St. John’s wort

The use of St. John's Wort goes back to ancient Greece, when they used this herb to treat nervous disorders and other illnesses. The aerial (above ground) parts of St. John's Wort are used by many for depression, anxiety, and seasonal affective disorder. Historically, it has been used to treat many conditions like sciatica, poisonous reptile bites, kidney and lung ailments, depression, and for topical treatment of wounds and burns.

Studies suggest that St. John's Wort possesses antidepressant effects by making the neurotransmitters serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine more readily available to the brain. These neurotransmitters help elevate and improve one's mood.

Traditional Uses of St. John's Wort:

  • For depression and anxiety
  • For seasonal affective disorder
  • For anti-bacterial properties
  • For PMS and menopause ailments
  • For sciatica and nervous disorders
  • For wounds, eczema, burns, and hemorrhoids (topical)


  • Astragalus has a general firming, toning, improves physical performance properties

  • Supports the normal function of the immune system with frequent colds, high physical and mental stress, secondary immunodeficiencies, including in cancer patients

  • Astragalus has hypotensive, cardiotonic and diuretic effect, increasing coronary blood vessels and improves blood circulation in the kidneys, normalize digestion and adrenal function

  • Effective with hypertension, heart failure, edema of various origins, spleen diseases, metabolic disorders, including diabetes

  • The astragalus is used in infertility, pregnancy eclampsia, a maternity facility, accelerating separation of the placenta

  • It contains antioxidants, which protect cells against damage caused by free radicals

  • Astragalus has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and diuretic properties

  • Astragalus has antiviral properties and stimulates the immune system, suggesting that it is effective at preventing colds


  • Hawthorn is rich in amino acids and minerals, particularly magnesium

  • It is used in functional disorders of the cardiovascular and nervous system as a cardiotonic, antiarrhythmic, antihypertensive, anti atherosclerotic, antispasmodic, sedative

  • It normalizes the rhythm of the heart, improves coronary circulation, has a positive effect on metabolic processes in the myocardium

  • Hawthorn is used for chronic heart conditions — primarily congestive heart failure, but also angina and arrhythmias. Chemicals in hawthorn act directly on the heart muscle to increase the force of heartbeats and on the blood vessels to relax the arteries around the heart. It may also lengthen the time that the heart rests between beats

  • Hawthorn also works indirectly by widening blood vessels close to the surface of the skin. As a result, it may help to lower blood pressure

  • Hawthorn helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and inhibits the formation of atherosclerotic plaques, has a pronounced antioxidant effect, lowers blood pressure, urine output increases

  • Used in cardiovascular diseases: coronary heart disease after myocardial infarction, hypertension, arrhythmia, atherosclerosis prevention, as well as increased nervous irritability, insomnia


  • According to the US National Institute of Health, magnesium is need for more than 300 biochemical processes in the body.  It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, and keeps bones strong.

  • Magnesium also helps regulate blood sugar levels, promotes normal blood pressure, and is known to be involved in energy metabolism and protein synthesis.

  • There is increased recognition of the role of magnesium in preventing and managing disorders such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

  • Magnesium has a cardioprotective effect, providing a beneficial effect on heart rhythm disturbances, coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction, improving myocardial oxygen supply.

  • Magnesium exhibits vasodilator effect and helps reduce blood pressure.

  • Magnesium is an anti-stress macro-elements, has a normalizing effect on the nervous system and its higher parts (especially in combination with vitamin B6) with nervous tension, depression, neurosis.

  • Magnesium in diabetes prevents cardiovascular complications and, in combination with zinc, chromium, selenium improves the function of beta cells of the pancreas. In diseases of the respiratory system enhances the removal of the bronchi and bronchospasm.

  • Magnesium has a positive impact on the reproductive system. In pregnant women, magnesium deficiency prevents the development of the fruit (along with folic and pantothenic acid), the development of gestosis, premature births and miscarriages.

Vitamin B1

  • Thiamine works with the other B vitamins to change protein, carbohydrate, and fat to energy. It is especially vital for changing carbohydrates to energy. It is a key factor in the healthy functioning of all the body’s cells, especially the nerves.

