Healtheries St Johns Wort Plus is an advanced high potency formulation to help control mild anxiety, nervous tension and stress.
St Johns Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is a medicinal plant that has been known in traditional medicine as anti-inflammatory and a healing agent in the treatment of burns and scalds. Today concentrated extracts derived from the flowering plant providing active constituents hyperforin and hypericin are used for their anti-depressant activity.
St Johns Wort also has anti-viral activity that is currently undergoing medical research.
Rich in flavonoids, the chemical constituents found in St Johns Wort include a proanthocyanidin mixture containing catechins and epicatechin derivatives which show vascular activity  as well as aglycone quercetin, and rutin; and hypericin pseudohypericin and hyperforin.
The content of these compounds in St Johns Wort is strictly related to the harvesting period, drying process and storage. Healtheries St Johns Wort Plus uses the highest quality, flowering tops of St Johns Wort and is standardised to ensure each capsule contains 16.7mg of the active constituent hyperforin and 1.1mg of hypericin.
As a mum of two boys aged 1 and 3, who studies full time and works full time, stress takes its toll. I recently began taking this for that reason and I immediately noticed a significant difference in the way i handle stressful situations.
Instead of giving whoever was asking a short sharp answer, I now feel like explaining and helping more. I really could have never imagined these supplements working so well. They have also helped me stop panicking about not getting things done, and just soothing my thoughts out I guess, and allows me not to sweat the small stuff.
The only downside for these is that they affect some types of contraceptives (the pill / jadelle to name a couple) so you need to be aware of that before taking them ... or your stress levels may be increased even more!!
For years I have suffered from stress, usually brought on by job or family pressures. Nothing has changed in that regard.
However, since I started taking 2 of these a day with breakfast, the change in the way I cope with the stress has been remarkable, and easily noticed by my staff, co-workers and friends. It has also helped me deal with the pressures of a growing child who is right in the midst of the most difficult phase of his early years. (Let's see how helpful this stuff is when he's a teenager!)
The bottles I buy contain 30 tablets, so I get 15 days supply for $8.20, that makes it quite affordable, though I would like to see larger quantities for a more reasonable price... for those of us who expect to be taking it for a while. $0.55 per day isn't a lot, but it does add up if you look at the longer term. ($200 a year is still a tidy sum, after all.)
Overall, I would have to say this is a highly effective suppliment, and I am very grateful to have heard about it. I only wish I had known about it a few years back.
