Around 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem, such as anxiety or depression, each year. It is a common disorder and can exhibit in a range of ways, such as low mood, loss of interest or pleasure, low self-worth, sleep disturbances and poor concentration.

Research suggests that St John’s wort works in a similar way to commonly prescribed antidepressants, SSRIs (selective serotonin uptake inhibitors) often known as Prozac, by ensuring the brain doesn’t use up all of its ‘feel good chemicals’. It has been found to inhibit the uptake of noradrenaline and dopamine, two other neurotransmitters that, like serotonin, produce feelings of happiness, pleasure and satisfaction.

HRI Good Mood tablets contain quality extracts of this potent herb to support feelings of mild anxiety and mild depression. Look out for the THR logo on St John’s Wort products to indicate Traditional Herbal Registration with the MHRA, for quality and safety standards.
