5-HTP is a high-quality seed extract from the West African plant Griffonia Simplicifolia, which contain large amounts of 5-hydroxytryptophan.
5-HTP consists of:
5-Hydroxytryptophan - a compound that is a direct precursor to Serotonin, a hormone that plays a very important role in the processes of appetite regulation, improve mood and optimize the secretion of other hormones. Since Serotonin itself does not have the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, an effective way to raise its level is supplementing its precursors, among which the most effective is 5-hydroxytryptophan.
