Picamilon is a nutritional supplement which chemically binds GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid) with Niacin (Vitamin B3). The theory behind Picamilon is that the vasodilator effects of Niacin, which widen the blood vessels, allows it to penetrate the blood brain barrier. As GABA is not able to cross the blood-brain barrier on its own, bonding GABA with Niacin may allow GABA to get into the brain where it can produce its anti-anxiety effects.
