5-HTP (Griffonia Seed Extract) Powder
HEALTH BENEFITS PROVIDED BY 5-HTP (Griffonia Seed Extract)
5-HTP is an effective supplement for weight loss and eating disorders. It has the ability to suppress appetite by increasing the amount of Serotonin in the brain. As building blocks of the neurotransmitter Serotonin, it has the ability to increase the amount of Serotonin in the brain and gastrointestinal tract where it asserts its influence in regulating a person's appetite and eating patterns.
5-HTP protects against irritability, anger and aggressive behavior. A study conducted among 17-32 males with personality behavior revealed that their history of aggressiveness and suicidal tendencies were associated with low levels of 5-HIAA or 5 Hydroxyindoleaceticacid found in the cerebrospinal fluid.
5-HTP can regulate a person's sleep patterns due to its ability to influence various locations in the brain that are associated with the sleep-wake cycle. Moreover, a number of Serotonin receptors connected to the human brain have been discovered leading to the conclusion that 5-HTP receptors are involved in the different stages of sleep.
