GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, which has many effects such as lowering blood pressure, anti-depression, relieving physical fatigue, preventing senile dementia, and improving sleep. Its food safety has been widely verified.
GABA can improve nervous system diseases. GABA has a high concentration in the human brain and acts as inhibitory neurotransmission in several pathways of the central nervous system and peripheral tissues. Diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia are related to GABA. Data show that the GABA content in the brain of Alzheimer's disease patients is much lower than that of normal people, and there is a certain improvement after ingesting GABA.
GABA is also helpful in improving sleep. Due to the rapid development of modern society, sleep disorders affect about 50% of the world's people. According to the survey of patients with insomnia, a considerable number of patients' GABA secretion value is lower than the normal level, and the symptoms are improved after exogenous GABA supplementation.
Generally speaking, the human body can produce GABA autonomously, but sometimes it is limited by various factors and the secretion is insufficient, which causes certain health risks. Due to its early start, Japan is currently the country with the largest market for GABA products, such as GABA gummies and GABA beverages.
