What effect does γ-aminobutyric acid have on human health?

How many of us know about γ-aminobutyric acid? What kind of substance is it? γ-aminobutyric acid (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a widespread amino acid found in plants, microorganisms, and vertebrates. It is an important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system.

Our common γ-aminobutyric acid is a white crystalline powder, a natural active substance, molecular formula C4H9NO2, molecular weight 103.12, CAS No.56-12-2, EINECS No.200-258-6. γ-aminobutyric acid can usually exist in solution in two forms, that is, negatively charged carboxyl group and positively charged aminoamphoteric ions, because of the electrostatic interaction between amphoteric ions, so γ-aminobutyric acid in the solution can form a gaseous molecular conformation and a solid molecular conformation, mainly in the form of multi-molecular conformation coexist. This plays an important role in the physiological function of γ-aminobutyric acid.

γ-aminobutyric acid is a non-protein amino acid with, a small molecular weight, safe use, good water solubility, and thermal stability, often used in food, beverage, and other industries, in addition, γ-aminobutyric acid has a variety of physiological effects, can play a role in reducing blood pressure and improve sleep quality.
