Herbal Medi Care produces a large variety of herbal dietary supplements obtained from 100% pure natural herbal ingredients with no fillers, additives or animal by-products. All ingredients used to create these formulations are certified organic or wild harvested. The company has been established in 1995 and enjoys a good reputation among consumers.
Herbal Medi Care Mood Aid contains the following ingredients: St. John’s Wort, Ginkgo Biloba, Skullcap, Valerian Root, Gotu Kola, Black Cohosh, Motherwort, and Chamomile.
The first ingredient listed on the label of Mood Aid is St. John’s Wort. The plant is tremendously popular among medicine producers as well as patients for a variety of health boosting benefits. Its anti-inflammatory and healing properties have lead to its medicinal use since many centuries ago. Today, its most frequent use is linked to depression, anxiety and mood swings.
Its effectiveness is comparable with standard antidepressants, even though it is not fully understood how it works. Adverse effects are lower than with conventional antidepressants, however the lack of clinical research involving St. John’s Wort makes it hard to know the full range of potential side effects and drug interactions. Known precautions are linked to the plant’s ability to increase the risk of photo sensitivity, and the risk of serotonin syndrome. Unwanted side effects may include altered menstrual flow, bleeding, unwanted pregnancies, and hormone level changes.
Ginkgo Biloba, the second ingredient on the list of Mood Aid ingredients is just as popular as the first. And just like St.John’s Wort, it too has been therapeutically used for centuries. Several research studies on Ginkgo Biloba have looked into its ability to assist with conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, depression, macular degeneration (a condition of the eye), cerebral atherosclerosis, short-term memory loss, dementia, menopause, peripheral vascular disease, vascular diseases, or vertigo. Ginkgo Biloba appears to work by improving peripheral blood flow, and to possess antioxidant effects.
Skullcap is another multi-valent plant with potent sedative, nervine, tonic, and antispasmodic benefits. The plant may help relieve anxiety and stress and strengthen and support the nervous system.
