Everyday stress is a normal part of modern living. Job pressures, family arguments, financial pressures, traffic, and time management are just a few of the stressors we face on a daily basis. However, excessive or accumulated stress can be overwhelming, leading to feelings of nervousness, anxiety, and insomnia. Fortunately, there is Stress-Relax 100% Natural GABA – a safe and effective natural remedy.
100% Natural GABA is the natural form of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) that is manufactured from glutamic acid produced by Lactobacillus hilgardii (the friendly bacteria used to ferment vegetables in the preparation of the traditional Korean dish known as kimchi).
GABA is often viewed as the brain’s “braking system” because when we become overwhelmed with stress and anxiety the brain typically responds by producing more GABA. This, in essence slows down inhibitory neurotransmissions by applying the GABA “brakes”. It’s no wonder that as the most abundant neurotransmitter in the brain, GABA regulates nervousness and anxiety by inhibiting (calming) excitatory neurotransmitter activity. This is an important mechanism because too many excitatory signals can lead to anxiety, insomnia, seizures, and other conditions. However it appears that many people with anxiety and insomnia do not manufacture sufficient levels of GABA.
GABA’s foremost mechanism of action is increasing the production of alpha brain waves (associated with a relaxed yet alert state) and decreasing production of beta brain waves (associated with nervousness, scattered thoughts, and hyperactivity). This leads to improved relaxation without drowsiness and enhanced mental focus. In circumstances where stress is extreme, as with phobias and fears, GABA can provide a quick fix. There are other nutrients that can increase alpha brain waves, such as L-Theanine, however, the effects of GABA are more powerful. GABA increases alpha brain waves 2.5 times more than L-Theanine. L-Theanine is a good first choice for mild to moderate nervousness, whereas GABA is appropriate for more severe stress.
