Product Description of Ghana Seed Extract:

5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid. It can be used as a precursor of serotonin (serotonin, 5-HT) in the human body (and then as a precursor of melatonin). Several double-blind studies have shown that 5-HTP can increase brain serotonin concentrations, improve depression and promote melatonin formation, improve sleep quality, and suppress appetite, but these studies are questionable. Therefore, more studies are still needed to confirm whether 5-HTP has these physiological effects. [1] Ghana seeds are rich in 5-hydroxytryptophan, which is currently the main natural source of 5-HTP.

5-HTP is classified as a pharmaceutical ingredient in some countries. 5-HTP is marketed as a dietary supplement (health supplement) in the US, UK and Canada

Function of Ghana Seed Extract:

 5-HTP is a precursor of a hormone called serotonin (5-hydroxytryptophan, 5-HT) in the human body. 5-HTP can help the production of 5-HT in the body. 5-HT is related to some basic functions of the nervous system such as arousal, emotions, etc., and can also control the transmission of human language, movement and sensation. Therefore, 5-HTP is used for antidepressants; weight loss; sleep improvement; relieving PMS; migraine, tension and chronic headaches, BH4 deficiency phenylketonuria, etc.
