Did you know?
Basil’s an excellent herb to incorporate into any diet. Basil contains an essential oil called eugenol, a substance that’s also found in over-the-counter painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory, which means that adding more basil can help with those aches and pains so common after a workout or strenuous activity. Basil also provides a good dose of magnesium, which helps blood vessels relax, contributing to better cardiovascular health.
