What is Hypericin?
Hypericin is an anthraquinone derivative belonging to the class of naphthodianthrone compounds. In nature, it is one of the main active compounds isolated from, Hypericum (Saint John’s wort).
Due to its polyphenolic structure, it exhibits quite a range of biological activities like:
- Non-specific kinase inhibition
- Increasing levels of dopamine
Interestingly, Hypericin exhibits high anti-depressant activity. Scientists currently believe that it is due to the inhibition of the reabsorption of various neurotransmitters.
Also, due to chromophoric properties and its tendency to accumulate in cancer tissue when ingested over threshold levels, Hypericin is used as an indicator of cancer tissue.
