  1. read recently that the Saint Johnswort to combat depression, anxiety, inhibition, shyness, migraine, asthma, behavior problems in general has psychiatric and physical benefits and the GNC Store of vitamins sold Saint Johnswort under the name of SJW.

  2. @Christisms Running causes high blood pressure. So does sex. High blood pressure isn’t a bad thing unless it’s because your arteries are clogged, in which case you’re f***ed anyway, and should prepare to be squashed and sponged by the healthcare system, who actually do nothing but take advantage of your vulnerability.

  3. @hesellsmystuff That’s probably some crap you heard off a “reputable” drug company.

  4. @hesellsmystuff Not true. Have you taken it? I have, and I got none of that.

  5. @foofwolf22 taper pritstiq down slowly over a week or two if possible also have a few days ‘clean’ before starting sjw. also i found the original/natural herb very sedating and horrible side effects, i was reluctant to try the standardized westernized version but reluctantly i tried the standardized version which turned out to be much more manageable

  6. Incorrect information is being presented in the video – glaringly incorrect.

    St. Johns wort is well known to cause the following :

    The most common adverse effects reported are gastrointestinal symptoms, dizziness, confusion, tiredness and sedation.

    Confusion – tiredness – and sedation QUITE OBVIOUSLY would hinder / impair a persons attention, concentration, and or reaction time.

    The woman states that it does not – which is incorrect.

  7. I have to admit I’ve taken St John’s Wort for about 5 months now and it has worked wonders, It takes a while for it to build up and alot of people shy away from it as they think it’s not working but you have to give it time just like with any other anti-depressant, it has lifted my physical symptoms as well.

  8. I’m planning on starting SJW. I’m just coming off Pristiq. Is it safe to go from one to another?

  9. St. John’s Wort is known to sometimes cause high blood pressure. I would talk to a doctor first in your case.

  10. oh, I should add that it helps with concentration as well! It calms the mind so you can focus more.

  11. I use St.john’s wort for anxiety, Especially during exams. I have become so anxious during exam time that I freeze up and forget everything I learn.
    If I am having a low feeling or I am having trouble sleeping because I am thinking to much it really helps.
    Honestly, the tea is not potent or concentrated enough. I take SJW in tablet form. I have to say that it does really work and I don’t think I could get through university without it.

  12. Only in this poxy country (Ireland) that St. John’s Wort can only be got on prescription.

  13. amazingasa ,
    Don’t worry about sun exposure. Your skin is already used to sun from being outside most of the day, so you won’t get sun burn. Make your tea before going to bed at night, and make sure to let it steep, covered, for 15 minutes, to get the constituents from the herbs. Strain and store the tea in a thermos. Take the thermos with you at work and drink the tea throughout the day.

  14. i take Vilift for almost 6 months now and i have to say that it’s really great, it works for me.
