Feeling blue? Sceletium is a little plant miracle the San have known about for thousands of years that targets a number one health issue – stress and depression. It’s been clinically found to act as a powerful natural serotonin-reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), increasing the total amount of serotonin available to your brain. This results in a more balanced, happy mood and better sleep if you suffer from insomnia, as well as all the knock-on effects of feeling happier. Afrigetics Sceletium Tortuosum is a standardised extract from organically grown Sceletium made using solvent-free ultrasonic technology and then freeze dried for maxumim potency.

This product unfairly labels their product as a 300mg sceletium capsule when in fact the capsules only contain 150mg of sceletium. I feel like this is a blatant attempt at trying to cheat consumers into buying a product that is claiming to be double the strength than it actually is.

Great mood lifter.
28/01/2021, By Jasper
This stuff is beautiful. Lifts my mood regardless of whether I skip a few days, and gives me a really great all day energy boost.

A definite mood and energy enhancer.

these really help lessen those anxious flutters

I have been taking these capsules for a few months now and feel that, in spite of being under enormous stress, I've coped better than normal. Would recommend.

This works well
31/07/2020, By Careena
I gave this three stars not because it's bad, but because I'm still on the fence about whether or not this actually works. I don't take it during the day, but I do take a capsule at night before bed. Does it help me to sleep? Maybe. Having said that, the BELIEF that it helps is half the battle. I'm likely to continue to buy it anyway. :)

Assisting with insomnia.
02/07/2020, By Jenna-Leigh
I genuinely feel much happier and more lighthearted on this. I have been going through an incredibly stressful time in my life at the moment and this has helped me more than SSRIs did back in the day with lesser stressful situations. Would highly recommend.

Nice product

Have taken this product for a month now and can definitely recommend. It’s got a very mild effect and one can barely feel it until you don’t take it and realize that they do in fact help to lessen anxiety and the ability to handle stressful situations.
17/04/2020, By Bradley
Definitely a great little mood booster for those tough days
21/02/2020, By Carmelita
Having been on allopathic anti-anxitey meds before, using this product definitely didn't have the same effect. I do believe that I felt slightly less anxious. I'll use up what I bought, but don't know if I'll buy this again.

I am a work from home mom of 4 and under a tremendous amount of pressure. I find this just helps me focus on my day without that constant cloud of anxiety. I also give this to my Grade 11 and Grade 12 daughters. It has definitely helped them cope better at school and get a better night's sleep.

this product really helps my daughter and I with anxiety
13/11/2019, By Liz
This product has helped me enormously. I use it to help me fall asleep at night and within 5 minutes I’m sleeping soundly. I’ve also noticed a substantial improvement in my happiness levels as well as a decrease in anxiety since I’ve been using this product. I’ll definitely continue to order this.

Amazing stuff, absolutely great for a lift up/mood improvement. I take 2 capsules in the morning but I empty them under my tongue. Swirl around for a minute or so and carry on with my day. In a matter of minutes I'm feeling uplifted, happy, and ready to tackle my day. Highly recommend.
13/06/2019, By Ashleigh
Helps!!! This is great, helps with sleep and improved mood.
30/03/2019, By Johan
Taking them for bed really improved the quality of my sleep - rested out when I wake up! I am not sure how effective it is for stress as I have not taken it during the day, but the side-effect of good quality sleep is a better ability to deal with stressors - so still a win! I can recommend this product.
11/03/2019, By Minni
This is a good light stress and anxiety remedy. It helps to keep you focused and calm during the day.
08/01/2019, By Shannon
Been on this for a couple months ... done nothing for my mood but helped my stomach a bit. My friend has tried it a at the same time with the same results.
17/12/2018, By Janine
Having suffered anxiety and panic attacks my entire life, I have obviously tried every product out there- from pharmaceuticals to natural products and therapies, and none have provided the results that Sceletium has. I drink one every morning and there is a definite change in the frequencies of my panic attacks. This brand is the best one I have come across, and I swear by its powerful aid in managing panic and anxiety attacks
07/12/2018, By Bronwen
I am so glad I found this product. It is a mild antidepressant, and really helps with stress relief. I also find my focus is better. This is the strongest of three strengths I bought, and I use this one on days when I find the stress overwhelming. I recommend finding the right strength for your needs.
07/08/2018, By Rebecca
I have been taking it for several days now and I feel so much more relaxed and euphoric than I did before! I feel like I am my normal happy self again! I have been suffering from increasingly high levels of anxiety for about a year and I finally decided to do something about it but I wanted to try out natural remedies before going to a psychiatrist and being prescribed addicting chemical medication. And I have to say I am really surprised at how well it's working! It feels like the cloud of negativity that was constantly hovering over me has magically disappeared! Amazing product, thank Faithful to Nature!!

So far so good. On the first day it seemed to calm anxiety and stress in a work situation.

Works really well and can replace SSRI's. Increased energy, better sleep, stabilises mood swings and combats depression. Works fast, within two days you can feel they are working.
29/10/2017, By kim
I used these capsules and felt the effects within two days. I stopped SSRI's 6 months prior and found i needed to take something for my chemical imbalances. These tabs are the right dosage to be effective. Very effective , my mood is stable, i don't get tired in fact my energy has increased and my sleep has improved
