Before I decided to go veg, I started taking St. John's Wort to help with my mental and emotional problems. (It helped a lot by the way, thanks for asking.
) But I read the ingredients and found out they have gelatin in them.
Ewwww. I'm pretty grossed out.

Anyway, since not taking them isn't an option at this point, I was wondering if anyone had a good veg* herbal supplement link they'd like to share, in case I need to buy more after this supply runs out.

Thanks,

~NS~

Probably the capsules are gel-caps, which are made from gelatin. You can get vegetarian gel-caps from Natural Foods Stores, and I am sure that they will have St. John's Wort, since it is fairly common.

There are several St.John's Wort formulas that are in veggie caps, just take a look around in a health food store. The only brand I can think of off the top of my head is Eclectic Herbs.

How do you know which parts are good to use? Any books or sites you could recommend? (I know nothing about herbs or gardening, but I'm interested nonetheless.
)

(Edited for grammar.)
