GABA and Anxiety

GABA and Anxiety

 This neurotransmitter is affected by Avipaxin, LoraQuil, Taurine, and Nuvoxil

Every feelings, emotion and state of mind originate in the brain. When the nerve cells are sending too many messages to each other, it usually manifests in the body as anxiety. This is when we feel unpleasant and think that something is wrong. The exact cause of the anxiety is usually unidentified or not explicitly understood by the one experiencing it. In mild cases, anxiety can help a person focus on the task at hand. However, moderate to severe anxiety can cause restlessness, loss of concentration, irritability, palpitations, rapid heartbeat and respirations, and other associated symptoms.


The body, being a complex interconnection of different systems, can resolve most of the simple problems on its own. For anxiety and other similar conditions, the brain produces a neurotransmitter called gamma-aminobutyric acid or GABA to neutralize the hyperactive brain cells thus relieving anxiety.

The brain works by sending signals to each other. This mechanism is efficient in controlling many functions of the  body. However, if they send too many signals at the same time, the brain gets too agitated and results in anxiety and other  similar conditions. In response, the brain releases the neurotransmitter GABA. This inhibitory brain chemical binds with specific receptors at the synapses or the endings of the brain cells to lessen the brain cell activities. GABA, being the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter, is also associated with the production of endorphins, or the so-called happy hormones. This helps produce a calm feeling and a sense of well-being.


While GABA is produced naturally, some people who have deficiency or who are already suffering from anxiety or schizophrenia are prescribed GABA supplements. Self-medicating is not advised since the artificial GABA may cause side effects including anxiety. It is better to consult a physician before taking any supplements especially if you are taking other medications or have metabolic problems.
