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 John's Wort Side Effects
Cant say Ive noticed a difference.
Sadly I was hoping all the positive reviews would mean I would get to write one too, but I have to say, I have taken one tablet a day religiously since they arrived and have noticed no difference. I think I might try to increase the dose to two a day and see if that provides any difference. They say it takes a good three weeks for changes to start be apparent, but its been longer than that, so I should really have noticed the difference by now if one tablet a day was going to effective.
This product has been a life saver for me, brilliant without the side effects of the drugs I've been taking that the doctor prescribed.
A permanent item in my cabinet
Tried other brands of SJW, but this works much better, more effective on me than the other.
Suffered from depression in the past, no longer on antidepressants, but there are periods in life when it gets overwhelming, with stress and anxiety and this really really helps keeping things in healthy perspective without going down that dark tunnel of full blown depression.
Not suggesting that this can replace antidepressants by any means, just sharing that this have helped me with making sure that my depression doesn't creep back.
