Gaba Calming Tea: GABA is short for gamma-aminobutyric acid - the most abundant inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. GABA is an amino acid, classified as a neurotransmitter and helps induce relaxation and sleep. It balances the brain by inhibiting over-excitation. GABA contributes to motor control, vision, and many other cortical functions. Anxiety is also regulated by GABA. Some drugs that increase the level of GABA in the brain are used to treat epilepsy and to calm the trembling of people suffering from Huntington’s disease.
GABA also stimulates the anterior pituitary, leading to higher levels of Human Growth Hormone or "HGH". Human Growth Hormone contributes significantly to muscle growth and prevents the creation of fat cells. Adults over the age of 40 begin to experience depletion of HGH which may contribute to sleep disturbances or interrupted sleeping patterns. GABA is naturally occurring in this Taiwanese Oolong as a result of the way it is crafted.
