Are You Ready For A New Mood?

Do you need an attitude adjustment or know someone who does? It’s safe to say that we all have our ups and downs…it’s completely natural. But what about having that bad day feeling more often than what you’re comfortable with?

Mild depression, situational depression, stress, anxiety, irritability, lethargy, low energy and not feeling excited about anything. Does this sound like you or someone you know? You’re not alone.

Over 20 million Americans, roughly 9.5 percent of the U.S population over 18 have some type of ongoing mood disorder. For many, relief comes from prescription medicine that has a high potential for abuse and a frightening list of possible side effects that sound worse than the original symptoms.

We’ve all seen and heard the television commercials about the various drugs for anxiety and depression, with a good portion of airtime devoted to disclosing the known possible side effects. Insomnia, daytime drowsiness, weight gain, fatigue, sexual dysfunction, constipation, dry mouth, dizziness, irritability, agitation, anxiety and suicide are all associated with antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs.

With over 20 million Americans affected by mood disorders in some way, “Big Pharma” is cashing in big time. For some sufferers, prescription meds are necessary and well managed. For others who decide the risk/reward ratio isn’t worth the side effects and for those who seek a more natural approach, there may be hope in the form of an abundant and sustainable medicinal succulent plant from South Africa.

Sceletium Tortuosum; also known as Kanna or Kougoed.

The plant is native to South Africa and has a long history of use for hundreds of years by the South African tribes as a natural medicine. Traditionally the plant was used by indigenous people to produce euphoria, mood enhancement and relaxation. The harvested plant was prepared through fermentation of theSceletium Zen Boost leaves and roots. Once prepared, Kanna was chewed to produce the desired effects.

Daily use of Sceletium may help:  

  • Decrease tension
  • Reduce stress
  • Relieve anxiety
  • Elevate mood
  • Promote feelings of happiness
  • Increase awareness
  • Increase energy

Are you ready to feel better? Why not try a natural approach to a better mood, less stress and maybe a break from feeling down?
