GABA, The Ultimate Calming Agent
Ultimate Calm contains a 100% natural form of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which is an inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter in the central nervous system that creates a natural calming effect upon the body and brain. Numerous disorders, such as anxiety, tension, depression and insomnia, are believed to be (at least in part) due to a dysfunction regarding GABA production and/or insufficient levels of GABA.
Many pharmaceuticals such as Valium are used to induce GABA-like effects on the body and brain; however these drugs come with numerous side-effects as well as a strong history of addiction. GABA helps to reduce the numerous negative effects of stress on the body and brain by decreasing the stressful beta brain waves that disrupt mental concentration and focus. At the same time, GABA enhances the uplifting alpha brain waves, ultimately producing a feeling of relaxation.
Ultimate Calm uses a specialized form of GABA called PharmaGABA, which is a highly concentrated bioactive, 100% naturally manufactured GABA that has been shown in studies to readily cross the blood brain barrier. Unfortunately, many other brands are comprised of the synthetic form of GABA (or “naturally occurring L-form”) which, has not been demonstrated to cross the blood brain barrier, even at extremely high doses.
