Tulsi, A Respiratory Help
Tulsi leaves have been mentioned in Ayurvedic treatises as beneficial in Swasa (breathing difficulties) and Kasa (cough). When a comparison was made with research studies to find further evidence, it was seen that active constituents like eugenol, methyl eugenol, saponins and ursolic acid present in dried leaf powder could be responsible for the herb’s bronchodilator activity*. Sutraveda Organic Tulsi caplet contains the dried powder of Tulsi leaves in an adequate strength of 200 mg which helps in clearing the airways and aid comfortable breathing.
The adaptogenic effects of Tulsi are also attributed to its peculiar combination of constituents. Eugenol and caryophyllene are the most imperative adaptogen agents present in the herb and are beneficial in lowering corticosterone levels, imparting mental clarity and calmness*. The antioxidant properties of the herb aid healthy and proper functioning of the heart*, and altogether address the psychological, physiological, immunological, and metabolic stresses of modern living.

The most commonly used part of Tulsi is the leaf (dried or fresh), which is known to contain several bioactive compounds like Ursolic acid, eugenol etc. These active constituents are primarily responsible for the inflammatory support* provided by the herb. A study* with ethanolic tulsi leaf extract that shown enhanced immune response with increased Natural Killer (NK) and T-helper cells, substantiate its role in maintaining healthy immunity as well.
Inspired by the Ancient Art Form Kathakali
While we were brainstorming for our label design and tried to understand what inspires us the most, we ended up looking at dance, music & the fine arts! That's when we decided that we will pay tribute to the cultural heritage of the world. We started with the closest one to home. Kathakali.
Kathakali is one of the most fascinating traditional art forms in India’s rich cultural heritage. The intensely complex heavy theatrical makeup of the performing artists, the surreal picturesque costumes, unbelievably graceful gestures combined with an equally glorious and harmonically tuned background music is indeed a visual treat.
Most often, the ancient mythological stories constitute the main theme of Kathakali which represents the aesthetic cultural heritage of India. The strikingly graceful dramatic art took form and became more popular after the 17th century and has evolved beautifully ever since. The performance may last as long as 16 hours and takes the audience through a realistic yet very mystical experience.
Our love for art is a journey that we just started out. So we will be showcasing more art forms from different parts of the world on our labels. Keep an eye out for more, if you have more ideas please feel free to ping us.
Because The Earth
Thousands of years ago, when the wisdom of Ayurveda formulations was conceived, the entire herbs in this earth were organic. Ayurveda proposes that the individual is an integral part of mother Nature. Hence the harmful chemicals used in Nature will lead to serious after-effects in the individual. It is mentioned in Ayurveda, that any herb grown in a polluted environment loses its innate Rasa (taste), Guna (qualities), virya (potency) Gandha (smell), etc, thus affecting its pharmaceutical actions. The cultivation of plants whether for consumption or medicinal use should be done sustainably, with minimum interaction from chemicals, to ensure good health and longevity, creating a more positive impact on mental and emotional health. Ayurveda, a holistic wisdom of health, places immense importance on the purity of herbs. We at Organic Ayurveda Inc by Sri Dhanvanthari Madom believe healing herbs need to be as pure as certified organic, sourced sustainably, consumed responsibly.
