St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum), a common shrub-like perennial, bears bright yellow flowers that contain numerous therapeutic substances when dried. Europeans have used the Herb for centuries to calm jangled nerves and heal wounds.
Recently, clinical studies have highlighted the fact that St. John's wort has a stimulant effect on the nervous system, due mainly to its active ingredient xantone. The herb has been found to increase the amount of serotonin (the 'happy chemical') in the body. It also contains hypericin that inhibits monoamine oxidase, a bodily chemical associated with feeling down.
