Does GABA create anxiety?!

Question: Does GABA create anxiety.?
I know it does nothing mentally, but does it have an affect on our fight a flight responses.? Is it like taking caffiene.?Health Question & Answer

No. GABA does not penetrate the stomach intact, and what little remains is destroyed by first pass metabolism in the liver. Orally consuming GABA has no physiological impact beyond being a source of misc. amino acids.

The GABAergic system in the brain, particularly in areas such as the amygdala is responsible for regulating feelings of anxiety and panic. Fight or flight response is typically something more associated with the sympathetic nervous system, outside the brain.Health Question & Answer
