Traditional formulations of GABA are so poorly absorbed that they’re largely ineffective which is why many use l-theanine for its calming effects.
Liposomal formulations overcome the poor absorption issues of regular GABA supplements making it supplement worth considering.
Liposomal GABA with L-Theanine features GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) and L-theanine, both well regarded for promoting mental and emotional calm without impairing focus and attention.
GABA serves as a critical calming agent for the body, helping to combat stress.
L-Theanine is an amino acid found mainly in tea and various fungi but mostly promoted as being found in green tea. The thing is, there’s not much l-theanine in green tea, certainly not enough to derive a calming effect from the popular beverage.
As a supplement, L-theanine is used to help with stress as it crosses the blood-brain barrier and is known to block the binding of glutamic acid to glutamate receptors in the brain and has been considered to cause anti-stress effects by inhibiting cortical neuron excitation.
