Kanna Powder (Sceletium Tortuosum) Benefits

Clinical research has identified the mechanisms on the central nervous system (CNS) by Kanna powder to contain the blockade of the serotonin (5-HT) transporter and selective inhibition of the phosphodiesterase-4 (PDE4) enzyme. Since 5-HT reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are widely used for the treatment of anxiety disorders and depression, Kanna powder extract, hence, is famously used to enhance moods and euphoric states of mind in users.

Other benefits of Kanna powder are:

  • Helps with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Assists with social phobia and irritability.
  • Improves cognitive and mental health.
  • Decreases anxiety, stress, and tension.
  • Act as a strong anti-inflammatory and anticancer herb due to the presence of alkaloids.
