The latest product from Total Life Changes, Immuni-Tea, targets two of your body’s most important systems: digestion and defenses. Part of its power comes from the introduction of an ingredient that’s new to TLC’s line of supplements, but well-known to practitioners of holistic and traditional medicine around the world: extract from tulsi.
Tulsi, also known as holy basil, comes originally from India and has been a part of Ayurvedic medicine for over 3,000 years. Ayurveda focuses on proactive lifestyle choices and encourages adding herbs into the diet that promote a healthy balance of mind, body, and spirit. Practitioners of Ayurvedic medicine believe a healthy body has a proper balance of life energies, and when that balance is disrupted, we become unwell. Tulsi is used to help maintain that balance.
Holy basil’s widespread use in traditional medicine has inspired scientists to study its possible effects in a more controlled, laboratory environment. Their findings have supported what Ayurveda’s followers have understood all along.
In a 2017 study published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, researchers learned that tulsi has properties that could make it an effective treatment for a number of common problems.
Another study, published in the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine, offers evidence that also suggests tulsi can be useful for supporting our defense system.
Of course, everyone agrees that more studies should be conducted, and that diet and exercise play an important role in keeping you feeling your best. Most importantly, the studies agree that tulsi is safe to use, showing no ill effects in study participants.
TLC is excited to add this classic ingredient to the latest addition to its successful line of teas. It’s a powerful new tool to helping you achieve your health and wellness goals, and we look forward to hearing about your results when you drink it. With Immuni-Tea, you’ll understand why we say that Total Life Changes gets you the products you can feel!
