GABA, or gamma-aminobutyric acid, is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. GABA is synthesized in the brain by the decarblxylation of glutamate. At the cellular level, GABA enforces anticonvulsant, sedative, and anxiolytic effects.
GABA has been used to help elevate the mood, relieve anxiety, and relieve premenstrual sydrome. Orally, it has also been used to support blood pressure, the burning of fat, and lean muscle growth.
