This herbal formulation has been used effectively in Ayurveda for thousands of years for those with, what we now call, Crohn's. Here are recent Western studies exploring how these herbs work.
"The predominant cause of global morbidity and mortality is lifestyle-related chronic diseases, many of which can be addressed through Ayurveda with its focus on healthy lifestyle practices and regular consumption of adaptogenic herbs. Of all the herbs used within Ayurveda, tulsi or Holy Basil, or tulsi (Ocimum sanctum Linn) is preeminent, and scientific research is now confirming its beneficial effects. There is mounting evidence that tulsi can address physical, chemical, metabolic and psychological stress through a unique combination of pharmacological actions." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4296439/
"Tulsi is one of the principal herbs used in the Ayurvedic medicine system, in which it is known alternately as “The Queen of Herbs,” “The Incomparable One,” and “The Mother Medicine of Nature. It holds a supreme place in the ancient Vedic scriptures and is integrated into daily life by Hindus through religious worship. Hindu homes typically have a tulsi plant growing in an earthen pot in or around the home. In Ayurveda, it is believed that the best way to take tulsi medicinally is in its raw, fresh, whole form as a hot-water infusion." https://www.herbalgram.org/resources/herbalgram/issues/98/table-of-contents/hg98herbpro-holybasil/
Tulsi is not recommended for those who are pregnant or nursing, or those who are trying to become pregnant.
"Crude extract derived from (Shatavari) Asparagus racemosus administered orally at 100 mg kg−1 reduced ulcers in rats that compared with the effects of Ranitidine, a current prescription drug. The extract also decreased gastric acid secretion (Bhatnagar and Sisodia, 2006)." https://www.sciencedirect.com/topics/medicine-and-dentistry/asparagus-racemosus
"Shatavari has been used for millennia as an aphrodisiac and to promote fertility in women and men. The fresh juice of the plants roots is used in several classic formulas claimed to be sexual tonics.1 Used medically by the tribal people of Purandhar in Maharashtra, India for lactation.5 Juice made from the tuberous roots is used in diarrhoea, diabetes and jaundice and juice of whole plant used in urinary disease by local people of Naogaon district, Bangladesh." https://www.saraswatiayurveda.com/blog/2019/9/8/shatavari
"The cinnamaldehyde component of cinnamon is responsible for its anti-microbial activity. It can inhibit the growth of Listeria and Escherichia coli in food products thereby potentiating their shelf life. In one of the studies, the effect of cinnamon was studied against various organisms like bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus, fungus like (Aspergillus flavus, Mucor plumbeus and yeast species such as (Candida lipolytica). Its combination along with clove oil has been effective against A. flavus. The cinnamon oil possesses antimicrobial action in the range 10-150 μg ml − 1. One of the studies investigated the antimicrobial activity of C. zeylanicum against fluconazole resistant Candida. They went ahead and experimented the effect of commercially available preparations in five HIV patients suffering from oral candidiasis. It was concluded that there was improvement in these patients, highlighting the need of further research on this aspect...Cinnamon water extract possesses anti-inflammatory effect in vitro ascribed to fall in levels of tumor necrosis factor α and Interleukin 6. Twigs of C. osmophloeum contain compounds such as trans-cinnamaldehyde, caryophyllene oxide, eugenol, L-borneol which possess anti-inflammatory activity." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4466762/
"Glycyrrhiza has significant anti-inflammatory and antiallergic activity.15, 16 Although both glycyrrhizin and glycyrrhetinic acid bind to glucocorticoid receptors, and much of glycyrrhiza’s anti-inflammatory activity has been explained by its “cortisol-like effects,” many of the effects of glycyrrhiza actually antagonize or counteract cortisol.17 Antagonism to such actions of cortisol includes activation of tryptophan oxygenase, accumulation of hepatic glycogen, stimulation of hepatic cholesterol synthesis, inhibition of thymus atrophy, and inhibition of adrenocorticotropic hormone synthesis and secretion. Glycyrrhizin does, however, reinforce cortisol’s inhibition of antibody formation, stress reaction, and inflammation." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7348626/
