Abstract

St John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is the main herbal species used to treat depression. The products available on the pharmaceutical and dietary supplement markets are obtained by a variety of preparation processes and their pharmacological effects may differ significantly. The purpose of this study therefore was to investigate the effect of different St John's Wort commercial preparations available on the French market. Only one preparation gave significant results in the forced swimming test.
