Include Holy basil (Tulsi) in your diet to prevent or control type 2 diabetes

It is claimed that this everyday herb found in almost every Indian household can help manage high blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

Perhaps, holy basil - from the leaves to the seed - is considered a tonic for the body as it may help boost your health in various forms. Low in calorie yet high in essential nutrients. Many people with diabetes include basil in their diet to help lower high blood glucose levels.

Some studies suggested that basil contains compounds that can help increase insulin secretion in people with type 2 diabetes. Research also found that holy basil may help lower fasting and post-meal blood glucose levels, although more work is needed to confirm whether or not the herb can be an effective treatment for diabetes.

Studies have also shown that the herb can be used to help reduce high blood pressure and cholesterol levels. So, if you have prediabetes or type 2 diabetes, using holy basil may help prevent the symptoms of diabetes such as weight gain, insulin resistance, hypertension, high cholesterol, etc.
