Focuson Nootropic Ingredient: Sceletium Tortuosum | Information

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.

Sceletium is a recent newcomer to the western herbal market that has a long history of use in South African traditional medicine. The herb is used as a mild antidepressant and mood booster. Sceletium contains alkaloids that act as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), according to research published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology. This action affects the amount of bioavailable dopamine and serotonin, increasing pleasurable feelings and lessening anxiety, stress and tension.
