There is some strong scientific evidence that it is effective for mild to moderate depression. It improves depressive mood and decreases nervousness and tiredness related to depression. Also, St. John’s wort might not be as effective for more severe cases of depression. St. John’s wort is also used for symptoms of menopause and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.
