Features and benefits

  • Relieves sadness and despondency
  • Relieves irritability and agitation

 

How it works

St. John's wort appears to impact a number of neurotransmitters that have an effect on mood and emotions.

 

St. John's wort has been standardised to contain the active constituent hypericin. Research suggests that hypericin has a tonic and tranquillising action. St. John's wort may increase the levels of certain nerve transmitters, such as serotonin and noradrenaline which help to maintain normal mood and keep emotions stable.
