Sangster’s St. John’s Wort 300mg
For years this tiny yellow wildflower, named in honour of its harvest on Saint John’s Day, has been used by herbalists. It’s most well known benefit is to help fight mild to moderate depression although claims have been made that it can help with obsessive-compulsive disorder, migraines and some symptoms of menopause.
How it Works:
St. John’s Wort contains the chemicals hypericin, hyperforin and pseudohypericin, all of which help to suppress depressive activity in the brain. They do so by delaying or decreasing the re-absorption of the neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin by the nerves. This helps to increase serotonin levels in the brain which can relieve symptoms of depression in the same manner as SSRI antidepressants.
