Swanson Maximum Strength GABA is a dietary supplement which contains (per capsule) as much as 750mg of gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) - an inhibitory neurotransmitter of the nervous system that has a calming and relaxing effect, reduces fear and improves sleep quality and regeneration.
GABA (γ-Aminobutyric acid) - a compound belonging to the group of non-proteinogenic amino acids (it does not become a part of proteins); it is created in the brain as a result of the decarboxylation of glutamic acid in the presence of vitamin B6. As one of the most important neurotransmitters in the central nervous system (CNS), it performs the function of inhibiting the activity of the nervous system - it raises the excitability threshold of postganglionic cells. As a result, the creation of action potentials responsible for transmitting data in the nervous system is inhibited. It reduces psychophysical tension, lowers excitability, has a relaxing and anticonvulsant effect on skeletal muscles, prevents the restless legs syndrome. It does so by activating specific membrane receptors (GABA receptors), which are divided into two types: GABAA receptors (responsible for inhibiting neurotransmission in the nervous system) and GABAB receptors (responsible for inhibiting the synthesis of neurotransmitters: dopamine and noradrenaline). Type A receptors, present in nearly every neuron, are the place where many compounds called the agonists of receptor GABA are active. In that category are included, among other substances: alcohol, GHB and benzodiazepines - popular drugs which reduce fear and have a calming and sleep inducing effect; often used recreationally, with time they cause a physical and psychological addiction.
GABA for sportspeople
Cortisol and growth hormone (GH) are hormones that even an unexperienced beginner in sports is familiar with. The former, called the stress hormone, evokes rather negative associations, as, from the one hand, it has a catabolic effect on muscle tissue (it causes muscle protein degradation), and on the other hand, it stimulates the development of fat tissue (particularly with a negative relation with insulin), mostly in places such as the face, the neck and the waist. Contrarily, growth hormone is the one that supports muscle development, stimulates fat tissue degradation (lipolysis) and is responsible for organism regeneration. GABA enables reaching top performance exactly through reducing the level of cortisol and increasing the concentration of growth hormone. Activating GABA receptors inhibits the release of the corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH) in the hypothalamus, thanks to which it reduces the production of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by the pituitary gland - the direct stimulator of cortisol production by the adrenal cortex. At the same time, GABA stimulates the release of somatotropin (growth hormone) from the pituitary gland, supporting the development of an athletic silhouette.
To sum up, Swanson Maximum Strength GABA is a dietary supplement that supports the development of a good form by reducing the level of cortisol and increasing the level of growth hormone. It has a calming and relaxing effect, supports regeneration and improves sleep quality. It is recommended for people who live in permanent stress, suffer from insomnia, feel anxiety or fear, as well as for sportspeople who aim at a muscular, athletic silhouette.
It is recommended to take the supplement before sleep to increase its quality. In order to increase the effect of the preparation the supplementation should be joined with nitric oxide. GABA supplementation is especially recommended in case of the feeling of fatigue, reduced concentration and in stressful conditions. Moreover, the dose of 3000-5000 mg may be used, among others, to increase growth hormone metabolism.

GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) is an amino acid neurotransmitter fulfilling the role of suppressing, of which precursor is the glutamate (neurotransmitter) excitatory neurotransmitter. Reduces psychophysical tension and cortisol levels, enhances the synthesis of growth hormone having anti-catabolic and regenerating properties. Higher need for GABA by the organism occurs with overtraining, mental exhaustion of the body (stress, depression). Supplementation sports and for physically active people recommended after and during intense exercise. GABA is available in the form of mono-preparation supplement and multicomponent formulations to support the regeneration of the night regenerateion and relaxation of the nervous system.
Dosage: 0,5-3g daily approx. 1 hour before bedtime (single dose, customarily in supplementation).
