Baclofen acts on the spinal cord nerves and decreases the number and severity of muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis or spinal cord diseases. It also relieves pain and improves muscle movement. Baclofen comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It usually is taken three times a day at evenly spaced intervals. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take baclofen exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. This drug must be taken regularly for a few weeks before its full effect is felt.
Sleep is crucial for athletes because this is the time when recovery takes place. Bodybuilders can benefit from GABA use to help them relax after a strong workout, and to help them improve their sleep as part of a supplemental stack.
Another benefit that hasn't been touched on yet in this article, is the fact that extra GABA in the brain increases HGH (human growth hormone). In rat studies, when GABA was injected into their brains, a drug analog called baclofen caused HGH to rise.
Regarding studies in humans, it has been shown that taking GABA before workouts increased HGH by a whopping 500%, once the workout was completed.
