Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a neurotransmitter in our brain. Neurotransmitters function as chemical messengers. GABA is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it blocks impulses between nerve cells in the brain, or inhibits certain brain signals and decreases activity in your nervous system. Therefore, it is often called the “Brakes of the Brain.”
When GABA attaches to a protein in your brain known as a GABA receptor, it produces a calming effect. This can help with feelings of anxiety, stress, and fear. It may also help to prevent seizures.
Many medications interact with GABA and GABA receptors in the brain, altering their function to achieve certain effects, typically relaxation, pain relief, stress and anxiety reduction, lower blood pressure, and improved sleep. Barbiturates, anesthetics, benzodiazepines, antidepressants, and anti-seizure medications are some of the medications that target GABA.
