What is GABA?

GABA is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in your brain. It is our primary inhibitory neurotransmitter because it blocks, or inhibits, specific brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous system. This is why we call it “the calmer.” It gives us the ability to slow down and relax. Adequate GABA helps us cope with the demands of our busy lives.

What does optimal GABA function do for me?

  • Muscle Relaxation

  • Resilience: able to tolerate stressful events

  • Restful sleep

  • Organized and able to complete tasks

  • Calm, stable, and committed

  • Adequate filtering out of distracting stimuli 

What causes low GABA?

Substances that fire GABA (which means they are essentially making it so our body stops or slows down its production of it because it’s being done for us) are alcohol, marijuana, certain foods like sugar and starches, tobacco, and benzodiazepines like Ativan, Xanax, and Valium. These things, in turn, can cause low GABA levels. Other things that can cause low GABA are:

  • Trauma and Stress – both past and Present

  • Not enough sleep

  • Poor diet

  • Lack of Support

  • Lack of B6, zinc, and magnesium

Low GABA levels are linked to tremors, seizures, and convulsions; chronic substance use – primarily benzodiazepines, alcohol, and marijuana; digestive problems such as IBS, feelings of stress or agitation, tight muscles, and restless sleep.

How can I increase GABA?

Cardiovascular exercise has been shown to Increase GABA along with GABA-supporting supplements, stress management, breathing, meditation, massage, and more!
