    I wish it were that simple.

    Now that I'm back to trying some individual strains, and I really need GABA, I'm going to try Lactobacillus Rhamnosus for GABA production and increased GABA receptor expression.

    It worked on animals.....?

    Converts glutamate to GABA, in testing.

    Don't know, hope so.

    Yes, your microbiome is involved in neurotransmitter production. Are people still getting surprised about this?

    i'm gonna try it too. also because i saw a paper cited showing rhamnosus could degrade mycotoxins in the body (in mice and chickens or something...) i was thinking about

    how is it going?

    According to wiki [:redface:], hydroxybutyric acids "can be viewed as derivatives of butyric acid". I'm not sure what the significance of 'can be' is in the context of mammalian physiology. Can anyone help?

    Butyric acid is a product of gut bacteria, notably Clostridium butyricum - see this thread.

    Incidentally, the sodium salt of gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid is sodium oxybate (trade name Xyrem) - see this thread.

    I am looking for suggestions to counter excessive GABA in the morning following taking probx at bed time in the previous night. At 6:30 I take my T3/T4 replacement which isn't enough anymore to take me out of bed. I will try to take a higher dose of it but I had detrimental effects in the past (tension in the face muscles, i.e. violent teeth clenching :nervous:). I just won't wake up before 10 when I have taken probx. At least I am having interesting dreams and sleeping very well :sleep: ( @JPV )
