Liposomal GABA with L-Theanine
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an amino acid produced in the human body that functions as the principle inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. GABA is asssociated with the parasympathetic side of the autonomic nervous system which balances the sympathetic (fight-or-flight) side. Many pharmacological agents exert anxiolytic, analgesic, anticonvusant and sedative effects by modulating GABA receptor activity, or blocking the reuptake of GABA, thus increasing GABA activity.
Many toxins, such as mercury, and some physical traumas, such as head trauma, elicit neurotoxic effects though glutamate receptors in the brain (called NMDA-mediated neurotoxicity). This produces a feedback loop of inflammation, neurotoxicity, and anxiety. GABA is not efficient because it is poorly absorbed and does not easily cross the blood-brain barrier. Studies have shown that GABA administered with phosphatidylserine improved GABA's activity and was proposed to be due to an increased ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. Quicksilver Scientific's Delivery Systems GABA produces a very quick and powerful effect.

L-Thianine is an amino acid found naturally in tea. Research suggests that theanine affects inhibitory neurotransmission (parasympathetic) and has been shown to have relaxing effects on congnitive thinking and blood pressure

|GABA Gamma amino butyric acid)||250 mg|
Phosphatidylcholine (from purified sunflower seed lecithin)
Other Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Ethanol, Medium-Chain Triglycerides, Vitamin E (as d-alpha tocopherol polyethylene glycol 1000 succinate and mixed natural tocopherols)
Suggested Use: Take 4 pumps whenever needed, especially before bed. Take 2 pumps at a time directly by mouth, hold 30 seconds and then swallow. GABA has also shown useful before taking detoxification products to dampen negative responses.
