Introducing GABA: The Brain's Own Calming Agent
If you're like most people, you probably don't spend a lot of time thinking about neurotransmitters. But did you know that these important chemicals play a vital role in keeping your brain healthy and functioning properly? One of the most important neurotransmitters is GABA, which stands for Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid. GABA is a non-protein amino acid that functions as a neurotransmitter in the human brain. It's known as the brain's own calming agent and is naturally produced in the body. By supporting a naturally balanced level of brain stimulation, GABA's presence within the central nervous system may help promote relaxation and ease nervous tension.* NOW provides only the naturally occurring L-form of GABA as found in food, as well as in the body.
What Is GABA?
As we mentioned before, GABA is a non-protein amino acid that serves as a neurotransmitter in the brain. Neurotransmitters are responsible for communication between nerve cells. They send signals from one nerve cell to another, and they play an important role in regulating mood, behavior, and sleep patterns. GABA is one of the most important neurotransmitters because it has a calming effect on the nervous system.*
How Does GABA Work?
GABA is manufactured in the brain from glutamic acid. When GABA binds to its receptor sites, it produces a calming effect.* This action can help support relaxation and ease nervous tension.*
Why Is GABA Important?
As we mentioned before, GABA plays an important role in regulating mood, behavior, and sleep patterns. It helps keep the nervous system balanced so that it can function properly.* A healthy level of GABA can help support healthy sleep patterns.* Research shows that inadequate sleep can lead to feelings of stress and anxiety.* So if you're struggling to get enough shut-eye, taking a supplement that contains GABA may help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.*
