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.

I find this product to work very well for me. This seems to provide a good level of active ingredients and off all the brands I've just this is my preferred. Highly recommended.

This product is high in hyperforin, the active ingredient. It is gentle and effective in dealing with anxiety and low mood. I do take more than the recommended dose, but am feeling no ill-effects. I don't know what I would do without it.

Highly recommend this - it stabilizes my mood and balances the highs and lows. I suffered a severe back injury and was diagnosed with a chronic pain condition. What is truly amazing is that although I'm under a huge amount of stress at work (which usually makes my pain severe), when I'm taking this my back is ok and I don't get the chronic pain. I'm also finding I'm sleeping better. It's great stuff.
