Hypericum perforatum

Clinically, St. John's wort is prized as a nervine and antidepressant, so much so that in Germany, where St. John's wort is approved for treatment of depression and anxiety, it is prescribed 20 times more often than Prozac.

St. John's wort is sometimes used for incontinence in children. St. John's wort has anti-retroviral properties with no side effects. Some people use St. John's wort to reduce the effects of prescription medications. Externally, it is used as an ointment or poultice for ulcers, tumors, and nerve pain.
