Sorry about not writing back sooner but I only have access to this e-mail address on the weekends. GABA stands for Gamma-aminobutyric acid and is classified as an inhibitory neurotransmitter. According to the information sheet that I received with my order, GABA does the following. GABA is suppose to have a tranquilizing affect, improve sleep, and stimulate secretion of human growth hormone. It may help to prevent anxiety and stress and is also used for individuals with epilepsy and ADD.
So far Matthew is found to allergic to wheat, yeast, milk, sesame, cranberry and tomatoes (Pizza is his favorite food). Just, recently, he was found to have a yeast infection as been deficient in a number of vitamins (riboflavin, Vit C, etc.). Beacuse of these conditions, he has been taking Cod Liver Oil, urecholine, GABA, Probiotics and Yeast control. As far as his improvements... Matthew (age 7) has began to express his opinion. If he doesn't want to do something, he will tell me NO. Even though this can be frustrating, it is wonderful that he can tell me. Breaking his routine has not been provoking tantrums from him as it has in the past. He has been teasing his sister and has begun to "tattling" on her. He also has been testing his limits with myself and my parents. For example, for breakfast, his almond milk contains alot of meds (very bitter). If he drinks all of his milk, he can have bacon which he loves. Before he would comply but now he will sneak his hand very slowly to the napkin where the bacon is, with a grin on his face. Matthew is been improving with socialization. Before his medications, he would play by himself. Now he interacts with other. He still has problems answering direct questions. I still provide appropriate answers for him to choose from but it is improving. I honestly do not which med has been helping him the most or whether it has been the combination of the elimination diet and meds. If you haven't looked into allergy testing, I would read up on it and ask your physician. I hope I gave you some helpful information. Take care.
