L-5-hydroxyTroptophan (L-5-HTP) is converted by the body to serotonin, which is a major neurotransmitter of the central nervous system.
Solarays Enteric coated vegan capsules help deliver 5-HTP to the small intestine, protecting it from stomach acid destruction. Alpha-Galactosidase enzyme is added to aid digestion of Griffonia bean.
Though many companies and researchers are finding ways to naturally attack obesity and depression, one natural solution has emerged to become one of the most exciting options for both problems: Griffonia simplicifolia, a West African seed from a plant commonly used as food and medicine.
Within the body, 5-HTP changes to serotonin, one of the most important natural transmitters in the brain. Essentially, when were low on serotonin, we experience cravings and feelings of depression. So, if you can influence the bodys use of serotonin, you can influence the bodys appetite and mood.
The idea that serotonin might affect our appetite is less than a quarter of a century old, but in that short time, a solid theory has emerged from numerous research projects dealing with serotonin: When the brain, particularly the area known as the satiety center, has more serotonin available, our feelings of satiety - the feeling of being full increase. And accordingly, we eat less. Much of the most interesting research, therefore, has been to help the body use serotonin better and to keep more of it in between the brains nerve cells in order to increase our feelings of fullness.
Though the human studies linking 5-HTP and the control of obesity showed little evidence of 5-HTP being connected with a change in mood, significant research seems to show that 5-HTP may also help combat depression for some people.
