Actions and pharmacology
Numerous studies confirm St. Johns Worts antidepressant effect. Its active ingredients are mainly hyperforin, hypericin and pseudohypericin. Hyperforin seems to be the most active molecule for the relief of depression and mood disorders: it inhibits serotonin reuptake (the same as antidepressant medications like Zoloft®). However, St. Johns Wort has a more global action because it also reduces the reuptake of many other neurotransmitters like GABA, L glutamate, norepinephrin and dopamin. It also has an inhibiting effect on serotonin-specific receptors: 5 HT3, 5 HT4 and, to a lesser degree, 5 HT2. These effects increase the neurotransmitters bioavailability and promote mood-improvement.(1) A few studies have also noted an in vitro activity against some viruses (herpes, polio, hepatitis C, retrovirus, cytomegalovirus, etc.) and bacteria (some gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria). The clinical significance of this is yet to be demonstrated.(1) The German Commission E acknowledges its benefits in cases of: psycho-vegetative disturbances, depressive moods, anxiety and nervous unrest.(2)
