GABA OUR CALMING NEUROTRANSMITTER
Staying and being calm through these turbulent months has most certainly been a challenge.
It is more important than ever that you empower yourself as you navigate these times. My goal is to help and provide knowledge so you can be the best version of yourself, have good health, feel more in control, and learn how the body works.
We are coming into the last part of 2020 and this is a good time to let go of the past 9 months and move forward, feeling re-energized and re-focused on what is truly important: Your Health!
I like to call it energetic alignment. We could all use less stress, more energy, more calm and better quality sleep right?
With so many families taking about anxiety and depression right now, I wanted talk about GABA our calming neurotransmitter.
WHAT IS GABA?
Our mental state is governed in large part by a unique cocktail of neurotransmitter chemicals in the brain—one of which is GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). GABA is essentially your body’s “calm down” signal, pumping the brakes on overexcited neurons, contributing to an overall relaxing effect. However, various lifestyle and genetic factors can throw GABA out of whack, leading to serious disruptions in physical and mental health. In fact, abnormal GABA levels have been implicated in anxiety, insomnia, depression, epilepsy, and more.
