We lead increasingly stressful lives these days and stress is one of those things that we really need to manage before it does damage.

Making sure you have a healthy, well rested, balanced brain is an essential aim of the modern human being.
Sceletium is a traditional herbal medicine that has been used for centuries as a natural sedative and mood enhancer. Sceletium may also be helpful for improving concentration and reducing social anxiety.
The key ingredient in this product is Sceletium, which has been proven to reduce anxiety, particularly social anxiety, to enhance cognition (think more clearly, process information more clearly) and to help improve sleeping patterns. Sceletium is the kind of herb you can supplement every day or as and whenever you need it. It’s an excellent tonic for insomnia, it helps your brain to perform better and reduces anxiety so it’s a general performance enhancer for those who want their brains to function at a higher level.
Take one or two capsules before bed to allow your brain to improve serotonin levels whilst you sleep. You can also use it during the day to help calm the nerves and improve the clarity of your thinking. If you’re using it as a treatment for anxiety or ADHD then make sure you combine it with good essential fatty acids (Omega 3,6 and 9), amino acids and B-Vitamins.
San wisdom was utilised in the preparation of the Afrigetics Stress and Anxiety Remedy. This exceptional tonic uses the Bushman’s miracle drug and champion of the African apothecary; Sceletium tortuosum. This small creeping succulent was used as a mood-altering substance from prehistoric times. The dried plant material elevates mood, enhances mental cognition, aids in restful sleep and reduces social anxiety. One of the active ingredients, Mesembrine, has been found to be a potent serotonin uptake inhibitor, offering a glimpse into its application in treating anxiety and depression. Other herbs in this remedy include Baobab, known for its tryptophan-rich composition and its ability to nourish nerve endings.
