Some interesting facts about GABA:

  • GABA is a non-essential amino acid
    GABA is a non-essential amino acid, which means the body can metabolise (or make) it from the essential amino acids. It is not necessarily required in high levels in the diet.
  • GABA functions as a building block of protein in the body
    GABA, just like all the other amino acids, is one of the building blocks of all proteins in the body, which not only include muscles, but also all the other proteins required for normal function of the body.

  • GABA is manufactured in the body from glutamic acid
    Even if the diet is in short supply of GABA, the body can make as much as it requires, from the amino acid glutamic acid (as long as there is adequate intake of this amino acid in the diet).
