 MRM's St John's Wort

Description

MRM's St. John's Wort features a maximum strength, standardized herbal extract of St. John's Wort. St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) has been used for centuries in Europe as a medicinal herb to treat various health problems. St. John's Wort is used today as an anti-depressant to improve mood and relieve anxiety and stress.

St. John's Wort contains medicinally active flavonoids, hypericin and hyperforin. Studies suggest that hypericin and hyperforin increase the release of the "feel good" neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. By making more of these neurotransmitters available to the brain, St. John's Wort helps improve mood and prevent feelings of depression, anxiety and stress.

Research suggests that St. John's Wort may be as effective as prescribed drugs such as tricyclic anti-depressants and SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). One study, published in the British Medical Journal, found that St. John's Wort was as effective as paroxetine (SSRIs) in treating depression. "In the treatment of moderate to severe major depression, hypericum extract WS 5570 is at least as effective as paroxetine and is better tolerated," the study authors conclude.


Pros

Containing 450 mg of St. John's Wort per capsule, MRM's formula provides an easy and convenient way to benefit from St. John's Wort. Standardized to contain 0.3% hypericins, MRM promises maximum potency.
