   St. John's Wort - Herb/Nutrient
Ingredients: St. John's Wort
Symptoms: Constant fatigue, low physical and emotional energy
Description: St. John's Wort (Hypericum) has been studied for its potential antidepressant and antiviral effects. (Caution: Dr. Donald Brown of Bastyr University recommends that persons with fair skin avoid exposure to strong sunlight and other sources of ultraviolet light when taking St. John's Wort because of some cases of photosensitivity that have been reported. He also advises avoiding foods that contain tyramine, alcoholic beverages, and medications such as tyrosine, narcotics, amphetamines, and over-the-counter cold and flu remedies while taking St. John's Wort. St. John's Wort should not be taken while also taking prescription antidepressants. It is also Dr. Brown's opinion that St. John's Wort should not be used during pregnancy or lactation.)
