Product Info

St. John’s Wort helps promote healthy mood and relieve sleep disturbances associated with mood imbalances.

Ingredients

Ingredients (per capsule):
St. John’s Wort Extract 7:1 (Hypericum perforatum L.)…..450 mg
(aerial parts, flower) (standardized to 0.3% hypericin)
(equivalent to 3150 mg of dried herb)
(tested to contain approx. 3% hyperforin* in fresh extract)

Non-medicinal Ingredients:
Microcrystalline cellulose, L-leucine, pullulan/hypromellose (capsule)

*What is Hyperforin?
Hyperforin is believed to be the primary active constituent responsible for the antidepressant and anxiolytic properties of the extracts of St. John’s wort (SJW). It acts as a reuptake inhibitor of monoamines, including serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, and of GABA and glutamate. It is also believed that hyperforin may be actually responsible for inducing the P450 liver enzymes, which may increase the metabolism of other drugs in the body.

However, hyperforin is a very unstable compound and is degraded by light and oxygen exposure very quickly; therefore, hyperforin is often not standardized because the storage time will change its content. SJW is mostly standardized in hypericin because it is much more stable.

Suggested Use

Adults – Take 1 capsule 2 times a day or as directed by a health care practitioner. Use for a minimum of 1 week to see beneficial effects. Consult a health care practitioner for use beyond 18 weeks.
Caution:

Consult a health care practitioner in cases of sleep disturbances; if taking conventional medication, such as contraceptives, HIV-1 protease inhibitors, non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors, immunosuppressants, anticoagulant, digoxin, theophylline, serotonergic antidepressants, migraine therapies, SSRIs and/or anti-epilepsy drugs; or if symptoms persist.
