Hypericum 0.3% 300mg (90 Capsules)
For Mood Enhancement, Naturally
Hypericum, commonly known as St John's wort, has been studied by a Cochrane meta-analysis of 29 randomized, double-blind studies of almost 5,500 adults with clinical depression. In addition, the study reveals that reviews published between 1995 and 2000 found treatment with hypericum to be more effective than with a placebo and similarly effective as standard antidepressants in treating mild to moderate depression (Linde, Berner & Kriston, 1998).
This meta-analysis also found that subjects taking hypericum experienced fewer side effects than those on standard antidepressants. Those on hypericum were 76% less likely to drop out because of side effects compared to those on older antidepressants, and 47% less likely to drop out compared to those on SSRIs (Linde, Berner & Kriston, 1998).
Most patients in these trials had mild to moderate depression. The analysts noted, however, that evidence is still insufficient to draw conclusions about the efficacy of hypericum for treating severe depression.
There is a possible side effect of hypericum: photosensitization of the skin, which may affect people who work outdoors. Hypericum products available on the market vary a great deal. This product uses the 0.3% hypericin extract used in German studies that have shown the reported effects (Blumenthal, Goldberg & Brinckman, 2000).
