Holy basil: Beneficial for the kidneys…

Not only from a religious point of view, but from a medicinal perspective too, Tulsi has endless value. In Ayurveda, it is considered as the destroyer of all the doshas. The tulsi benefits are many and people also chew raw leaves regularly to reap these benefits.
  • One of the tulsi plant uses is that its leaves have a strengthening effect on the kidneys.
  • Tulsi, being a detoxifier and a mild diuretic, helps to reduce the uric acid level in the body, which is the main culprit as far as kidney stones are concerned.
  • It also helps to clean out the kidneys through increased frequency of urination. Acetic acid and certain components in tulsi essential oils also facilitate dissolution of the stones.
  • Since holy basil has painkiller effect, it also reduces the impact of pain that causes due to stone in the kidney.
