- What is it?
Griffonia simplicifolia is a woody, climbing shrub found in West and Central Africa. The plant grows black pods which can be harvested for their amazing seeds. Through our partner farm in Ghana, Goldleaf has made these seeds available to you.
- How should I use it?
The seeds, about the size of a dime, can be ground into powder and added to beverages like coffee, tea, or smoothies with a meal or just before bed. Ingesting the powder before bed can help with sleep disorders like insomnia. However, users note that 5-HTP from Griffonia simplicifolia does not cause drowsiness while it regulates sleep. So, customers are assured that they can do whatever best fits their own personal schedule.
- Facts and info
Griffonia seeds naturally contain the amino acid, 5-hydroxytryptophan (or 5-HTP), which has been used for sleep disorders, depression, anxiety, weight control, migraines, fibromyalgia, PMS, and Parkinson’s disease. It is able to treat these by increasing production of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin, of course, regulates our mood, appetite, and sleep. When using the seeds for their 5-HTP, seeking guidance on a suitable dosage is recommended.
