Properties MILLEPERTUIS luminary CUT
St. John's Wort has antidepressant properties, the activity is related to inhibition of the reuptake of neurotransmitters (serotonin especially dopamine, noradrenaline) and moderate interaction with the GABA-A receptors (mainly hyperforin). It is anxiolytic, sedative even with free extracts of hyperforin. The naphtodianthrones are highly reactive in the presence of light and it is these that give the red color of the oil, hyperforin would be the most serious candidate. The amentoflavone binds to the benzodiazepine receptor. The antidepressant effect is probably due to synergy between different substances. Hypericin is sedative and melatoninergic, it could fight against cytomegalovirus and herpes simplex. It is a neuroprotective plant. The hyperoside acts on human brain tumors, and induces inhibition of tumor growth of leukemic cells and of brain glioblastoma cells. St. John's wort is as serotonin and melatoninergic (leads to an increase in melatonin levels). There is a modest vis-à-vis behavioral stressors activity.
A meta-analysis reported in 1996 the results of 27 trials (1757 patients on overall) comparing St. John's wort or placebo with either active treatment. It suggests that St. John's wort was more effective than placebo and as effective as tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) in low doses in the treatment of depression. Its mechanism of action appears to be similar to that of conventional antidepressants: inhibition of monoamine reuptake.
A test double blind on 324 patients suffering from mild to moderate depression were treated with an alcoholic extract to 0.2% hypericin showed a similar efficacy to 50 mg of imipramine twice daily, another study showed as effective as imipramine, with better tolerance.
