Have you ever heard of GABA?
Your brain is making this chemical as you’re reading this.
GABA is another neurotransmitter that is found in the brain (and the gut), that is known to modulate one’s anxiety, stress and tension.
If your GABA levels are low, you might be in trouble…
There can be many reasons why...
Things like chronic stress, lockdown (Aoun, 2021), nutrient deficiencies, MSG, and acute caffeine intake decrease the production of GABA.
In result, your negative thoughts increase. The worst part is – you don’t know how to avoid them.
When GABA is released by one nerve cell it suppresses the activities of other cells to which it is connected. Researchers found that people who had the highest concentrations of GABA in their brain’s hippocampus (or memory hub), had a better ability to block unwanted, intrusive thoughts or memories. (Schmitz, et al. 2017)
You have to increase your GABA levels. Here’s what increases the production of GABA…
· Alcohol (not sustainable, leads to low GABA in the long run)
· Taurine (sustainable)
· Glutamine + B6 (sustainable)
· L-Theanine (sustainable)
This is just the tip of the iceberg. I dig into this more in my Cosmetic Neurology Masterclass.
GABA is incredibly important for modulating one’s mood and emotional responses.
Millions of people are experiencing the negative effects of low GABA levels without knowing how to help themselves. But it can be supported through lifestyle and nootropics.
