Featured Supplement – GABA

Amino acids are protein substances your body uses to make key brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. Low levels of the neurotransmitters – serotonin, dopamine, endorphins and GABA often precede alcoholism or are depleted once overuse of alcohol begins. GABA (Gamma Amino Butyric Acid) is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter. When GABA levels are high, you feel relaxed and calm.

Many drinkers use alcohol for its calming effects, however, it is short lived and once the effects of alcohol wear off, anxiety returns full force. Supplementing with GABA stops anxiety in its tracks. Some researchers say that GABA also helps to stop cravings.
