GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid)
GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) is widely distributed in plants, animals and microorganisms. GABA acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system which is responsible for sleep, relaxation, and sedation. Its natural function is to reduce the activity of the neurons to which it binds. GABA inhibits nerve transmission in the brain, calming nervous activity. This can make a person feel more tranquil and give him or her sense of wellbeing. Without GABA, nerve cells fire too often and too easily. GABA hinders the transmission of nerve impulses from one neuron to another. It has a calming or quieting influence.
