Griffonia Simplicifolia Extract (Seed)(STD. To 99% 5 HTP)
What is Griffonia Seed 5-HTP?
Griffonia simplicifolia is a type of plant found in western parts of Africa. The seeds are used as a medicine because they contain a chemical called 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). Griffonia simplicifolia seeds are commonly used by mouth for depression, anxiety, weight loss, headaches, and insomnia. 5-HTP is an amino acid that converts into serotonin inside the body. Serotonin is a chemical that acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain.
Griffonia Seed 5-HTP Benefits:
Griffonia Seed extract produces its beneficial effects by raising the levels of serotonin in the brain. The extract is quickly metabolized in the liver, releasing the active ingredient 5-HTP. When it reaches the brain, 5-HTP triggers increased production of serotonin. Serotonin is often referred to as the "happiness chemical," because as a neurotransmitter it is responsible for sending signals of pleasure and contentment between the neurons. So when Griffonia Seed Extract increases the amount of serotonin, it sets the stage for a wide number of benefits.
