insert and Patient information:
tortuosum is traditionally used to elevate mood and to counteract anxiety,
stress and tension. It contains mesembrine and mesembrine-type alkaloids,
mesembrine is a potent serotonin-uptake inhibitor. Neurons in the brain
releases serotonin (a neurotransmitter) that allows a signal to transient
via it to the receiving neuron. It has been shown that in individuals suffering
from depression, stress and anxiety, serotonin is lacking. Mesembrine in
Sceletium tortuosum increases the serotonin levels in the neuron receptors
by acting as a serotonin-uptake inhibitor, thereby increasing the possibility
of signal transfer in neurons.
