First let’s start with what a neurotransmitter is. It is a chemical messenger that carries, boosts and modulates signals between neurons and other cells in the body. Sometimes neurotransmitters need some help. That is where amino acids come into the picture. Gaba is the amino acid that promotes relaxation and sleep. It helps balances the area of excitement and inhibition in the brain. This balance helps to relax and calm an addicts behavior and reactions to stress. It inhibits nerve transmission in the brain, calming nervous activity. As a supplement it is sold and promoted for these neurotransmitter effects as a natural tranquilizer. Gaba is an amino acid which acts as a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system.
Ever hear of Human growth hormone? It is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction and regeneration in humans and other animals. This hormone is synthesized, stored, and secreted by cells within anterior pituitary gland. It also helps to regulate body composition, body fluids, muscle and bone growth, sugar and fat metabolism, and possibly heart function. Gaba stimulates the gland therefore helps to produce higher levels of the human growth hormone. This can help heal the addicts body from damage that has occurred while drinking and abusing drugs. These can be excellent benefits to the addict once they begin the journey of recovery.
Rehabs across the country have been using Gaba to help aid in withdrawal. Once someone is past the withdrawal process they will need to continue to take the amino acid Gaba to aid in recovery. To conclude, Gaba’s been shown to keep an addict calm. By using Gaba the addict can rest better. If suffering from anxiety this amino acid lowers the level and promotes a stress free lifestyle.
