Functions of Ghanaian seed flavonoid
1. Antidepressant effect: Experimental observation showed that the utilization of L-TRP in patients with heavy depression was significantly lower than that in patients with mild depression.
2. Central analgesic effect: The experiment proves that the active ingredient in Ghana seed extract can exert central analgesic effect by increasing the content of serotonin (5-HT) in the central nervous system.
3. Hypnotic effect: 5-hydroxytryptophan can produce the neurohormonal precursor serotonin by vitamin B6 in the body to promote sleep and mental stability.
4. Effects on neuroendocrine activity: 5-hydroxytryptophan can be converted into certain hormones and directly involved in endocrine activities. In addition, it can also be converted into central neurotransmitter 5-hydroxytryptamine and indirectly affected the release of neurohormones
