These seeds are used in alternative healing practices for treating depression. They help the body to create a vital neurochemical that regulates mood, thus making it useful as an anti-depressant. If you're wondering how these seeds could possibly do this, then brace yourself for the truth. The plant produces a phytochemical known as 5-HTP 5-hydroxytryptophan. It's an important building block for our bodies to create serotonin.
Phytochemist have also discovered other compounds known as legume lectins, called GS Isolectin B4, which binds to alpha-D-galactosyl residues of polysaccharides and glycoproteins. Woah, right? Yes, the science behind these seeds as a health remedy is quite complex.
Sense serotonin is a precursor to melatonin, it makes sense that this supplement can be used as a sleep aid as well. Melatonin is another chemical made in the body. It's used to regulate human Circadian Rhythms. Circadian Rhythms are our cycles of wake and sleep. Thus, melatonin is required to fall asleep.
Griffonia seeds have a strong and sweet aroma that smells just like garlic. This may make them useful in the culinary arts. Just use them in place of garlic, or in combination with it to compliment its flavor. It will also boost tryptophan levels in your cooking. ( obviously ) Another option for using the seeds is in tincture form, or infused tinctures.
A tincture is a form of holistic medicine where the plant material is soaked in high proof alcohol, preferably everclear ( at least 75% alc ) for a minimum duration of one month. It's to be stored in a cool dark place. Darkness is essential because light can damage or destroy some phytochemicals, as can higher temperatures. Tinctures have a very long shelf life. They also ensure that both polar and non-polar constituents are extracted. You can even evaporate some of most of the extract to concentrate it further.
Alternative medicine generally works on the principle of symbiosis. This basically means that plants which compliment each other are used in combination. When it comes to Griffonia Simplicifolia Seeds, I think Ginger root and black pepper are the perfect combination. The reason why is Ginger root has been used all throughout history to aid in digestion. Black pepper contains piperine, which has been shown to make the bio-availability of certain phytochemicals more abundant in the digestion process. Thus, my hypothesis is the synergistic combination of these three plants can induce much more potent medicinal applications.
