Griffonia is extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia. Its active ingredient 5-hydroxy tryptophan (5-HTP) is a precursor to the important neurotransmitter serotonin, which regulates several vital processes in the body; including sleep, emotional stability, pain sensitivity and cravings.

Clinical studies show that Griffonia extract helps to increase levels of serotonin in the brain. A deficit of this neurotransmitter can lead to the following complaints: depression, insomnia, anxiety, migraine and an uncontrollable appetite. 5-HTP can help to reduce these complaints.
Many people who reach for ice cream, sweets and pastries when they feel stressed or depressed are instinctively attempting to increase their uptake of tryptophan to elevate their serotonin levels and improve their mood. Unfortunately, it takes large quantities of these "comfort foods" (with their unhealthy fats, sugars and calories) to significantly affect serotonin levels. Taking Griffonia extract in the form of a supplement instead, can not only quickly improve your mood, it can also help control your appetite.
Improves your sense of well-being and reduces insomnia. Because of its calming effect, many rely on Griffonia extract to help you undergo stress-like conditions, as well as to encourage restful sleep. It can be taken regularly one hour before retiring as a remedy for insomnia.
