The African black bean Griffonia is native to West Africa and Central Africa. The 3 meter high climbing plant grows and thrives with greenish flowers. The greenish flowers later produce the black pods when fully mature. Griffonia is rich in the amino acid 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP), which is the precursor to serotonin and melatoninnd melatonin.
Serotoninalso known as the "happy hormone", is a neurotransmitter that transmits information in our nervous system and influences our emotions.
Melatonin is our "sleep hormone" and ensures that we get tired and sleep well.
Saffron belongs to the crocus family and grows mainly in the Mediterranean region, where it is painstakingly harvested by hand. Saffron consists only of the fine pistil threads of the saffron flower and is the most precious spice in the world. One kilo of saffron requires between 150,000 and 200,000 saffron blossoms (cultivation area approx. 2 soccer fields) and for 50 g of saffron threads a picker needs about one day. Saffron is not only used in the kitchen, but also because of its valuable secondary plant substances, such as the carotenoids crocin and crocetin, it is nowadays also used in many dietary supplements.
Each capsule contains 202 mg Griffonia extract, 99% of which is 5-HTP (200 mg) and 15 mg saffron extract.
