ST. JOHNS WORT SUPPLEMENT
St. John's Wort Extract, Standardized, 300 mg, 90 Caps
St. John's Wort is mainly used for the treatment of mild to moderate depression. It has been proven in many European clinical studies to be a natural antidepressant and is widely used for this reason. St. John's Wort is the most popular anti-depressant in Germany, where one brand alone outsells Prozac seven to one. In 1996, the British Medical Journal summarized the results of over 20 studies on the herb which compared it to placebos and anti-depressant drugs. St. John's Wort not only outdid the placebos, it showed similar results to the drugs, but with fewer side effects. St. John's Wort contains the compound Hypericin which has been used as an anti-depressant since 1942. The tranquilizing quality of this compound increases blood flow to stressed tissue. This sedative effect relieves pain, anxiety and nervous tension. Among the uses for St. John's Wort are a variety of conditions such as chronic fatigue and mental burnout. Some research also suggests that St. John's Wort may reduce the growth of tumors. Consult with your health care provider if you are using anti-depressant medication before using this herb.

WILD YAM ROOT SUPPLEMENT
Various species of Wild Yam grows throughout North and Central America, and Asia, and has been used to treat indigestion, coughs, morning sickness, gall bladder pain, menstrual cramps, joint pain, and nerve pain. The primary, but incorrect use of Wild Yam as a source of women's hormones is based on the misconception that Wild Yam contains progesterone and DHEA. Wild Yam contains chemicals that chemists can use only as a starting point to manufacture progesterone. This herb does not contain progesterone. Some Wild Yam products have progesterone in them, but it is a synthetic progesterone that has been added to the product. Do not discount the use of Wild Yam as it can still be used to relax muscle spasms, reduce inflammations, and promote perspiration. This herb can be used for menstrual cramps or pain, menopausal symptoms, rheumatic conditions, and gallbladder complaints. Wild Yam is also used to treat colic, gallbladder disorder, hypoglycemia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), kidney stones, neuralgia, and rheumatism. Wild Yam comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. For best results, read and follow product label directions.
