  • What kind of mood are we talking about, lol? St. John's Wart is supposed to help improve your mood but I'm not sure if that's the kind of "mood" you mean.

  • In addition to any herbs like St. John's Wort, make sure you're getting plenty of B vitamins and Omega 3's - take a B complex and fish or flax oil daily. It really helps. Make sure you're also getting some exercise.

  • St Johns Wort causes sensitivity to sunlight, if you live in a sunny climate,it will bother you...Kava Kava is very relaxing and so is Passionflower. Don't use Kava Kava if you have any liver conditions such as hepatitus or if you have a history of alcohol abuse..(just saying) Kava Kava is stronger than Passionflower but you could just take big doses of Passionflower instead...it's great, they both are...they brought me out of my ptsd...Good luck~!
