How Meditation Increases GABA Naturally, Key Benefits
The "Calm Chemical" — How Meditation Boosts GABA
Best known for making you feel calm, GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) is one of the major inhibitory neurotransmitters in your central nervous system.
Anyone with an addiction, including alcohol, drugs, tobacco, caffeine, and food, all have one thing in common: lack of GABA. Not having enough of this super-important chemical can create an array of problems, including anxiety, nervousness, racing thoughts, and sleeplessness. Luckily, there is an effective solution.
In 2010, Psychiatrists at the Boston University School of Medicine found a 27% increase in GABA levels after only 60 minutes of mindful exercises - proven even more effective than physical exercise! Researchers were quite surprised by the "more powerful than exercise" finding, but meditation has been practiced over the millennia for very good reason.
Visiting this super-effective neuron soothing state every day during meditation can effectively melt away any anxiety and addiction you may carry, clearing the path for your highest potential to be realized.
