There have been some conflicting reports about the effectiveness of taking GABA as an oral supplement. While it has been shown that GABA in supplements cannot cross the blood-brain barrier, there are still benefits of taking GABA for the peripheral nervous system, on parts of the body outside of the brain. It might be helpful for you to listen to Dr. Lynch's interview on “How MTHFR Affects Your Mood” (http://mthfr.net/how-mthfr-affects-your-mood-interview/2014/10/01/) he does discuss the use of GABA as a supplement in this audio file. GABA supplements may also help support healthy GABA levels by providing building blocks that the body can use to produce GABA internally. *
