Powdered, naturally occurring substance, extracted from the seeds of Griffonia Simplicifolia plant.
Collected in Ghana and the Ivory Coast in Africa.
The 5-HTP has been extracted using an alcohol extraction process. The crude 5-HTP obtained is purified by a series of recrystallization steps.
The seeds have been thoroughly tested for cleanliness and quality before drying and milling. Strict manufacturing and quality control procedures are implemented throughout the process. The final product is subjected to extensive testing to ensure it meets our final release specification. Every batch is tested by HPLC with UV detection for assay and the presence of Impurities. Our release specification requires that every batch meets 99% minimum for 5-HTP. The only significant impurity is L-Tryptophan for which our release specification is 0.18% maximum. In practice, all 5-HTP has less than 0.1 % L-Tryptophan when tested by HPLC with UV detection.
Powdered leaves and roots of herbaceous perennial flowering plant, native to Europe, Asia, northern Africa, and North America.
Collected in Northern Europe and the United States.
The leaves and the roots have been thoroughly tested for cleanliness and quality before drying and milling. The final product is subjected to extensive testing to ensure it meets our final release specification.
