Holy Basil [Ocimum tenuiflorum (also known as Ocimum sanctum)] has been shown to possess powerful adaptogenic properties and has been used to enhance the body's ability to respond to stress and minimize the negative effects of stress on the body. In addition, animal studies have demonstrated that Holy Basil can support carbohydrate metabolism and, as a result, healthy blood glucose levels. Holy Basil is revered as a sacred plant in Ayurveda, the traditional therapeutic system of India.

I tend to sweat the small stuff, and get emotional easily. This product has made a change in my mood that everyone around me has noticed. I also have noticed my blood sugar levels have stabilized, I dont get dizzy or clamy anymore if I have waited a little to long to eat. I love this product and will continue to take it every day!!
I've tried so many supplements, medicine and methods to help me sleep better or deal with anger/anxiety. But none have worked so well as Holy Basil. It calms me down without sedating me. I've become so laid back and relaxed I almost feel like a different person! It has helped my inter-personal relationships greatly. This is a must-have for me.

Helpful with adrenals
Gave Me My Life Back

I've suffered from adrenal fatigue for at least a year, and only when I started using this did it finally start to go away Granted, I had to use a lot more than what's recommended on the bottle... 5-6 capsules, 3x a day. But it works. Now I'm not fatigued all day and I can get back to living my life. I've always respected NOW for its quality and decent prices, but now I love them. Thank you!! I've tried another brand and it wasn't nearly as effective as this one. I needed to almost double the dose just to get the same effect... and the prices are the same.
Didn't notice any obvious effects for anxiety

Holy Basil didn't seem to do much for me. Herbs tend to be a very individual thing. What works for one doesn't for another at times if the underlying cause is somewhat different. In the end I resolved my issue by addressing over-stressed adrenals (a common problem in today's society!) and took the herb Schizandra - miracle stuff. This has a powerful sedative action by reducing the production of cortisol, the stress hormone produced by your adrenals which can happen when they are stressed. In my experience it is critical to get to the root cause of your symptoms in order to succeed in aiming for good health. It pays to see a Naturopath or Herbalist for some advice, although in this case I worked it out for myself, the slow and painful way - 9 years of searching lead me to Schizandra, a major Chinese herb with wonderful benefits.

Great Mood Improver

I started taking this when I heard the virtues of taking Holy Basil. I take it every day now, and can notice a real negative change in my mood when I forget to take it.
