Can an herbal supplement have a 'calming' influence on the brain and serve as a natural 'tranquilizer'? GABA supplements have been used for anxiety because it is reputed to block nerve impulses. GABA supplements have been described as having 'the opposite effect of a double espresso". This calming action would be beneficial in the case of anxiety and panic attacks, headaches and other conditions. Some clinical studies have concluded that GABA increases HGH (human growth hormone) levels when taken before exercise (see below for detailed information). It is believed that Passionflower and Valerian increase levels of GABA in the brain. Remedy's Passionflower Tincture and Valerian Tincture provide an alternate way of supplementing GABA for those who want an all-natural supplement. Remedy's GABA Clam is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease.
GABA is an amino acid and is also known as Gamma-Amino Butyric Acid. It acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, and is t used traditionally to improve mood and lessen anxiety.
