GABA

GABA (Inhibitory Neurotransmitter) is a synergistic combination of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), glycine and established traditional botanicals, which serves as a quick response supplement for muscle relaxation. This unique blend of botanicals, amino acids, vitamins and minerals also work to quickly support muscular discomfort. While other therapies with a similar mechanism may cause dependency when used over time, the natural ingredients in GABA (Inhibitory Neurotransmitter) are non-habit forming and work quickly to ease muscle tension.

The combination of glycine and GABA act as inhibitory neurotransmitters, which help calm muscles and reduce the activity of the excitatory nervous system that can cause muscle spasms. Together with magnesium, B6 and select botanicals, the ingredients in GABA (Inhibitory Neurotransmitter) serve as an excellent alternative to valerian-based products. One capsule of GABA (Inhibitory Neurotransmitter) includes 250 mg GABA, 225 mg glycine,200 mg cramp bark and 150 mg Dong quai.

Ingredient Benefits

GABA and Glycine
Both GABA and glycine act as calmatives for nerve impulses and control muscle contractions. GABA is the primary inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain and regulates other neurotransmissions to prevent overstimulation. Glycine is one of three amino acids needed for the synthesis of creatine, which supplies energy to nerve and muscle cells. Elevated amounts of glycine are found in the muscles, skin and other connective tissues. Glycine is also an inhibitory neurotransmitter, and works much like GABA.

Cramp Bark Powder
Cramp bark powder has long been used to alleviate smooth muscle discomfort. Studies have confirmed that cramp bark promotes a relaxant effect. Herbalists recommend cramp bark for discomfort of either a congestive or spasmodic nature.

Dong Quai Root Extract
A perennial botanical native to China and Japan, Dong quai is effective at easing post-exercise muscle soreness, and has long been used medicinally for smooth muscle tension. Dong quai has active ingredients, called coumarins, which dilate blood vessels, balance the central nervous system and increase blood flow.

Clinical usefulness of lipid ratios to identify men and women with metabolic syndrome: a cross-sectional study.
Gasevic D1, Frohlich J, Mancini GJ, Lear SA.
Based on a multiethnic sample, we identified TG/HDL-C cut-off values of 1.62 in men and 1.18 in women that were best able to discriminate between men and women with and without MetSY.
CONCLUSIONS:
Our results indicate that TG/HDL-C is a superior marker to identify men and women with MetSy compared to TC/HDL-C, LDL-C/HDL-C, and nonHDL-C/HDL-C.

Prediction of metabolic syndrome among postmenopausal Ghanaian women using obesity and atherogenic markers.
Arthur FK1, Adu-Frimpong M, Osei-Yeboah J, Mensah FO, Owusu L.
This study was aimed at examining how obesity indicators and related determinants influence metabolic syndrome, and how the factors can be used to predict the syndrome and its cut-offs in postmenopausal Ghanaian women.
The predominant anthropometric marker that significantly influence metabolic risk factors among the pre- and postmenopausal women was waist-to-hip ratio (premenopausal: p- 0.004, 0.026 and 0.002 for systolic blood pressure (SBP), fasting blood glucose (FBG) and HDL-C; postmenopausal: p-0.012, 0.048, 0.007 and 0.0061 for diastolic blood pressure (DBP), FBG, triglyceride (TG) and high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) respectively). Using the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis, the area under the curve for WC, WHR, TG/HDL-C and HDL-C/TC among postmenopausal women were estimated at 0.6, 0.6, 0.8 and 0.8 respectively. The appropriate cut-off values for WC, WHR, TG/HDL-C and HDL-C/TC that predicted the presence of metabolic syndrome were 80.5 cm, 0.84, 0.61 and 0.34 respectively.
CONCLUSION:
The presence of metabolic syndrome among Ghanaian postmenopausal women can be predicted using WC, WHR, TG/HDL-C and HDL-C/TC.

Iron indices and survival in maintenance hemodialysis patients with and without polycystic kidney disease.
Hatamizadeh P1, Ravel V, Lukowsky LR, Molnar MZ, Moradi H, Harley K, Pahl M, Kovesdy CP, Kalantar-Zadeh K.

In MHD patients with and without PKD, there was a U-shaped relationship between the average TSAT and mortality, and a TSAT of 30-40% was associated with the bestsurvival. However, an average ferritin of 100-800 ng/mL was associated with the best survival in PKD patients, whereas that of non-PKD patients was 500-800 ng/mL. Further studies in PKD and non-PKD patients are necessary to determine whether or not therapeutic attempts to keep TSAT and ferritin levels in these ranges will improve survival.

The hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis and melatonin in humans: possible interactions in the control of body temperature.
Mazzoccoli G1, Giuliani A, Carughi S, De Cata A, Puzzolante F, La Viola M, Urbano N, Perfetto F, Tarquini R.
We have investigated on possible interactions between the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis and melatonin in the control of body temperature in humans.


