I used to take the brand of St. John's Wort used in one of the original German studies to show effectiveness for moderate depression back in the 90s (which had both hypericin and hyperforin as the Jamieson brand does). I couldn't find that brand this time around so I've tried several others. Jamieson is the only one I can find that standardizes to both ingredients (hyperforin was shown in studies to be a critical component but most companies don't standardize to this ingredient as the earlier studies only talked about hypericin).
I have both the Webber Naturals and the Jamieson brand. The Webber stuff doesn't really work for me (I can tell within a week of starting it if there is an effect) and is only standardized to hypericin. The Jamieson brand works like a charm.
Best of all, I have not had any noticeable side effects from St. John's Wort, whereas side effects from prescription anti-depressants make them unusable for me.
I was a little doubtful about St. John's Wort, but when I did some investigating I found it was beneficial for temporary nervousness and calming of the mind. Seeing I live with night terrors and anxiety this is a temporary fix for me.
