This natural formula contains the necessary precursors and cofactors for optimal GABA availability.


GABA is a neurotransmitter which acts like a “brake” to keep excitation in check. Too much excitation can lead to irritability, restlessness, and sleep disruption to name a few. GABA’s role as the main inhibitory neurotransmitter helps provide this function in the human body.

GABA is what is known as a self-inhibiting compound. This means, when you take more GABA than your body needs, it blocks its own transport into the brain to maintain constant, normal GABA concentrations. To circumvent this mechanistic limitation, we included the ingredients L-Citrulline, Rosmarinic Acid, and Grape Seed Extract. These natural ingredients work synergistically to both increase GABA’s transport into the brain and work to sustain elevated concentrations of GABA.

The main challenge in increasing brain levels of GABA via supplementation is circumventing the molecule’s inherent self-inhibiting characteristic. It is suggested that increasing GABA’s permeability across the blood-brain barrier is an effective target to increase brain levels of GABA. One way to do this is to increase vasodilation by upregulating nitric oxide (NO) production in the body.

L-citrulline is a precursor to the amino acid, L-Arginine, which has a potent effect on stimulating NO production. Additionally, grape seed extract has been shown to increase the production of Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase (eNOS), an enzyme used to generate NO from L-Arginine.

Once GABA is made more permeable and able to freely cross the blood-brain barrier with increased NO production, it is naturally broken down by the enzyme GABA-Transaminase (GABA-T). To attenuate the degradation of GABA by GABA-T we incorporated rosmarinic acid into our formulation, which has an inhibitory effect on GABA-T, thus allowing for sustained, elevated levels of GABA in the brain for a longer period of time.

GABA

Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter with central nervous system (CNS) inhibitory activity. Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), converted from the principal excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate in the brain, plays a role in regulating neuronal excitability by binding to its receptors, GABA-A and GABA-B, and thereby causing ion channel opening, hyperpolarization and eventually inhibition of neurotransmission. [1]

GABA acts to slow down signals between neurons, making neurons less electrically excitable. [2]

Studies also show that It plays a role in neuronal stem cell differentiation, possibly giving it an important role in adult brain plasticity. [3]

L-Citrulline

Recently, research showed that with an increase in nitric oxide, GABA could more easily cross the blood brain barrier. Nitric oxide also causes GABA release in the hippocampus [4]. In a recent study, GABA supplementation by itself increased brain GABA 33%, but when combined with L-arginine, a stimulator of nitric oxide, brain GABA rose 383.3%. [5]

We chose to use L-Citrulline as the NO-booster in GABA Brain Food because it has been shown to be a more effective NO booster than L-Arginine [6,7,8,9]

Rosmarinic Acid

Rosmarinic acid, present in rosemary, lemon balm, and other herbal agents known for their calming properties, inhibits GABA-transaminase, which slows the breakdown of GABA [10]

Grape Seed Extract

Grape Seed Extract can also upregulate the eNOS enzyme for a further boost to nitric oxide [11]

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) is currently supporting research and studies on other potential abilities of grape seed extract to support healthy cellular function. [12]



02/ Ingredients

GABA(633 mg)

As the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, GABA’s role is to act like a “brake” and balance excessive stimulation. GABA is associated with normal restful sleep, relaxation, tranquil thoughts, and a serenity of mind.

L-Citruline(500mg)

An amino acid found in foods like watermelon, dairy, beef and pork. L-Citrulline is converted into L-arginine, a known nitric oxide booster, which is theorized to help shuttle GABA into the brain across the blood-brain barrier.

Rosemary Extract(333mg)

Found in rosemary, sage, mint and basil, rosmarinic acid is a naturally occurring polyphenol flavonoid. It is also found in lemon balm and is used in aromatherapy to promote feelings of calm and relaxation.

Grape Seed Extract(33mg)

Similar to L-citrulline, grape seed extract is used to increase nitric oxide production to help GABA pass across the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain.

03/ Suggested Use

Take a serving of 1 or 2 capsules as needed, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

U.S.A. manufactured in a cGMP facility. Natural Stacks proudly uses only the highest quality ingredients.

S-L-E-E-P!

Finally, a Gaba that works!! I take two of these along with 3 MagTech's about an hour before bed. I get super relaxed and drowsy and can fall asleep much easier than I would otherwise. Also, the best part, is that I basically stay asleep the whole night, and feel more rested in a shorter amount of time. I assume that I'm falling into a deeper sleep for a longer period, but that's just my guess. Whatever the reason, it works, and I'm thrilled! Note: I have purchased Gaba from health food stores in powder form and mixed with drinks, etc and took it in the evening. It usually gave me a headache, and did nothing else, so I was very hesitant to try Gaba Brain Food, thinking that it would do the same thing. That's why I said finally a Gaba that works! It produces the result for me that I hear so many other people use Gaba for.

Anxiety and Panic Disorder

I have suffered from panic disorder and anxiety since I was 18. I am 36 now. I have gone through three "crashes". What I mean by a crash is, I am fine for a time and then BOOM. I get a barrage of panic attacks and anxiety. Just recently back in 2014 I had the third crash and I vowed to find out the reason for this. I had read that a deficiency in GABA is most likely the cause for over excited neural activity in the brain. GABA aims to bring order to your brain.

I have only taking it for two weeks and I gotta say, there's something there. I feel like my symptoms are muffled in intensity. What I mean by "muffled" is that the symptoms are there but less intense. I hope this continues to work for me as I know I am running near or at 0 GABA, yeah its that bad. Panic attack after panic attack.

Solution to mind racing thoughts and emotional reactivity

I had no idea that there were solutions that could help reduce mind racing, ruminating thoughts and emotional reactivity. After completing a master's degree in substance abuse and mental health counseling, I began to learn about neurotransmitters. "GABA is the brake and Glutamate is the gas" my professor told us. It took awhile to figure out that GABA was the key to slowing down the speed thoughts are transmitted in my brain. The key to reducing mind racing is to slow down the speed that electrical travel between nerve endings in the brain. I have been making progress using EFT "Tapping" but I had to do it three or four times a day. I have been tapping for a year now and the mind racing was better but I wasn't cured. My son also began to tell me about his mind racing and I started to pursue GABA options. I tried these first starting in January. After a month, I have not tapped to see what they do on their own. I take one in the morning and one in the evening. I have been more emotionally stable than I have ever been. Racing thoughts have slowed to normal range and I can process information better. I can also stop before emotions get out of control. I am a believer and will be using this produce for the count. Hope it works for you like it did for me because my mind was making my life chaos.

Miracle for me

I had been taking Ambien for over 15 years. I started going to a new physician who refused to refill the Rx so I was forced to find other options. Anyone who has come off of Ambien knows the road ahead is not easy. I tried everything (trying to remain more natural as I did not want to return to taking another prescribed drug.) In my research, I realized that GABA might be my issue (or lack of it). I found your compound and I can't tell you how thankful I am. Sleep is now something I look forward to...which had not been the case for many years! I started with 3 each night for the first few weeks and now trying to cut back to see if a lower dose is as effective.
