How does Green Football Xanax Work?
Green football Xanax is a central nervous system depressant as it interferes with the transmission of electrical messages, passing through the neurons to the brain, through the receptors. The GABA receptor, which is the site of action for alprazolam, is a part of the neurotic pathway, that receives electrical impulses from its source and sends it to the brain for interpretation, and in turn activates the hypothalamus, depending on the level of excitement the interpreted message presents. It blocks the electrical impulse passage as it may cause overload to the brain.
Alprazolam help the GABA receptor work better by enhancing its impulse-blocking ability, thereby reducing the occurrence of panic attacks, anxiety incidents, and the symptoms that accompany them.
