WHAT MAKES OURS BETTER?

*Our product provides the active constituents you want with standardized levels of both hyperforin (3.0 percent) and hypercin (0.2 percent).

*NSP tested a large number of St Johns Wort products and various raw material lots for hyperforin content. We found that all of them were very low in hyperforin except for a handful of products (including ours) that specifically claim hyperforin content on the label.

*NSP Time Release St Johns Wort offers the beneficial effects of St Johns Wort all day long in a convenient, specially coated time release tablet.

SCIENTIFIC SUPPORT

St Johns Wort contains at least 10 pharmacologically active constituents. Numerous studies show that one of these, hypercin, appears to act similar to MAO inhibitors and seratonin reuptake inhibitors, elevating mood and acting as a mild sedative.
Recent scientific studies have shown that another constituent, hyperforin, may have more powerful mood enhancing , spirit lifting properties. A randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study published in 1998 showed that patients who received the highest amounts of hyperforin-containing St Johns Wort scored highest on the Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression. ( A high score on the rating scale indicates lower levels of depression.)
