GABA or gamma-aminobutyric acid is an amino that is naturally produced by our bodies which helps inhibit the firing of neurons in the brain. The overall effect on our systems is an anti-stress, anti-anxiety, calming and relaxing nutrient. It has been used clinically for depressed sex drive, prostate problems, and as a non-addictive tranquilizer substitute. GABA tea is an all-natural source of GABA. Discovered more than 20 years ago by Japanese researchers looking for a natural method to preserve food, they discovered that when tea is exposed to a nitrogen-rich/oxygen free atmosphere the concentration of GABA elements became higher than in any other type of tea. Benefits attributed to GABA tea include: lowering blood pressure, increased mental alertness, weight loss and stress and anxiety relief.
This special GABA oolong tea is made according to EU Safety Standards in a tea garden on the slopes of the mountains of Anxi, Fujian, China, where dense fog and lower temperatures impart a unique complexity to the tea leaves. ThisGABA oolong tea proved to contain copious amounts of GABA in a natural form, over 350 mg per 100 grams of tea, much higher than the Japanese Standard 150mg for GABA Tea.
