Neurotransmitters are chemicals in the brain that communicate signals and messages from the brain to the rest of the body. They control vital functions such as breathing, hunger and one of their most important jobs is in regulating mood. GABA is known to be the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain because it helps to protect against overstimulation or excitement of the brain. Often people with executive functioning challenges or more commonly known as ADHD, have seen great benefits from supplementing with GABA. This has been a natural approach to assisting people with ADHD as GABA helps to create a calming effect which is important for mood, sleep, proper brain function as well as mental health in general.
Everyday stress is a part of our everyday lives and it cannot be completely avoided. While stress will not go away, we must get to know, what we can each handle when it comes to stress, as well as how we can cope with stress in a positive healthy way. We are all made differently, therefore, we cannot compare ourselves to one another. Get to know your body and eliminate unnecessary stressors. Then find stress relieving activities and if chronic stress has been part of your life and you are struggling, GABA may be the next step. GABA has been studied for its effects in individuals experiencing chronic worry and insomnia. Often sleeplessness is as a result of not being able to “turn off” their thoughts at night. GABA is highly effective in reducing stress and anxiety, and it promotes a healthy sleep. While GABA also has a protective role in preventing cognitive disorders and research shows it may reduce the frequency and intensity of seizures, consult your healthcare practitioner before supplementing with GABA.
