This product combines GABA, an amino acid with natural calming actions, with several other nutrients that work together to support normal mood function. By supporting the activity of certain brain neurotransmitters (chemical messengers), the nutrients in this formula help maintain normal brain function.†
• GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system that is critical for normal brain function. As an inhibitory neurotransmitter, GABA helps prevent over-firing of nerve cells by blocking the transmission of an impulse from one cell to another in the central nervous system. GABA may promote a sense of tranquility in individuals who are over-anxious or agitated.†
• L-Glycine, an amino acid used by the body to build proteins, enhances the activity of neurotransmitters in the brain that are involved in memory and cognition. Glycine is a non-essential amino acid with a simple structure that can normally be synthesized in the body and is readily used in the formation of proteins, nucleic acids, and other amino acids. Glycine also appears to exert several protective effects on inflammatory cells to suppress the formation of free radicals and inflammatory cytokines.†
• Inositol, a substance related to B vitamins, helps regulate release of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that affects mood and behavior. Inositol is required for proper formation of cell membranes and an important messenger in our body’s neuro-communication system. Inositol also triggers other cell functions related to glucose and fat metabolism.†
• Taurine is an amino acid compound that helps regulate heartbeat, maintain cell membrane stability, and prevent brain cell over-activity. The ability of taurine to help modulate calcium levels in cells, stabilize membranes, and restore antioxidant enzymes account for many of its beneficial actions.†
This dietary supplement can be taken to help support balanced mood function and exert a calming influence during times of stress.†
