Perika - St. John's Wort Overview
St. John's Wort supplements have been around for decades and have earned a reputation as a safe and effective herbal supplement for mood support. The early-generation of St. John's Wort products were extracts standardized for hypericin, believed to be the principal active ingredient responsible for its effects on mood. Since that time, scientists have isolated another compound called hyperforin, which is more important for mood support. Hyperforin extracts are therefore more effective than hypericin St. John's Wort extracts, but they're also harder to find. Nature's Way Perika is the best hyperforin supplement available at this time, but like all St. John's Wort's, it doesn't work overnight and doesn't work when taken in a haphazard or occasional manner. For optimal results take Perika three times per day, as recommended, without missing or skipping doses. Allow 2-4 weeks before evaluating Perika's effects and don't combine it with prescription drugs before consulting a doctor or pharmacist.
Perika - St. John's Wort Description from Nature's Way
PROMOTES A POSITIVE MOOD
The patented Perika extract [WS 5570] is standardized to hyperforin - one of the key "mood enhancing" components found in St. John's Wort.
Hyperforin is rather unstable and can lose potency over time. However, using our proprietary HyperiSure System stabilizing technology, Perika delivers a guaranteed level of hyperforin for optimal effectiveness in promoting a positive mood.
