MBi Nutraceuticals Hypericum Herbal Extract 2 oz.

Heal the intestinal tract with Hypericum. It promotes healing from dysentery and diarrhea and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Hypericum has been increasingly used for circulation, chronic weakness, internal cramps, colic, kidney or sacral pain, painful sacrum, urinary sand and stones, bloody urine, stool, nose or mouth and tissue repair.


In a major study, 3250 patients were treated with 300 mg hypericum extract three times daily by 633 physicians. Eight typical complaints heard in general practice were recorded: depression, gastrointestinal symptoms, restlessness, difficulty initiating sleep, difficulty falling asleep, headaches, cardiac symptoms, and sweating. About 80 percent of the patients felt improved after four weeks, as measured by medical and patient evaluations.


Hypericum Perforatum L. (St. John.s Wort) has been extensively studied in Europe over the last two decades, with more recent research in the United States. Short-term studies of 1-3 months, suggest that St. John' Wort is more effective than placebo (sugar pill), and equally effective as tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) in the treatment of mild-to-moderate major depression. Comparisons to the more commonly prescribed selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants, such as fluoxetine (Prozac®) or sertraline (Zoloft®), are more limited. However, other data suggest that St. John's Wort may be just as effective as SSRIs with fewer side effects.

In analyzing data from 1008 patients, results showed that hypericum extracts were more effective than placebo in the treatment of mild to moderately severe depression. In addition, six comparison studies found that hypericum was as effective as synthetic antidepressants but with fewer side effects. These studies reported that 10.8 percent of the patients had side effects with hypericum (gastrointestinal irritation, dizziness, dry mouth, and a few mild allergic reactions), while 35.9 percent reported side effects from prescription antidepressants.

In a 1997 randomized, double-blind study, 209 patients with severe, recurrent depression (but with no psychotic or delusional symptoms) were treated for six weeks with hypericum extract three times a day. This treatment of hypericum proved equal to treatment with a full dose of Tofranil (imipramine) but showed considerably less side effects.
