"Now I Just Don't Give A Darn"

St. John's Wort

    St. John's Wort has recently been receiving national recognition as a natural antidepressant equal in results to the popular drug known as Prozac, yet without the side effects associated with drug antidepressants. Numerous animal and human clinical trials have demonstrated the efficacy of St. John's Wort extract in the treatment of depression.

    In Germany, St. John's Wort is now the leading anti-depressant, outselling Prozac 20 to 1, and it's on the rise in other European countries, too. In this country, it's even catching on in the heart of the traditional American medical establishment -- Harvard Medical School. They found that in mild to moderate depression, there was some evidence that St. John's would be a helpful drug. 

    St. John's Wort is a bushy perennial plant with numerous yellow flowers. It is native to many parts of the world including Europe and the United States. It is a wild growing plant in northern California, southern Oregon and Colorado.

    The plant has been used as an herbal remedy since the Middle Ages. Many believed it to have magical powers to protect one from evil. Early Christian mystics named the plant after John the Baptist and is traditionally collected on St. John's Day, June 25, soaked in olive oil for days to produce a blood red anointing oil known as the "blood of Christ."

    It has a 2,400-year history of safe and effective usage in many folk and herbal remedies. Historically used as a nerve tonic, St. John's Wort is now widely used as a mild antidepressant. It is a potent antiviral and antibacterial that is being investigated as a treatment for AIDS.

    Its action is based on the ability of the active ingredient, hypericin to inhibit the breakdown of neurotransmitters in the brain. The herb also inhibits monoamine oxidase (MAO) and works as a serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SRI); both are actions similar to drugs prescribed for depression. In Germany, nearly half of depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders are treated with hypericin. St. John's Wort should not be taken with any other antidepressants, it is not effective for severe depression, and no one should stop taking any prescribed medications for depression without proper medical care.

Ginkgo Biloba

Dr. Kleijnen reviewed the literature regarding Ginkgo Biloba and found 8 well performed and executed research trials.

    An extract from the leaves of the Ginkgo Biloba tree can stabilize and even improve dementia for up to one year, according to a report in The Journal of the American Medical Association.

    In Europe, Ginkgo Biloba extract is used to treat a range of cognitive disorders. It has recently been approved in Germany for the treatment of dementia.

    We are convinced that a lot people will find this powerful product changes their lives in a positive manner. A dynamite product with life changing results. Another winner in the LifeTek lineup.
