A GABA Supplement Review
Dr. Eric Braverman stated that personalities with dominant GABA natures account for over 50% of the population. Typically a GABA natured person is a team player and enjoys team or group activities. They are generally dependable, organized and on top of things. They also are seen as sociable, pleasant to be around and know how to remain calm during chaotic times. GABA natures don’t normally have excessive mood swings, are not prone to getting strung out or having extreme reactions that affect them emotionally in a negative way.
Doctors and researchers are discovering a low level of GABA can be the primary cause for many disorder relating to irritability, stress, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia, high blood pressure, lethargy, obesity and general “un-wellness”.
Blake Graham – a renown clinical nutritionist explained some of the reasons that cause our bodies to have a low level of GABA. These include –
• a glutamine shortage (the GABA precursor)
• vitamins B1 and B6 deficiencies
• low levels of manganese, zinc and iron
• being overly stressed
• prolonged pain
• lack of sleep
• hormone progesterone deficiency
• overly exposed to lead and mercury excesses
• excessive alcohol or withdrawing from drinking a lot of alcohol
• high caffeine intake
• being exposed to high electromagnetic radiation
• prolonged loud noise
The need for providing supplements for low GABA levels is becoming more obvious. While the body can and does produce GABA, providing additional GABA via a GABA supplement can aid in the body’s fight against the negative symptoms brought on by a GABA deficiency.
GABA supplements supply your brain with the raw materials required for your body to effectively increase its GABA levels. Increased GABA levels are very effective in bringing a calm and relaxed mood and feeling to your body and mind when your brain is sending signals of excitement and intensity. It can help to bring a proper balance between your emotions, your mind and your physical body and then maintain this even during seemingly intense or worrisome times. Being overly anxious, nervous as well as feeling depressed and stressed out are all emotional states of mind. And even though we all experience these excess emotions to one degree or another throughout our lives, there are sometimes extreme situations that need help. A GABA supplement is a good choice in such a situation and is safer, and even more effective in most cases, than benzodiazepine drugs such a valium.
There are many GABA supplements on the market today and they come in many forms, including drinks, foods, cream, tablets, sweets etc. Aside from manufactured supplements, there are some natural forms of GABA in foods such as GABA tea, sprouted brown rice and melon juice. The Japanese have long been proponents of GABA. They discovered GABA tea over 20 years ago and also recently developed GABA rice (sprouted brown rice), which have become two of the main natural sources of GABA.
Examples of Gaba Supplements
Here are some examples of GABA supplements available on the market today.
This is just a little sampling of the huge variety or GABA based or GABA
supplemented products available for consumers interested in finding
ways to increase their GABA levels using everyday products. Some of
these products are produced primarily in Japan and you may not be able
to find them at your local supermarket or department store, although
many of the pharmaceutical products are available in the US and European
GABA tea is particularly common in Japan and is almost a part of their daily stable diet. It is starting to become more readily available in Western countries as people become more aware of its amazing health properties. GABA tea not only has a high concentration of GABA, but this combined with the already existing health properties in Oolong tea such as anti-oxidants, makes for it to be one of the best natural health drinks available. It can be purchased on line at various Chinese tea sites such as Zi Chun Tea Co.
