Here is a little bit of information I have found on your diet aid. Just remember dear, and I am sure that you already know, but most of these diet aids are not FDA approved, and very little testing if any is ever done concerning the "results" they are trying to sell you...In fact what you will usually see is..."Results Not Typical".
GABA is a non-essential amino acid which functions as an inhibitory calming neurotransmitter in your brain. It is found in high concentrations only in your brain & eyes. It can be derived from protein foods or manufactured in your body from glutamic acid.
GABA is usually deficient in both clinical & experimentally induced seizures. Low levels of GABA promote excitatory neurotransmitters. Low GABA levels have been found in the brains of patients with multiple sclerosis, action tremors, tardive dyskinesia, & other disorders of movement. Low GABA levels have been found in panic, anxiety, depression, alcoholism, & bipolar disorders.
Vitamin B6, manganese, taurine, & lysine can increase the synthesis & effects of GABA.
Potential uses of GABA :
- May reduce symptoms of alcohol withdrawal.
- May reduce symptoms of anxiety.
- May help some schizophrenics.
- May help to reduce high blood pressure.
- May increase the effect of insulin so is useful for diabetics but not for hypoglycemia.
- May suppress appetite.
- May help with premenstrual symptoms.
- Helpful for some cases of depression.
DIRECTIONS: No more than 1 capsule at a time up to 2-3 times daily with at least 5 hr intervals between doses. Take on an empty stomach, but with 1 pyridoxal-5-phosphate, and do not take with alcohol.
