The primary difference between GABA and other types of teas is the way it’s processed: during oxidation, GABA is exposed to a nitrogen-rich environment (as opposed to the typical exposure to oxygen). Japanese researchers discovered a few decades ago that this process enhances naturally-occurring GABA in the tea. It has a deep fruitiness of flavour, with notes of Japanese plum, cinnamon and molasses – delicious and easy to drink.
What is GABA? GABA is short for gamma-aminobutyric acid – a naturally occurring amino acid utilised by the human nervous system. It primarily acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the function of adult nervous systems. GABA is also used in supplemental form to encourage anti-anxiety and relaxation. Because of its calming and soothing effects, GABA also lowers blood pressure, helps control hypoglycaemia, prevents anxiety and promotes restful sleep. It also may regulate appetite, helping to maintain an optimal weight.
