GABA, Gamma Aminobutyric Acid, is an amino acid classified as a neurotransmitter (A neurotransmitter is a substance that transmits nerve impulses across a synapse. A synapse is a region where nerve impulses are transmitted across axon terminals.)
GABA’s high concentration in the hypothalamus suggests this amino acid plays a significant role in hypothalamic-pituitary function. The hypothalamus is a region of the posterior section of the brain and is the regulating center for visceral (instinctive) functions such as sleep cycles, body temperature, and the activity of the pituitary gland.
The pituitary gland is the master endocrine gland effecting all hormonal functions of the body. One primary hormone of concern to the athlete is growth hormone (GH) and its various hormonal constituents.
The amino acid GABA has been shown in numerous studies to promote significant increases in plasma growth hormone levels.
GABA’s growth hormone elevating effects rival that of potent pharmaceutical compounds.

For best results: Take 3 grams mixed with water or juice 30 minutes before your workout. Also take 3 to 5 grams mixed with 8 ounces of water or juice approximately 30 minutes before sleep. GABA can also be added to your pre-workout VP2 Whey Isolate/Creatine HSC drink.
Please Note: GABA is a naturally occuring amino acid classified as a neurotransmitter. One thing you should know about GABA. It may cause a slight tingling, and/or a slight shortness of breath and/or flushing sensation minutes after you take it. This is not uncommon at all and is characteristic of this amino acid and quickly subsides.
Those that are not aware of this effect sometimes get a little excited. However, it's harmless and dissipates after a 15 minutes or so.
The way to minimize this effect is to slowly work up to the 5 gram dose over a 3 week period. For example, the first week start off taking 2 grams before bed. The second week increase the dose to 3 grams. On the third week go to 4 grams. And on the forth week you should comfortably be able to take a 5 gram dose before bed.
