To conclude, nutrition in a pill or a plate, would certainly tilt the argument in favor of natural whole foods as opposed to daily supplements. Supplements can never take the place of whole foods. However, in specific cases dietary supplements are recommended even by health professionals and research by Universities suggest the same. Athletes may consider taking these supplements if the daily protein and carbohydrate requirement is not met by natural foods. But in the fight between supplements versus whole food nutrition, natural wholesome food is miles ahead.
Hmmmm interesting. Funny you mention it because I was taking gaba not too long ago and it was in a mixture with some other stuff. Anyways, I think it was causing me to wake up kind of uncoordinated and feeling just kind of weird. Dissociative I guess you could say, which makes sense because it’s related to the NMDA receptors somehow I think. It supposedly “can’t” cross the blood brain barrier, at least this is repeated despite the fact that it can and does, it’s just an unreliable mechanism in which it does. Low levels of gaba were insinuated to absorb more in the brain also. I didn’t have this issue as if I took the full 750 mg I felt very strange consistently and none of the other supplements in the mixture would seem to do this.
