Product Description - African Red Tea Imports Sceletium Tortuosum 50 g Powder
The proprietary and patented Zembrin extract used in Organic African Red Tea Sceletium Tortuosum (also known as Kanna, Channa, and Kougoed) safely supports a sense of alert serenity. It is traditionally used to relax the mind, reduce stress, and promote healthy sleep. Sceletium Tortuosum has been used for millennia and its use has been documented for 300 years.
Sceletium tortuosum is a succulent plant native to South Africa. The indigenous people have used the herb as a mood enhancer, relaxant, and empathogen for centuries. They have also used it for gastrointestinal and respiratory ailments, colic, and to help combat addictions to drugs and alcohol. The most common uses of sceletium tortuosum were to help with endurance and to clear the mind to help with thinking. It has also been used as an appetite suppressant.
Modern doctors, psychologists, and psychiatrists have been successful in using sceletium tortuosum for:
- Mood enhancement
- Lessen fatigue
- PMS stress reduction
- Increased energy and endurance
- Enhance cognitive abilities
- Improved mental focus and clarity
- Promotes restful sleep
- No severe adverse effects have been documented
The Zembrin extract contains mesembrine, mesembrenol, and tortuosamine which are the main alkaloids that interact with the brain's dopamine and serotonin receptors and causes the mood enhancement. The U.S. Patent Office confirmed it a serotonin re-uptake inhibitor (SRI) which regulates the most important neurotransmitter in the brain.
The Zembrin extract is a proprietary standardized Sceletium extract. A few of the unique properties are:
Zembrin is a standardized extract of cultivated elite plant material. Zembrin has recognized mechanisms of action involved in feelings of relaxation, calm and stress reduction. The activities have been demonstrated for the whole extract and also for the isolated key markers present in the extract, providing a rationale for the standardization to selected markers.
The quality and standardization of Zembrin is guaranteed by carefully controlled horticulture using proprietary seeds and vegetative cuttings of a select chemotype, cultivated to Global-GAP. Absolutely no wild crafting. The growing and harvesting on farms employs rural folk in these areas. Standard operating procedures are followed for the harvesting, washing, as well as for the method, duration and temperature of drying of the plant material. Key marker compounds are quantified in the raw material and extract on an ongoing basis to ensure the integrity of the phytochemical profile during production, and to determine shelf-life. Records are kept to ensure complete traceability from seed to extract.
In vitro, in vivo, and Phase-1 safety studies of Zembrin in healthy human volunteers have found no evidence of toxicity. A double-blind placebo-controlled Phase 1 clinical trial on two doses of Zembrin demonstrated good tolerance over the 3 months studied. There were no significant adverse events in the active group, and there were no differences between active and placebo groups in vital signs, blood biochemistry and urinalysis.
Suggested Use: ¼ teaspoon twice daily or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
