Just a bit of history...."Wort means 'a plant, herb, or vegetable'. It usually refers to ones that are used for medicinal purposes. The word, which was once used freely, now only occurs as the final element in compounds, of which St.-John's-wort is perhaps the most well known, thanks to its recent resurgence as a treatment for depression. Some other wort compounds are colewort, figwort, liverwort, milkwort, and spleenwort."
I have seen it used, but as with any herb...the expiration date is crutial. Plants lose their restorative properties even if the volatile oils are still present. Since physiology plays a key role in what medicinally works, you'd have to play guinea pig. I do know that for me, B-complex helps.
