About St. John's Wort
St. John's Wort is a medicinal herb that has a long history of traditional use in Europe as a phytomedicine to support mental health and emotional wellness. St. John's Wort's medicinal uses were first recorded in ancient Greece. The name St. John's Wort comes from the fact that the plant flowers around St. John's Day, which falls on June 24th. The aerial parts of the herb that are used medicinally are harvested during the flowering season and then dried to make the extract. St. John's Wort contains many beneficial compounds, hypericins and hyperforins being the two most common, that are responsible for the herb's therapeutic benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the active ingredients in St. John's Wort Gold?
St. John's Wort contains many beneficial compounds, hypericins and hyperforins being the two most common, that are responsible for the herb's therapeutic benefits.
Does St. John's Wort Gold contain anything other than the active ingredient?
In addition to the active ingredient, St. John's Wort Gold contains:
- Tapioca Maltodextrin - The Maltodextrin in the product is actually part of the St. John's Wort ingredient complex and was not added to the product by NutriGold during manufacturing. Because the FDA guidelines on declaring excipients present in the ingredient on a finished product's label are vague, most companies choose not to declare these excipients even though they are present in a significant enough amount and consumers should have that information when making a purchasing decision.
Because what you see is NOT what you always get when it comes to supplements, NutriGold is once again leading the way with regard to truth and transparency in supplement labeling by declaring not just what is added by us during manufacturing, but also declaring excipients that are a part of the ingredient complex we source from our vendors. This is just another thing we do at NutriGold to ensure that our valued customers have all the information they need to make informed purchasing decisions. One small step for NutriGold, one giant leap for supplement consumers everywhere!
What are some purity concerns with St. John's Wort?
The most important purity concern with St. John's Wort is the residual amount of Cadmium in the extract. St. John's Wort is a known Cadmium collector, which means the plant has a tendency to absorb large amounts of Cadmium from the soil. To ensure a pure extract, it is extremely important that St. John's Wort is grown in soil free of this heavy metal and care is taken to ensure that trace amounts, if any, that are naturally present in the herb, are removed during extraction.
Is St. John's Wort Gold free of allergens and GMOs?
St. John's Wort Gold is verified free of corn, egg, gluten, milk, peanut, shellfish and soy allergens by an independent lab. It's also verified free of GMOs by the Non-GMO Project™.
