Interesting Composition - Phyto-Caps
Verified Purchase
Rewarded Review

I take Holy Basil for anxiety and adrenal support. So far, my subjective experience is that it seems to help. This brand, in particular, uses their own patented technology for extraction. They claim that this technology is superior to veggie and soft capsules with regards to rapid absorption. It's not the only manufacturer using Phyto-Caps. However, this brand lists lecithin, glycerin and oil. These are three different extraction bases and methods respectively. They also list CO2 extraction, possibly the raw product that they use, but not the only one. I suspect that they mix different extraction bases with the ultrasonic method because all bases could be used this way. Possibly, they also integrate heat into the process, similar to how liposomes are produced with the lecithin base only. With herbs, it can be crucial to use different solvents because not every ingredient binds with the same. The smell of the capsules is telling, they have a strong herbal flavor.

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.

Gaia's Holy Basil has been my go-to for many years. The brand's quality is unmatched, and their liquid phytocaps deliver the herb in a very effective dose and method (it just feels like the body needs to do a lot less work to absorb the beneficial components and put them to work than with other brands). This is the only brand of Holy Basil I will ever use. This herb has helped me so much! And the price here is the best I've seen.

Great adaptogen to relax my stressed system. I take this along with Seriphos and Magnesium before bed and I sleep so well. I honestly don't want to be without this or I won't relax enough to fall asleep. I try to order ahead so I never run out. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

I like taking this when I feel poorly. Sometimes it makes me tired, other times it gives me energy. So I just take it in the morning and it usually will help with aches/pains and sometimes depression. However, it is incredibly important to eat a FULL meal with this because it brings your blood sugar down. So be careful.

I bought it for my mom and she use it to comfort her belly from gas. It's really a good addition to her life system without the bad effects of chemical medicines. I would be very grateful if you click useful.

One of the highest quality ingredient Holy Basil products on the market. I don't understand the need to waste the additional cardboard packaging that has the same information on the product label. Discontinue the redundant packaging and increase your profits, while reducing wasteful packaging and natural resources!

Gaia's quality can't be beat, but this particular supplement just wasn't for me. When Seriphos was out of stock I added this to my regimen hoping another adaptogen would help bridge the gap, so to speak. Sadly it didn't seem to help me, instead affecting my cycle for the worse. Seems like I'm an outlier though, and if you want the benefits of a high quality herb you can't beat Gaia.
