Gave Me My Life Back

Posted by 5528385182679980449 on Jun 22, 2016

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

Posted by AIM-FOR-GOOD-HEALTH on Mar 15, 2016

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

Posted by Reviewer1682273 on Sep 02, 2015

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.

Works for anxiety attacks

Posted by Reviewer1142540 on Jan 19, 2015

I take this mostly for the anxiety attacks, it has a lot of other benefits as well. I take 2 capsules in the late morning and then 2 capsules 2 1/2 hours later. I don't know yet if I have to take it again 2 1/2 hours after the 2nd time or not. Either way, it is well worth it because it keeps me from having anxiety attacks. When I have anxiety attacks, it is difficult to get things done or do anything so. Thank God that something works for it!!! God bless you all.
