Interviewer: What are the benefits of organic holy basil?
Dr. Stern: When I was making my "relax" formula, my focus was to help people get a deeper healthier night sleep. I was trying to figure out what's the best herbs were that could use - vitamins, minerals, to support your adrenal glands, to help you get a great night's sleep.
The reason why people tend not to get a great night's sleep is because they're stressed, their cortisol levels go up.
Cortisol impairs their sleep ability, it impairs their natural production of melatonin. So, I had to decrease their nighttime cortisol to assist in this process. Holy basil and magnolia are two of the best herbs you can take to reduce nighttime cortisol.
There are other herbs that can affect nighttime cortisol, but they also might increase your body's energy, and I didn't want to put someone in a position where all of a sudden, they're going to be all jacked up before they go to bed.
So the reason why I use holy basil in my relax formula is because it is amazing at lowering those nighttime cortisol levels, allowing your body to naturally produce melatonin, and allowing your body to get a really healthy nighttime sleep.
