Relaxing Great at bedtime for rest & relaxation. 2 @ bedtime March 27, 2014
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
Holy Basil Life brings many issues of mental and physical stress. Holy Basil ministers a calming effect to my emotions. December 17, 2013
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
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
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
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
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
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
This is a good product gives a lively sense and helps to vigorously exercise performance. July 8, 2013
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
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
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
calming herb When you feel stressed, this calms you without side effects. May 7, 2013
Surprising results I feel more energetic and am thinking more clearly since taking this product. May 2, 2013
Great Product Holy Basil Extract,has proved to be every thing I expected,from rhis extract and more. April 28, 2013
Great Product This Holy Basil helps me relax and sleep and I wouldn't be without it. I also love the many varieties of Holy Basil (Tulsi) Tea that Swanson sells. April 27, 2013
Holy basil I've noticed a better mind set and more relaxation after taking the holy basil. It doesn't leave me groggy or tired. It made me feel more like myself without a drugged feeling. Thank you. April 25, 2013
Disappointed Disappointed. The product was ineffective. April 4, 2013
holy basil has a calming effect on my heart. taking with ashwaghanda + arjuna....old indian remedies. March 13, 2013
still unsure if it works or not March 5, 2013
I needed something to calm my nerves and to help modulate stress related effects on my mental and physical self. My doctor was my first recommendation to try Holy Basil, and so I did. I will continue to keep it near for daily use. March 3, 2013
Remarkable quality for the price Many of the herbs from India are questionable as to ingredients and quality. Also there is the issue of sourcing and safety. This is the best Tulsi (Holy Basil) that I have found. I am surprised that Swanson has such an inside track on quality and sourcing. And it is appreciated by so many of us. March 3, 2013
As I seem to feel stress more as I age, I ordered Holy Basil as my first order here at Swanson. Within a week, I really noticed a good change on how I can take and handle stress. This has been so good for me! I'll not be without it. August 5, 2012
Good herb Calm my nerves and makes me happy :) May 24, 2012
