What is St. John's Wort?

St. John's wort is a leafy herb that grows in open areas throughout the world's temperate regions. It has been used as an herbal supplement since ancient Greece [1].

St. John's Wort Benefits

St. John's wort protects and creates neurotransmitters including: acetlycholine, norepinephrine, dopamine and seratonin [1]. These neurotransmitters are responsible for mood regulation, energy and concentration.

Hypericum has been shown to relieve the physical and behavioral symptoms of Premenstrual Syndrome(PMS) [2].

St. John's wort also has antibacterial properties and may help fight inflammation [3].

St. John's Wort Side Effects

Some users have reported side effects including: anxiety, headache, muscle cramps, sweating, and dry mouth.

Be sure to check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any medication as St. John's wort has negative side effects when used with certain medications.

Due to St. John's wort increasing neurotransmitters, we recommend tapering off when discontinuing supplementation.

St. John's Wort Dosage

Individuals can take two rounded 0.15cc scoops(300mg) up to three times daily.

Synonyms: Hypericum Perforatum, Hypericum, Klamathweed Saint John's Wort
