What is gamma aminobutyric acid powder (GABA)?

Gamma aminobutyric acid powder (GABA) is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. Its principal role is reducing neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system. In humans, it is also directly responsible for the regulation of muscle tone.

Although it is an amino acid in chemical terms, It is rarely referred to as such in the scientific or medical community. The term “amino acid,” when used without a qualifier, refers specifically to an alpha-amino acid by convention. It is not an alpha-amino acid, meaning the amino group is not attached to the alpha carbon, so it is not incorporated into proteins.

Gamma aminobutyric acid powder (GABA) Functions


Invertebrates act at inhibitory synapses in the brain by binding to specific transmembrane receptors in the plasma membrane of both pre-and postsynaptic neuronal processes. This binding causes ion channels to flow to allow the flow of either negatively charged chloride ions into the cell or positively charged potassium ions out of the cell. This action results in a negative change in the transmembrane potential, usually causing hyperpolarization.

Brain development

It is an inhibitory transmitter in the mature brain, and it was considered the major excitatory neurotransmitter in many regions of the brain before the maturation of glutamatergic synapses.

Beyond the nervous system

GABAergic mechanisms have been demonstrated in various peripheral tissues and organs, including the intestines, the stomach, the pancreas, the Fallopian tubes, the uterus, the ovaries, the testes, the kidneys, the urinary bladder, the lungs, and the liver.
