St. John's Wort from Solaray

Use as a Mild Anti-Depressant

St. John's Wort from Solaray. Best known for use as a mild anti-depressant, St. John's Wort is also being studied for its possible affects on other mood disorders such as anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder. St. John's Wort herbal supplements are among the leading medicines used in Germany to relieve the symptoms of mild to moderate depression. People taking St. John's Wort show an improvement in mood and ability to carry out their daily lives. Symptoms including sadness, hopelessness, worthlessness, exhaustion, and poor sleep also may decrease with the usage of St. John's Wort. Used topically, it may have antiviral and antibacterial effects.

The major active ingredients in St. John's Wort include hypericin and other dianthrones, flavonoids, xanthones, and hyperforin. For many years researchers believed the anti-depressant properties of St. John's Wort were a result of its hypericin contnet and the inhibition of the enzyme monoamine oxidase, however, more recent research suggests that its antidepressant actions may be a result of other active constituents, such as hyperforin, and flavonoids. Clinical studies suggest that St. John's Wort extracts may exert their anti-depressant actions by inhibiting the re-uptake of the neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine. This action may be due to hyperforin. St. John's Wort's may work as an anti-depressant, by making more of hyperforin (a neurotransmitter) available to the brain.
