GABA, the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system, plays a key role in regulating muscle excitability. Both GABA and glycine act as calmatives for nerve impulses, controlling muscle contractions. GABA also supports the brain, preventing stress-related messages that trigger muscle spasms from reaching motor centers of the brain by occupying their receptor sites. Cramp bark powder has been used historically for achiness associated with exercise or physical activity, and is one of the most effective natural aids for alleviating exercise-related and female hormone- associated muscle discomfort. Dong quai root extract has also been used for centuries in Chinese traditional medicine, to increase relaxation of the smooth muscles. Magnesium and B6 are known for their immediate effect on muscular relaxation. While other therapies with a similar mechanism may cause dependency when used over time, the natural ingredients in GABAnol are non-habit forming and work quickly to ease muscle tension.

GABA itself is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain and regulates other neurotransmissions to prevent overstimulation. One study found that after only 60 minutes of administration, GABA significantly increased alpha brain waves and decreased beta waves compared to water or L-theanine, indicating a significant calming effect on the nervous system. The same study also found GABA to support healthy Ig levels. A randomized, single-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover- designed study found that among 63 adults given capsules containing 100 mg of GABA or a placebo, those who had taken GABA experienced diminished alpha band and beta band brain waves compared with placebo.
