5-HTP Kapseln aus Griffonia Extrakt von Vitamineule

5-HTP capsules from the Griffonia plant

In Africa the Griffonia plant is considered an aphrodisiac. In Germany one is mainly interested in the so-called 5-HTP, which makes the seeds of the African black bean so valuable. 5-HTP stands for 5-hydroxytryptophan - this amino acid is involved in the biosynthesis of serotonin and melatonin. As a precursor of the mood and relaxation hormone serotonin, 5-HTP is involved in a number of processes in the human body. Our Vitamineule® 5-HTP capsules contain 100mg of pure 5 HTP per capsule and are manufactured in Germany under strict production conditions.

What is 5-HTP | 5-Hydroxytryptophan?

5-HTP or 5-Hydroxytryptophan, is the precursor of serotonin, the happiness hormone. From 5-HTP, the organism can very easily produce serotonin. 5-HTP is therefore considered to be an agent that can raise the serotonin level. A high serotonin level has an influence on mood swings, depression and anxiety. 5-HTP is often reported in connection with a high serotonin level to support weight loss, appetite inhibition, insomnia, fibromyalgia and the prevention of migraine. 5-HTP is extracted from the Griffonia plant and is therefore a preparation made from natural raw materials.

What is the function / effect of 5-HTP capsules?

5-HTP capsules can directly influence the serotonin level. This has various effects on the sleep rhythm and the feeling of hunger. As the body first converts the 5-HTP capsules to tryptophane, many people wonder whether taking tryptophane directly would not be more helpful. However, since the body can only process a small amount of directly administered tryptophane, 5-HTP capsules are better suited to increase serotonin levels. Due to the good tolerability of 5-hydroxytryptophan, most people have positive experiences when taking them.

How can I take tryptophan in my diet?

In contrast to many other active ingredients, 5-HTP or a form of tryptophane cannot be absorbed through the usual food in our latitudes. For this reason it makes sense to take a 5-HTP preparation in order to enjoy the benefits of the superfood. Vitamin Owl® 5-HTP capsules are free of artificial additives and are produced in Germany under strict conditions.

Does 5-HTP have side effects?

5-HTP increases the serotonin level. If taken over a long period of time, this can lead to a reduction in your feeling of hunger. Therefore, make sure that you always consume enough calories to avoid excessive weight loss.

What does the product contain?

Our Vitamineule® 5-HTP capsules contain only high-quality Griffonia powder with concentrated 5-HTP. In addition, only rice flour is contained in the vegetable cellulose shell. The 5-HTP capsules are vegan and free from artificial additives as well as lactose, gluten or allergens.
