What is St. John’s Wort
St. John’s Wort is a plant species also known as Hypericum perforatum. It is widely known as a treatment for depression and memory loss.
It was used in early days to treat moderate depression. After many clinical trials, researchers also noticed that it helped enhance brain functions for those taking the herb.
How it works
St. John’s Wort is known for its extreme effectiveness as an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It helps regulate toxins and radicals in the brain which in turn affect memory and brain function.
A study by Rhawn Joseph, Ph. D found that St. John’s Wort was even more effective in the treatment of memory loss when it was combined with another popular supplement called Ginkgo biloba.
