I have been under crushing stress and pressure for the past few years, and have gotten to the point of throwing up in the mornings, shaking, and suffering nausea, no appetite and general depressed moods throughout the day. Since taking St. John's Wort, there is a marked decrease in morning episodes and an uplifted mood and increased appetite during the day.

Was sick of the weight gain and PSSD I get from the usual antidepressants. This started working in 24 hours. Makes me feel fantastic. No side effects so far.

Comment:
I've been taking SJW for a little over one week now. My husband recommended this product to me. In the past, I was diagnosed with moderate depression and anxiety; then placed on antidepressants (awful!) Gave me mood swings and a bunch of other awful side effects. I go through spouts of depression that make me want to commit suicide. It's almost like I'm fighting a war with a demon in m ... Show Full Comment
