Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers found throughout the central nervous and multiple organ systems. They help drive vital functions and one of their most important roles is in regulating mood. Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), is the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Its signals protect against overstimulation or excitement of the brain, creating a calming effect which is important for mood, sleep, chronic stress, and brain function. GABA is a natural remedy for improving and maintaining optimal mental health.
The neurotransmitter 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 (also known as “monkey mind.”) It is effective in reducing stress and anxiety, and has been shown to help with falling asleep faster. It affects the brain directly by increasing brain waves associated with relaxation (alpha -waves) and reducing brain waves associated with worry and stress (beta waves).
GABA is a natural neurotransmitter which is present in the body and which offers a safe alternative to anxiety disorder medications. Anti-anxiety drugs such as benzodiazepines can become addictive, a risk that is non-existent with GABA supplementation. AOR’s GABA™ provides 600 mg pharmaceutical grade gamma aminobutyric acid, which has a purity of over 99%.
