St. John's Wort Extract Caps 300 mg 60 Vegetarian caps by Life Extension
St. Johnís Wort (hypericin extract) is a weak inhibitor of monoamine oxidase (MAO), which may destroy dopamine in the brain and lead to low spirits. It has also been shown to inhibit re-uptake of several neurotransmitters, including serotonin, dopamine, noradrenaline, GABA, and L-glutamate in the brain, and to reduce expression of interleukin-6. Each of these actions can contribute to alleviating low mood status by slowing the recycling of neurotransmitters needed for maintaining emotional balance. Flavonoids, hypericin, and pseudo-hypericin are the constituents thought to be associated with the benefits of St. Johnís Wort. In particular, hypericin appears to be the active ingredient.
Suggested Use: Take one capsule once or twice daily on an empty stomach, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
