Ultimate Calm contains a 100% natural form of GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid), which is an inhibitory (calming) neurotransmitter in the central nervous system that creates a natural calming effect upon the body and brain. The functions of GABA are absolutely essential to the overall health of the nervous system.
Is Ultimate Calm beneficial if you suffer from anxiety?
The form of GABA within Ultimate Calm is very safe and effective in many instances. Numerous disorders—such as, anxiety, tension, depression, insomnia, and epilepsy are believed to be (at least in part) due to a dysfunction regarding GABA production and/or insufficient levels of GABA. Many pharmaceuticals such as Valium are used to induce GABA-like effects on the body and brain; however these drugs come with numerous side-effects as well as a strong history of addiction.
Can Ultimate Calm be taken instead of Ultimate Anti-Stress where excess stress is concerned?
Ultimate Calm can be taken along with Ultimate Anti-Stress or on its own. GABA helps to reduce the numerous negative effects of stress upon the body and brain by decreasing the stressful beta brain waves that disrupt mental concentration and focus. At the same time, GABA enhances the uplifting alpha brain waves, ultimately producing a feeling of natural alertness along with relaxation. GABA can be a powerful ally when it comes to supporting the body during stressful times. Indirectly, GABA also helps to maintain a strong immune system by stopping many of the negative effects associated with stress – including lowering immunity and interrupted sleep patterns.
Is the GABA in Ultimate Calm better than other GABA products?
Ultimate Calm uses a specialized form of GABA called PharmaGABA™, which is a 100% naturally manufactured GABA produced from healthy bacteria called Lactobacillus hilgardii – the bacteria used to ferment vegetables in the preparation of the traditional Korean dish known as kimchi. PharmaGABA™ is a highly concentrated bioactive form of GABA that has been shown in studies to readily cross the blood brain barrier. Unfortunately, many other brands are comprised of the synthetic form of GABA (sometimes referred to as "naturally occurring L-form") which, has not been demonstrated to cross the blood brain barrier—even at extremely high doses.
