5 HTP Powder is a compound that gets converted into serotonin in the brain while serotonin is one of the principal neurotransmitters involved in happiness and anti-depression.
5 HTP Powder, also known as griffonia simplicifolia seed extract, is natural extracted from Griffonia simplicifolia seed, the raw material Griffonia simplicifolia can be found principally in the West African countries, mainly in Ghana, Ivory Coast and Togo.
In the traditional therapeutic application of those countries, the leaf and juice of the plant can be used for the treatment of wounds and nephropathy, and also as enema and aphrodisiac, while the comminuted bark can be made into ointment for the treatment of diseases
like chancroid etc.
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5 HTP), the main active component of griffonia seed extract, is an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical serotonin. The natural ingredient can be used in anti-hypochondria, weight loss, relieving PMS, curing hemicrania, and abstaining from addiction.
So more and more researches found out that,5 hydroxytryptophan powder is effective for
● Sleep Disorders: Narcolepsy and Insomnia
● Pre-Menstrual Syndrome
How does griffonia seed extract work?
Griffonia seed extract 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 diseases where serotonin is believed to play an important role including depression, insomnia, and many other conditions.
Cautions: 5 hydroxytryptophan powder increases a brain chemical called serotonin. Some medications for depression also increase serotonin. Taking 5-HTP along with these medications for depression might increase serotonin too much and cause serious side effects including heart problems, shivering, and anxiety. Do not take 5-HTP together if you are taking medications for depression.

How to take it?
Children: 5-HTP is POSSIBLY SAFE when taken by mouth appropriately. Doses of up to 5 mg/kg daily have been used safely for up to 3 years in infants and children up to 12 years old. As with adults, there is also concern about the potential for eosinophilia-myalgia syndrome (EMS) in children, a serious condition involving extreme muscle tenderness (myalgia) and blood abnormalities (eosinophilia).
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking 5-HTP if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Surgery: griffonia seed extract can affect a brain chemical called serotonin. Some drugs administered during surgery can also affect serotonin. Taking 5-HTP before surgery might cause too much serotonin in the brain and can result in serious side effects including heart problems, shivering, and anxiety. Tell patients to stop taking 5 HTP powder at least 2 weeks before surgery.
