Sceletium Tortuosm: To aid brain function, cognition and support mood
Sceletium Tortuosum has a long history of traditional use as a masticatory and medicine by the San and Khoikhoi people of southern parts of Africa. We use an extract which has been specifically developed for Level Up and contains the highest ever recorded levels of alkaloid constituents. This translates to being a very powerful and well-balanced PDE4 inhibitor which is scientifically proven to help block the degradative action of PDE4 on cAMP. People commonly use this when they want a natural alternative for helping to boost mood when feeling down and can also have a calming effect.
