How Low Levels of "GABA" Impact Your Health

GABA, or Gamma-aminobutyric acid, is a chemical made in the brain that blocks specific signals in the central nervous system to provide a protective and calming affect on the brain and the body.

GABA's positive effects on the mind and body include increased relaxation, reduced stress and anxiety, a more calm, balanced mood, alleviation of pain, and better quality of sleep. 

GABA has anti-microbial, anti-seizure, and anti-oxidant properties as well.

Low GABA levels in the body can lead to chronic stress, anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, memory problems, headaches, muscle pain, insomnia, and low quality of sleep. 

It may also lead to having alcohol cravings, as alcohol targets GABA receptors and mimics the effect of this neurotransmitter, helping to relax the mind and body. 

Low GABA levels are caused by stress, anxiety, and a lack of nutrition and exercise.
