He knows how to tap into the fitness needs and desires of the masses and unlock the potential of the human body though interest-driven exercise. What they love best is educating and entertaining North Americans by unlocking the mysteries of diet, environment, culture, and lifestyle that can make you the picture of optimal health!

The GABA Plan

Stress is North Americas #1 silent killer. It contributes to heart disease, immune system breakdown, sleep interruption, anxiety depression and even cancer. Together, from an inside and out perspective, Bryce Wylde and Brent Bishop will teach you how to kick your stress to the curb and rev up your feel-good using diet and exercise. 

Gamma amino butyric acid, or GABA for short, is more than an amino acid. It is also one of the central nervous system’s most important neurotransmitters (a type of brain hormone).  It stimulates receptors that inhibit, or calm down, over activity in the brain. We all need more of that!  

Known to promote brain health by reducing anxiety, improving sleep and providing an overall sense of calm, the neurotransmitter GABA acts as a messenger to regulate various functions throughout the body. When GABA levels are optimal, your weight is too!

GABA is the metabolic byproduct of plants and microorganisms. While GABA is not found in fresh food, it can be found in fermented foods, and certain foods can stimulate your body to produce more of it. GABA can also be made in much higher amounts in the brain during physical activity.

Bryce has used GABA in diet and supplement form successfully in therapeutic clinical setting for over a decade in cases of anxiety, insomnia, obesity, stress, and hypertension. (A study published in a 2009 issue of the Journal of Clinical Biochemistry and Nutrition found that therapeutic doses of GABA helped reduce mild high blood pressure.)

Here’s what most folks don’t know: GABA is created through the process of fermentation. In fact, fermented foods are the only reasonable dietary source of GABA. [Bryce will demo all foods] 

When lactobacillus fermentation conditions are optimal, GABA production by microorganisms is increased!  In this day and age, most of us have dysbiosis (aka improper balance of good/bad bacteria in the gut). So, correcting this using probiotics and supporting with fermented foods leads to multiple side benefits. 

Here’s how to HIIT your brain up for more GABA through diet

The GABA diet is a simple one: add one fermented food of choice to every meal. 

Ideas include: kefir, miso, sauerkraut, tempeh, yogurt, pickles, and even others you have yet to explore like Natto, Kimchi, and raw cheese. 

Kimchi, is a traditional Korean dish. As fermented cabbage that tastes both spicy and sour, it has been fermented with lactobacillus which contains GABA and it also promotes general gut health. 

Natto is a popular dish in Japan consisting of fermented soybeans.  Natto contains the extremely powerful probiotic bacillus subtilis, which has been proven to support the immune system and cardiovascular health. It also enhances the digestion of vitamin K2. In addition to these Natto benefits, it contains a powerful anti-inflammatory enzyme called nattokinase that has been proven to fight cancer and prevent blood clotting. 

Raw milk cheeses are made with milk that hasn’t been pasteurized. Goat milk, sheep milk and other soft cheeses are particularly high in probiotics, including thermophillus, bifudus, bulgaricus and acidophilus. 

Also, the GABA diet suggests drinking fermented beverages at least three times daily like Kombucha. Pu Erh tea for example contains significant amounts of GABA.  A study published in a 2011 issue of the Journal of Biomedical Science supports this claim. The researchers found Pu-Erh tea leaves to contain large amounts of the actual bioactive form of GABA. 

Scientists are learning more about the brain – gut connection and how gut health and probiotic status can calm the brain. By increasing fermented foods in your diet, you just may be able to achieve the calm, collected, and focused state you’ve been searching for. 

Just like there is an ideal diet to increase GABA, there is also the right exercise routine that will make more naturally! What has been known for some time is that folks who exercise have better mental fitness. A recent imaging study from UC Davis Health System shows why. Intense exercise increases levels gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA — that is responsible for ideal chemical messaging within the brain!

What will help you to make much more GABA is a type of exercise called HIIT (high intensity interval training). From a metabolic standpoint, vigorous exercise is the most demanding activity the brain encounters, much more intense than calculus or chess, but nobody knows what happens with all that energy. But, one thing is for sure: it is making more GABA.

Here’s how to HIIT your brain up for more GABA through exercise

Best of all, you don’t need a fancy gym, machines, or weights. You don’t even need much time. From an evolutionary perspective, this is also how we were built to exercise. 

Warm up, then do one minute full out, as hard as you can go. [Brent will demo given exercise] You want to get your heart rate way up, creating an oxygen deficit. You should be breathing very hard. If you can’t do a full minute, do 20-40 seconds. Push hard, and get your heart rate up. It’s good to feel a burn in your muscles.

Follow with 2 minutes of relaxed, active recovery: walking, stretching, or going more slowly with given exercise Brent to demo intervals of pushups, burpees, and other body weight exercises. This is one interval. Do 3 to 8 of these every other day. That is all the cardio you need to significantly boost your GABA.