  • Vitamin B1 helps the body cells convert carbohydrates into energy. It is also essential for the functioning of the heart, muscles, and nervous system. As a coenzyme, thiamin plays a key role in energy production, conversion of glucose to fat. Every cell of the body requires vitamin B1 to form the fuel the body runs on — ATP. Nerve cells require vitamin B1 in order to function normally.

  • Thiamin is needed for the metabolism of carbohydrates, fat, and protein. It is especially involved in carbohydrate metabolism in the brain.

  • Thiamin may be used to support nerve health, and minimize numbness and tingling, helping to protect against this condition.

  • Thiamine aids the nervous system and is essential for the functioning of important enzymes. These enzymes have vital roles in the processes that make energy available in the body. Thiamine is essential for the transmission of certain types of nerve signal between the brain and the spinal cord.

  • Depression, poor memory, muscle weakness and stiffness, nerve tingling, burning sensation and numbness, tiredness, headache, loss of appetite and nausea are some of the symptoms and signs of its deficiency.

Vitamin B6

  • Vitamin B6 supports more vital bodily functions than any other vitamin.

  • It is vital in the metabolism of amino acids in the intestines. It allows the amino acids to be synthesized, broken down and absorbed.

  • The forming of histamine, serotonin, dopamine and adrenaline are dependent on vitamin B6.

  • Vitamin B6 helps to maintain healthy immune system functions, to protect the heart from cholesterol deposits, and to prevent kidney stone formation.

  • Vitamin B6 is indicated for the treatment of anemia, neurologic disturbances, seborrhoeic dermatitis, and cheilosis.

  • In combination with folic acid and vitamin B12, vitamin B6 lowers homocysteine levels which is an amino acid linked to heart disease and stroke, and possibly other diseases as well, such as osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Pyridoxine is required for the balancing of hormonal changes in women as well as assisting the immune system and the growth of new cells.

Vitamin B12

  • Vitamin B12′s main functions are in the formation of red blood cells and the maintenence of a healthy nervous system.

  • Vitamin B12 is an especially important vitamin for maintaining healthy nerve cells and it aids in the production of DNA and RNA, the body’s genetic material. Cyanocobalamin works to promote normal growth and development, helps with certain types of nerve damage, and treats pernicious anemia.

  • Nerves are surrounded by an insulating fatty sheath comprised of a complex protein called myelin. Vitamin B12 helps maintain the myelin sheath that insulates nerve fibres from each other. People with vitamin B12 deficiency show irregular destruction of the myelin sheaths, which eventually causes paralysis and death.

  • Vitamin B12 is essential for the proper production of blood platelets and red and white blood cells, the manufacture of vital substances needed for cell function, and the metabolism of nutrients necessary for cell growth.

  • It participates in a variety of cellular reactions to release energy from carbohydrates, fats and protein.


  • Iodine is a trace element necessary for the normal function of the thyroid gland. Specifically, the thyroid gland uses iodine in the production of the thyroid hormone.

  • Iodine deficiency can result in goiter (a condition in which the thyroid becomes enlarged in an effort to compensate for the body’s lack of iodine), as well as impaired mental and physical development in children.

  • Iodine deficiency during pregnancy can cause miscarriage and increased risk of infant mortality.

  • Iodine deficiency leads to a decrease in basal metabolism.

    • First of all, it affects the state of the central nervous system.

    • The child should receive the necessary amount of iodine in the womb.

    • In children, hypothyroidism leads to profound disturbances of higher nervous activity, incomplete development of intellectual capacities.

    • In adults, iodine deficiency leads to mental inertia, lethargy, decreased mental ability, strength and a decrease in heart rate, «slagging».

  • At the same time inhibited the oxidation of cholesterol and its accumulation of atherogenic form that leads to early atherosclerosis, and in combination with disorders of the cardiovascular system -to myocardial infarction and stroke.

  • Iodine deficiency results in immune deficiency, increased risk of cancer, especially of the thyroid gland.

  • Nosological manifestation of iodine deficiency is endemic goiter
