+Certificate of Analysis

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a metabolite of the amino acid Tryptophan and a direct precursor of the neurotransmitter inhibitor Serotonin. 5 HTP is found in its natural form in the grains of the African plant Griffonia simplicifolia. 5-HTP effectively raises the level of Serotonin in the brain, but without the side effects of the class of medication known as the Inhibitors of the Recapture of Serotonin such as PROZAC, to which it offers a real natural alternative. The symptoms of Serotonin deficiency can include:

- Depression - Insomnia
- Anxiety and anguish - Obsessional behaviour
- Migraines - Craving for carbohydrates
- Toxicologic dependency - Aggressiveness.

In several recent clinical studies, 5-HTP has been shown to be superior or equal to medication for treating depressed or anxious patients. One Norwegian study has shown that 5-HTP improves sleep (Serotonin is, in fact, the immediate precursor of Melatonin). Two studies (Spanish and Italian) have proven the effectiveness of 5-HTP against migraines. A patent has been granted to a doctor of the University of Texas for its use as an adjuvant therapy in stress-associated bulimic behaviour.
