Don't let stress sap your mental and physical vitality-fight back with the all-natural herbal power of Holy Basil Extract! For centuries, India's Ayurvedic herbalists have relied on holy basil to address a wide range of health concerns. In modern times herbalists around the world are lauding holy basil as one of nature's most powerful adaptogenic herbs to alleviate the mental and physical effects of stress. Scientific studies suggest that holy basil may help modulate stress-related hormones, maintain healthy blood sugar metabolism, and even act as a COX-2 inhibitor to promote comfortable joint and muscle function.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Kudzu root is another herb that is good for the liver so I want to help my liver be healthy. Just started taking it so I have nothing to go by but what have I got to loose? It won't hurt me, so hopefully it can only help me... December 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Peaceful Helps me relax and smells like Christmas! October 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stuff! I've used Holy Basil for several years and recommended it to friends. It helps level out the emotional "bumpiness" of both every day stress and the transition into menopause. I wouldn't be without it! June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Relaxing Great at bedtime for rest & relaxation. 2 @ bedtime March 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This helps my mood I've been taking this almost two months and I don't know why but it makes me feel happier and more patient and calm. January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Holy Basil Life brings many issues of mental and physical stress. Holy Basil ministers a calming effect to my emotions. December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love that Holy Basil. I'm a big fan of this stuff. It's very calming and relaxing to combat the stress of this crazy day and age. And Swanson's prices are great. I drink Tulsi tea as well. But it's great having the supplements. November 29, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Calmness Taking two with a glass of water on an empty stomach in the morning for the last two weeks and I can clearly see the calmness and presence it helps to create. November 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Culpepper says in his 1620 herbal that basil makes you happy. This outstanding product does indeed improve mood and has also been used in India for centuries. Check it out! November 7, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Eh I'd heard great things about Holy Basil but it didn't do much for me (in this form, at any rate). It also made me burp, and it did have a basil-y taste. For that reason I'm not sure I'll try it again. September 20, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not a good quality extract I decided to open capsule and add it to my tea. In different capsules I found: sand, hard black flakes, something like teapot residue, all was at the bottom of my teacup. Before that I used to make a tea from Swanson Holy Basil leaves capsules without any problems. August 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Holy Basil Great! I take one of these every morning when I wake up and feel great all day! I used to take Sam-e but didn't get the noticeable improvement that I do with Holy Basil. Everyone I have recommended it to or given some to that tried it, has found it just as helpful! August 7, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by This is a good product gives a lively sense and helps to vigorously exercise performance. July 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A Great Product! A good overall immune support supplement that I have found to be an excellent value @ Swanson, and highly recommended. June 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This product is a great help with stress, I don't know how it works but it does. No need for a glass of wine to un-wine, two a day is all I need. A friend takes two twice a day and she said that it helps her keep her cool when under stress. I know it has helped me stay cool even with four Grandchildren! June 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ahummmmmmmmmmmmm People tell me I don't seem to let anything bother me I look so calm. I tend to be on edge and impatient. Tulsi has made a HUGE difference. May 12, 2013
