Raw Powders™ offers pure GABA capsules!What is GABA?GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a key neurotransmitter in the brain responsible for inducing a more relaxed mental state. It works by reversing the “fight or flight” stress response.When we’re stressed, neurotransmitters stimulate electrical activity in the brain — causing us to feel awake and agitated. This is called the fight or flight response because it helps us tackle the cause of stress head-on (such as coming face to face with a hungry animal), or run away to safety.Once the cause of stress is eliminated, compounds such as GABA step up to reverse the changes and return the body to a normal, more relaxed state.Why GABA?The body naturally produces GABA to reverse stress and anxiety — however, many people today suffer from ongoing stress. The body never has a chance to shut down the stress response.Supplemental GABA is used to push the body towards this more relaxed state.For optimal benefit, combine GABA supplements with other diet and lifestyle changes. Focus on finding the cause of stress and taking measures to improve it. Spend time doing breathing exercises or meditation, and ensure you’re getting a full 8 to 9 hours of sleep each night.When we’re stressed, hormones like cortisol divert energy from processes that aren’t immediately necessary to manage the stressful situation — such as digestive and white blood cell function.By reversing the stress response, GABA indirectly promotes digestive function, host defence, and more.WARNING:If you are pregnant or lactating, consult a health care professional before using this product.
