The use of St. John’s wort, one of the most commonly used herbal products in the United States, goes back to ancient Roman and Greek times. Its original use included acting as a healing agent for wounds and burns. The active chemical in St. John’s wort is hypericin, which possesses antiviral properties. Commonly used for its calming effect, St. John’s wort reportedly helps to ease tension and anxiety and may promote mental well-being and a peaceful mood.
Produced by a European phytopharmaceutical company, our standardized St. John’s Wort Extract is manufactured under strict European quality-control standards without the use of harsh chemicals. Like all European herbal extracts, the extraction of our St. John’s Wort Extract is regulated to the same high standards as over-the-counter drugs. It is meticulously extracted to provide a standardized level of 0.3 percent naturally occurring hypericin.
Our standardized St. John’s Wort Extract contains a full spectrum of components as they occur naturally in St. John’s wort. Because St. John’s wort interacts with a wide variety of medications, it is important to consult a health care provider who is knowledgeable about herbal medicines if you are using St. John’s wort with prescription medications.
Also known as Siberian ginseng, Siberian Eleutherococcus supplements are made from the dried root of Eleutherococcus senticosus, a plant indigenous to China, Japan, Korea, and Siberia. Although it is a distant relative and chemically different from American and Korean ginseng, it appears to have some similar effects.
Eleutherococcus is relatively new in Western natural medicine but has been used in China and Russia for centuries. Eleutherococcus is known as an adaptogen, which means it helps restore the body’s natural balance. It is particularly useful during times of stress and helps the body resist the effects of tension and stress.
Siberian ginseng contains active ingredients called eleutherosides (similar to ginsenosides in Korean and American ginseng), which are believed to stimulate the immune system and improve stamina.
