How Meditation Relieves Anxiety: GABA, Serotonin, Neurotransmitters
How Meditation Boosts Anti-Anxiety Neurotransmitters: Serotonin & GABA
Why GABA & Serotonin Are So Critical
Between your magnificently complex brain's 100 billion neurons are a web-like network of information relayers known as "neurotransmitters."
For the anxiety patient, there are two crucial "must know" neurotransmitters: gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) & serotonin.
When levels of these two key brain chemicals run on empty, our stress defense shield drops — making us vulnerable to anxiety and all of its ugly, inbred cousins: worry, restlessness, nervousness, insomnia, etc.
If you are taking anti-anxiety medication, it is very likely targeting these two chemical messengers.
Then, why not just pop a pill to make it all better?
Why Anti-Anxiety Meds Aren't Cool
The problems with anxiety and depression medication are many, including feeling like a zoned out "zombie," dependency, dizziness, drowsiness, poor concentration, memory loss, confusion, headache, blurred vision, insomnia, weight gain, fatigue, nausea, the list goes on.
The cherry on top, clinical studies have shown some of these to be no more effective than a placebo, or even not working at all!
Luckily, an all natural, much better solution exists. Backed by a mountain of research and centuries of anecdotal evidence, meditation drops anxiety harder than a ton of bricks.
How Meditation Supercharges Neurotransmitters
So, what’s the data? For serotonin, as evidenced by a highly cited University of Montreal study as well as many others, it is well understood that meditation boosts this prime neurotransmitter to "anxiety resistant" levels.
GABA and meditation are also well-linked. One study by psychiatrists at the Boston University School of Medicine found an incredible 27% increase after less than one hour of meditation!
Strengthening the case, researchers believe that practicing mindfulness has a very strong neurotransmitter "cumulative effect," with tectonic implications for the anxiety sufferer.
GABA & Serotonin: How Meditation Fills Your Tank
To illustrate how it works, what would happen if you put $15 of gasoline into your tank each morning, while using only $10 worth on your daily commute? Of course, your tank would eventually get full and stay full, basic supply and demand economics.
For your brain, meditation does the same, fillin' 'er up with the most purely refined GABA & Serotonin, replenishing far more high quality octane than stress can ever deplete.
When your tank is always full of these naturally calming, feel-good neurotransmitters, you become immune to the mileage (anxiety, depression, addiction, etc) which would otherwise have you on the side of the road calling for a AAA tow-truck.
Would you rather pop a side-effect ridden pill to feel calm and happy for a little while? Or fundamentally upgrade your biology to be forever "anxiety immune"? Tough call.
