I like the idea of this

Ginkgo, or ginkgo biloba, has received a lot of attention lately for its ability to improve circulation and brain activity.

Many people have looked to St. John's wort as an herbal alternative to prescription medications for anxiety and depression

janine said...'s a true thing that some herbal remedies can decrease the effectiveness of birth control... if you're on it and want to start taking st. john's wort or other things.. talk to your doctor.

7. ST. JOHN'S WORT FOR DEPRESSION. While some studies suggest otherwise, the majority show that St. John's wort, in capsules or tablets, works as well as Prozac and Zoloft for relieving mild to moderate depression, and causes fewer side effects.
Dosage: Follow label directions. Studies showing benefits have used 600 to 1,800 milligrams/day. Most studies have used 900 milligrams/day.
Cautions: St. John's wort can cause an upset stomach, increases sensitivity to sunlight and reduces the effectiveness of birth control pills. If you take medication regularly, it's important to consult your physician or pharmacist before using St. John's wort.
