GABA Powder

GABA is an abbreviation for the nonessential amino, Gamma-Amino Butyric Acid. This inhibitory neurotransmitter is formed by the biochemical reaction of glutamic acid by the vitamin pyridoxal; including decarboxylase (GAD). In human physiology, a neurotransmitter is defined as a chemical that fosters communication between nerve cells in the central nervous system (CNS). Along with the amino acids aspartate, glutamate, and glycine; GABA is another amino acid that is critical in brain functioning.

Found in the hippocampus, gamma-aminobutyric acid's main purpose is to prevent the over-firing of the nerve cells and to decrease overall neuron activities occurring within the CNS. It is also used by the brain to promote calmness and tranquility via brain metabolism. This may prove extremely beneficial due to the addictive potential of many prescribed “tranquilizing” drugs (benzodiazepines), to those suffering from certain forms of restlessness and/or anxiety. It is also equally important in the mediation and of muscle activities, and in the stimulation of certain glands located throughout the body.

Regarding to brain chemistry and brain health, GABA may be among the most important of all nonessential nutrients.
