What is 5-HTP (Griffonia)?
The secret to maintaining proper serotonin levels
Extracted from Griffonia seeds, the amino acid 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a precursor to the brain chemical serotonin. Evidence suggests that low serotonin levels cause many people be overweight, crave sugar and carbohydrates, experience bouts of depression, insomnia, frequent headaches, and have vague muscle aches and pain. All of these maladies are correctable by raising brain serotonin levels.
We often seek to increase our serotonin levels through the intake of carbohydrates and addictive substances suc h as alcohol, tobacco, certain narcotics, and caffeine. Ironically these substances are ultimately central nervous system depressants. Moreover, as serotonin levels plummet, individuals attempting to kick these habits develop a chemical withdrawal syndrome. 5 HTP, (and especially our 5 HTP with 9 essential aminos cream) is an ideal homeostatic mechanism for the regulation of serotonin levels.
