GABA is found in large amounts in the hypothalamus, suggesting that this amino acid plays a crucial role in the hypothalamic-pituitary function. GABA helps stimulate the production of human growth hormone, which is known for its powerful muscle-building effects. Several clinical studies have shown that ingestion of GABA releases growth hormone, especially after exercise, with remarkable effectiveness. GABA may also help promote deep and restful sleep.
GABA (2 capsules) is best taken before going to sleep approximately 45 minutes after the last meal. Intake of GABA at bed time makes it work with the body's natural rhythms for increased growth hormone production and thus increased performance.
