St John's wort has been used medicinally since ancient Greek times. The name St John's wort is related to its yellow flowers, traditionally gathered for the feast of St John the Baptist and the term 'wort' is the old English word for plant. St John's wort helps to relieve anxiety, nervous unrest, restlessness, irritability, and sleeplessness. Passionflower is included to support the sedative and relaxant properties of St John's wort.
Adults: Take one to two capsules with a meal daily.
If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare practitioner. St John's wort affects the way many prescription medicines work, including the oral contraceptive pill. Consult your doctor.
