Tulsi is a naturally sweet, ancient powerhouse used and revered for its immune-strengthening, antioxidant-rich properties that promote overall wellbeing. In addition, tulsi is anti-inflammatory and greatly beneficial to the health of the skin and hair. While tulsi has a long list of medicinal properties, it is most commonly celebrated for being an adaptogen. Adaptogens, among many things, help balance the negative effects of metabolic stress (blood sugar, pressure, and lipid levels) and psychological stress (memory, cognitive function, and antidepressant).
Ginger not only helps to soothe your digestive tract when consumed; its beneficial properties can actually accumulate in the gut to create a healthier, more resilient environment as time goes on. Another antioxidant rich friend, ginger is a lively awakener that benefits the whole body.

Peppercorn is a healer with disease-fighting agents that boost your immunity. Big Heart uses Malabar black peppercorn from India's coast because it's known for being fruity and bold.
Cinnamon, we love thee! You're anti-inflammatory, and heart-healthy. Those with diabetes might benefit from cinnamon, too, because it's been shown to lower insulin and cholesterol in animals. Cinnamon even shows promise to protect against brain damage and neurodegenerative disease such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, and “upregulates” (boosts) positive hormones in the brain!
Allspice berries bring more than a warm spicy aura. Hailing from Jamaica and carrying hints of nutmeg, peppercorn, juniper, and more (hence its name "allspice"), these little guys have many beneficial compounds, including some that protect against disease. Allspice berries are packed with antioxidants and polyphenols, and their antibacterial quality helps fight bad breath and protect against bugs and infections.
