HYPERIMED St. John's WortDuring our lives, all of us will experience occasional periods of depression, melancholy or general low mood. While this is perfectly normal, it’s not something that we have to grin and bear. While it’s extremely common for doctors to prescribe pharmaceutical drugs for this purpose, these are heavily laden with negative side effects and have staggering failure rates. Fortunately, Integrative Therapeutics offers a natural alternative: HyperiMed. It contains the most essential components of St. John’s Wort, an herb that has long been valued for its potent antidepressant properties.

While the medical community isn’t yet certain of the herb’s precise mechanism, it is currently believed that St. John’s Wort acts as a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, which increases the amount of available serotonin in the brain. Having adequate amounts of this neurotransmitter is critical to your ability to enjoy things, feel content and derive pleasure from life. Furthermore, this herb’s active constituents come with far fewer side effects than the oft-prescribed pharmaceuticals. What’s more impressive is that its effectiveness is supported by more than 25 double-blind clinical trials.

If you feel anxious, melancholy, or negative, talk to a healthcare professional about natural options for treatment. St. John’s Wort is just one natural mood booster, but there are other things you can look at doing if your serotonin levels are out of balance or if you are at risk for depression or other health concerns.
