Overview

GABA: if there ever was a “feel-good” amino acid, this is it.

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is an amino acid plays an important role in regulating the activity of nerve cells. It is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and in the retina, and can also be excitatory under some circumstances.

As a supplement, GABA has received less attention from medical researchers than it deserves. Some usages of GABA are supported by clinical studies, but many interesting and valid applications have never been investigated scientifically.

GABA supplementation has been shown to be effective for:

  • stimulating the pituitary gland to secrete more Human Growth Hormone
  • Increasing protein synthesis in brain, muscle, and liver
  • inducing relaxation
  • reducing anxiety
  • enhancing immunity during stress
  • reducing high blood pressure
  • increasing blood insulin levels.

In addition, the following actions are suggested by indirect scientific evidence:

  • improve schizophrenic symptoms
  • promote loss of excess body fat
  • build muscle.

As for GABA usages that have not been investigated scientifically, we have reports from users to support these applications:

  • anti-aging: making users look and feel youthful and energetic
  • improving the skin, darkening the hair
  • inducing sleep and improving its quality
  • causing more interesting, vivid dreaming
  • diminishing arthritis pain and lower back pain
  • reducing symptoms of alcohol withdrawal
  • controlling hypoglycemia
  • suppressing appetite
  • reducing premenstrual symptoms
  • alleviating some types of depression.

Read GABA Monograph

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is an amino acid that does not get incorporated into proteins, but instead plays an important role in regulating the activity of nerve cells. It is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system and in the retina, and can also be excitatory under some circumstances.1

GABA is closely related to another biomolecule called GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyrate); GABA and GHB are interconvertible in the brain. GHB was a very useful and inexpensive supplement for promoting relaxation and sleep until it was foolishly banned in the U.S. and other countries as part of the fiasco known as the ‘War-On-Drugs’. GHB, unlike GABA, readily crosses the blood-brain barrier; once in the brain, GHB is converted into GABA which then calms over-excited nerves. Since GABA crosses the blood-brain barrier less easily than GHB, larger doses are required to achieve the same goals.

The Wikipedia offers a good overview of GABA and its actions in the body.2 A less technical review from IronMagazine3 is also useful despite its uncritical acceptance of government-spawned propaganda about GHB.

What we can’t tell you

In the U.S. and some other industrialized countries, government agencies like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have adopted censorship as a method for intensifying their control over the supplement industry and its customers. Thus, FDA regulations prohibit us from telling you that any of our products are effective as medical treatments, even if they are, in fact, effective.

Accordingly, we will limit our discussion of GABA to a brief summary of relevant research, and let you draw your own conclusions about what medical conditions it may be effective in treating.

As a supplement, GABA has received less attention from medical researchers than it deserves. The handful of scientifically conducted clinical trials that have been conducted since 1980 have reported positive results with certain usages of GABA, but many interesting applications have never been investigated scientifically.

GABA supplementation has been shown to be effective for:

  • stimulating the pituitary gland to secrete more Human Growth Hormone4
  • Increasing protein synthesis in brain, muscle, and liver5
  • inducing relaxation6
  • reducing anxiety6
  • enhancing immunity during stress6
  • reducing high blood pressure7
  • increasing blood insulin levels8

In addition to the directly demonstrated actions listed above, the following actions are suggested by indirect scientific evidence:

  • improve schizophrenic symptoms9
  • promote loss of excess body fat10
  • build muscle

And then there are the GABA usages that have never been properly investigated scientifically. For these we have to rely on anecdotal evidence:

  • anti-aging
  • making users feel youthful and energetic
  • improving the skin
  • darkening hair
  • inducing sleep
  • improving the quality of sleep
  • causing more interesting, vivid dreaming
  • diminishing arthritis pain and lower back pain
  • reducing symptoms of alcohol withdrawal
  • controlling hypoglycemia
  • suppressing appetite
  • reducing premenstrual symptoms
  • alleviating some types of depression

Let us briefly look at the evidence for several of the above applications of GABA.

Growth hormone production

Growth hormone levels have a positive impact on mood, energy, tissue repair, and muscle growth. Declines in the body’s production of growth hormone are associated with declines in the body’s health, youth, and vigor. Conversely, increases in growth hormone production can often improve the one’s mental and physical condition.

A clinical trial in 1980 showed that a single 5-gram oral dose of GABA caused a five-fold increase in blood levels of growth hormone. Increasing the dose to 18 g/day for several days, however, resulted in a smaller effect.411 According to a 1994 study, a similar situation occurs in sheep given intravenous injections of GABA: a 10-mg dose produces a significant rise in growth hormone levels, but a 100-mg dose actually inhibits the release of growth hormone.

Reducing anxiety

In a study in 2006, acrophobic subjects (who fear heights) were asked to cross a suspended bridge as a stressful stimulus. Those who had been given GABA an hour prior to the test showed a marked increase in immunoglobin-A levels in their saliva (an indicator of mental relaxation), compared to those who had been given a placebo.6

Anecdotal reports give the impression that for some people GABA works well to reduce anxiety, while for others it does not. The only way to find out if it will work for you is to try it.

Lowering blood pressure

In a 2003 clinical trial, 39 ‘mildly hypertensive’ patients were given a GABA-fortified milk product. After 2-4 weeks, a decrease of about 17 mmHg systolic and 7 mmHg diastolic blood pressure occurred and was maintained throughout the 12-week study.7

Increasing insulin

A clinical study in 1982 examined insulin levels in the blood of subjects given a single oral dose of GABA. A dosage of 5 g caused a significant rise in blood insulin levels.8

Conclusion

Are GABA supplements useful for the conditions and purposes mentioned above? We aren’t allowed to tell you, so you should take a look at some of the references cited here, and then decide for yourself.
