Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid. Supports a Calm Mood. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid derivative and a key inhibitory neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that carry information between nerve cells or from nerve cells to other target cells. GABA is synthesized directly from glutamic acid. It has an inhibitory effect on the firing of neurons and supports a calm mood.
"When I consistently take this supplement (Note "consistently") I am less stressed and more pleasant to my husband. Read the book "Mood cure" (highly recommend for EVERYONE to read) for more information about taking this supplement!"
"My husband loves this stuff. He feels very relaxed when he takes it, although he took more than the reccommended amount. It did not seem to make as big a difference to me, but I am not very sensitive to such things."
"I've heard various things about GABA....some say it crosses the blood/brain barrier and others don't. I've also know people for whom it brings almost instantaneous relaxation, but not for me. It did nothing. And I've now tried a couple of different brands. But I would still suggest people try it because I do know people who swear by it."
