GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid)

GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) is both a neurotransmitter and amino acid produced in the brain. It has an inhibitory function as it blocks nerve impulses. For instance, GABA is needed during stressful situations as it lessens the impact of the stress hormones, thereby eliciting a calmer state. This may also be manufactured and taken as a supplement to improve mood, lessen the impact of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), treat attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), burn fat, relieve pain, regulate muscle tone, and stabilize blood pressure.
