GABA for Anxiety

The holidays are over, but that doesn’t stop many from the feelings of long-term anxiety.  Anxiety disorders affect around 40 million Americans that are over the age of 18.  GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a natural supplement that aids people who suffer from anxiety.  GABA is an amino acid that acts as a neurotransmitter to the brain to help reduce stress and anxiety by decreasing activity in the brain.  By reducing activity, it is allowing the brain to slow down and just relax.  [1]

Recommended doses of GABA for anxiety disorders are around 500mg two to three times daily, but see your doctor first, as GABA does interfere with other medications.
