Known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, basil leaves are widely used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and many inflammatory bowel conditions. It contains the molecular substance eugenol, a kind of volatile oil that inhibits the activities of enzymes responsible for swelling and inflammation.

On the other hand, its antioxidant properties equipped the body with unique protection against premature aging, age-related problems, common skin issues and certain types of cancer. Basil can also be used as treatment for conditions like constipation, sinus infections, bronchitis, whooping cough, cold, flu, indigestion, stomach cramps and asthma.

The herb is also an excellent source of Vitamin A (beta-carotene concentration) that helps the body fight against free radical damage. It also inhibits the free radicals from oxidizing cholesterol.
