I love this product - its well balanced and its not too strong. I'm not a fan of megadoses. The more of one thing you take, the more you push something else out of balance. This is a perfect ratio and amount for someone on a good diet who may be in need of a little extra help with overall immunity and adrenal support.
I usually have grave trouble with magnesium, even the oil. My body needs it but just doesn't like it. This is different. My body loves this product. Capsules, ie, no fillers, mean purity, and for anyone with low stomach acid, the citrate is a perfect partner to the magnesium. It is very easily absorbed and I've noticed my muscle strength and stamina is much better after taking this. I will keep buying this.

I'm 45, but have always looked really young for my age. I bought this product in response to noticing a few natural symptoms of time, time started to catch up with me. What I didn't expect is that this product has pretty much resolved my insomnia, which was possibly a symptom of hormonal imbalance (which I've had since age 25!)I can't even take the recommended dose or it makes me zombie like the next day. I take 3 sprays before bed and if I wake in the middle of the night I'll take another spray. That is enough for me to get 7-8 hours of good sleep. In terms of the other effects of anti-aging, I can't comment as yet, but if I notice anything as dramatic as this sleep enhancement I shall surely report it :)

Butchers broom contains a steroid that is amazing at reducing inflammation and it makes my feel very positive. It's like an upper! Inflammation had been an issue for a long time for me and this is one of the very few things my body can handle. It is also good for your skin and hair I've discovered from reading forums, so I wait for those results in myself... too soon yet. It blocks an enzyme responsible for breaking down elasticity in the skin, the mucosa and many other types of tissue. I've had reactive gastritis over the past few years and hoping this will also strengthen my mucosal lining via that particular action. Very happy with the product and the price.

I have used this product on and off for the past few years for stress. It is very powerful in lowering elevated cortisol at night and I BELIEVE it also lowers my excess estrogen where so many other products fail. Recenetly I hit menopause,and exerienced hot flushes - very weird sensation. My estrogen is sky high comparted to my progesterone, which was zero at last count. I had not been tsaking this product and then I remembered it. In the midle of a sleepless night I took a capsuel. Within 30 minutes I fell asleep again after trying everything (5HTP, melatonin, calcium, magnesium,. lemon balm). Nothing had worked until I took the holy basil. The flush also stopped and did not come back! I am in awe of this product for all adrenal related issues from stress to menopause.

As a histamine intolerant person I look this with the understanding that it was safe, based on an article I read by a naturopath. I really wish they'd get their facts straight. Now I have to wait for months or so for my hair to grow back. I will never buy this product again. For the non histamine person it's probably great

I don't know if this worked to help me detox - I still disp[layed the same symptoms with detoxing sulphur as I did before. I did notice it made me lethargic after about 5 days use and that I had bags under my eyes. For me it was a mojo zapper! I went to half a pill a day (hard to cut!) and the symptoms didn't subside. I've decided to eat a lot more legumes to get my molybdenum, it's safer for me

I give this to my dog and I take it myself, both for joint mobility. It works!
I've tried a few brands and this one is the best. I usually take 50 mg but even cut in half, therefore making its enteric coating redundant, this tablet doesn't hurt my stomach. It really is an excellent way to keep your serotonin levels healthy. But don't take too many as cortisol rises with serotonin, so if you push the boundaries you'll end up sleepy and stressed (ie heart pounding, body under stress) at the same time! That's what happens to me if I take more than I need.

So easy to take! Calcium interferes with so many other supplements that the fact it is so easily and quickly absorbed makes life very simple, only having to wait 30 mins before taking anything else. I have been very calcium deficient due to overactive thyroid and so I can see results and reactions pretty quickly as my body is starved and I'm very sensitive to things. I'd have to wait a month before reviewing its effectiveness properly but so far it does not cause constipation which so many other forms do, and I feel it is effective, in relaxing me.
