GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) is a non-protein amino acid that functions as a neurotransmitter in the human brain. GABA is naturally produced in the body and its 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.
GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid)is an amino acid derivative that functions as an inhibitory neurotransmitter of the central nervous system. It is an anti-stress, anti-anxiety, calming and relaxing nutrient. It has been used clinically for depressed sex drive, prostate problems, and as a non-addictive tranquilizer substitute.
GABA is referred to as the "brain's natural calming agent." Studies have shown that GABA increases the body's sleeping cycle and patients reported much more vivid dreams and a good night's sleep.
NOW provides only the naturally occurring L-form as found in food and in the body.
What is better, GABA in capsules or in powder?
The powder looks like a better choice due to its higher absorption speed than that in capsules. High absorption plays important role in terms of time/recovery. The capsules are better in terms of convenient usage. Whatever you choose, be sure you get the highest quality in the market.
Is GABA habit forming?
No, to date, the facts have not been reported with the use of GABA.
Can GABA be Mixed with a Protein Drink?
GABA can be taken with any other supplement, but not at the same time. Since it is a single amino acid, its absorption will be maximized in a "noncompetitive" environment, which will give you the best results.
Why I feel minor tingling of the skin?
Some individuals may experience a minor tingling of the skin and/or slight shortness of breath shortly after taking GABA. This is characteristic of this amino acid and quickly subsides.
Are there any others side effects?
You could have a brief and mild change in heart rate or breathing patterns. These side effects quickly disappear and are not harmful. Not everyone experiences them.
