5‑Hydroxytryptophan (5‑HTP) derived from the seed of Griffonia simplicifolia is a natural precursor needed for the synthesis of serotonin as well as for the neurohormone melatonin. Orally administered serotonin is not able to cross the blood-brain barrier and therefore cannot enter the CNS. 5‑HTP, however, is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, where it can then be utilized as a precursor to raise serotonin levels safely.
