Dr Boxall’s Sceletium with 5HTP & Vitamin B6 225mg (60 Caps)
Dr Boxall’s Sceletium with 5HTP & Vitamin B6 contains Sceletium Tortuosum, which is one of nature’s strongest and most popular natural stress regulators and mood enhancers. The mood-elevating action of Sceletium is caused by a number of alkaloids including mesembrine, mesembrenol and tortuosamine. These alkaloids interact with the brain’s dopamine and serotonin receptors, also known as neurotransmitters, as a potent serotonin-uptake inhibitor which causes the brain to become more proficient in reclaiming neurotransmitters from the neuron receptors to the originating nerves, thus keeping more serotonin in circulation.
Sceletium is known to have a balancing effect on other feel-good neurotransmitters like dopamine, norepinephrine, and on adrenaline. Thus, mesembrine allows the brain to function with reduced levels of serotonin, allowing time for natural levels to build up with coping mechanisms. Sceletium is non-addictive, non-hallucinogenic, and no severe adverse effects have been documented.
Griffonia Seed Extract is a natural supplement which is taken from the extract of the Griffonia Simplicifolia plant. While supplementing with tryptophan can be moderately effective, it is even better to use 5-HTP which is converted to Serotonin at a faster rate than tryptophan itself. 5-HTP is actually an intermediary in the production of Serotonin, which is believed to help regulate mood and social behaviour, appetite and digestion, sleep, memory, and sexual desire and function, so it avoids some of the rate-limiting factors that regulate how much tryptophan is taken up by the brain. Griffonia is one of a small number of natural sources for 5-HTP which is why this supplement has become so popular.
Vitamin B6, also known as Pyridoxine, is involved in making the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain. This vitamin also helps to protect brain cells by maintaining the layer known as the myelin sheath that surrounds your neurons.
