Rated 5 out of 5 by s74r1 Only brand I buy anymore!
I've been taking St. John's Wort for years and Swanson's brand is consistent everytime with no bad batches yet.
I've tried different brands which looked better but a lot of them seem to give me negative results - sometimes even the opposite effect as intended!
So I keep coming back to Swanson's brand standardized St John's Wort and I don't have much reason to look at any other brands anymore. I can't really say much negative except maybe it isn't the most potent out there...? But I definitely notice the difference if I stop taking it (or run out). Usually once a day is enough for me unless I'm going through a rough patch.
As with most herbs, it's hard to notice the difference they make since it takes time to gradually show their potential effects.
I also highly recommend Swanson's Ginkgo Biloba with this, they're a great combination.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Pieter One of the least potent St J. W products I have tried out of over ten brands, no headaches or other negative side effects with this though.

I use St. John's Wort periodically to balance my mood in a stressful day. I have also used it when I have difficulty sleeping. It seems to reduce stress and allow me to fall asleep more quickly.

Truck driving kinda gets me down, being out for weeks and driving long hours. This herbal extract seems to really help after about 3 weeks. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jayvee56 Extremely pleased
I use this in combination with 3 other supplements in place of another company's outrageously expensive concoction. At three times the savings, and about twice the effectiveness, Swanson's St. John's Wort has my vote of confidence and no-holds-barred recommendation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DBS11 no dice
This is the 3rd time in the past 15 years I have tried St. Johns for it's advertised emotional benefits. I got the standardized product to ensure the effective ingredient in it. For the 3rd time it did nothing for me. I took 3 capsules per day and noticed no improvement, sorry to say.

Have been taking St. John's Wort for years. I do see a difference in my mood when I am taking this. Swanson's had the best price I've found. I'll keep purchasing for sure!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stac3y Good Price
This is not the best, most effective St. Johns Wort I have used, but it does work and costs about 1/4 the price of my favorite, so I use this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by daizymaizey not for me
I was very surprised how negatively I reacted to this supplement. I really wanted to take it long enough to know if it would improve my mood but within an hour of taking it I felt angry, irritable, in fact I had to stop after just 3 days. I'm glad I tried it, because now I know. I'm sure it's very helpful for some, but it didn't react well with me at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jonceramic Wonderful standardized quality
I've used various St. John's wort over the years, with varying degrees of success. Much of the problem I've found has been with non-standardized extracts.
Since I switched to the Swanson's standardized extract, the effectiveness has been consistent and reliable. I don't even know if it really matters or not, but it also has a wonderfully consistent fresh herb smell.
And, the price is incredibly good. Thank you, Swanson!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LyndaRS I wish I had tried this YEARS ago~
I've tried just about everything over the years, and had pretty much given up on ever finding anything that would work for me. Why oh why didn't I try St. John's Wort years ago? For some reason I thought it wouldn't work... well, I'm thrilled to say, I was wrong! I expect to be taking this for the rest of my life. Swanson, I can't thank you enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HerbalistNutritionist Works just as well
Works just as well as the name brands although it is only a 250 mg extract, even with added whole St. John's Wort ariel parts. For what i needed it for, I just took on extra. At the price Swanson asks however, this is not a problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MtRaven Don't get along with St. John
Excellent quality and potency, but I just don't do well on St John's Wort. Thought it might have been problem with another brand, but St John's Wort just makes me feel, for lack of a better term, weird. Kind of out of balance and anxious. However, L-Tyrosine and 5-HTP do work to improve my mood without side-effects.

Works like it says it does. Puts me in a feel good mood, I usually take just 1 in the morning (2 on those stressful days).

Rated 5 out of 5 by alee Really helped my emotional health
I have been taking St. John's Wort with L-Tyrosine for over two months now the combination has made a big difference in my life. I am more emotionally stable and able to deal with a stressful full-time job and parenting three sons. I really realize what a difference it's making if I forget a day or two. Definitely recommend.
