What is 5-HTP ?
5-HTP comes from the beans of Griffonia Seed, a vine native to
Africa. In African folk medicine, Griffonia Seed is reputed to be
an aphrodisiac, as well as an antibiotic and a remedy for diarrhea,
vomiting, and stomachache. Recent research suggests that Griffonia
Seed raises serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin is important
in regulating brain chemistry and is especially important in
problems such as depression, insomnia, and eating disorders.
Theoretically, supplementing with Griffonia Seed can raise
serotonin levels and provide relief from depression and insomnia.
Griffonia Seed should also regulate appetite through the increase
in serotonin, leading to weight reduction in obese persons, while
helping normalize the weight of people suffering from anorexia
nervosa. Griffonia Seed has also been used in treating fibromyalgia
and chronic headaches in order to reduce pain.
