Holy Basil [Ocimum tenuiflorum (also known as Ocimum sanctum)] has been shown to possess powerful adaptogenic properties and has been used to enhance the body's ability to respond to stress and minimize the negative effects of stress on the body. In addition, animal studies have demonstrated that Holy Basil can support carbohydrate metabolism and, as a result, healthy blood glucose levels already within the normal range.* Holy Basil is revered as a sacred plant in Ayurveda, the traditional therapeutic system of India.

I began using Now brand Holy Basil in September 2012, as an attempt to improve Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, from which I have suffered for 22 years. My illness was originally diagnosed by my board certified physician of 35 years, who continues to treat me to this day. Because CFS is primarily an inflammatory illness, I researched anti-inflammatory supplements and chose Holy Basil, because it has a long Ayurvedic history and has no drug interactions or side effects. In less than 60 days my chronic pain and other complaints lessened, and both my doctor and my husband agree that my condition has significantly improved. This is a quality herbal product, and I recommend speaking to your doctor about trying it for any inflammatory condition.
Recommended Use: As an herbal dietary supplement, take 1 Vcap 1-2 times daily, preferably with meals.
