The ingredients in GABAnol promote muscle relaxation and relief of smooth muscle tension following exercise or strenuous activity.
- Synergistic Blend of Amino Acids, Vitamins, Minerals and Dong Quai
- Helps Alleviate Muscle Soreness, Muscle Spasm and Promote Muscle Relaxation
- Helps Maintain Nervous System Balance
GABAnol is a synergistic combination of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), glycine, magnesium, vitamin B6 and dong quai, which serves as a quick response supplement for muscle relaxation and discomfort. The combination of glycine and GABA act as inhibitory neurotransmitters, which help calm muscles and reduce the activity of the excitatory nervous system that can cause muscle spasms.
GABA, the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, plays a key role in regulating muscle excitability. Both GABA and glycine act as calmatives for nerve impulses, controlling muscle contractions. GABA also supports the brain, preventing stress-related messages that trigger muscle spasms from reaching motor centers of the brain by occupying their receptor sites. While other therapies with a similar mechanism may cause dependency when used over time, the natural ingredients in GABAnol are non-habit forming and work quickly to ease muscle tension.
1-2 capsules three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
GABA itself is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain and regulates other neurotransmissions to prevent overstimulation.
Glycine is one of three amino acids needed for the synthesis of creatine, which supplies energy to nerve and muscle cells. Elevated amounts of glycine are found in the muscles, skin and other connective tissues. Glycine is also an inhibitory neurotransmitter, which works much like GABA.
A perennial botanical native to China and Japan, Dong quai is effective at easing post-exercise muscle soreness, and has long been used medicinally for smooth muscle tension. Dong quai contains active ingredients, called coumarins, which dilate blood vessels, balance the central nervous system and increase blood flow.
Vitamin B6 is required to convert glutamic acid to GABA in the body. Vitamin B6 is also a cofactor in many cellular biochemical reactions, including the release of glucose from glycogen and that of amino acid metabolism, including transamination, deamination and decarboxylation.
Magnesium, the fourth most abundant mineral, participates in roughly 300-350 enzymatic reactions in the body. It aids in maintaining normal muscle and nerve function, blood pressure, heart rate, vasomotor tone, bone density, serum glucose levels, calcium absorption and immune response.
Magnesium deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies that can lead to unwanted side effects when left untreated. Because magnesium plays a significant role in regulating the influx of calcium into muscle cells, calcium can remain in the muscle cell for a longer period when magnesium is depleted, leading to cramping or muscle spasms.
