Sceletium Tortuosum is revered for its mood-enhancing effect, increasing alertness
which gently fades into calmness, offering relief from tension, stress and anxiety.
The mood-elevating action of Sceletium is caused by a number of alkaloids including
mesembrine, mesembrenol and tortuosamine. These interact with the brain’s dopamine
and serotonin receptors, also known as neurotransmitters, as a potent serotonin-uptake
inhibitor. As a serotonin–uptake inhibitor, the brain is made proficient in reclaiming
neurotransmitters from the neuron receptors to the originating nerves, thus keeping
more serotonin in circulation. Sceletium is known to have a balancing effect on other
feel-good neurotransmitters like dopamine, norepinephrine, and on adrenaline. Thus,
mesembrine allows the brain to function with reduced levels of serotonin, allowing
time for natural levels to build up. Sceletium is non- addictive, non hallucinogenic, and
no severe adverse effects have been documented.
