Glutamate is a stimulating neurotransmitter that can cause an increase in brain activity. When glutamate enters the receptors on the surface of the cell, signals are transmitted to boost brain function. GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that works to curtail excitatory effects caused by glutamate. Imbalance in these two neurotransmitters can cause anxious feelings. Specifically, high glutamate levels can cause an un-easy, apprehensive feeling. GABA Trex can decrease anxious feelings by addressing the neurotransmitter imbalance through amino acid supplementation.
The key ingredient in GABA Trex is L-theanine, an amino acid which acts as a glutamate receptor antagonist. It blocks receptors on the cell surface to prevent glutamate from entering the cell. This can decrease feelings of anxiety because high glutamate levels are no longer causing overstimulation to the nerve cells. Additionally, when L-theanine blocks these receptors, it enhances the function of GABA. Blocking these receptors impedes the actions of glutamate, allowing GABA to perform functions that provide a calming effect.
