Ok, what you want to look for is the hypericin and hyperforin content. If both are not listed it isn't a worthwhile product IMO. Eclectic Ins. has a freeze dried St. Johns Wort that I highly recommend.

Yes, get pills with standarized hypericin and hyperforin content, packaging should tell.

And just to add (although I'm by no means a St. John's Wort expert), I see them pretty much everywhere, supermarkets, drugstores, etc. You shouldn't have to order them online.

I can personally vouch for the purity and efficacy of these particular brands. I've had friends who used to work for one of these companies and they tell me the purity is top notch. There are others too but these I know are high quality for sure.

Liquid and powder capsules are best. Hard tablets are rarely any good for any kind of supplement.

The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate

My tabs contain 500ug of hypercins in a 170mg tablet.

Why would this being a powder be any more efficient as a supplement?

The problem with many standardised products is that the hyperforin has been removed. Hyperforin my be as or more important in the treatment of depression as is hypericin.
