GABA is a neurotransmitter that inhibits the activity of excitatory neuronal impulses to prevent the overstimulation of the brain. GABA has been referred to as the brain’s natural calming agent and helps to temporarily promote relaxation.
Neurotransmitters are messenger chemicals that communicate signals from the brain to the rest of the body. They control vital functions such as breathing, hunger and body temperature, but one of their most important roles is in regulating mood. Gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA, is the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Inhibitory neurotransmitters protect against overstimulation or excitement of the brain, creating a calming effect which is important for mood, sleep, brain function and mental health. GABA is a natural remedy for improving and maintaining optimal mental health.
GABA has been studied for its effects in individuals experiencing chronic worry and insomnia as a result of not being able to “turn off” their thoughts at night. GABA is highly effective in reducing stress and anxiety, and promotes healthy sleep. It has been shown to affect the brain directly, increasing a-brain waves (those associated with relaxation) and reducing ß-brain waves (those associated with worry and stress). During times of stress, GABA acts to regulate brain excitability and inhibits signals in the brain which cause mood imbalances and stress, effectively creating a ‘relaxing effect’. GABA also has a protective role in preventing cognitive disorders and may reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures.
GABA’s rapid action can increase the quality of life in those who suffer from worry and stress, those who have trouble sleeping such as older individuals, and may be a natural support for those with epilepsy.
