What is the difference between holy basil and the herb, basil, used in food preparation?
They are different species. Holy basil (Ocimum sanctum) is a member of the mint, or Labiatae, family. Though it is closely related to the sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum) frequently used in cooking, holy basil has long been used for its health-supportive properties. Holy basil is a powerful antioxidant which has been shown to support stress relief and relaxation, healthy immune system function, and optimal gastrointestinal health.
What is a supercritical extract? Why is it important?
Supercritical extraction uses carbon dioxide (CO2) under extremely high pressure to isolate key components found in botanical extracts. Chemical solvents, such as acetone or hexane, are not involved in this processing. The extraction involves low temperatures, ensuring the ingredients are not affected by high heat that could alter or weaken the beneficial compounds. Supercritical processing is used to concentrate or isolate the herb's lipophilic (or 'fat-loving') components. The supercritical extract found in Holy Basil Trinity Blend™ stress management formula is standardized to provide high levels of the lipophilic constituents, eugenol and caryophyllene, both of which have been studied for their stress-relieving benefits.