TRH serum levels correlated positively with TSH serum levels at 0200 h (r=0.65, p=0.04) and at 0600 h (r=0.64, p=0.04). Body temperature correlated positively with FT4 serum levels at 1000 h (r=0.63, p=0.04) and negatively with melatonin serum levels at 0200 h (r=-0.64, p=0.04). A clear circadian rhythm was validated for body temperature (with acrophase in the morning) and melatonin, TRH and TSH secretion (with acrophase at night), while FT4 serum level changes presented ultradian periodicity (with acrophase in the morning).


Changes of TSH serum levels are smaller and those of FT4 are greater at night, when melatonin levels are higher, so that the response of anterior pituitary to hypothalamic TRH and of thyroid to hypophyseal TSH may be influenced by the pineal hormone that may modulate the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis function and influence the circadian rhythm of body temperature.

Complex relationship between free thyroxine and TSH in the regulation of thyroid function.
Hoermann R1, Eckl W, Hoermann C, Larisch R.

We propose a refined non-linear model to describe the relationship between TSH and fT(4). It implies that TSH response to a deviating fT(4) value may not be log-linear, but may be disproportionally related to the extent of the deviation from an optimum set point. A better understanding of the complex nature of the TSH-fT(4) relationship may further the development of more precise clinical models and aid in better defining subclinical states of thyroid dysfunction. Also, it may encourage other biological interrelations to be reconsidered in the wake of advanced measurement techniques and more powerful computerized statistical procedures.

The practical use of thyroid function tests.
Feldman JM.
Abstract
The diagnosis of thyroid disorders can usually be established by two tests: the serum T4 and the resin T3 uptake (RT3U). The T4 test measures both free and bound thyroxine; the RT3U reflects the number of binding sites available on thyroid-binding globulin. The values of these two tests can be used to calculate a free thyroxine index (FTI), which gives an approximation of the free T4 in the serum. Measurement of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is useful for the diagnosis of hypothyroidism, while the thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) test may facilitate diagnosis of hyperthyroidism.

Monitoring infection: from blood culture to polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
Book M1, Lehmann LE, Zhang X, Stüber F.
Author information
Abstract
In patients with sepsis, diagnosis of blood stream infection (BSI) is a key concern to the therapist. Direct verification of pathogens in the blood stream executed by blood cultures (BC) still is regarded as the gold standard up to date. The quickest possible initiation of an appropriate antimicrobial therapy is a cornerstone of an effective therapy. Moreover, in this view BC can also serve to identify antimicrobial agents to target the pathogen. However, when employing BC the time needed until microbiological results are available ranges from 24 up to 72 h. Moreover, infections caused by multiple pathogens often remain undetected and concurrent antibiotic therapy may lower the overall sensitivity. Alternative pathogen characterization can be performed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based amplification methods. Results using PCR can be obtained within 6-8 h. Therefore, the time delay until an appropriate therapy can be reduced enormously. Moreover, these methods have the potential to enhance the sensitivity in the diagnosis of blood stream infections. Therefore, PCR based methods might be a valuable adjunct to present procedures of diagnosing bacteraemia.

Association between Glucose Levels and Intraocular Pressure: Pre- and Postprandial Analysis in Diabetic and Nondiabetic Patients.
Pimentel LG1, Gracitelli CP1, da Silva LS1, Souza AK1, Prata TS2.


    There was a significant association between glucose levels variation and IOP change in both diabetic patients (R (2) = 0.540; P < 0.001) and nondiabetic individuals (R (2) = 0.291; P = 0.025). There is also a significant association between the baseline glucose levels and IOP change in diabetic group (R (2) = 0.445; P = 0.001). In a multivariable model, the magnitude of glucose level change remained significantly associated with IOP variation even including age, baseline IOP, ancestry, and gender as a confounding factor (P < 0.001). We concluded that there is a significant association betweenblood glucose levels and IOP variation, especially in diabetic patients.

Syndrome of resistance to thyroid hormone: insights into thyroid hormone action.
Kopp P1, Kitajima K, Jameson JL.

Thyroid hormones (T3, T4) exert multiple cellular effects through nuclear thyroid hormone receptors (TR alpha, TR beta). Thyroid hormone receptors are transcription factors that act by altering patterns of gene expression. Resistance to thyroid hormone (RTH) is a rare disorder caused by mutations in the TR beta gene. Biochemically, the syndrome is defined by elevated circulating levels of free thyroid hormones due to reduced target tissue responsiveness and normal, or elevated, levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). This "inappropriate" TSH elevation contrasts with the situation in hyperthyroidism, where the pituitary secretion of TSH is suppressed.

 Abnormal laboratory tests are the most significant predictor of high levels of radiographic progression, and therefore regarded as indicators of 'poor prognosis RA'. By contrast, laboratory tests are far less predictive of severe long-term outcomes such as work disability and premature mortality than functional difficulties reported on a patient questionnaire.

Elevation of serum lactate dehydrogenase in patients with pectus excavatum.
Kim JJ, Kim CK1, Park HJ, Park JK, Moon SW, Moon YK, Kim HJ.
 In conclusion, only LDH, one of the routine laboratory tests, was significantly elevated than normal value, which was thought to be caused by etiologies of pectus excavatum and the compression of the internal organs. Further studies on LDH including isoenzyme studies in patients with pectus excavatum will be needed, and these studies will provide a deeper and wider comprehension of pectus excavatum.
