Physiology of GABA

There are 11 non-essential amino acids.  Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is one of the those amino acids.  Non-essential amino acids are those amino acids that are naturally produced by the body.  However, as the aging process occurs, the body’s ability to manufacture sufficient levels of non-essential amino acids is reduced.  Therefore, supplementation may be a good option.  Products that act as allosteric modulators of GABA receptors increase the available amount of GABA which typically causes a relaxing, anti-anxiety, and anti-convulsive effect.  GABA does not cross the blood brain barrier.

 GABA enhances the the breakdown of serotonin into N-acetylserotonin, the precursor of melatonin.  Research suggest that GABA is involved in the synthesis of melatonin; thus regulating the sleep wake cycle.

Side Effects GABA

As long as it is consumed in the recommended doses, GABA is considered safe. Taking more than the recommended amount may result in:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Tingling in patches all over the body
  • Numbness of the mouth
  • Nausea
  • In rare cases, GABA has been responsible for brain chemistry imbalance causing isolated seizures. This is very rare. Because GABA is an amino acid, it is important to remember that supplementing this will have an effect on the levels of other amino acids in the body.
