Pyridoxal 5’ phosphate, synthetic GABA, vitamin C
GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. It helps you feel calm and relaxed, and it can promote restful sleep. Many anti-anxiety and sleep medications target GABA receptors, as recent studies have found that GABA promotes the production of the brain’s alpha waves, which are associated with relaxation and reduced stress.
Untreated stress and mental strain can lead to a number of mental and physical disorders, including anxiety, insomnia and daily irritability. Over time, high anxiety and lack of sleep can be associated with obesity and cardiovascular problems. The immune system can be disrupted by high stress levels; healthy GABA levels lead increased antibody levels, which allow for more protection against illnesses.
Pyridoxal 5’ phosphate is an enzyme co-factor needed to produce GABA. Synthetic GABA is used to increase GABA levels in the nervous system. Vitamin C supports the maintenance of GABA levels.
