St. John's Wort is a natural effective alternative for depression to the addictive and handicapping chemical straight jackets.
It was in Germany that were carried out the first studies showing the effectiveness of St. John's Wort for improving mood. When women aged between 55 and 65 years received St. John's Wort extract as a unique therapy, the modification of the urinary metabolisms indicated an increased cerebral production of dopamine, a normal effect of anti-depressants. The subjective indicators of depression (anxiety, loss of interest, lethargy, anorexia, feeling of uselessness) were also significantly improved.
Other studies proved that St. John's Wort is more effective for depressive symptoms than certain common medication, such as amitriptyline and imipramine. In a recent multi-analysis published by the British Journal of Medicine (1996 : 313 : 253-8), 1.757 patients suffering from light or moderate depression were separated into 23 sub-groups. The results indicated that St. John's Wort extract was at least as effective, and perhaps more effective than conventional approaches. In 1994 the Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry and Neurology dedicated a whole issue to 17 studies documenting the value of St. John's Wort in cases of light or moderate depression. Conclusion of the Journal: St. John's Wort is a natural anti-depressant remarkably lacking in side effects.
