5 HTP (5- Hydroxytryptophan) is an amino acid that is not produced by the body nor found in
the food we consume. This chemical byproduct is found in the seeds of an African plant
known as Griffonia Simplicifolia. 5- HTP helps increase the production of serotonin in the
brain which plays an important role in the central nervous system and therefore helps
regulate mood, appetite, sleep, and relieves pain. Research has found that this chemical
can help reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety.
