Hi, I am sorry for my english. My question is for epilepsy . Which medical i need take GABA or 5htp? Thank you

Do not play games: Gaba and 5htp are transmitters of the brain that are said to be involved in epilepsy. Some medications are thought to alter gaba and 5htp but we do not know whether that is what helps with seizures. Any treatment must be monitored carefully for benefit versus side effects. Each patient is unique and must have a trial of medication to see what helps under the supervision of a good doctor. ...Read more

I asked a question about greek yogurt and got an answer and then i made a comment. Please respond to my comment.....L please respond to my comment  thanks

I : I submitted a response just a minute ago. Remember, it takes a little time when trying to write an answer that is specific and helpful. Here is a recap of the response to your comment the calories will differ depending on which yogurt you buy. For instant non-fat plain chobania yogurt has less calories than chobani low fat plain yogurt. I was just looking up some stats on chobani greek yogurt, so that you can compare them. Chobani non-fat plain yogurt: 100 calories in 170 gram serving with 7 grams of sugar 0, grams of fat and 18 grams of protein. Calorie breakdown: 0% fat, 28% carbs, 72% protein. Chobani lowfat black cherry greek yogurt: 140 calories, 22 grams of carbs, 14 grams of protein and 0 grams of fat. Calorie breakdown: 0% fat, 61% carbs, 39% protein. Chobani low fat plain greek yogurt: 160 calories, 5 grams of fat, 9 grams of carbohydrate and 22 grams of protein. Calorie breakdown: 27% fat, 21% carbs, 52% protein. Fatsecret.Com is a site that shows the nutritional facts labels for different food products. Look under food data base and calorie counter. What is more important that the actual number of calories for a gylcemic index is the ratio of fats, to carbs, to protein. I hope this information is helpful. ...Read more
