Avalon offers a strong extract of Sceletium Tortuosum (Kanna), 10 times stronger than the dried herb. Kanna originates from South Africa, where it has been used for more than a century for it's mood-enhancing properties.*
Traditionally Kanna was chewed and the saliva swallowed, but the African Bushmen tribes were also known to inhale it as a snuff or to smoke it, sometimes with the addition of other herbs. Dosage for one tea cup is recommended at one tenth of the dosage for the regular dried herb - 20 mg.
Sceletium Tortuosum should not be combined with other SSRI's (Seroxat, Prozac) or Mono Oxidase Inhibitors (MAO-I), such as Syrian Rue (Peganum harmala), Banisteriopsis Caapi and certain anti-depressants.
