What is Griffonia Simpicifolia Extract?
TIZAN Griffonia Simpicifolia Extract 5-HTP is an extract of Griffonia simplicifolia (syn. Bandeiraea simplicifolia Benth.), which plant is a woody climbing shrub native to West Africa and Central Africa. It grows to about 3 m, and bears greenish flowers followed by black pods. The seeds of the plant are used as an herbal supplement for their 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) content. 5-Hydroxytryptophan is an important building block for the human body to form serotonin, a neurotransmitter. In one “randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial” in 2010 Griffonia simplicifolia extract, administered via oral spray to twenty overweight females resulting in increased satiety.
