St John's Wort Info
St Johns wort (Hypericum perforatum) is a medicinal herb well known for its nervine tonic and antidepressant properties. The meaning of the Greek word hypericum is ‘greatest health’. Its reputation goes back to the time of Dioscorides and Hippocrates, who used St John’s wort to "combat the demons of melancholy". Modern research supports this reputation, with many trials showing it to be as effective as prescription anti-depressants but with fewer adverse side effects.
St John's Wort Benefits
St John’s wort is a proven safe treatment for depression and tonic for the nervous system, and a specific for nerve pain. It is also useful for promoting feelings of wellbeing and calm, alleviating anxiety and stress, and aiding disturbed sleep patterns.
St Johns wort is antiseptic, antiviral and antibacterial, and used traditionally to treat a broad range of infections including sore throats, chronic coughs, sinus infections, malaria and tuberculosis. It may benefit uterine cramping, PMS, peptic ulcers and gastrointestinal problems.
St John's wort may also be helpful in managing the symptoms of psoriasis, Parkinson's disease and chronic fatigue syndrome.
St John’s wort’s specific affinity for injuries to the nerves makes it a safe and effective treatment for painful deep wounds, burns and sunburn. Applied topically for bruises, herpes sores, varicose veins, haemorrhoids, sciatica, nerve pain, arthritis and rheumatism, St John’s wort may help alleviate symptoms and speed up healing.
St John's Wort Side Effects
Wonderful product to help with stress, irritability and mood. Also helps with sleep. Only side effect I have had is photosensitivity and an increase in pigmentation, but apart from that fully recommend and an excellent price.
No other brand can compete !
I have tried ALL of the other possibly more well-known (and much more expensive !) brands of St. John's Wort available today and for me only THIS product, with its unique formula and dosage of ingredients (including magnesium, known for its mood-elevating properties) is actually REALLY effective in combating stress, anxiety and depression. And note, as suggested by my naturopath, if you take it together with a "one-a-day" vitamin B complex tablet then its effectiveness may even more greatly enhanced ! I have been taking this combo for a couple of months now after falling into a fairly severe depression and now that I have regained my joie de vivre, I will never stop taking it...!
Used for Depression and Anxiety
This would only suit some users. I found the high strength St John's Wort too much. This is much better to mix with SaMe 200mg to keep me on the straight and narrow moodwise!
