Initially studies relating to the GABA supplement indicated a direct relation with the Growth Hormone secretion leading to its increase with GABA ingestion. The Immunofunctional Growth Hormone (ifGH) and the Immunoreactive Growth hormone (irGH) are the two analogues which elevates in vivo after orally administering this supplement. Inspite of the inefficacy of this supplement to pass BB it is considered as a major inhibitory neurotransmitter to induce a reaction for release of dopamine at the suprapituitary level.Resistance exercise can change the influence of this compound on GH secretion. The exercise peak value occurs half an hour post ingestion while 75 minutes during rest. Although in earlier studies it was not concluded that the effects of this supplement was direct on growth hormones, researchers predict so.
Appropriate dosage recommendations
Most people get concerned about their difficulty in falling asleep at night even after an entire day’s work. This can be due to several factors and if traditional methods to attain relaxation and sleep does not work intake of new supplement might do the job. One of the commonly used supplements is GABA, a neuroinhibitor in the brain which maintains a balance for excitatory neurotransmitter, a major dominator of the brain functions. Excitation of the activities of the brain results in issues such as anxiety, stress, irritability, insomnia and restlessness. This compound inhibits such negative impacts and keeps a check in the normal functioning of the brain. But the main concern is the appropriate dosage level to attain a good sleep at night as an improper dosage level can enhance the level of such compound in the brain leading to imbalance. The standard recommended dosage level of this supplement is 250mg or a single capsule. However, this dosage level might be inappropriate for some and is greatly dependent upon the user. Some consumers prefer to take as much as 2gms but it is always safe to start off with lower doses to know its effects on the body initially.
The effect of GABA on human brain
Known to be a major inhibitory neurotransmitter which is developed from glutamate in the brain cells, the only function of this compound is to relax the brain and the nervous system by acting as a connecting link among several nerves. There are several neurotransmitters which acts as inhibitory or excitatory transmitter for transferring signals from the brain to different muscles for the proper functioning of the human body. Without the presence of GABA, anxiety disorders like panic attacks and seizure related disorders including other imbalances such as Parkinson’s syndrome, cognitive impairment, addictions and headaches occur leading the body to function abnormally. In the presence of this compound, the frequent firing of nerve cells is reduced to a minimum. When the serotonin level is low and stress levels are high, the functioning of the brain is not optimum to send and receive signals leading the excitatory neurotransmitters to fire continuously and easily ultimately resulting in high blood pressure. This is the time when the synthesized version of this compound comes as a much needed help to control the normal functioning of the brain cells.
