Remotiv is advertised as a natural remedy designed to help reduce the common symptoms of nervous tension, mild anxiety, irritability, and stress. The company behind this formula is called Flordis Natural Medicines, and is an Australian manufacturer with an international activity. They state to produce the highest quality products due to their dedication in using the latest technological and medical findings.
Remotiv is advertised to include an extract of St John’s wort that has been most commonly used within scientific research so far. The active substance is a well-known traditional remedy against mood related disorders caused by stress. Its soothing qualities seem to be supported by more recent medical research, but the drug interactions between the plant and other drugs should not be ignored. The formula is offered for adults over 18 years old, excepting those who already take certain medication (including antidepressants, immunosuppressants, anticonvulsants, hormonal medication, Warfarin, or Digoxin).
The scientific studies involving this product include over 2,000 patients. A long-term study (1 year) has also been conducted in order to determine the effects of Remotiv for longer periods of time. This study shows continuous improvements of the symptoms associated with common mood disorders with minimum side effects (gastrointestinal distress mostly).
Remotiv contains the following ingredients: St John’s wort
St. John’s wort is a traditional remedy used to treat mild depression and anxiety symptoms. The herb has been very popular among alternative medicine practitioners, but for a long time, modern medicine completely ignored the plant’s therapeutic effects. In more recent years, scientists and researchers started to show increasingly more interest in natural remedies such as herbal based products.
St John’s wort is one of the most popular and well-researched such remedy believed to owe its effectiveness to a number of chemicals that have the ability to increase the levels of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. The compound found in this plant help in the synthesis of Serotonin, Norepinephrine, and Dopamine, three of the major brain chemicals that influence mood. Although its supervised use as a mild antidepressant (associated with other medication or as a stand-alone treatment) is supported by current medical research, a unanimous opinion regarding its safety has not been issued. The main concern involves the numerous drug interactions of the plant extract which makes it potentially dangerous if used without the consent of a specialized practitioner.
Other uses of product containing this extract include the treatments of various health issues such as: inflammation, muscle pain, burns, bruises, and scrapes, wounds, bug bites, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, hepatitis, etc. Most of these uses have not been validated by scientific evidence.
For maximum benefits the suggested dose of Remotiv is 2 tablets per day for a minimum period of 4-6 weeks. The side effects reported include restlessness, irritability, fatigue, dizziness, skin rash, stomach discomfort, and anxiety. Very high doses may cause severe reactions when sun exposure occurs. For complete information about the potential side effects it is best to consult a healthcare practitioner.

Remotiv formula is presented as one of the most potent and safe formula designed as a natural antidepressant. It has the major advantage of being clinically researched and thus scientifically shown to be beneficial in alleviating the symptoms for which it is recommended.
More so, the product is advertised to include a very small percent of Hyperforin- the substance considered responsible for the plant’s numerous drug interactions. However, Remotiv is not recommended in combination with other medication (indicated by the manufacturer).
Although the formula is clinically proven, it does not enjoy the support of consumers. Testimonials about this formula are unavailable at the moment of this review.
In conclusion, this may prove to be one of the safest natural remedy against mild anxiety and nervous tension, but the safety of the formula varies depending on each individual medical history and other medication he might be on.
