GABA – Powder, 100g
Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter with central nervous system inhibitory activity. GABA, converted from the principal excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate in the brain, plays a role in regulating neuronal excitability by binding to its receptors, GABA-A and GABA-B
Gamma-aminobutyric acid is a gamma-amino acid that is butanoic acid with the amino substituent located at C-4. It has a role as a signalling molecule, a human metabolite, a Saccharomyces cerevisiae metabolite and a neurotransmitter. It is a gamma-amino acid and a monocarboxylic acid. It derives from a butyric acid. It is a conjugate acid of a gamma-aminobutyrate. It is a tautomer of a gamma-aminobutyric acid zwitterion.
What is GABA?
GABA or gamma-Aminobutyric acid, or γ-aminobutyric acid is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and is typically found in the brain, stomach, intestines, ovaries, kidneys, liver, bladder, and lungs but is also produced synthetically as a supplement. Its principal role is reducing neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system. It has been traditionally thought that exogenous GABA (i.e. taken as a supplement) doesn’t cross the blood-brain barrier, however data obtained from more current research indicates that it may be possible.
GABA Benefits and Uses
Studies have shown that GABA may have the following benefits:
- Promotes a positive mood and feelings of wellbeing
- Promotes feelings of tranquility and calm
- Supports healthy sleep patterns
- Promotes healthy and clear skin
- May support memory and cognitive function
Additional Information on GABA
GABA is primarily synthesized from glutamate via the enzyme glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) with pyridoxal phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6) as a cofactor. This process converts glutamate (the principal excitatory neurotransmitter) into GABA (the principal inhibitory neurotransmitter).GABA can also be synthesized from putrescine by diamine oxidase and aldehyde dehydrogenase.
