What Is It?
Gamma aminobutyric acid or GABA is the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Inhibitory neurotransmitters protect against overstimulation of the brain, which is important for mood, sleep, brain function and mental health.
What Does It Do?Primary Uses: GABA is effective in reducing stress and apprehension, and promotes healthy sleep. It is effective against a variety of central nervous system disorders, and has been shown to affect the brain directly, increasing α -brain waves (those associated with relaxation) and reducing β -brain waves (those associated with worry and stress). During times of stress, GABA acts to regulate brain excitability, acting as an inhibitor of nerve impulses or signals between neurons in the brain and spinal cord, effectively creating a ‘calming effect'.Secondary Uses: GABA may reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures.
Who Should Take It?
GABA is useful for those who suffer from worry and stress, those who have trouble sleeping such as menopausal women, and may be a natural support for those with epilepsy.
Take 1-2 capsules daily without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
