PharmaGABA VET 60c
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a major neurotransmitter that is widely distributed throughout the central nervous system. Because too much daily excitation can lead to irritability, restlessness, sleeplessness, and spasmodic movements, this excitation needs to be balanced with inhibition. GABA - the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain - can provide this inhibition, acting like a brake during times of runaway stress. In addition, clinical studies also indicate GABA can promote relaxation and enhance sleep.
ThenaturalGABAinThorneVet'sPharmaGABAVETisproduced via a fermentation process that utilizes Lactobacillus hilgardii, the bacteria that is used to ferment vegetables in the prepara- tion of the traditional Korean cabbage dish known as kimchi. Clinical studies show this natural form of GABA can increase the production of alpha-waves in the brain, creating a sense of phys- ical relaxation while maintaining mental focus. In contrast, the brain's stress-related beta-waves are decreased. In addition to a positive change in brain waves, natural PharmaGABA has been shown to produce relaxation, as evidenced by reduced pupil di- ameter, heart rate, and two natural markers of stress - salivary cortisol and chromogranin A. In a head-to-head, double-blind trial of natural PharmaGABA versus synthetic GABA, synthetic GABA did not demonstrate these positive effects.
