St. John’s Wort 900™ – Maximum Strength – is a convenient once-per-day supplement that naturally supports healthy mood and mental well-being.*
This special standardized St. John’s Wort formula provides 24-hour clinically-proven levels of hypericin (0.3%) to promote positive mood and healthy emotional support. St. John’s Wort 900™ improves concentration, mental resilience, and promotes healthy sleep.*
How it Works:
St. John’s Wort is a perennial plant that is native to Europe and Asia, but has become naturalized in North America after being introduced here in the 1690’s. It has been clinically studied for support of mental well-being and has shown great promise in numerous double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trials.*1-3
One of the plant’s key compounds is hypericin, which in clinical studies was typically standardized at 0.3% for the most benefit.*Hypericin is generally a more stable component of St. John’s Wort, and is easier to measure and standardize.* It is concentrated in the flowers and buds of the plant, and is responsible for the characteristic crimson pigments in the flowers and leaves.1
However, getting a beneficial level of St. John’s Wort – 900 mg per day -- can be a challenge when the dosage is divided. Therefore, it is best to use a convenient, once-daily form to support healthy mental well-being.*
Other research points to St. John’s Wort – and hypericin specifically – having cellular health-supporting benefits as well.*4
