CHRISTOPHERS - St. Johns Wort Extract - 2 fl. oz. (59 ml)

Product Description
St. John's Wort Herb Extract is based on an herb, which has been used for centuries in folk medicine. Known for its antidepressant and anxiolytic properties, the extract has been widely used for depressive states, psycho-vegetative disorders, neurotic reactions, anxiety, fear, and menopause. Topically, the extract may be applied for stomatitis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, and pharyngitis.

Properties / Mechanism of Action
Dr. Christopher s St. John s Wort Herb Extract is known to have antidepressant, anxiolytic, and sedative effects. It has a beneficial effect on the functional state of the central and autonomic nervous system. The formula helps to eliminate anxiety and stress as well as improves mood in depressive conditions.

The main active substance of St. John s Wort is hypericin, which is an antidepressant and anxiolytic. It is assumed that the mechanism of action of hypericin is similar to the mechanism of action of antidepressant-class non-selective MAO inhibitors, which can inhibit the activity of monoamine oxidase type A. However, recent studies have shown that hypericin may have the activity against the serotonin system (serotonin reuptake inhibition), and has a tropism to GABA and benzodiazepine receptors. In addition, St. John s Wort Herb is rich in flavonoids and helps to bind benzodiazepine receptors as well as exert a sedative effect on the nervous system.

The intake of Dr. Christopher s St. John s Wort Herb Extract helps to improve mood, increase physical and mental performance, and normalize sleep. The extract is effective both in terms of anxiety and depression for patients with mild depression.

St. John s Wort herb has a positive effect on somatization, a psychological distress manifested in bodily symptoms and disorders. The most rapid effect was observed in patients whose clinical picture was dominated by an alarming component or an autonomic dysfunction occurred as a somatic equivalent of anxiety.

In patients with a predominance of depressive symptoms and sleep disorders the effect usually comes after a few weeks of the treatment.

St. John's Wort Extract is usually well tolerated.
In the topical application, the extract has astringent, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptic action.
