What is Griffonia Seed Extract?

The main chemical component of Griffonia seed extract is 5 hydroxytryptophan, referred to as 5-HTP, which is a natural amino acid extracted from the dried seeds of the leguminous shrub plant Griffonia Simplicifolia.

People with lower 5 hydroxytryptophan levels are more likely to suffer from depression, impulsivity and even aggressive and violent behaviors. 

It can be converted into 5 hydroxytryptophan through decarboxylation in the body, which can help the body increase 5 hydroxytryptophan levels and is an important neurotransmitter. 

Modern research has found that 5 hydroxytryptophan has physiological effects such as antidepressant, central analgesia, hypnosis, anti-stress, and endocrine regulation.

1. Antidepressant effect

Griffonia seed extract 5 hydroxytryptophan produces serotonin in the human body, which is helpful for normal nerve important substances and brain function. Serotonin can help sleep. It can also effectively control pain and treat depression.

2. Central analgesic effect

5 hydroxytryptophan can exert central analgesic effects. After the 5-HT descending fibers in the brain reach the spinal cord, they can be mediated by interneurons and activate enkephalin neurons in the dorsal glial area. The latter can inhibit the transmission of peripheral pain information to the secondary level through presynaptic inhibition. neurons, thereby exerting central analgesic effects.

3. Effects on cardiovascular system

Studies have found that TRP also has antihypertensive activity.

4. Hypnotic effect

5 hydroxytryptophan can use vitamin B6 to generate the neurohormone precursor 5-hydroxytryptophan in the body, thereby promoting sleep and mental stability.
