St James, dittos on European herbs. I think they're the only ones we can trust for consistency. And in any effort to duplicate a clinical study those are the ones actually used. Kira is the USA brand of LI160, the formula used in those studies, and manufactured by the very company. I requested email info from them a month ago. Their response was in line with what we've already discussed. That St Johns has many active components. Many of them still unknown. They confirmed that hyperforin is a major player, but that it alone is questionable without all the other components of LI160 working in synergy.

After reading your last post it reminded me of something I forgot. That most of the MAOI in St Johns is in the raw herb. Thus the possible cheese reaction when using any of the brands other than LI160. Especially the ones that have raw herb mixed in with the extract. I'm very sensitive to tinnitus. Kira doesn't give me much problem. I did try a brand once that had raw herb mixed in, and it made my tinnitus real bad. So there might be something to that.

Thanks much by the way for the website tip.
