Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in your brain. Neurotransmitters function as chemical messengers. GABA is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it blocks, or inhibits, certain brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous system.
When GABA attaches to a protein in your brain known as a GABA receptor, it produces a calming effect.
As a result of these properties, GABA has also become a popular supplement in recent years. This is partly because it isn’t available from many food sources. The only foods that contain GABA are fermented ones, such as kimchi, miso, and tempeh.
When GABA attaches to a protein in your brain known as a GABA receptor, it produces a calming effect. This can help with feelings of anxiety, stress, and fear. It may also help to prevent seizures.
Amino acids are included in the building of muscles and cells. There are 20 amino acids of importance to human biochemistry. The 8 of them are called essential amino acids. The individual amino acids are each vital nutrients, which are crucial for the body's growth, regeneration, including wound healing, immune systems and the production of enzymes and hormones. It's important to supplement with amino acids, since the body can not produce them in sufficient quantities.
The amino acids are formed in the plant world and the lower forms of life. We need to get them through our food, since we don't produce them ourselves. They do this by ingesting and breaking down the food proteins. The individual proteins are built up as a complex network of hundreds of amino acids that are connected in basic units called peptides. Two amino acids link to a dipeptide, three to a tripeptide, four to one tetrapeptide, and many amino acids linked to form a polypeptide. Numerous polypeptides together form a protein. Also, our food proteins have this structure of a dense and complicated network consisting of a very large number of amino acids.
However, in order for the organism to be able to utilize the amino acids bound to the protein, it is crucial that they are completely released from each other. A prerequisite for achieving this is that we are able to completely digest the protein we consume so that it completely decomposes to its molecular constituents, i.e. the amino acids. With a few exceptions, only free amino acids can be absorbed and utilized by the organism.

One of my favorites is GABA which I have been using for many months now. GABA gives me a calm, reduces my anxiety and has a feeling of it just puts a damper on thought crowds.
I am very happy with the product :)
