Griffonia extract promotes relaxation [sleep], mental well -being and normal mood
Griffonia (Griffonia simplicifolia) is a climbing plant belonging to the Fabaceae family. It produces green flowers, brown pods and reddish seeds from which the dry extract rich in active ingredients is obtained. It is native to West Africa but is also found abundantly in Ghana, Togo and the Ivory Coast. The seeds are harvested in the winter months and it is precisely from the processing of these seeds that 5-hydroxy tryptophan (5-HTP) is obtained, an amino acid whose function is to increase serotonin levels. The active ingredient of Griffonia is Tryptophan which is a precursor of Serotonin and therefore of Melatonin. The benefit of this plant is expressed on mood, mental well-being, sleep and the regulation of the sense of hunger. It also promotes relaxation.
Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin due to its ability to dissolve in water. It cannot be accumulated in the body and, therefore, must be introduced daily with food. Vitamin B6 intervenes in the transformation process (metabolism) of proteins, carbohydrates and fats and contributes to the formation of hemoglobin, a substance present in red blood cells which has the function of transporting oxygen to all tissues. Vitamin B6 is important for normal brain development, for stimulating brain function and for keeping the entire nervous system and body's defense system (immune system) healthy. It is essential for the synthesis of serotonin, a molecule which, together with other neurotransmitters, helps regulate mood, sleep, appetite, memory and the ability to concentrate.
