GABA - The Tranquil Molecule Keeping Us Calm

What is GABA?

GABA is the abbreviated name of Gamma Amino Butyric Acid, which is the body's major relaxing, calming and tranquillising neurotransmitter. GABA's primary role is to balance the action of the excitatory neurotransmitters; Glutamate, Adrenaline, Histamine and Acetylcholine. GABA helps nerve cells recover after sending or receiving transmissions making it one of the body's most significant mood modulators.

GABA acts via receptors to reduce the excitability in nerve transmissions. It successfully filters out irrelevant messages or static by terminating the signals from the excitatory neurotransmitter. GABA is effectively the braking system of all neurotransmitters.

Symptoms of Low GABA

For the human body to function correctly, there needs to be a balance between the excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters. If the brain has too many excitatory transmissions, it means that GABA levels are low, which can lead to a variety of  adverse health conditions including;

ADHD Insomnia
Alcoholism Low Digestive Enzymes
Anxiety Mood Disorders
Bi-Polar Disorder Motion Sickness
Convulsions Nervousness
Depression Panic Attacks
Digestive Disorders Racing Mind
Feeling Overwhelmed Seizures
Hypertension Tourettes Syndrome

Symptoms of High GABA

High levels of GABA result in a calming action that may contribute to sluggish energy, feelings of sedation and foggy thinking. These symptoms are similar to someone who has overdosed on Benzodiazepines or consumed far too much alcohol. Adverse effects include;

Anaesthesia Nausea
Drowsiness Poor Memory
Impaired Learning Sedation
