Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid Information

Although gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is an important neurotransmitter in the body, it is also available in the form of a dietary supplement. These supplements are claimed to have several uses, such as helping with weight loss and improving mood.
 
Even though it is a nonprescription product, this supplement is not without risks. For example, you may be more likely than others to experience problems with gamma-aminobutyric acid if you:
 
  • Have any chronic medical conditions
  • Are pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding.
  •  
If you have any of these conditions, make sure your healthcare provider has this information before you start taking gamma-aminobutyric acid.
