GABA is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. It plays the principal role in reducing neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system. In humans, GABA is also directly responsible for the regulation of muscle tone.
Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is found in high concentration in the eyes and brain as a non-essential amino acid. The brain is able to produce GABA, but because of environmental or health reasons, levels can drop as we age. Vitabase GABA ™ works to support cellular function especially in the brain, and may promote relaxation and calming.
Gamma-aminobutyric acid – GABA
- GABA is a neurotransmitter in the brain.
- Supports cellular function.
- GABA stimulates the pituitary gland which makes Human Growth Hormone.
Important Amino Acid for Brain and Eyes
Gamma-AminoButyric Acid is a nonessential 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.
Encourages Relaxation and Better Sleep
Gamma-AminoButyric Acid 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 situations. GABA can help encourage relaxation and sleep.
Support for HGH Levels
GABA also affects the anterior pituitary gland, prompting it to release more human growth hormone. HGH contributes to muscle growth and limits the development of fat cells.
In some studies regular GABA supplementation led to excess fat loss and better sleep, but further research is necessary to establish specific health benefits from GABA supplementation.
