What is GABA?
Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA for short) is a protein-containing substance that assumes important functions in the central nervous system (CNS). It is a messenger substance (neurotransmitter) that transmits information (stimuli) in the brain and spinal cord.
GABA belongs to the group of inhibitory messengers of the central nervous system. Nerve transmission takes place through the docking of the messenger substances at so-called receptors (docking sites). Almost all nerve cells in the brain have docking sites for the neurotransmitter and in as many as 40 % of all neurons GABA plays a role in sending information. Consequently, it takes over a multitude of important functions in the nervous system and is jointly responsible for the correct transmission of information.
Always well supplied with GABA capsules from ZeinPharma
The body is able to produce GABA itself. But only to a certain extent. In the case of stimulus overload, it can no longer intercept the incoming stimuli and the supplies in the central nervous system are quickly used up. Furthermore, with increasing age, the body can synthesise GABA more and more slowly. Therefore, additional consumption of ZeinPharma capsules can be useful to ensure that the body always has an adequate supply. The additional consumption of vitamin B6 (in its active form "pyridoxalphosphate") can have a supporting effect on the GABA content in the body. This is because vitamin B6 acts as a "cofactor" in the formation of GABA.
