What is St John's Wort?

Our Vegetable encapsulated St. John’s Wort (Hypericum) is standardized to contain 0.3% hypericins.
St. John’s Wort is one of the best selling herbs today.  Used medicinally in ancient times as a  “protector from evil spirits” and topically for healing wounds.  An aromatic yellow herb found in Europe and the USA, it is normally in abundance on June 24, the celebrated birthday of Saint John the Baptist.  Thus the name was in honor of Saint John.
Saint johns wort is used in Europe by practitioners to treat mild to moderate depression, and as a nerve tonic for anxiety.  20 randomized trials on patients that suffer from mild to moderate depression, concluded that St. John’s Wort worked better than placebo and was as effective or better than some drug based antidepressants.
Scientists believe its mood enhancing effects to be due to two compounds, hypericin and hyperforin, which may inhibit the breakdown of several neurotransmitters, including serotonin, which is partly responsible for controlling moods and emotions.
