CONCENTRATION OF 5-HTP
5-HTP is a gray-white crystalline powder extracted from the seeds of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant. It contains no fillers of any kind.
5-HTP works in the brain and central nervous system by increasing the production of the chemical serotonin. Serotonin can affect sleep, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation. Since 5-HTP increases the synthesis of serotonin, it is used for several disorders where serotonin is believed in theory to play an important role including depression, insomnia, obesity, and many other conditions.
