What is GABA Tea?
High blood pressure, stress and insomnia will affect one in three people at some point in their life. In the past people have simply taken medication in order to combat these disorders, but as research develops we are more aware about the long term effects medication has on our body. In response to this research there has been a resurgence of natural remedies which can be effectively added to the diet to compliment these treatments. The Japanese were way ahead of us, discovering the benefits of GABA in 1984 and since then they have perfected a tea that has been proven to lower blood pressure, decrease anxiety and aid relaxation.
GABA is a naturally occurring substance that is found in all types of green, oolong and black teas. The tea must be of the highest grade, the more premium the tea is, the higher the natural glutamic acid content. Great care goes into producing GABA Tea, and ten days before the harvest the tea is shaded helping to further increase the glutamic acid content. Once the tea is harvested it is placed into large vats and the oxygen is replaced with nitrogen which aids the fermenting process and is left for eight to ten hours.
It has been since the late 1980’s that GABA tea has been actively sold as an effective method of reducing high blood pressure and lowering stress levels. GABA acts as an inhibitor which causes the blood vessels in the muscle lining to relax and thus increases blood flow. As a result psychiatrists are now increasingly prescribing GABA tea as a non-addictive alternative to anxiety patients.
But taste is also important, tea deserves to be enjoyed. GABA Tea has a refreshing taste, with no bitter aftertaste and if you were looking for a comparison, it shares similarities with black tea. GABA Tea can be made from a variety of teas such as oolong, black tea and green tea meaning that you can find a flavour that suits your taste and best of all, it can be enjoyed hot or cold.
