Gaba Plus is a combined formula with Gaba, L-Theanine and 5HTP to help promote relaxation, ease nervous tension, and stress by supporting the nervous system and brain.
Gaba is a non-essential amino acid found in the human brain and eyes. It works to inhibit over-stimulation of the brain and help promote relaxation and ease nervous tension (1).
L-Theanine – a unique amino acid that has been discovered as the biologically active constituent of green tea, capable of improving focus and attention, especially in combination with caffeine (2,3).
5-Hyroxytryphtophan (5-HTP) – an amino acid that is the intermediate step between tryptophan and the important brain chemical, serotonin. The lifestyle and dietary practices of many people living in this stress-filled era result in lowered levels of serotonin within the brain. As a result, many people are overweight, crave sugar and other carbohydrates, experience bouts of depression, get frequent headaches, and have vague muscle aches and pains. All of these maladies are correctable by raising brain serotonin levels. The primary therapeutic applications for 5-HTP are as follows:
- Depression (4,5,6)
- Obesity (7)
- Migraine Headaches (8)
- Fibromyalgia (9,10)
- Withdrawal symptoms (11)
Gaba Plus should be taken as recommended by a Health Care Professional.
