Help Fight Stress with Now Food’s GABA Calming Supplement
GABA is the shortened word for Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid whose role as a brain neurotransmitter is wide, varied, and very useful. It is a naturally occurring and produced amino acid in the body that helps in easing nervous tension as well as the promotion of relaxation. What is a neurotransmitter you ask? Remember that the brain is the command center of the body, and without signals from the brain, our body is basically in a vegetative state. So, the way for the brain to communicate to specific and various parts of the body is through signals carried by different neurotransmitters.
