St. John’s Wort is a perennial herb with yellow flowers. It is native to Europe but has been introduced and cultivated in the U.S. as well. This plant was named after John the Baptist. The word wort is from the Old English for “root.” The most common use for this herb is for the nervous system. Touted as a natural antidepressant by some herbalists, St. John’s Wort works to maintain healthy emotional balance.
The reason this herb works so well for this purpose is because of a compound called hypericin. Hypericin encourages a positive mood and healthy mental attitude. Nature’s Sunshine products combine this herb with passion flower, which is another plant that helps support the nervous system. Together St. Johns Wort and passion flower work together to encourage good mental health. Natures Sunshine St. John’s Wort capsules contain 300 mg of St. John’s Wort which has been standardized to include 0.3 percent hypericin.
