A sane alternative to anti-depressants
Posted by Reviewer2421501 on Oct 01, 2007
Like millions of people diagnosed with clinical depression, I have spent decades taking psychiatric prescription medications. While these medications initially proved very effective in treating my disorder, over time they became ineffective in treating my depression and began to produce crippling, negative side-effects. As I weaned myself off of the prescription anti-depressants, I sought an herbal alternative to help me deal with life-stress. My personal experiences with St John's Wort have been remarkable. Within days of starting this therapy, I began to feel better than I have in months! I don't expect everyone to enjoy the same dramatic benefits, but I stronglhy encourage all depression sufferes to try this age-old remedy. Don't be surprised if your psychaitrist advises against this therapy. Psychiatrists often eschew natural treatments in favor of prescriptions. Don't let this deter you. Youn owe it to yourself to feel the sense of well-being that St John's Wort cna provide. I will update this review as I continue to use the product.

I got this to help my son deal with his ADHD. I have been very pleased with the results in a short amount of time. He says he feels a sense of calm come over him when he takes them, and he sure shows it! Chalk it up for another herbal remedy!!!!

I have trouble falling and staying asleep because of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. In both of these conditions, serotonin is in short supply, a vital brain chemical that is required for sleep. St Johns Wort (SJW) is a natural "selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor" (SSRI) which means that it slows down the recycling of serotonin and makes more of it available for the brain. Taking 450-750 mg SJW at bedtime gives me a very restful sleep without the hangover feeling of a typical drug. And this product by Source Naturals gives me a standardized amount so that I don't get too much or too little. Good luck!
St. John's Wort

It's been about 2 weeks and I can feel the difference. I had taken St. John's Wort previously and it had worked for me. I hadn't taken it in years and found myself in a mild depression that wasn't letting up. I'm feeling more like myself and getting better day by day. I like that this is only two pills a day rather than the 3, 3 times a day of other products.

A close relative has been using this for over 5 years and has tried at least 15 other brands. This was recommended by a Pharmacist. Works very well, for the mild to medium depression. FYI In clinical trials up to 2400mg has been used. You can start with 2 450 mg. in the AM and if you need more, add 1- 450mg. about 3:pm. Not later, or you may not sleep or you could become too sleepy. Have recommended to other friends as well and they have had very good results. You must be patient and kind to yourself, depression is hard to deal with. This isn't 100% but very close. Be patient, it takes time to kick in and take all year through. Light boxes, good nutrition, enough sleep 7-8 hrs. at least, and light to medium exercises also helps with the St. Johns Wort. This is an excellent quality herb. Very good luck.

I've been using St. John's Work for many years after seeing a convincing story on ABC TV. Source Naturals brand is very good with consistent quality. The 450 mg size has worked better for me than the standard 300 mg tablets.
It Really Does Seem to Aid as a Mood Brighter

I only wish I would have known about this little natural wonder earlier. I take 2 daily, along with 5-HTP (a Serotonin precursor).
