4 major alkaloids :
mesembrine, mesembrenone, mesembrenol, mesembranol

  • Highly variable total alkaloid content 0.05 – 2.3%
  • Highly variable alkaloid composition (eg. mesembrine may be 0-90% of total alkaloids)

Standardized to defined HPLC profile

  • Mesembrenol + Mesembrenone NLT
  • 70% of total alkaloid Mesembrine NMR
  • 20% of total alkaloid Mesembranol : present

Mechanism Of Action

Greater than 80% inhibition of radioligandbinding:

  • PDE4
  • GABA
  • PDE3
  • 5-HT transporter (SERT)
  • CCK1
  • δ2-opioid
