St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum extract) is an inhibitor of monoamine oxidase (MAO), which destroys monoamine neurotransmitters including dopamine in the brain and leads to decreased mood.
St. John’s Wort has also been shown to inhibit re-uptake of several neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, dopamine, noradrenaline, and GABA in the brain. Each of these actions can contribute to alleviating low mood status by slowing the recycling of neurotransmitters needed for preserving emotional balance. Flavonoids, hypericin and pseudo-hypericin, are the constituents thought to be associated with the benefits of St. John’s Wort.
