St. John’s Wort is a shrubby plant with clusters of yellow flowers. Traditionally, St. John’s Wort was used to treat infectious diseases such as colds, syphilis and tuberculosis. Today, it is regarded as an effective anti-depressant, specifically indicated in the treatment of anxiety, depression, insomnia and restlessness.
Relieves the Symptoms of Depression
St John’s Wort has been shown to reduce symptoms of mild to moderate depression and other mood problems including anxiety, apathy and feelings of worthlessness. Ideally, the brain operates with a healthy balance of chemical messengers such as serotonin and norepinephrine. An insufficiency or lack of balance of these chemicals can result in depression.
In the body, St. John’s Wort works by increasing the levels of norepinephrine and serotonin. New research suggests that St John’s Wort extracts exert their antidepressant actions by inhibiting the reuptake of the neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. St John’s Wort makes more of these neurotransmitters available to the brain.
The active ingredient in St John’s Wort, hypericin, also appears to interfere with the activity of a chemical in the body known as monoamine oxidase (MAO). This makes it an MAO inhibitor, which is an important class of antidepressant drugs.
In many clinical studies, St John’s Wort was shown to be an effective treatment for people suffering from mild to moderate depression. Their symptoms such as tiredness and fatigue were also relieved.
