Saint John’s Wort Tincture
You might think of Saint John’s Wort Tincture as the herb for S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder) or mild to medium depression.
Scientists believe it acts like an M.A.O inhibitor to elevate the levels of the neurotransmitters norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine in the brain.
This is done by inhibiting an enzyme called monoamine oxidase, that carries these neurotransmitters away once they are used up.
By stopping this action there are more neurotransmitters to fire in the brain.
With an increase in neurotransmitters, the brain is able to work more efficiently and mood elevates.
St. John’s wort acts without any food interactions or side effects, unlike the prescription MAO inhibitors.
But Saint Johns Wort, Hypericum perforatum, is so much more than the anti-depressant herb.
It is nervine that relieves pain by correcting faulty nerve pathways and reducing inflammation.
Any time there is sudden pain, shooting pain, or stabbing pain that indicates that nerves are involved is a good time to reach for St. John’s wort tincture.
Saint John’s wort Tincture is an antibiotic for gram-positive bacteria and is traditionally used for wound care where there is a risk of infection.
Soldiers have used Saint Johns Wort Tincture on the battlefield since Alexander the Great, and possibly even earlier than that.
This herb is also antiviral, antispasmodic, and pain-relieving.
It is useful for painful periods and for the shingles virus.
There is some concern with drug interactions with St. John’s wort taken internally. Always check with your personal health professional if you are on prescription or OTC drugs and you plan to use St. John’s Wort tincture, as it’s one of the more active herbal remedies.
