I have been taking St. John's Wort for nearly 2 years now after speaking to my physician about natural supplements that boost mood. I struggle with mild depression and I take St. John's Wort about two weeks per month, aligning with my cycle – during my PMS week and during my period week. I also "wean" myself off slowly after my period, lowering to 2 capsules, then 1, for a couple of days. I found this process gives me the extra mental boost I need when my hormones are making my brain extra crazy. I chose Oregon's Wild Harvest specifically for their high quality and excellent service. Since my local health foods store is pricey and Amazon kept not fulfilling my Subscribe & Save orders, I took my subscription to the source – and OWH has never let me down, even during chaotic times.
