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.

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

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.

Helps!!! This is great, helps with sleep and improved mood.

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.

This is a good light stress and anxiety remedy. It helps to keep you focused and calm during the day.

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.

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

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.

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.

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
