What is GABA?

GABA

Growth Hormone Activator!

GABA, or Gamma-Aminobutryic Acid, is a powerful amino acid that was first discovered in 1883 in Berlin. It is actually classified as a nearuotransmitter, which means it helps nerve impulses cross the synapses (gaps) and communicate better. GABA has a great number of positive effects on the nervous system.

Where does GABA come from?

GABA in the body is primarily synthesized from glutamate via the enzyme glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) with pyridoxal phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6) as a cofactor. This process converts glutamate (the principal excitatory neurotransmitter) into GABA (the principal inhibitory neurotransmitter).

GABA may also be present in some fermented foods, such as kimchi, miso, and tempeh. These are not foods that most people include in their daily diets, so many people take GABA supplements to achieve the benefits.

Who needs it and what are some symptoms of deficiency?

GABA has some startling effects on promoting fat loss. How does this work? GABA stimulates the production of Human Growth Hormone (HGH). It is HGH that has been found in studies to facilitate the metabolism of fats in the body. HGH is also known for it’s powerful muscle-building effects. Awesome! Increasing HGH is definitely a good thing, especially for bodybuilders. HGH tends to decrease naturally with age, so the older you get, the harder it is to lose fat. That’s one reason GABA has become so popular.

Other studies have shown that GABA increases the body’s sleeping cycle and patients reported much more vivid dreams. Getting a good night’s sleep and obtaining more rest can lead to more energy throughout the day. Not to mention, increasing fat loss and promoting muscle growth also leads to an increase in energy. More energy feelings of vigor are common side effects of supplementing with GABA!

Last, GABA has been shown to be very effective in treating pain associated with arthritis or the lower back. Most scientific research indicates that the proper amounts of GABA to take per day is a minimum of 2 grams. Better results have been found when supplementing with 5 grams per day. For serious results, studies have found that supplementing between 5 and 18 grams works well. If GABA is being taken for fat loss, it’s best to take it about 2 hours before going to bed, since that is when production of HGH is the best. For pain support, GABA can be taken any time and be effective.

Since GABA is not a daily requirement of the human body there are no signs of deficiency.

How much should be taken? Are there side effects?

GABA is possibly safe when taken in larger amounts as medicine. Doses of up to 1.5 grams daily have been used for up to one month. Always follow manufactures direction or those from your health care provider if there are problems with dosage.
