Hypericum perforatum, also called perforate St. John’s-wort, is a plant species of the family Hypericaceae. The plant’s synonyms include Hypericum assurgens, Hypericum lineolatum, and Hypericum marylandicum. Other common names for the plant include St. John’s wort and common St. John’s wort. Hypericum perforatum has its origins in several parts of Asia and Europe. The plant has, however, quickly spread to the temperate regions of the world. Hypericum perforatum is a herbaceous plant species that can grow to a height of 100 cm. The plant’s stem is reddish and has leaf scars on its surface. The leaves are narrow, oblong, and lack a stalk. Moreover, each leaf is yellowish-green and has translucent dots on its surface. The dots are made up of small glandular tissue. Flowers are yellow with visible black dots on their surface. The flowers have a diameter of 2.5 cm and blossom in cymes on the branches. The plant’s seeds are coarse, shiny and black. Hypericum perforatum has for many years been a source of traditional medicine for various communities around the world. So much so that the plant was commonly used as a medicine in classical antiquity. A reddish extract present in the plant’s flowers and seeds is used for the treatment of wounds and burns. The plant is also the subject of an investigation by the pharmacological industry for its viability as a source of anti-depressant medicine. Several tests indicate that the plant has positive effects but the variability of the results and the deficiency of supporting evidence cast doubts over its efficacy. Hypericum perforatum is, however, sold as a supplement to treat mild cases of depression in children and teens. An advantage of the supplement is that it has fewer side-effects compared to antidepressants. Hypericum perforatum is considered an invasive species in over 20 countries around the globe.
