Product Details

Description

Mood imbalances, even in the most modest sense, can keep us from functioning at our best. Now Foods St. John's Wort, a perennial extract that blooms from June to September has been shown to help support a positive, balanced mood state.

Now Foods St. Johns Wort is a perennial plant that has oval-shaped leaves and golden-yellow flowers. This plant has been used as an herbal remedy for many centuries. Now Foods St. John's Wort is used to help heal wounds, as a balm for burns, a treatment of neuralgic conditions such as back pain, and also as a diuretic. A renewed interest in Now Foods St. Johns Wort occurred during the past decade, and it is now a component of numerous herbal preparations for the treatment of anxiety and depression.

Let's look at the chemistry behind Now Foods St. Johns Wort. The anthraquinone derivatives hypericin and pseudohypericin are thought to be the two agents responsible for the psychoactive effects of this herb. In addition, a plethora of flavonoids with awful sounding names such as kaempferol, quercetin, quercitrin, isoquercitrin, amentoflavone, luteolin, myricetin, hyperin, hyperoside, and rutin, as well as hyperforin and adhyperforin are also present.

As with many natural products, there are a variety of analytical methods that can be used. Now Foods  first looks to official methods. DAC 86 is the older German Pharmaceutical Codex method, designed primarily to detect total hypericins in dried Now Foods St. Johns Wort herb material. A different method is DAC 90, which uses an analytical column to separate hypericin and pseudohypericin from the herbal material, and precisely quantify each of them.

The Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC) International is currently in the process to establish an official method for Now Foods St. Johns Wort raw material and finished products. The method in consideration can analyze nine ingredients in Now Foods St. Johns Wort samples simultaneously. They are hypericin, pseudohypericin, hyperforin, rutin, quercetin, quercitrin, isoquercitrin, hyperoside, and I3,II8-biapigenin.

In order to make sure that NOW uses the best methods available, NOW has adapted the DAC 90 HPLC method especially for our products, and now they are working on the AOAC method for the analysis of Now Foods St. Johns Wort products. In this way, we work to continually ensure the quality of our products by using the most up-to-date methods available.
