  1. Ich habe Angstzustände und Depressionen und schlafe seit Monaten schlecht. Vor kurzem habe ich beschlossen, eine Schlafstudie zu machen, aber ich bin es leid, müde zu sein. Trotz Erschöpfung ist es schwer, einzuschlafen und durchzuschlafen. Ich hatte eine Pille mit 5-HTP, GABA und L-Theanin, die wahre Wunder wirkte. Kürzlich konnte ich dieses Präparat nirgends mehr finden, also habe ich mir jedes einzeln besorgt. Ich habe einige Tage lang 5-HTP, L-Theanin und Baldrianwurzel genommen, bevor ich GABA hinzufügte. Ersteres half mir beim Einschlafen. Als ich GABA hinzufügte, wachte ich erfrischt auf und fühlte mich so lebendig wie seit Monaten nicht mehr. Ich habe keine krankhaften Nebenwirkungen, obwohl mein Appetit zugenommen hat, da ich mehr Energie habe und diese auch nutze. Ich empfehle GABA sehr, trotz der Ungewissheit der Wirksamkeit in Studien. Ich habe Gabapentin eingenommen, das ein Analogon von GABA ist. Ich kann sagen, dass dieses Präparat nicht so stark beruhigt wie Gabapentin, aber es wirkt genauso schnell und hat weniger Nebenwirkungen. https://svetka.info/was-ist-gaba-neurotransmitter-deutsch.html Ich habe meinen Partner, der jahrelang Gabapentin (ein GABA-Analogon) eingenommen hat, gefragt, ob er jemals eine Fokussierung seines Geistes oder eine Entspannung erlebt hat, wie es die GABA-Präparate behaupten. Er antwortete mit einem klaren Nein.
