L-5-Hydroxytryptophan Derived From Griffonia Seeds
5HTP whose full name is L-5-hyroxytryptophan, is a precursor to neurotransmitters involved in sending messages throughout the nervous system.
Our 5HTP Griffonia Seed extract is a natural supplement which is derived from the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. This plant is a woody climbing shrub native to West and Central Africa. It can grow to as much as 3 meters in height and bears black seed pods. The seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia are known to contain the herbal compound 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). Griffonia seeds contain up to 20% 5-HTP by weight.
