Energique’s GABA (γ-Aminobutyric Acid) is a non-alpha amino acid, functioning as a neurotransmitter. It has an inhibitory function, blocking impulses in the brain. That is, it regulates the excitability of neurons, acting as a balancer. Without it, your muscles would always be tense and your mind would not stop racing. WebMD indicates that lower levels of GABA may be linked to anxiety and mood disorders, epilepsy and chronic pain.
Supplementing with GABA may help to improve mood, relieve anxiety and modulate PMS and ADHD. It may also be helpful for discomfort from injuries, to increase tolerance to exercise, burn fat, increase lean muscle and lower blood pressure.
GABA is synthesized in the brain. Some sources indicate that it cannot pass the blood/brain barrier, so supplementation would be of limited benefit. Many others, however, have noted its effectiveness over many years.
