i have mild but chronic fatigue and i always look for an effective adaptogen to restore my energy level,not looking for a "high" just some mild energy lifter and plants extracts are ideal for this purpose.although i respect this company and buy their other products on a regular basis i find this extract to be very uneffective,it's 5:1 extract(written on the bottle but not in the description page) and in fact its the very same product as Planetary Herbals Holy Basil Extract-read the products description to see for yourselves,i guess the 2 companies buy this from a 3rd party manufacurer.anyways,its not an effective formula and although i love the taste of tulsi,after trying the famous Honest Tea Tulsi flavor,i will keep on looking for a better extract to enjoy its effectiveness as an adaptogen,try paradise herbs holy basil instead...you are welcome to rate & read my other reviews
Amazing calm and clarity of mind as well as clearing of sinuses

I am astonished by the lessening of fatigue (CFS symptoms most of my life), even to the point of staying up all night (with short naps) and being able to function next day with no headache. Dizziness usually felt when bending down also much diminished. Shortness of breath with chest pain and congestion and sinusitis following course of antibiotic (Keflex) alleviated within several hours of taking one tablet. Have needed to continue taking only one tablet a day to continue this effect. Another brand had no such results.

I heard about this supplement @ Dr. Oz show and I just received my second order. It has amazing effects during stressfull days and best of all DOES NOT react with other medications, which I take daily. I only use Holy Basil when I need and works every single time. Totally recomend!

This product is good for sleeping. It helps to regulate cortisol levels at night so your body doesn't get overheated. It also seems to help decrease my heart palpitations and waking up in the middle of the night. I prefer Gaia liquid caps but the price difference is substantial.

this has proven better as a sleep aid for me than anything else. if u take it about an hour before u go to bed. ther are some nights nothing helps. when it does work, this is the best.
