Basil is a common herb in most of our kitchens. Besides smelling and tasting good, it is an excellent alternative health treatment for many ailments.
Reduces anxiety and tension: Basil can be used as an anti-stress agent. Drinking basil tea helps release cortisol, the body's main stress hormone.
Cures stomach problems such as acidity: Eating or drinking basil may help regulate acid secretion in the stomach, and prevent chest pain, heartburn as well as gastroesophageal reflux.
Regulates the menstrual cycle: Eating basil during the menstrual cycle may help compensate the blood lost during menstrual period as it has a good amount of iron.
