Organic "Gaba" Oolong


Organic "Gaba" Oolong


Oolong Tea has naturally occurring high levels of GABA. “GABA Tea” is created by oxidizing tea in a high-nitrogen, oxygen-free environment instead of oxygen during oxidation

GABA stands for gamma-aminobutyric acid, a compound our brains synthesize out of glutamate and one of the main neurotransmitters for the central nervous system. Often referred to as “nature’s Valium,” its function is to decrease neuron activity, which assists in preventing anxiety and stress related messages from reaching the motor centers of the brain, instilling the body with stability and calm.

In addition to all the healthy benefits of tea drinking, it’s believed that increased GABA in tea decreases stress and anxiety, helps to improve memory and alertness, aids in weight loss, and acts as a natural sleep aid. Tea, however, is not medicine and the potential positive effects of GABA certainly aren’t accomplished by simply sipping tea. It should be pointed out that many doctors doubt that GABA supplements help “when GABA is taken orally, GABA levels in the brain do not increase, presumably because the substance itself cannot pass the blood-brain barrier and enter the central nervous system.”
