St. John's Wort, with its yellow flowers, can be found not only in the whole of Europe but also in large parts of Asia, America and Australia.  The leaves have distinctive dark green dots which are in fact tiny little containers of the red active agent hypericin.  For a long time people thought this was the main agent, but nowadays it is known that it is the combination of the many different ingredients acting together as a whole that make for a synergetic effect.  Quite recently it has been discovered that St. John's Wort stimulates the pineal gland.  Melatonin, a highly active hormone produced by this gland, influences and regulates our nerves and hormone production and thus plays an important role in our organism.

St. John's Wort has a stabilising and strengthening effect on the body when it is under nervous or mental strain.  The effects of stress are lessened.  It regulates and strengthens the functions of the nervous system and has a favourable effect in cases of nervous strain and light depression.  On the one hand St. John's Wort relaxes, on the other it has a stimulating  effect; it lessens tiredness but does not reduce energy and ability to react.  Thus strained nerves can be balanced and strengthened in harmony with nature and with our environment.

To achieve the full strengthening effect on the nerves, it is recommended that it be taken over a prolonged period.  The effects build up slowly but surely within two to three weeks.  While taking this product, intensive UV-radiation should be avoided.
