Talk To Your Doctor About Supplements.

St. John’s wort and SAMe have both been found to be beneficial treatments for mild to moderate depression, and a few studies have shown these supplements are as effective as some prescription anti-depressant medications. Both compounds work by altering neurotransmitter activity in the brain, which impacts mood. However, just because these supplements are “natural” doesn’t necessarily mean they’re safe for everyone, and St. John’s wort in particular can have serious side effects and interactions with common medications (for example, it can make birth control less effective). With that in mind, always speak with your physician before taking a new supplement.
