Here’s how to make your own GABA, not in your basement, but in your brain.
GABA helps relax you, helps you make faster and better decisions under pressure, and helps you face your fears with less of a harmful stress response.
To make it ourselves we need glucose to enter the brain, then we need to use seven B vitamins, at least four minerals, and a robust supply of cellular energy to make the GABA, and we need salt, potassium, and energy to make it function properly.
Tune in for how to get all these nutrients from food and make it happen.

Transcripts make it easier to use the information. You may just prefer to read. But having transcripts and video or audio can massively increase your productivity. For example, you can listen while you are washing the dishes, commuting to work, or doing other menial tasks, getting familiar with the material and scanning for things you want to learn more about. Then you can come back and keyword-search the transcript for the exact things you want to master in more detail.
