Found online at, MVG provides consumers free information on vitamins and supplements as well as resources, news, advice and content from medical professionals on more than 650 health concerns and illnesses.

“Our information comes from experts in the fields of medicine, pharmacy, nursing, naturopathic and public health and from over 500 prominent medical journals,” said MVG CEO Sam Knoll. “By providing information on depression in a clear and easy-to-use way, we are helping people research and understand alternatives to traditional depression medications, so they can make informed decisions about depression treatments.”

The MVG section on depression, found at, offers a checklist rating the effectiveness of nutritional supplements and herbs to help treat depression, helpful dietary and lifestyle changes, and several holistic approaches that may be helpful.

- St. John’s Wort - 600 to 1,200 mg a day of a standardized extract (containing of 0.3 percent hypericin) to help with mild to moderate depression

- Exercise at least three hours a week (or 30 minutes a day) to boost the body’s natural mood-enhancing compounds (endorphins)
