fig7: Structures of some of the major chemical constituents present in St. John's wort extracts.

Mentions: Hypericum perforatum L. is a herbaceous aromatic perennial plant, commonly known as St. John's wort. St. John's wort (SJW) is prepared from the dried aerial parts and flowering tops of H. perforatum, and used in both the USA and Europe to manage mild to moderate depression [12, 13, 30]. In the United States, St. John's wort is regulated as a dietary supplement; however, in reality it is used more as a CAM therapy for depression. The major chemical constituents of St. John's wort include the naphthodianthrones hypericin and pseudohypericin and the acylphloroglucinols hyperforin and adhyperforin (Figure 7) [13].
