GABA-Relieve Anxiety Naturally

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, about 40 million adults suffer from severe anxiety disorders each year, and it seems everyone deals with less debilitating but still harmful levels of anxiety on at least an occasional basis. But while we spend billions of dollars on prescription medications that promise to calm us down, drugs aren’t always necessary. Trying a natural supplement can do the trick just as well and is often better for our bodies anyways.

For instance GABA.  Also known as gamma-aminobutyric acid-has a calming effect on the brain.  GABA is a nonessential amino acid and neurotransmitter that blocks stress and anxiety by preventing neurons from over-firing.  GABA is produced naturally in the body but also is available in supplement form.  Try Rainbow Light Busy Brain Release sold at $24 for 60 minitabs.
