Many Uses for St. John’s Wort Through the Centuries

St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) has been used as a medicine dating back to ancient Greece, where it was used for a range of illnesses, including various “nervous disorders.” St. John’s Wort has antibacterial and antiviral properties. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it useful applied topically to the skin to help heal wounds and burns. Experts say hypcericin, the active chemical in St. John’s Wort, probably gives the herb most of its effectiveness. The herb also has other chemicals that may play a role. It is one of the most commonly purchased herbal products in the United States.
 
St. John’s Wort is widely used in Europe, especially Germany, as an herbal treatment for depression. In Germany, general medical practioners commonly prescribe the herb for some patients with depression, especially adolescents and children. Its therapeutic use has been growing in other parts of the world during the last two decades.
 
Most studies show that St. John’s Wort may help treat mild-to-moderate depression, and has fewer side effects than most prescription antidepressants. Recent studies appear to conclude more favorably than unfavorably regarding St. John’s Wort’s effectiveness in treating depression. It may increase the potency of pharmaceutical MAO inhibitors (antidepressants) and photo-allergic reactions, so it is important to seek advice from a health care professional before using St. John’s Wort.
 
St. John’s Wort is available without a prescription in the United States, while some countries require a prescription (e.g. Ireland).
 
It is most commonly taken in tablet or capsule form, but it is also available in teabags and tinctures, which are medicinal extracts in a solution of alcohol.
