The Bubble Calm ingredient that sounds a little intimidating- Gamma Aminobutyric Acid. Whew. Although trying to say this ingredient may be difficult, this ingredient has been used throughout history to combat anxiety. While some of our functional ingredients seem more familiar to customers- like Chamomile Extract, we figured we should explain what exactly goes in our gum and how it works.
So the three active ingredients in Bubble Calm include Valerian Root Extract, Chamomile Extract, And Gamma Aminobutyric Acid. So I know you are all wondering what in the world is Gamma Aminobutyric Acid? Well Gamma Aminobutyric Acid or GABA is the most ’scientific’ of Bubble Calm’s active ingredients. GABA is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter because it blocks, or inhibits a certain brain signal and decreases activity in your nervous system. In other words, when you are feeling stress or anxiety your GABA receptors are moving hyperactively, the GABA inside of Bubble Calm attach to the GABA receptors in your body and slow the activity down effectively calming your anxiety and promoting relaxation. In the simplest of terms, GABA is good.
