Kava is safe and effective in treating anxiety disorders and depression. L-tryptophan is as effective as imipramine in treating depression. Saffron may be of therapeutic benefit in the treatment of mild to moderate depression and has similar efficacy as the drug imipramine. St. John's Wort is as effective as Selective Serotoin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) in the treatment of Depressive Disorder, with a greater safety rating.
