Hypericum perforatum 1X

(1 customer review)


The nerve healer

Hypericum perforatum is a herbaceous perennial plant native to Europe, Central China, Western Himalayas, and Northern Africa.

It is a member of the Hypericaceae family.

The name Hypericum comes from the Greek words hyper meaning above and eikon meaning picture, as in olden days flowers were kept above pictures, images, and windows as it was thought that the evil spirits hated this plant and it would send them off.

Hypericum perforatum typically grows in dry sandy areas and prefers woods, and sunlight and the plant bears star-shaped yellow flowers during the summer season. Each flower has five petals, and they embody small pinpoint holes hence the name perforatum. And when the flowers are crushed or rubbed they leave the surface stained red which resembles blood.

Commonly known as St. John’s wort, God’s wonder plant, Witches Herb, Devil’s Scourge, goatweed or Klamath weed. 


The phytochemicals in flowers and leaves are hypericin and hyperforin. They are biologically active and are responsible for their effects and actions. Many studies prove that Hyperforin inhibits the synaptic reuptake of certain neurotransmitters like serotonin, noradrenaline, dopamine, and GABA. This mechanism is mainly responsible for its antidepressant and therapeutic activity. But pure hyperforin is a more potent antidementia agent than an antidepressant.


Hypericum plant has been in use since the ages as a herbal treatment for external and internal ailments. The flowers are used to make herbal tea, a concoction to relieve ailments. Because of its antiviral action, it is used to promote wound healing.

Hypericum perforatum uses are principally for wounds, burns, inflammation, and skin disorders And also to relieve anxiety, depression, insomnia etc.

Hypericum extracts are also said to have memory-enhancing properties.

Hypericum is a drug delicately linked to nerve injuries, pain and subsequent effects like anxiety, depression, neuralgia, neuritis, cramps traumatic or systemic, hyperhydrosis and nervousness. The pathogenesis is rich covering infections, ulcers, pain in ears & eyes and symptoms worse by least exposure or touch or in cold.

Hypericum has a history. This European plant in the medieval period was considered to have the power to repel evil. Medicinally, it was used to treat emotional and nervous complaints. Homoeopaths normally use it for nerve injuries, intense headaches and pain. In the late twentieth-century research studies found that 67% of patients with mild to moderate depression improved with Hypericum extract.1 Hypericum & Hypericin are found effective in many viral infections. Scientists started working on it for HIV and AIDS but found that it is a drug for monotherapy for mild to moderate depression (it has interactions with other antidepressants). It was also established that the mode of action of Hypericum is different from that of conventional antidepression drugs which elevate brain serotonin and evoke negative feedback control of serotonergic neurons.2 In another study favouring the drug for mild to moderate depression it was stated that it has a favourable side effect profile and a lower rate of drop-outs, another study showed that it has growth inhibition and apoptosis in human malignant cells.3 In another study on gene expression it was found that chronic antidepressant treatment by drugs of various classes has common pathways of changes in gene expression.4
