Description

St Johns Wort is an effective natural aid to manage depression.

St Johns Wort is indicated for the treatment and management of feelings of low mood or despondency.

Investigation continues to determine how St John s Wort works physiologically, and several mechanisms of action have been proposed. Although no single constituent of the plant can be considered to be responsible for the therapeutic action of the herb, hypericin (an oil-soluble anthraquinone glycoside) is considered to be an integral part of its action.

Blackmores St John's Wort is useful in relieving prolonged:
low mood or despondency.
feeling of sadness and/or tearfulness .
loss of interest or pleasure in daily activities.
physical and emotional agitation or slowness.
irritability and fatigue.
