St. John’s Wort is widely regarded for its mood supporting benefits. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated the effects of St. John’s Wort on mental and emotional functioning. The main active ingredient in St. John’s Wort is hypericin. Studies show hypericin helps support normal, healthy levels of serotonin in the brain. This herb has been widely used throughout the world due to its efficacy, safety, and lack of side effects. Siberian Eleutherococcus is an effective adaptogen, which has been shown to support healthy stress response and a natural “boost” in energy levels. Ginkgo biloba has been the subject of several scientific studies. Most of these studies demonstrate the ability of ginkgo biloba to support healthy circulation to, and energy production by, brain cells.† The increased circulation to the brain helps nourish the brain with oxygen and essential nutrients, all required for normal, healthy brain function.†

- Twenty out of twenty-three clinical studies (including 2,745 patients) on European standardized St. John’s Wort demonstrated positive results for depression. Five of these studies were randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled (totaling 626 patients), and showed significant benefits without significant side effects.†
