> I've tried Picamilon, and it does seem to have a mild relaxing effect -- nothing dramatic, but worth a try. I posted a link for a source in the U.S. here a while back, but was told this was inappropriate (I'm not sure why, since it seems to be easily available and I can't find any evidence that it's controlled; Dr. Bob seemed unclear on its status so was being cautious). Just do a search and you'll quickly find it.

It's definitely not controlled (it's abundant in tea), and a recent report even suggests that it boosts the immune system, although that seems fairly preliminary.

Viridis -
out of curiousity, what was the condition you were using Picamilon to treat? ALso, how long did you try it for, and at what dosage? THanks!
