The anxiety pendulum - as your brain experiences larger and more frequent swings, whether it's from aging, stress, drug or alcohol abuse, or just burned-out GABA, you have engaged in the GABA deficiency. Beyond cortisol release, a GABA loss directly affects all body systems including heart, the immune system, sexual functioning, as well as the bones, muscles, and skin.
- GABA deficiency leads to choppy signals from the brain to the heart, which can lead to cardiac arrhythmias and heart attacks.
- Anger and anxiety, caused by low GABA levels, are two of the strongest predictors of high blood pressure.
- Lack of internal calm can lead to digestive problems, including reflux, heartburn, diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, or constipation
- Low GABA leads to pain in your bones, muscles, and joints, such as chronic back pain.
- A constant state of tension and anxiety can lead to a loss of sexual interest as well as sexual dysfunction.
Typical symptoms of low levels of GABA include:
- Feeling on edge
- Being easily fatigued
- Difficulty concentrating or mind going blank
- Muscle tension
- Rapid heartbeat
- Shortness of breath
- Sweaty, clammy hands
- Cold extremities
- High startle response
- Feelings of panic
- Excessive worry
- Attention deficit
- Mood swings
- Sleep problems
- Out-of-body feelings
- Obsessive compulsive traits
Choose a variety of foods that contain GABA nutrients that are high in Vitamin B. The following list contains foods that are high in glutamine, the amino acid that is a precursor to GABA. Bananas, broccoli, and brown rice are all packed with inositol, another B-complex vitamin that boosts GABA production.
- Beef Liver
- Brown rice
- Rice bran
- Whole grains
