    It is my son taking it, on a tip, I got him some for his Tourette's Syndrome. He's 32 yrs. He is on a few regular drugs including some Ativan and Prozac and keppra, but this has really helped him to relax and has even stopped some of his motor and vocal tics.

Holy Basil is the first herb I have come across that helps reduce the sensation of tightness or heaviness in the chest caused by asthma, without the stimulant effect typical of asthma medications (Holy Basil works similarly to Mucinex.)

    I bought the Tulsi Sweet rose tea to help me relax at night before bed but it had the opposite effect of keeping me up all night. So now I drink it during the day to give me energy. I have felt warm after drinking it others mention in their reviews. I will continue to drink it to see if it helps with anxiety and mood, but not at night.

    Works for me,easy drinking the tea,satisfactory. felt groggy awhile but I feel it overall helps to substitute coffee and relieve anxieties while boosting my moods and altogether eliminating bloating this is drinking a cup or two at night and the next morning I'm sure the overall energizing effect will follow this new groggy feeling as i with draw from coffee.

I am a long time intractable pain person. I was measuring my belly and after months of 50 inches I found 49. I didn't lose weight, where did it go. Then then last month I weighed and lost 9#s.
