St. John's wort is most commonly used for mild to moderate depression and conditions that sometimes go along with depression such as anxiety, tiredness, loss of appetite and trouble sleeping. Studies have also shown SJW to have antibacterial and antiviral properties. The main active chemicals in SJW are hypericin and hyperforin – these give the herb most of its efficacy, targeting chemical messengers in the brain such as serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline.
