Description: Sceletium Tortuosum is a South African plant with a rich history of traditional medicinal use. The use of sceletium can be traced back to 1662 .The native Khoe & San people of South Africa would pick the plant, ferment and then dry it. Sceletium was then eaten used as snuff or smoked to produce the desired effect. Sceletium has been extensively studied both locally and internationally for its potential benefits in treating various mental conditions. Results have been positive confirming both efficacy and safety. Sceletium has been indicated for the treatment of anxiety disorder, PTSD, moderate depression, mental fatigue and addiction. To date Research on the Sceletium plant has been focused primarily on just 11 Alkaloids of interest within the 32 currently identified as “active”. The 3 major alkaloids mesembrine, mesembranol and mesembrenone are believed to be the alkaloids responsible for the psychotropic effect experienced through the use of the plant. Research concluded in 2015 at the University of Stellenbosch has classified the major alkaloid Mesembrine as Monoamine Releasing Agent of the Selective Type with selectivity being 5-HT serotonin. One of the major benefits of sceletium is safety. No adverse events have been reported during studies nor is there a believed risk for addiction. The onset of action is rapid with the effects being felt soon after oral ingestion. With the alarming increase of mental health conditions related to stress and a modern lifestyle sceletium offers a safe and effective solution for those looking for improved mood and reduced anxiety both quickly and safely.
