GABA + ulcers = good: I actually looked this up in the british journal of pharmacology (bhargava kp et al. 1985, march). The upshot of this articleis that "gaba in the central nervous system exerts an inhibitory effect on stress-induced ulcerogenesis." that is, it calms you down, and what's eating you mentally (stress effects), stops eating on your gastric lining. There are other citations that support this.
