Sutherlandia frutescens is regarded as the most profound and multi-purpose of the medicinal plants in Southern Africa. It has enjoyed a long history of use in Southern Africa. Sutherlandia powerfully assists the body to mobilize its own resources to cope with physical and mental stresses, and it is therefore correctly speaking, an adaptogen. In fact Sutherlandia is the African adaptogen par excellence. It is an herb with a profound effect on the body-mind-energy system, maintaining and optimizing physical, mental and emotional wellness, and it is as if Nature has combined in Africa, in a single plant, the immune stimulating benefits of Echinacea, the anxiolytic and anti-depressant effects of Hypericum and the energy of Panax Ginseng.
