t a time when many of us lead incredibly stressful lives, it is easy to find ourselves feeling the effects of tension and anxiety and even depression.

St. Johns Wort has been used medicinally since Roman times and is now one of the most popular herbs in the United States, especially among women. Originally used as an aid to speed healing of wounds, it is now commonly used for its calming effect. St. Johns Wort is reported to help ease tension and anxiety as well as relieve mild depression. Women have found it to be soothing when experiencing the mood swings often associated with menopause. St. Johns Wort has been shown in numerous studies to be as effective as tricyclic anti-depressants and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) with fewer side effects.
Griffonia bean extract is included for its contribution of 5-hydroxytryptophan or 5-HTP. 5-HTP is an amino acid that the body converts into serotonin. Increased intake of 5-HTP raises serotonin levels, which may have a positive effect on mood and anxiety. Low levels of serotonin have been associated with the development of depression.
Siberian eleutherococcus root extract is more commonly known as Siberian ginseng. A distant relative to more common Korean and American ginsengs, Siberian ginseng is considered an adaptogen meaning it helps the body return to a normal balance after being in a stressful circumstance.
Tyrosine is a non-essential fatty acid. Tyrosine serves as a building block necessary for the composition of epinephrine, norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine. These chemicals all work to regulate mood. Deficiencies of tyrosine have been associated with depression.
Inositol is a vitamin, closely associated with the B complex, shown to have a calming effect.
