  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

      Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized St. John's Wort:

      I have suffered from moderate depression for the past couple years. On top of that I also have Seasonal Affective Disorder (winter blues). This product works just as well as the antidepressants I used to take without side effects (and that weird wired feeling some people get). I take about 1 capsule a day, sometimes if I have a busy/long day I'll take an extra one in the afternoon.

      I've been taking it for 3 weeks and started noticing a big difference after like 10 days. I no longer suffer from fatigue, I sleep better, I have more energy throughout the day, and I can focus a lot better on my work! This product is wonderful & works way better than the St. John's Wort supplements I bought at the super market. Plus you're paying for 200 capsules, that's more than half a year's supply!

        Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized St. John's Wort:

        I've been troubled by crazy dreams for years. By crazy, I mean someone always dies in my dream then I end up waking up feeling so depressed and that feeling could haunt me for days.
        I've taken this for a month, 2 caps/day. I didn't notice too big of a change until I was cut off from it for two days then those depressing dreams came back.
        When I'm on it, I still make a lot of dreams but none of that would be that depressing. Now I'm planning on start taking 3 caps/day.

        Comments about GNC HERBAL PLUS STANDARDIZED GNC Herbal Plus® Standardized St. John's Wort:

        I read comments around addressing sleep issues, which I have. I figured if I get some relief from these issues & improved mode; win-win. However, after taking this supplement for two weeks, I consistently experienced degraded sleep quality. It's definitely going back to the store.
