GABA Benefits and Uses

 

Gamma-aminobutyric acid is a naturally produced hormone and is the principal inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system (CNS) and is synthesized naturally from glutamate.

It does not have a high capacity to cross the blood-brain barrier, as a result of biochemical feedback systems. However, anecdotal reports suggest that its effects may be similar to other calming supplements.

Scientific Consensus:

Supplementing with this product is likely to be safe, even at larger serving sizes, but there is a need for further research into potential adverse effects, especially for pregnant or breastfeeding women. GABA has the potential to interact with some medications, and caution should be used.

 

It is not yet clear that a significant portion of GABA reaches the brain when taken orally. The significance of GABA’s benefits will only be apparent after further scientific evidence becomes available.

DO NOT EXCEED THE RECOMMENDED SERVING SIZE. Use with caution. Do not use if pregnant or breastfeeding.
