Ginger Root Extract
Ginger is a well known spice and flavoring agent which has also been used in traditional medicine in many countries. This large seasonal plant is cultivated in Southeast Asia and China, India, and some parts of Africa.
Ginger, a source of valuable phytonutrients, is characterized as having an aromatic odor and a pungent taste. The part of the ginger plant that is used is the root. The flat surfaces of the rhizome are removed, leaving the remains of the underground stem. Ginger contains essential oils including gingerol and zingiberene. It also contains pungent principles such as zingerone, gingerol and shogaol.
For centuries, in Ayurvedic and Tibetan systems of medicine, ginger has been used in the management of headache, nervous diseases, nausea, and vomiting. Ginger has been noted to treat migraine headaches without side-effects. In addition, it is also recommended in the management of rheumatic disorders and muscular pain.

Green Coffee extract is produced by using unroasted coffee bean. The extraction process aim to concentrate the Chlorogenic acids, molecules having small phenolics bound to a Quinic acid group.
The Chlorogenic Acids in Green Coffee Extract are readily absorbed, and they themselves or their metabolites (such as ferulic acid) mediate many of the benefits of Green Coffee Extract.
Green Coffee Extract may weakly reduce body weight in overweight and obese persons (the mechanisms involved in this remains currently unknown, thought to be related to preventing carbohydrate uptake from the intestines after a meal). Some studies suggest that green coffee supplementation improve the blood health by increasing vasoreactivity and lowering blood pressure. This improvement benefit mainly to benefit people with poor vascular function or high blood pressure. Some studies have attributed this property to the ferulic acid metabolite.
Our opinion: Green Coffee Extract is a good and healthy ingredient. However, for validated all the benefits it is touted for, more studies should be done and we still consider that it seems to not be as efficient as some other supplements.
Studies that have been done on Griffonia simplicifolia suggest that when supplemented as an herb, it may rival the effects of supplementing 5-HTP in isolation. However, further research is needed to confirm this effect. There may be other bioactives in the plant that are still undiscovered. Additional studies are needed to determine whether supplementing Griffonia simplicifolia is truly comparable to supplementing 5-HTP.5-HTP is the precursor to serotonin, the neurotransmitter sometimes touted to be responsible for happiness. 5-HTP is a simple way to increase brain serotonin levels by bypassing the rate-limiting step, and users reap either the rewards or the hazards of increased brain serotonin.
