St. John’s Wort: natural ingredient of Humor

St. John’s Wort: natural ingredient of HumorSt. John’s Wort (Hypericum perfora-
tum) acts synergistically on depression through various processes such as blocking monoamine oxidase type A (MAO-A) and catechol - metiltransferasi (COMT), which implies an increased activity of the nervous mediators having a stimulating action. Both of these actions are due to quercetin, its aglyco-
ne altetraidroxantone producing a marked antidepressant effect.

us covering the role, even in this situation, of antidepressant.
