I've used SJW on and off for many years. Perika gave me better results without the side effects (agitation, nausea) I had with other products. This is the only SJW product I've tried that's also standardized for hyperforin. Hyperforin is said to be very unstable over time--Perika's formula supposedly stabilizes the hyperforin to give it a longer shelf-life. My search for the right antidepressant is over. I hope it works as well for you!

I haven't noticed a medicinal effect from this tea, although my understanding is that the body doesn't absorb much silymarin from a milk thistle infusion as opposed to an extract--you'd need a large dose of it if you used it medicinally. It's a bit bland by itself, but it makes a fine base for chai spices--cinnamon, cardamom, clove. Sometimes I simmer one bag in the microwave with a piece of cinnamon stick--easy and delicious.
