GABA tea is a natural and healthy beverage that offers many health benefits. GABA tea is a perfect choice if you are seeking a way to unwind, de-stress, and improve your sleep.

GABA tea is rich in gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), a naturally occurring amino acid that promotes relaxation and soothes the nerves. GABA tea offers a variety of health benefits, including reducing anxiety, improving sleep, and lowering blood pressure.

What is GABA?

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a natural non-protein amino acid that is a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in mammals' central nervous system (CNS). It plays a crucial role in regulating brain activity and various bodily functions. GABA deficiency can lead to symptoms like anxiety, restlessness, fatigue, and worry. By calming the overactive CNS, GABA brings a sense of calmness and tranquility, promoting relaxation and relieving tension.

Benefits of GABA Tea

GABA tea provides numerous health benefits, including:

  • Anxiety and stress relief: GABA binds to receptors in the brain, promoting relaxation and easing anxiety and stress.
  • Improved sleep: GABA helps induce sleep and improves sleep quality.
  • Lower blood pressure: GABA dilates blood vessels, reducing blood pressure.
  • Enhanced memory: GABA promotes the growth of nerve cells, improving memory.
  • Other benefits: GABA also possesses anti-aging, antioxidant, and immune-modulating properties.

How is GABA Tea Made?

GABA tea is produced through an anaerobic fermentation process. Under anaerobic conditions, the amino acids in tea leaves are converted into GABA.

GABA Pu'erh raw tea not only possesses the flavor characteristics of traditional Pu'erh tea, such as bright green-yellow soup color, lasting and tender aroma, rich and mellow taste with a sweet aftertaste, and neat and soft leaf base but also contains:

  • A high content of GABA.
  • Anti-anxiety.
  • Promoting sleep.

This tea uses fresh leaves from ecologically organic tea gardens as raw materials. It is processed using patented equipment, allowing you to enjoy the deliciousness of Pu'erh tea while ingesting high-quality GABA.
