Worries, problems, and uncertainty all produce anxiety and fear. This uncomfortable feeling is caused by a lack of GABA in the brain and in the central nervous system. GABA makes up for a lack of GABA, and calms and relaxes in a natural way.
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is the ultimate neurotransmitter for inner calm and relaxation of the brain and central nervous system. A lack of GABA can be caused by persistent worry, stress, uncertainty, or simply as a result of increasing age. This gives restlessness and anxiety the upper hand and may, at its worst, lead to panic attacks.
When we are confronted with threats, stress, and uncertainty, large amounts of the neurotransmitter glutamate are produced, which triggers a feeling of anxiety and agitation throughout our entire body.
GABA is the adversary of glutamate and is a natural calming agent in our body. Consequently, in the case of a GABA deficiency, the body remains in a permanent state of fear and anxiety due to an excess of glutamate.
When threatened, stressed and insecure, our body produces large amounts of the messenger substance glutamate, which triggers the feeling of fear and restlessness. GABA opposes glutamate and has a calming effect on the mind and body.
A persistent GABA deficiency combined with an excess of glutamate can lead to many symptoms such as anxiety, restlessness, stress, mood changes, sleep disorders, muscle tension, increased PMS symptoms, indigestion and constipation.
By adding GABA, the negative effects of glutamate are balanced and the body is balanced again. The feeling of fear and restlessness is reduced naturally.
Glycine is the second most common amino acid in our body and therefore has a major impact on many metabolic functions.
Glycine helps regulate nerve impulses throughout the body by balancing electrolytes such as calcium, chlorine, and potassium. In the nervous system, glycine acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter, i.e. as a messenger with an inhibitory effect. As such, it reduces the hyperactivity of nerve impulses in the brain and central nervous system. It ensures inner peace, reduces feelings of fear and aggression, reduces circles of thought and promotes falling asleep.
Glycine also improves mental performance by regulating the synthesis of certain nutrients that the brain and nerves need for energy. Glycine also helps to stabilize blood sugar levels and counteracts fatigue during the day.
A study conducted by the Japanese Society of Sleep Research has shown that glycine improves sleep quality, reduces daytime fatigue, and improves brain performance in terms of memory.
Glycine is also involved in the formation of glutathione, reduces the loss of collagen in the joints and in the skin, supports the healing of the intestinal mucosa, plays a role in the synthesis of red blood cells, supports healthy blood sugar, helps with fatigue, is on involved in the biosynthesis of creatine and promotes muscle building.
The amino acid L-theanine is obtained from green tea. It stimulates alpha waves in the brain and is also involved in the formation of the neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). L-Theanine thereby relaxes the mind and at the same time makes you more concentrated and attentive.
Magnesium is usually only associated with leg cramps. A magnesium deficiency can also lead to restlessness, poor concentration and memory, panic attacks, irritability, and sleep disorders and promotes the development of bad moods.
There is increasing evidence that chronic stress can lead to magnesium deficiency, which in turn leads to an increased susceptibility to stress. Long-term stress can drain the body's magnesium reserves and promote the development of anxiety.
Magnesium binds to GABA receptors and activates them. Magnesium is important among other things for the relaxation of the muscles, for the balance of the nervous system and for the production of serotonin.
Together with vitamin B6 and manganese, glutamic acid is a precursor for the formation of GABA in the brain. Therefore, a low manganese level can lead to a lack of GABA and promote the development of anxiety.
Manganese also helps stabilize blood sugar and prevent mood swings caused by low blood sugar.
GABA contains pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P-5-P), the activated form of vitamin B6. Only in this active form can vitamin B6 be transported in the blood and work together with other vital substances.
By taking active pyridoxal-5-phosphate, it is not necessary for the body to activate the various forms of vitamin B6, such as pyridoxal, pyridoxine, and pyridoxamine, to produce pyridoxal-5-phosphate. This means that pyridoxal-5-phosphate is immediately available and acts faster.
Problems converting from conventional Vitamin B6 can be excluded by taking activated pyridoxal-5-phosphate. This activation process can be restricted, for example, due to a lack of nutrients or enzyme defects, impaired liver function, as well as with autism or in the elderly.
As a coenzyme, vitamin B6 is involved in around 100 enzymatic metabolic processes. Among other things, vitamin B6 plays a decisive role in protein and energy metabolism, contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system, is involved in the production of the happiness hormone serotonin, ensures the formation of the red blood pigment and helps to keep homocysteine at bay.
Those who suffer from severe anxiety disorders or are taking antidepressants, psychotropic drugs, sleeping pills, sedatives or epileptic drugs, should take GABA only after consulting with a doctor. The reason is that the effect of the drugs could be enhanced by GABA and could lead to increased fatigue.
A key benefit of supplements is that they are usually free from side effects. GABA also usually has no side effects at the recommended dosage. Tiredness and side effects such as tingling under the skin, shortness of breath and an increased heartbeat can only occur with a higher dosage of more than 3000mg or with people who react very sensitively.
However, these symptoms are harmless and resolve themselves after a short time. In this case, we recommend halving the dose and, if necessary, slowly increasing it again at a later time. But as mentioned earlier, these symptoms are mainly dose-related.
