GABA+ is a dietary supplement containing gamma-aminobutyric acid, which is the most common neurotransmitter in our central nervous system.
Its capacity to stimulate sleep and relaxation has been widely exploited by traditional medicine. Today, as a supplement, it is used for its ability to stimulate the secretion of the growth hormone (GH) and fight chronic fatigue syndrome.
GABA is involved in the production of two hormones vital for the increase of muscle mass: testosterone and the growth hormone. The GH is used in the world of sport to promote the increase of protein synthesis in muscle cells and the performance of athletes. Additionally, it can reduce body fat in favour of lean mass and muscle tone.
The improved sleep quality offered by GABA speeds up both plastic and energy recovery, in favour of muscle mass and endurance to effort. Furthermore, GABA controls the nervous impulses and intervenes on chronic pain and cramps.
Finally, with age, our body's production of growth hormone tends to decrease. A factor that makes the supplementation to stimulate its production essential.
