If I were you I'd buy the powdered herbs from your health food store or better yet find an online herb store that sells in bulk. Then buy the herbs by the pound instead of capsules.
[Example: Valerian $5-9.00, Kava $ 14.00, St. John's $5.00]
Use a half teaspoon mixed in juice. You can also cover your bases and mix equal parts of all three herbs together and then take 1/2 teaspoon from your mix. Depending on how you feel, take 2 to 3 times a day.
Most companies that sell herbs in bulk sell good fresh herbs of good quality, unlike many herb companies that sell capsules.
However it does take some getting use to, taking your herbs this way. If after tring the herbs this way, you find they work well for you, but find you don't like the taste. For a few dollars more you can buy a capsule
machine $7- 14.00 and capsules for $7.00
You'll find that for this small investment will turn into gret savings over buying brand capsules.
