I take this in the morning and feel that I have more energy and a better mood.
Better than nothing

I'm trying to avoid taking prescription anti-depressants because of the side effects and the fact that it is very difficult to get off them. I tried 3 tablets a day. I read somewhere that you can take them all at once so I take them before bedtime. If I take them during the day I would get stomach upset and it would smell horrible. Before I started taking them my constant thought was that I wanted to die. I guess that put me in a higher depression category than most. The first couple weeks of taking them I felt good. Really good. Probably placebo effect. After that not too good. I bumped the number taken per day to 4. Again I felt good for a couple weeks. Even though I don't feel "normal" as in happy to be alive, I don't have a constant desire to die. I would say they work moderately well. I have been taking them for 5 or 6 months now. By the way, I also read somewhere that 5 pills a day is the max.

I was on paxil for a year durring my divorce and was able to go off of that and begin taking St. John's Wort instead. It's just enough to keep me on an even keel. And yes, I consulted my doctor first.
St. John's Wort

This brand seems to work as good as the more expensive ones for depression.
Quality product, can't beat the price.

Similar to that used in European studies--300 mg standardized actives, made from aerial parts. Seems to work as well as any of the other brands. Large size is convenient, and the price is right. I'd buy again.
St Johns Wort -Now Foods

I have tried various brands of St John's Wort over the years and they vary very much in efficacy. This particular one by Now Foods is of excellent quality and works well. I have had Chronic Fatigue for some years and St John's Wort has alway been most helpful in alleviating some of the 'brain' problems that that illnes gives.

Really good product! One of the most effective and natural anti depresive products i used. I also take 5htp and c-1000, this is a combination that works for me in winter times!
A must have!

I have taken st john's wort in a different brand for a while now. It is a "must have" in my vitamin line up. Now Foods brand is high quality and concentrated. Capsules are easy to swallow. I will most definitely order again!

was depressed on and off since i was about 20. just put up with it for years, was never interested in expensive anti depressants with lots of horrible sounding side effects. knew about SJW and decided to give it a go. changed my life completely, my default negative thought process has been transformed into positivity. everything is better on this. no side effects really, i put on a bit of weight, but all antidepressants do this, and i've read it isn't the chemicals that do this, but a psychological thing, your appetite is just returning to what it should be. if you doubt the power of SJW, read up on it, plenty of scientific studies that have it as effective as many brand name anti depressants.

this product works very well for me. i live in denmark and the winters are very long, but this year I have been taking two caps of this product every night together with GABA and I must say that I haven´t felt down at all. It really has worked for me. It does not remove my anxiety (which I suffer from mildly) but it is very good for the mood.
