St John's Wort Herb Organic
St John's Wort Herb Organic ~ Hypericum perforatum
St. John’s Wort is a perennial plant that grows on glades, meadows, scrubs and forest edges. It is one of the most commonly used herbs due to its versatile operation. St. John’s wort can be used in diseases of the bile ducts and stomach, inflammation of the intestinal mucosa and stomach, as well as with reduced secretion of digestive juices, lack of appetite, abdominal pain, flatulence of winds and diarrhoea, because it relaxes smooth muscles in the digestive tract.
Besides, St. John’s wort has antidepressant and sedative effects. It is recommended for anxiety and nervous balance disorders. St. John’s wort owes these properties to hypericin, which inhibits the breakdown of serotonin. In contrast, a deficiency of serotonin can cause symptoms of depression, anxiety and bad mood.
1 teaspoon St. John’s wort per 200 ml boiling water. Leave to infuse covered for 20 minutes. Drink 2-3 times a day before eating.
