December 09, 2012Reviewer: Elizabeth in Minnesota* I began using Now brand Holy Basil in September 2012, as an attempt to improve Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, from which I have suffered for 22 years. My illness was originally diagnosed by my board certified physician of 35 years, who continues to treat me to this day. Because CFS is primarily an inflammatory illness, I researched anti-inflammatory supplements and chose Holy Basil, because it has a long Ayurvedic history and has no drug interactions or side effects. In less than 60 days my chronic pain and other complaints lessened, and both my doctor and my husband agree that my condition has significantly improved. This is a quality herbal product, and I recommend speaking to your doctor about trying it for any inflammatory condition.
