CONTEXT Hypericum perforatum L. (Guttiferae) appears as an alternative treatment to mild and moderate depression and been traditionally used as a health enhancer based on the phytochemicals hyperforin and hypericin. However, field grown medicinal plants show variable levels of phytopharmaceuticals depending on environmental conditions. Elicitation is a good strategy to trigger secondary metabolism. OBJECTIVE This study explored the ability of 6 rhizobacterial strains to trigger secondary… CONTINUE READING
