Description - Research and Analysis

Nature's Mood Lifter

In many nations, sales of St. John's Wort extract far outstrip sales of regular antidepressants, such that it has been dubbed "nature's Prozac." Some of the early uses of this herb as a balm relate to wound repairing.

Exactly how the name St. John's Wort came about may lie in the fact that the red oil which exudes from the buds and flowers is associated with the blood of St John the Baptist. Hippocrates, Dioscorides and Galen all make note of its wound-mending properties and its ability to help support nerve pains, such as sciatica.

Interest in St John's wort has risen recently since a number of medical trials have confirmed its ability to help improve states of mild to moderate depression.

Gives the Mind a Lift: In Germany sales of St. John's Wort outstrip sales of regular antidepressants, so much so that records show 66 million daily doses of St. John's Wort were prescribed in 1994. In over 26 clinical studies, all confirm the antidepressant effect. Nearly all of these studies have used a standardized extract (0.3 percent hypericin) at a dose of 300 mg taken three times a day.

Anti-bacterial activity Two of St. John's Wort's key compounds, hypericin and pseudohypericin, have attracted interest since they demonstrate powerful antiviral actions against viral infections and immunity deficiency.

Heals and Cleanses Wounds: Historical records support the findings that infected wounds improve when St. John's Wort oil is applied. Analysis of the oil has shown that compounds known as phloroglucinols are responsible for this antimicrobial action. The same oil, when added to a cream base, can help accelerate the rejuvenating process in cases of minor wounds.

How to Take St. John's Wort

In general, 15 to 20 drops of the traditional 65 percent liquid extracts can be taken 2 to 3 times a day. If, however you wish to take St. John's Wort for its antidepressant effect, the best preparation to use is a 200 - 300 mg dose standardized to contain 0.3 percent hypericin extract. It should be taken with food three times a day.

Ingredients

Standardized St. John's Wort Extract (Hypericum perforatum) - 250 mg

(guaranteeing - .3% Hypericin)
 

Cautions

May increase sun sensitivity, especially in fair skinned individuals. Seek professional medical advise prior to taking this product, if you are taking any of the following medications, MAO-inhibiting anti-depressants, anti-coagulants, oral contraceptives, anti-epilepsy drugs, antiretroviral drugs (protease inhibitors) or immunosupressants.

Toxicity

Acute toxicity is unlikely in the recommended dose, however a skin rash can occur on exposure to sunlight in some individuals.

Occasional stomach irritation has been reported when St. John's wort is taken on an empty stomach. When taken at the full dose, cheese, wine, beer, pickled herrings, yeast, and yeast extract should be avoided.

Drug-Herb Interactions

St. John's wort can interfere with the metabolism of some drugs. Research has shown that the active principles affect the liver and a special chemical pathway involved in drug detoxification. Some of the drugs affected by this include antihistamines, oral contraceptives, and anti-epileptics. People taking selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRI5) such as Prozac should avoid taking St. John's wort.
