what is griffonia simplicifolia extract?
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), also known as oxitriptan (INN), is a naturally occurring amino
acid and chemical precursor as well as a metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the
neurotransmitters serotonin and melatonin from tryptophan.5-HTP is sold over the counter in the
United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom as a dietary supplement for use as an
antidepressant, appetite suppressant, and sleep aid. It is also marketed in many European countries
for the indication of major depression under the trade names Cincofarm, Levothym, Levotonine,
Oxyfan, Telesol, Tript-OH, and Triptum.
A 2002 review by the Cochrane Collaboration concluded that although the data evaluated suggests
that 5-HTP is more effective than placebo in the treatment of depression, the evidence was
insufficient to be conclusive due to a severe lack of high quality research. More and larger studies
are needed to determine if 5-HTP is truly effective in treating depression.
