New Roots Herbal?s GABA is a supplement without any known side effect to promote relaxation and break the grip nervous tension can exert upon our body, mind, and spirit. Available in convenient capsule form, dosage can be tailored to suit individual therapeutic needs. GABA is an amino acid instrumental for calming the nervous system and promoting relaxation. gamma?Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the pivotal compound employed by nerve cells as a defense mechanism for stress. It populates specific receptors within neurons: Once GABA receptors are locked down, neurons open up to allow negatively charged ions to pass through; this reduces the excitability of neurons, and thus, stress. Our formula also contains the biologically active form of vitamin B6 (pyridoxal-5??phosphate), a vital precursor for neurotransmitter synthesis. Chronic stress can lead to emotional burnout, poor sleep patterns, emotional eating, impaired learning, lack of mental focus, and impaired memory. GABA is produced by neurons within the brain; therefore, in supplement form, it?s easily recognized and employed by neurons to ease excitability.
