GABA Boosters is a class of preparations that aim to increase the concentration of gamma-aminobutyric acid in the body. They may contain synthetic gamma-aminobutyric acid or substances that promote its endogenous synthesis. Supplements in this category show anti-stress and gentle calming effect. They stabilize the nervous system functions, reduce anxiety-depressive states, promote good sleep. They also show nootropic properties.
GABA, i.e. gamma-aminobutyric acid, is a compound from the group of non-protein amino acids. In the human body, it is synthesized from glutamic acid. It belongs to the inhibitory neurotransmitters, and its main task is to balance the activity of glutamate, which, in turn, shows stimulating properties. The low GABA level correlates with feelings of anxiety, depressed mood, and insomnia. It may also manifest with a tendency to reach for stimulants or a tendency to binge under stress.
Our offer includes a wide selection of supplements containing synthetic gamma-aminobutyric acid. We also recommend preparations that contain substances that have the ability to increase the levels of GABA or bind to its receptors. They work equally effectively, and very often they also have some additional pro-health or pro-cognitive properties.
It is also worth considering preparations that combine gamma-aminobutyric acid and compounds that act synergistically with it, such as, e.g., L-theanine or adaptogens. They may turn to be useful during periods of chronic stress – they strengthen the psychophysical condition and naturally help to regain mental peace and balance.
