Gamma-amino butyric acid (GABA) is one of the major inhibitory neurotransmitters in the brain that naturally provides a calming effect on the body. Cerenity includes a patented, naturally-sourced, non-synthetic form of GABA called PharmaGABATM. It is produced naturally by the friendly bacteria, Lactobacillus hilgardii. In a double-blind study using healthy volunteers, EEG readings were obtained after 100 mg of PharmaGABATM was administered. PharmaGABATM produced a significant increase in alpha waves, as well as a significant decrease in beta waves, when compared to the control group. Alpha brain waves are associated with relaxed focus, while beta waves are associated with restlessness and scattered thoughts. Therefore, an increase in alpha to beta waves is associated with a temporary state of centered relaxation.
Neurotransmitters are the chemical messengers that regulate mood, memory, sleep cycle and daily stress. Adequate neurotransmitter production depends on an adequate supply of amino acids, vitamins and minerals in the diet. High levels of stress, dietary deficiencies, genetics, medications and toxins all play a role in neurotransmitter depletion.
