A daily intake of St. John's wort herb, standardized to 2.7 mg of hypericin, may support a positive outlook and mood.

St. John's Wort is far from new - it has an impressive history of use in traditional cultures. But its use in supporting a positive mental outlook is gaining newfound acceptance. And today, science has given us the tools to offer a St. John's Wort product that is standardized to contain an optimal amount of its key constituent, hypericin.

St. John's Wort - A Popular Choice
The use of St. John's Wort, or Hypericum perforatum, has become especially widespread in Germany, where consumers have turned to this exceptional botanical in large numbers. In 1994 alone, almost 66 million daily doses of standardized St. John's Wort extract (hypericum) were dispensed in Germany. Among the reported benefits of St. John's Wort are moodbrightening, relaxation, alertness, and a sense of overall well-being. In addition to support for the nervous system, St. John's Wort is believed to support the body's natural defenses.

The Beneficial Constituents of St. John's Wort

The specific beneficial constituents of the St. John's Wort plant are believed to be the naphthodianthrones, especially hypericin and pseudohypericin, and a wide variety of flavonoids.

Source Naturals St. John's Wort is standardized to consistently yield 0.3% hypericin. Two tablets, the suggested usage, contain 900 mg of St. John's Wort extract, yielding 2.7 mg hypericin. This is the optimal amount found in most studies to support a positive outlook and overall sense of well-being. For best results, St. John's Wort should be taken for at least 4-6 weeks.

Traditional Uses of St. John's Wort
St. John's Wort, a stalky perennial with golden yellow flowers, is native to Europe but now found throughout NorthAmerica. Its petals are peppered with translucent black dots, which will turn your fingers red if you rub them; it is this red pigment that is believed to contain most of the beneficial constituents. St. John's Wort is named for its deep red pigment, which was believed to represent the blood of John the Baptist.

St. John's Wort, or Hypericum perforatum, has been valued by diverse cultures as far back as the Middle Ages for its ability to support a positive outlook and a sense of well-being. Now modern consumers are experiencing the same benefits from this renowned herb.
