Khwaja 1999, Kurth 1998, Mason 1999, Schempp 1999 Uses and Pharmacology Animal and human studies have elucidated the pharmacokinetic differences among the structurally similar components hypericin, pseudohypericin, and hyperforin.
Russo Time to peak plasma levels Cmax ranges from 30 minutes to 3 hours for pseudohypericin, from 4. John's wort range, 300 to 1,800 mg [approximately 0.
Hammer, Russo Steady-state levels of hypericin are reached at 4 days, with a prolonged plasma half-life of about 25 hours due to hypericin's high affinity for albumin and lipoprotein. Hyperforin exhibits linear pharmacokinetics at doses up to 600 mg, after which plasma levels tend to be lower than expected.
Russo St. John's wort, particularly hyperforin, has been shown in vitro and in vivo to inhibit monoamine oxidase type A MAO-A and MAO-B as well as the reuptake of norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin.
It has a strong affinity for GABA, glutamate, and adenosine receptors. Kummer, Markert, Pereira Downregulation of beta-adrenergic receptors has also been documented. Russo The major coactive constituents shown to mediate the broad-spectrum inhibition of neurotransmitter reuptake are hypericin, hyperforin, quercetin, and kaempferol.
