I saw Deepak Chopra on Dr. Oz and he recommended Holy Basil to lift your spirits and help with stress. I tend to be very stressed all the time and this leads to periods of high anxiety. Plus, for the past year I have been feeling unmotivated and just depressed. I've tried antidepressants which do help but they always make me gain weight or cause other side effects. Even though no herbal remedy has every helped me I thought what the heck I would try this. By day two, forgetting completely that I had even taken two capsules in the a.m., I started feeling excited about life and started thinking about starting a business again. I even made homemade guacamole for dinner- I have a culinary degree and love to cook but for months I have had no interest in cooking. I thought why am I suddenly in such a good mood? Why am I planning for the future and interested in hobbies again? And then I remembered the holy basil! Coincidence? I really don't think so! I can say it definitely is not a placebo effect because I completely forgot I took it and only realized I was suddenly in much better spirits. In any case, I will continue taking it!!!!

Over the summer, I began having a string of panic/anxiety attacks after almost fainting in July in the humid, non-ventilated subway tunnel while waiting for the train to arrive. I had a back brace on that I had accidentally tightened too strongly, and I also had not eaten or drank anything for several hours. Next thing you know, I was about to pass out & was overcome with this overwhelming sense of fear and panic that I had never experienced before. I ended up in the ER that day, & the doctor's found I was dehydrated. That in combination with cutting off my air supply with the back brace had onset a series of anxiety attacks in the months to come. I am certain the anxiety did not pop up out of nowhere. I had been under an overwhelming amount of stress for over a year as a result of family issues and a very busy life schedule and trying to balance everything & remain the overachiever that I tend to be.

After that day, I began having these rushes of the same feelings of not being able to breathe, dizziness, claustrophobia, numb or tingling hands and feet, tightness or a clenching feeling in my chest, and many other symptoms daily, sometimes several times a day, for about a month before figuring out I was having anxiety attacks. Having a daily commute that includes road tunnels & subway tunnels did nothing to help matters. It took several doctor's visits and another trip to the ER for a doctor to determine what was happening to me. Of course, the suggested cure was to talk to a psychiatrist and get some meds prescribed.

Preferring to go the holistic route, I did my own research. From speaking with friends, and even my bosses (I was missing a great deal of work) and co-workers, I learned that high anxiety is, unfortunately, commonly experienced by many!

I am in the midst of studying for some licensing exams and with it comes some stress and anxiety. I find pretty debilitating and wanted to take some supplements to support me during this time.

I was muscle tested (kinesiology) on Holy Basil and it came out strong.

I was advised to put the capsule in my mouth and bite it. Swallow the oil and allow the effects to wash over me. It's almost instantaneous. I feel calm, relaxed, and mellow. I don't feel sleepy or disoriented, just more balanced. It's a very gentle feeling, which lasts the whole day.

If I were to compare it to anything else, I would say its sort of like GABA. However, GABA is much stronger in its effects for me. Almost like a stoned/drunk feeling I would say. Holy Basil is not like this at all.

I find one cap/day is just enough.

I highly recommend breaking the oil in your mouth. It tastes like cloves-eucalyptus: bitter and pungent. I found when I took in the capsule form, the effects weren't as good as breaking it in my mouth.

This stuff rocks! It 100% works! When I first took it, I was monitoring "what it would do to me." For me, it takes about 45min to an hour before it kicks in and...it just makes me feel good. Noticebly and physically good. Dare I say slightly high (not in the drug sense)....just really good, positive and focused. It helps me work...and it especially helps because I do a lot of large-scale public speaking. I also noticed that when I combined a dose of Holy Basil and Zyflamend Whole Body--many issues with my knees and back seem to disappear. After deeper review of Holy Basil (also known as Tulsi)--I found out that this has much more benefits than I thought. It promotes circulation in the body (big one right there) and is an epic contender for improving heart function and repairing heart damage. Its an anti-inflammatory without the side effects. Check this out from WebMD:

"Holy basil is used for the common cold, influenza ("the flu"), H1N1 (swine) flu, diabetes, asthma, bronchitis, earache, headache, stomach upset, heart disease, fever, viral hepatitis, malaria, stress, and tuberculosis. It is also used for mercury poisoning, to promote longevity, as a mosquito repellent, and to counteract snake and scorpion bites.

Holy basil is applied to the skin for ringworm.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Chemicals in holy basil are thought to decrease pain and swelling (inflammation). Other chemicals might lower blood sugar in people with diabetes.

There is interest in using holy basil seed oil for cancer. Beginning research suggests that the oil can slow progression and improve survival rate in animals with certain types of cancer. Researchers think this benefit may be explained by the oil’s ability to act as an antioxidant.
