Remotiv has been studied in over 2000 patients, including a one year study that showed it to be well tolerated with continued improvement of symptoms during this time.4 In clinical trials, Remotiv has been very well tolerated and resulted in very few side effects, predominantly gastrointestinal upsets.

If you are currently taking prescription medication, it is important to talk with a healthcare professional before starting Remotiv. St John’s wort affects the way many prescription medicines work, including the oral contraceptive pill. The specific extract of St John’s wort used in Remotiv (Ze 117) contains consistently low levels (<1%) of the constituent hyperforin,5 which is considered possibly responsible for the interaction between some St John’s wort products and certain medications.
- Remotiv tablets contain a specific extract of St John’s wort that is manufactured in Switzerland under unique production methods, ensuring consistently high quality.
- Clinical trials have been conducted using the same extract that is found in Remotiv (Ze 117).
- The actual extract is very important for natural medicine as there can be great variance between products, even if they appear to use the same active ingredients, due to the plant that is used, growing methods, harvesting processes and manufacturing methods.
- The outcomes of clinical studies for natural medicines should therefore only apply to the exact product that has been examined.
