Holy indeed!My family recently went through a shocking, stressful event. Half of us took this holy basil capsules twice a day, and the others declined. Those of us who took it were able to come down from the high tension and be able to sleep after a few days. My other family members who refused to take it are still suffering from signs of stress (migraine, backache, stomach ache, insomnia). I highly recommend holy basil for stress, both chronic and accurate.
I was advised to take holy basil for stress periods and lack of sleep, so I chose Gaia because I love them, clean and this gel form seems to work for all their products ( I use Gaia Rodiola, vitex, turmeric supreme - all good, maybe a bit expensive, but good). Also I love the glass jar and the capsules are easy to take. I definitely recommend if Gaia is in your price range.
Gaia Herbs Holy Basil Leaf vegan liquid phyto-caps are a dietary supplement that contains extracts from the holy basil plant, known for its potential to help manage stress and anxiety, but also for its adaptogen properties. In my case, I take it in conjunction with Rhodiola Rosea for synergistic benefits. It is very concentrated and has a very good price/quality ratio.
i would say the first 2 weeks worked best for me to lower cortisol before bed cause i couldnt sleep, i took 1 pill/day before sleeping, seems to work better if you take it with dinner cause it's most likely fat soluble. however after 3 to 4 weeks it stopped working. so it helped me sleep for the first 2 weeks, but then the effects stopped. I do know that you need to cycle adaptogens, but this lost its effect way sooner then it should, so i will take a break for a month, then start again.
