5-Hydroxytrytophan (formerly Griffonia) is a natural source of 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), the intermediate metabolite produced when the body initiates the process of converting the essential amino acid L-tryptophan to serotonin. Serotonin levels in the body are associated with the regulation of sleep, mood, aggression, appetite, temperature, sexual behavior, and pain sensation.
