St. John's wort is an aromatic perennial herb that produces star-shaped golden yellow flower with five petals that secrete a red liquid when pinched. Originally, St. John's wort was native to Europe only, but now it can be found growing almost everywhere in the world.
This plant has been used for over 2,000 years. Ancient Greeks believed that its odor repelled evil spirits. Early Christians named the plant in honor of St. John the Baptist because they believed it released its blood-red oil on the 29th of August, the day the saint was beheaded.
Clinical trials support the assertion that St. John's wort is effective in maintaining normal sleep patterns and a healthy nervous system. It is also useful in the release of stress and frustration and in the re-balancing of moods. The efficacy of St. John's wort may be attributed to its effect on the immune system in addition, to the effect of its active compounds.
