Anxiety is a disorder that affects more than 20 million Americans. It can present as feelings of irrational fear, worry, and dread - or manifest physically with a racing heart, frantic thoughts and shortness of breath. Even without an anxiety disorder, many people struggle to manage stress in their personal and professional lives.
GABA is a neurotransmitter that facilitates the calming, parasympathetic response of the nervous system. Supplementing with GABA may be especially helpful for those prone to worry, anxiety, and over-thinking. Fortunately, taking GABA does not cause drowsiness, and actually improves cognition. It can be taken during the day for calming focus, or at night to relieve unwelcome mental chatter.
