BUST through stress with kanna extract

SLASH stress and anxiety with this ‘bushman’s chew’

You might generally consider yourself cool as a cucumber

But there are some things that would stress ANYONE out… no matter how “chilled out” you might be under regular circumstances!

And when something triggers those alarm bells to go off…

You need a way to promote a sense of wellbeing… maybe just enough to get you through until things settle down.

Fortunately, there’s an herbal remedy that can help BALANCE your stress response.

It’s been used by South African hunters for its MIND-CALMING properties — for hundreds of years.

And now, scientists have figured out the BEST way to deliver its benefits to you.

Is it possible that it could help you feel more SERENE than you have in years?

Don’t worry, it won’t DULL your brain

In fact, it could help improve your ability to stay focused and pay attention!

Because when it matters most, you still want to stay “in the zone.”

Remain CALM in the face of common anxiety triggers

Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum) is a flowering plant native to the South African bush – where GENERATIONS of native tribesmen known as the San have relied on the plant to help them survive their harsh environment.

They knew that if they chewed on it, it could lower their stress levels after a long, strenuous day of hunting and gathering.

And it could ease tension and anxiety for you, too.

Now, a little stress is actually good for us – it sounds the “danger! danger!” alarm when something bad is coming our way.

But when your stress levels become imbalanced… and excessive stress takes over… it can compromise your ability to make decisions.

That’s why to stay sharp… you’ve got to keep your stress in check.

In one study, kanna improved folks’ ability to focus and pay attention by as much as 80% — after just 3 weeks of taking it.

What would you do if you had nearly TWICE the ability to stay “dialed in”… maybe even ALL DAY LONG?

A compound in kanna called mesembrine  appears to work by helping to “free up” the amount of the neurotransmitter serotonin that your brain has access to.

Serotonin is known as the “happy hormone”…

And that’s why several “mood meds” zero in on that exact same target!

Folks don’t just FEEL better after taking kanna…

Their brains actually WORK differently!

In 2013, researchers used MRI scans  to observe activity changes in the “fight or flight” center of the brain (a.k.a. the amygdala) — and after just ONE DOSE of a special form of kanna.

Instead of “lighting up” in response to a potential threat… that “red alert” part of the brain was actually quiet and CALM.

And those “circuitry” changes were visible within just 2 HOURS of taking kanna.

With fast results like this, it’s easy to wonder why this isn’t being shouted from the rooftops.

After all, if kanna REALLY works so well… why doesn’t your doctor know about it?

Well, the Big Pharmaceutical companies can’t make any money off kanna – because it’s natural.

So it’s like they PRETEND kanna doesn’t exist!

And if pharma reps aren’t telling your doc about kanna… it’s almost like it DOESN’T actually exist.

But now, you know better.

Look for the exact same form used in the clinical studies — a patented, standardized kanna extract called Zembrin.

The FDA has granted it Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) status

So, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding the standardized dose of it (25 mg) on its own… or in brain- and mood-boosting supplements… at your local health food store or online.
