What is GABA?

GABA is an amino acid formally known as Gamma-aminobutyric asid. GABA is widely found in animals and plants (such as germ cell of the seeds; sprouted brown rice, blades of grass such as leaves of tea and Japanese radish). It's a natural part of the human daily diet. GABA is one of the neurotransmitters located in the central nerve system in the brain, spinal cord, and in the peripheral nerves in the intestine. GABA is the most abundant inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. GABA appears to improve the blood circulation, increasing oxygen utilisation, thus increasing brain metabolism, GABA is also put to practical use as a medicine in the treatment for cerebral stroke, after head injury, chronic headaches and for treatment of depression after treatment of cerebral retinopathy. GABA might help inducing relaxation and sleep.
