People suffering from depression can benefit from Mesembrine, because it enables the brain to work with lower levels of serotonin, allowing natural levels to rebuild.
A number of psychiatrists, psychologists and doctors have achieved excellent results by treating mild to moderate depression and states of anxiety with Sceletium capsules and tablets. Even the lay public can use it to enhance the mood and to alleviate tension and stress.
Kanna has, when chewed in sufficient dosage, an anesthetic effect in the mouth, similar to Kava and is used as a numbing remedy in preparation for tooth extractions. Or, in smaller doses for children with colic. Tea made from Sceletium has a positive effect on alcoholics and can disaccustom them from alcohol.
