Gamma Amino Butyric Acid or, GABA, is an amino acid which acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. It inhibits transmission of nerve impulses in the brain producing a calming effect on your nerves. As a supplement, it is sold and promoted as a natural tranquilizer. It is popular among bodybuilders because it increases the supply of human growth hormones in the body.
GABA is used to block the transmission of an impulse from one cell to another in the central nervous system. It can be used to calm a person, much like tranquilizers, but without the possibility of addiction. It relaxes your muscles and dramatically reduces tension and stress. It also treats people who have epilepsy and hypertension and those who have history of manic depression and acute agitation.
