Gamma amino butyric acid (GABA)

Catalytically converted from glutamic acid through glutamate decarboxylase, GABA, a kind of natural non-protein amino acid, is an important neurotransmitter of the central nervous system for mammals. GABA can be found in our eye retinas and encephalon with high concentration. It also rarely exists in plant seeds germ, vegetables and fruits. As the glutamate decarboxylase in the rice embryo is more active, it is quite suitable for producing functional food rich in gamma amino butyric acid. Study has found that the rice embryo rich in GABA can suppress the increase of the high blood pressure, which sterling GABA and soybeans, wheat, tomatoes and bean sprouts rich in GABA cant do. Apart from the effect of GABA, the physiologically activity of the rice embryo rich in GABA results from the combination with other ingredients in the rice embryo. Therefore, the GABA extracted from the rice embryo will sure become the main raw material of medicines and functional food.


Effects of GABA

To exercise the brain and calm the nerves: GABA can effectively improve blood circulation, increase oxygen to the brain, adjust nerve cells in the supply of brain function and promote metabolism, exercising the brain and calming the nerves. To improve sleep: GABA can let the stimulate brain cells rest and restrain nerve cells to be over-excited, improving the sleep.To adjust blood pressure: GABA can boost the blood flow to the brain, increase the supply of oxygen to the brain and promote metabolism of the brain.

In dairy products:GABA strengthened dairy product is a kind of creative combination. GABA can further enhance the functions of the dairy products, meet more peoples requirement, and make them more competitive. With the rapid development of Chinese dairy products, the demand of the consumer will be higher and higher, which with no doubt will make the GABA strengthened dairy products become the most competitive dairy product in the dairy consumption market. In health products:GABA is not only advocated as green food and organic food ingredients in the 21st century, but also is the ideal senile disease prevention health food and medicine.
