What’s Griffonia Simplicifolia Extract / 5-HTP?
Aug 02, 2017

Griffonia Seed Extract also known as htp 5 or oxitriptan (INN), 5-hydroxytryptophan, is a naturally occurring amino acid and chemical precursor as well as a metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters

serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan. It is an all-natural vegetarian extract that serves as a precursor to serotonin in the body. For decades, its effects have been studied for balancing mood and reducing food cravings! It is a natural amino acid extract, derived from the seed of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. It is the immediate precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter that serves two vital purposes in the body: It is generally thought of as the “happy” neurotransmitter, encouraging a feeling of wellbeing, contentment and stress reducer, and it also fosters a feeling of satiety in the digestive tract, which can have a positive effect on reducing excess food cravings.


It is also known as oxitriptan is a naturally occurring amino acid and metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin. It is a direct extract of griffonia seed. Some studies have shown that 5-HTP is an effective supplement for many things, at the top of the list is the ability to aid in the suppression of appetite, which may help with weight loss. 5-HTP helps with this by increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain. 5-HTP is one of the building blocks for the neurotransmitter serotonin. It has been shown to have the ability to increase the amount of serotonin in the brain and gastrointestinal tract where it asserts its ability to influence a person's appetite and eating patterns.

Griffonia Seed Extract (5-HTP) has also been known to help keep a person from getting irritable, angry or even displaying aggressive behavior. This also is a direct result of its ability to directly manipulate serotonin levels. 5-HTP can also help regulate a person's sleep patterns. This also is due to its ability to affect different parts of the brain that are associated with a sleep wake cycle. Further, a number of serotonin receptors connected to the human brain have been discovered leading to the conclusion that 5-HTP receptors may also be involved in different stages of sleep to 5-HTP treatment.
