While the benefits of St. John’s wort have been cited by herbalists for hundreds of years, recent peer reviewed research has validated the beneficial effects of standardized extract 0.3 percent hypericin) of St. John’s wort.
St. John’s wort supplies an array of active compounds other than hypericin, including phloroglucinol derivatives, xanthones, flavonoids and essential oil.
St. John’s wort works mainly in the brain to boost the level of the neurotransmitter serotonin. Much of the research on St. John’s wort has been done in Germany where it outsells Prozac as an antidepressant. Studies have shown that St. John’s wort can raise serotonin levels when the amino acid tryptophan somehow does not.
St. John’s wort can also be taken with 5-hydroxy-tryptophan which is another form of tryptophan to gently raise serotonin levels.
