Source Naturals Holy Basil Extract 450 mg 120 Capsules

Holy basil (known as tulsi in Ayurveda) is one of the primary botanicals used in India for reducing the negative effects of stress by lowering cortisol production in the adrenals. In vitro research shows the ursolic acid in Source Naturals Holy Basil Extract inhibits COX-2, an inflammatory enzyme. As a powerful adaptogen, Source Naturals Holy Basil Extract helps maintain normal blood sugar levels when used as part of your diet, as well as promote focused clarity.

Source Naturals Holy Basil Extract Stress, Blood Sugar and Nervous System Protection
For over five millennia, Tulsi (holy basil) has been used to improve digestion and restore imbalances of the body and mind. Now research has documented that HOLY BASIL may do this by decreasing levels of cor tisol, a hormone produced and secreted by the adrenal glands. Nicknamed the “stress hormone,” cortisol production increases in response to chronic stress. Cor tisol triggers the body to make glucose from amino acids, which causes blood sugar to rise. Through normalizing cortisol levels in times of stress, holy basil may prevent not only the mood changes associated with stress, but also prevent the increases in blood sugar that researchers say can contribute to numerous health imbalances affecting more than half of all Americans. HOLY BASIL has also been found to normalize neurotransmitter levels in the brain.

Researchers found in animal studies that HOLY BASIL counteracted stress-induced changes in neurotransmitters and enzymes. Stress leads to a positive increase in brain serotonin levels, increases in dopamine levels and increases in SDH (succinate dehydrogenase) levels, while holy basil may help people maintain normal levels of these brain chemicals in times of stress. Another study found that animals that received the extract showed significant normalization of epinephrine, norepinephrine, serotonin, MAO, and SDH. Epinephrine and norepinephrine are used in coping with stress. The researchers suggest that when dopamine levels rise, these two neurotransmitters may be replenished since dopamine is a precursor for their synthesis. This may be the mechanism by which holy basil assists with stress adaptation.


Choose Source Naturals Holy Blasil For Natural Stress Reduction
Skyrocketing stress is one of our nation’s most per vasive public health problems.

Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula™, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple™, Mega-Kid Multiple™, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.

Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas™ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.

I no longer recommend this product (see my original 5-star review above on 10-24-13). Since I wrote my first review raving about this product, Source Naturals changed it and it is now ineffective. When I received my 2nd bottle I noticed that the supplement did not seem as effective for me anymore and wondered if perhaps my body was just adapting to it. Then I noticed that the label on the new bottle had been changed significantly and that it no longer stated: "yielding 9mg ursolic acid". I called Source Naturals to ask about this and they said that their supplier could no longer guarantee the ursolic acid content as they were getting their holy basil from a different source now. I don't know what they are putting in the capsules now, but it does not seem to be holy basil, it doesn't even smell the same. I am going to look for a new brand of holy basil that guarantees 2% ursolic acid. I still wholeheartedly endorse holy basil, just not this brand.

This product is amazing for calming me down when I am anxious or worried. Two of these capsules with a glass of water bring a calmness upon me within ten or so minutes. All natural, no side effects, for 15 years!
