#309--deficiencies in gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) can cause symptoms of stress where a person is unable to relax, feels easily overwhelmed, is burnt out, and has chronic stiffness or tight muscles. So instead of reaching for comfort foods like sweets or starches; instead of taking a drink or grabbing a smoke or even taking some Valium, try replenishing this essential neurotransmitter by supplementing with 100-500mg of GABA 1-3 times a day. You may find you're better able to tolerate all the stressors in your life. And all the people in your life may find they're better able to tolerate you!
