GABA Info And Products
May Help Increase Your Natural GH Production*
GABA, short for Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid, is an amino acid that functions as the primary inhibitory and depressive neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, including the brain. It’s also sometimes called the “downer” neurotransmitter for its ability to essential “calm” you down. GABA accomplishes this by blocking certain nerve impulses in the brain, ultimately putting you in a state of relaxation.
Clinical trials suggest that GABA helps control fear and anxiety when neurons become too “excited.” Because of this, GABA plays a critical role in behavior, cognition, and the body's response to all forms of stress (physical, emotional, and psychological).
Additionally, GABA supports the regulation of sedation and sleep, and may even potentiate a few benefits associated with “deep-sleep” such as increased growth hormone (GH) levels. Growth hormone has been found in research to support fat metabolism in the body as well as increase lean mass and accelerate recovery.
To take advantage of GABA’s sedative qualities, it is best consumed in a dose ranging between 500mg - 2g approximately 20 - 30 minutes before going to bed.
