111: How to Make Your Own GABA

Chris Masterjohn Lite Episode 111



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.
