Gamma-Amino Butyric Acid (GABA) – A Natural Relaxant
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is natural amino acid and a mood enhancing neurotransmitter. It is formed by glutamic acid in the body with the help of vitamin B6, and prevents nerve cells from firing too much, thus having a claming effect. This results with a relaxed or sedative effect which makes it ideal to calm the mind and body in much the same way as tranquilizer drugs like valium and serepax. These drugs act by inducing the same change in brain chemistry that GABA can perform. The only difference is GABA is entirely safe, is not addictive, will not knock you out and cause many other side effects associated with these drugs. It may be taken right before going to sleep as many people report an improvement in the quality of their sleep and a feeling of well-being upon arising in the morning. Lucid or colorful dreams are also frequently reported. In addition, because of its calming and soothing effects, GABA also lowers blood pressure, helps control hypoglycemia and prevents anxiety.
