St. John's Wort Conc. Timed Release
How It Works:
St. John’s Wort is an important herb for the nervous system. It has long been popular for supporting this system. St. John’s Wort contains at least 10 pharmacologically active constituents. Numerous studies show that one of these, hypericin, appears to act by elevating mood and acting as a mild calmative. Recent scientific studies have shown that another constituent, hyperforin, may have more powerful mood-enhancing, spirit-lifting properties. A randomized, double- blind, placebo-controlled study published in 1998 showed that patients who received the highest amounts of hyperforin- containing St. John’s Wort scored highest on the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression. (A high score on the rating scale indicates lower levels of depression.) Time-Release St. John’s Wort contains the finest raw St. John’s wort herb, standardized to contain 0.3% hypericin in a base of 450 mg St. John’s wort extract powder.

How It Works:
5-Hydroxytryptophan is a precursor to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter that helps regulate appetite, mood and sleep. 5-Hydroxytryptophan is converted into serotonin in the body, which may help elevate mood, assist in controlling hunger and promote restful sleep. 5-HTP Power blends three adaptogenic herbs—eleuthero, ashwaganda and suma— with 5-HTP to help the body adjust to changes. It also contains vitamin B6 and zinc, which support the action of 5-HTP.
