by Vitabase

  • Primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain
  • Can help encourage relaxation and stress reduction
  • May help reduce nervous tension
  • Stimulates anterior pituitary gland responsible for human growth hormone
  • May help restore normal sleep cycles
  • Raised HGH levels resulted in loss of excess weight

Gamma Aminobutyric Acid, or GABA, is a non-essential amino acid found in high concentrations in the brain and eyes. GABA is formed from glutamic acid with the aid of vitamin B6. Usually the brain is capable of producing sufficient GABA but due to a variety of environmental or health reasons levels can drop. The result can be anxiety, irritability, or insomnia. Low GABA levels have also been associated with depression. GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. In this role, it helps prevent transmission of messages from one cell to another. This means GABA can help prevent anxiety or stress-related messages from reaching the brain. GABA plays a key role in how the central nervous system responds to stressful situation. GABA can help encourage relaxation and sleep. GABA also affects the anterior pituitary gland prompting it to release more Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH contributes to muscle growth and limits the development of fat cells.

Regular GABA supplementation led to excess fat loss and better sleep in some studies but further research is necessary to establish specific health benefits for GABA supplementation.
