The Zembrin extract contains mesembrine, mesembrenol, and tortuosamine which are the main alkaloids that interact with the brain's dopamine and serotonin receptors and causes the mood enhancement. The U.S. Patent Office confirmed it a serotonin re-uptake inhibitor (SRI) which regulates the most important neurotransmitter in the brain.

- has self-affirmed Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS) status in USA.

- is patented, with granted patents and new patent applications.

Zembrin is a standardized extract of cultivated elite plant material. Zembrin has recognized mechanisms of action involved in feelings of relaxation, calm and stress reduction. The activities have been demonstrated for the whole extract and also for the isolated key markers present in the extract, providing a rationale for the standardization to selected markers.
The quality and standardization of Zembrin is guaranteed by carefully controlled horticulture using proprietary seeds and vegetative cuttings of a select chemotype, cultivated to Global-GAP. Absolutely no wild crafting. The growing and harvesting on farms employs rural folk in these areas. Standard operating procedures are followed for the harvesting, washing, as well as for the method, duration and temperature of drying of the plant material. Key marker compounds are quantified in the raw material and extract on an ongoing basis to ensure the integrity of the phytochemical profile during production, and to determine shelf-life. Records are kept to ensure complete traceability from seed to extract.
In vitro, in vivo, and Phase-1 safety studies of Zembrin in healthy human volunteers have found no evidence of toxicity. A double-blind placebo-controlled Phase 1 clinical trial on two doses of Zembrin demonstrated good tolerability over the 3 months studied. There were no significant adverse events in the active group, and there were no differences between active and placebo groups in vital signs, blood biochemistry and urinalysis.
