Folic acid was discovered between 1931 and 1943. The term "folic" is from the Latin word folium (which means leaf) because it was found in dark-green leafy vegetables. Folic acid is a B vitamin and is therefore water-soluble. This means that although it is naturally found in specific foods (in the form of folate), Folic acid is often lost when cooking with liquid. Good sources of Folic acid include green leafy vegetables, e.g kale, broccoli, and spinach.
Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) and Vitamin B12 are water-soluble vitamins, and both are considered to be essential nutrients for the human body. Vitamin B5 is especially important because of its synthesis of the co-A enzyme, and B12 because of its role in the nervous system and maturation of red blood cells in bone marrow. Vitamin B5 and B12 both support the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, while B5 contributes to normal mental performance, and B12 plays a role in normal psychological function.
Chamomile has been used for many things over the centuries, including as flavouring for foods, beverages, soaps, and cosmetics. However, it is most commonly known as the herbal infusion Chamomile tea. The whole plant has historically been used in making beer and ale as well. Chamomile’s name is derived from the Greek (khamaimēlon), "earth apple".The main constituents of Chamomile flowers are polyphenols, which are common ingredients in supplements independently.
5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is an amino acid that the body produces from the amino acid L-tryptophan. L-tryptophan is one of the building blocks that form protein and is commonly found in soy products, red meat, poultry, fish, eggs, oat bran, etc. Our 5-HTP is naturally sourced from Griffonia seeds found in the Griffonia simplicifolia, an African plant that grows well in Central and Western Africa.
Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) has been used for more than 2000 years. In Ancient Greece, it was believed that Lemon Balm and bees shared a strong relationship and that they used the plant to find the way back to their hives. The Ancient Greeks also believed that the herb promotes long life. Many cultures believed that the plant possessed “mystical” soothing powers. In the Middle Ages, the herb was a symbol of sympathy.
