A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of Hypericum perforatum on symptoms of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS). Women who remained eligible after three screening cycles (n = 36) underwent a two-cycle placebo run-in phase. They were then randomly assigned to receive Hypericum perforatum tablets 900 mg/day (extract ratio 3-6:1, standardized to 0.18% hypericin; 3.38% hyperforin) or identical placebo tablets for two menstrual cycles. After a placebo-treated washout cycle, the women crossed over to receive placebo or Hypericum perforatum for two additional cycles. Hypericum perforatum was statistically superior to placebo in improving physical and behavioural symptoms of PMS (6). Participants took either one St. John’s Wort tablet containing 300 mg extract standardized to 0.3% hypericin or one placebo tablet, three times a day. After 12 weeks of treatment with ethanolic St. John's Wort extract or placebo, a nonsignificant difference favoring the St. John's Wort group was observed in the daily hot flash frequency and the hot flash score. After 3 months of treatment, compared with the placebo group, women in the St. John's Wort group reported significantly better menopause-specific quality of life and significantly fewer sleep problems (7).
