Serotonin plus is a supplement with Griffonia and Rhodiola that helps keep humour stable.


30 vegicaps - 380 mg


Griffonia simplicifolia belongs to the Leguminosae family, and is also known as the "African bean".


It is the main source of 5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan), an immediate precursor in the biosynthesis of Serotonin, a neurotransmitter that carries out a number of very important functions in the central nervous system, helping to regulate humour and behaviour in the event of stress, as well as regulating mnemonic processes and concentration. It raises plasmatic levels of beta-endorphin and platelet levels of met-enkephalin, with an analgesic effect. Serotonin mediates the leptin protein associated with developing obesity.


Rhodiola rosea belongs to the Crassulaceae family, and is also known as "Arctic root" or "golden root".


The plant is commonly found in the Arctic and mountainous regions of Europe and Asia. It is considered adaptogenic as a result of its ability to boost resistance to a variety of chemical, biological and physical stress factors.

Rhodiola rosea’s activity has been mainly attributed to its ability to influence the transport of 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) through the haematoencephalic barrier; the levels and the activity of monoamines and opioid peptides such as beta-endorphins; the concentration and activity of serotonin and of peptides such as beta-endorphins. It inhibits the action of the enzymes responsible for breaking down Serotonin, and improves the transport of the neurotransmitters of the brain. It also appears to stimulate lipase in fatty tissue. Useful to combat acute stress; weakness causes by excessive work or study load; nervous hunger.


The main actions of serotonin are:


  • Antidepressant action: modulates mood regulation and symptoms of anxiety and depression

  • Calming action: reduces the symptoms of anxiety, has a positive effect on sleep and a significant effect on panic attacks

  • Reduces body weight: significant weight loss has been observed in women with obesity problems, linked in particular to appetite control

  • Muscle relaxant action: studies have demonstrated a significant reduction in the use of pain relief for chronic muscle tension related headaches.

  • Fibromyalgia: a double-blind study has demonstrated an improvement in symptoms.

Serotonin is partly turned into melatonin, with significant effects on the sleep-wake cycle.
