What Are GABA Supplements?

Read Transcript

GABA is an actual neurotransmitter, and this is one I have asked patients to take many times when I know that their core issue is anxiety, and maybe agitation. GABA will help to kind of balance the nervous system, helps to little bit with cortisol balance as well, so really again induces that relaxation state.

GABA is debated in terms of dosing, but the average starting dose of GABA is 250mg, but most people needing up to 500mg. It usually is taken in a pill form, I have seen GABA powders then GABA drinks, somethings like that, but usually it's in a pill form.
