|Gamma neurotransmitter (A neurotransmitter is a substance that transmits
nerve impulses across a synapse. A synapse is a region where nerve impulses are
transmitted across axon terminals.)
GABA's high concentration in the hypothalamus suggests this amino acid plays
a significant role in hypothalamic-pituitary function.
The pituitary gland is the master endocrine gland
affecting all hormonal functions of the body. One primary hormone of concern to the
athlete is growth hormone (GH) and its various hormonal constituents.
One noted study from the First Medical Clinic at the
University of Milan in Milan, Italy showed "In all of the 19 subjects studied,
compared with 18 controls, plasma growth hormone levels were significantly increased
(above 5 mg/ml) by acute oral administration of 5 g of GABA "
The hypothalamus is a region of
the posterior section of the brain and is the regulating center
for visceral (instinctive) Functions such as sleep cycles, body
temperature, and the activity of the pituitary gland.
There have been literally hundreds of clinical studies on GABA
and numerous studies on GABA's ability to elevate growth hormone levels.
This study showed over a 5 1/2
fold increase in plasma growth hormone levels 90 minutes after
GABA administration. That is a significant increase unmatched by
any other nutritional means.
GABA's growth hormone
elevating effects rival that of potent pharmaceutical compounds.
