Holiday shopping wearing you down?
Possibly a case of the winter blues?
Sweater knitting stressing you out?
All of the above?
If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, chances are you could be low in gamma-aminobutyric acid or GABA.
What is gamma-aminobutyric acid???
Gamma-aminobutyric acid is an amino acid that acts as a transmitter sending messages to the nervous system and brain. In other words, GABA aids in the body's response to stress and anxiety. Studies have shown lower than normal GABA levels can be linked to depression, panic attacks and sleep disorders.
Before you call the Doctor or pop a pill, have you entertained the possibility of a holistic approach?
Other than the traditional exercising, meditation, and catching more zzzz's you can also increase GABA levels by eating some of the following foods:
- Brown Rice
- Noni Fruit
Yes! Noni Fruit! Don't be surprised. Noni is renowned for it's natural properties. Studies have shown noni fruit can aid in increasing GABA levels thus reducing stress.The best way to receive these anti-stress properties is to consume the fruit raw. That's wonderful if you live in Hawaii or somewhere the fruit is native. For the rest of us Steve Frailey and Hawaiian Organic Noni has developed an answer: Noni Fruit Leather
Grown on our family operated certified organic noni farm, the trees are lovingly cared for and the noni picked at their peak maturity for maximum potency. The fruit is then dried at 115 degrees for over 60 hours locking all the noni goodness inside. No vitamins or enzymes were harmed in the making of noni fruit leather. Ever! Whether it's gift giving or shoveling snow, from his tree to your doorstep, Steve Frailey has you covered.
Happy Holidays and a Stress Free New Year from all of us at Hawaiian Organic Noni!
