as with any herbal product, benefits won’t be seen overnight so approach their use with patience. The power in adaptogens is that you are supporting your entire body with the use of one herb and assisting your system in adapting to the changes in environment, mood, immune support, and so on. However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, don’t take the medicinal dose. Also don’t be afraid to experiment with adaptogens to find the herb that will work best for your system and your specific needs. We’ve shared posts about other adaptogenic wonders like Schizandra or Ashwaganda, and hope you’ll look into how you can address a range of complaints naturally. Learn more about adaptogens.

Powerful Adaptogens – Herbs for Whole Body Health

In the world of herbal remedies there are several choices for ailments; feverfew for migraines, turmeric for inflammation, or bilberry for eye support, for example. Having a this-for-that approach to herbal medications is a great concept but also presents some of us with skepticism for adaptogens which enhance the body’s overall function, not a specific condition or ailment. Powerful adaptogens, or “longevity herbs” as they are referred to in the East, have been used for thousands of years to maintain the body’s vitality and are catching on in the West.

 Certain icons throughout history are so important we are unable to overlook them.

Certain icons throughout history are so important we are unable to overlook them. They have left such a lasting impression on our society that their mark will go down in history, forever remembered for their strength. In the world of herbs and natural health, Ginseng is one of those icons.

Ginseng – an Herbal Icon of Life

ginseng

By the early 1900s, stories of ginseng’s soul-strengthening, eye-brightening, and heart-opening abilities had spread so far that Korea could no longer keep up with the world-wide demand. Deep in the Manchuria Mountains of China,Ginseng was originally used as food, but the positive effect the root had on villagers was undeniable. By the third century AD, ginseng was so highly valued for its strength-giving and rejuvenating powers that it had become an emblem of life itself. The demand for ginseng root had become so high that it fueled the Chinese silk trade in Korea. Many Chinese emperors revered the herb so strongly that they were willing to pay buckets of gold for a single root, in hopes of becoming the strongest and most agile emperor in history. Ginseng became an icon of health and life.

Modern research has provided us with copious amounts of information about the miracle root Ginseng. With more than 28 therapeutic elements, ginseng is rich in vitamins and minerals, and can truly help the body in a natural way. Ginseng is one of the few herbs known as an adaptogen. Ginseng has led the way for adaptogen herbs throughout most of the world, and is now widely available as an herbal tincture.

The Power of Adaptogens

Adaptogen herbs get their name from their “adaptable” traits. Adaptogens interact with each body in a unique way. By regulating various hormones, these powerful herbs can provide all-over body support. Cherished in ancient medicine as “longevity herbs,” adaptogens harmonize with your body, providing a multitude of benefits. Among the most well-known adaptogens in the western world is Schizandra, made popular by Dr. Oz, who called the herb a miracle remedy for anti-aging. Schizandra is called the “Eastern Prince” for its power and strength. Several herbs provide benefits similar to Schizandra and Ginseng. In fact, other herbs may even address your personal needs more directly.

An Elixir of Life – Tulsi

Holy Basil (Tulsi)

Holy Basil has been taken for decades to promote longevity of life

Tulsi, also known as Holy Basil, is referred to as an “elixir of life” in Ayurveda. Also thought to promote longevity, Tulsi helps balance hormones in the body. The herb will benefit type 2 diabetics by reducing blood glucose levels, and may reduce cholesterol. Like many adaptogens, Tulsi is rich in antioxidants, which gives it strong anti-tumoral properties, protects the body from radiation, and scavenges for free radicals. As a cardioprotective medicine, Tulsi promotes good heart health. Its beneficial properties do not end there—an immunity booster, Tulsi preparations have been used to treat the common cold and ward off infection!

Ashwagandha – Ginseng’s potent and undiscovered cousin

Also an Indian herb, Ashwagandha is slowly gaining popularity among health and wellnessenthusiasts. Known as Indian Ginseng by some, Ashwagandha interacts with the body’s Thyroid. By regulating Thyroid hormones, Ashwagandha can provide relief for a number of ailments. In ancient times, the herb was applied directly to tumors. Its antioxidant properties may slow the growth of cancer cells. As with many adaptogens, the herb will help regulate blood glucose levels and therefore may be beneficial to diabetics. Ostearthritis patients may also take interest in Ashwagandha, as it can provide symptom and pain relief. The herb is naturally sedative, and can help ease stress and anxiety. Along with antioxidants and medicinal compounds, Ashwagandha  is a great source of iron. Its high iron content will increase hemoglobin levels, which is beneficial to anemic patients.
