Product Description

Size: 200

GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) is a non-essential amino acid found mainly in the human brain and eyes.  It is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter, which means it regulates brain and nerve cell activity by inhibiting the number of neurons firing in the brain.  GABA is referred to as the "brain's natural calming agent".  By inhibiting over-stimulation of the brain, GABA may help promote relaxation and ease nervous tension.*  NOW provides only the naturally occurring form as found in food and in the body.

It seems to help me relax at night, get to sleep and stay asleep.
Sharon A Ross
I'm not sure why these had pretty much the opposite effect on me than what was stated they should do, but they definitely did not work for me.

After years of dealing with anxiety and insomnia, I have to write that this product has helped tremendously.

I have a lot of problems with mood swings and anxiety. GABA has really helped me control these emotions quite well. They reduce my anxiety and help me relax. It even helps me sleep through the night. It's a solid supplement overall that definitely does the trick for mild problems. Taking it with 5-HTP Bulk Powder 10 Grams helps even more which I have been adding lately. If I take it at night with GABA, the biggest added benefit that I can tell is how I wake up. Right away, I feel good which is a great way to start the day. This doesn't always happen this way and I think this also has to do with my diet and what I eat late at night, but one thing I know for sure is these supplements are helping, not hurting.

We are grateful for GABA. Our son has ADHD and using this product has help us manage his hyper-activity so he can focus more. We definitely did not want to put him on any more prescibe medication.

After taking this product for a little over 6 months, I have to admit that it works. After years of dealing with anxiety and insomnia, I have to write that this product has helped tremendously.

When I first started taking it, I'll note that I had to initially take it every other day and found that the evening was the best time to take it. There were some side effects of minor stomach pain that eventually went away and I now take one capsule every evening at around 6 PM.

What I like most is that I now sleep and it's restful sleep that lasts the whole night. It's been years since I've slept a full 8 hours and I wake up feeling well.

Is it for everyone and will it work for everyone that way it worked for me? I don't have that answer. It was worth a try in my case and I'm going to continue taking it every evening just to be able to have the good night's sleep that I get.

I studied GABA and the brain and decided that trying this would help me relax better. Well that was an understatement. I was lethargic and didn't care about anything for about 2 weeks after taking one a day. I stopped and went to L-Tyrosine as the GABA was too strong for me. I highly recommend it for many stressed people but perhaps it should come in a 250mg size as the 500mg kicked my hiney. I keep it around for when I have to fly (redeye) or other times of stress. Very good stuff.

Just to clear up some misleading information..
Niacin is also known as Vitamin B3. B vitamins can be consumed through supplementation or food sources. If any of you take a B complex, eat foods containing vitamin B3, or even a multi vitamin, the aid in transportation is there. Inositol(which is actually directly related to niacin) and a few others also work in the same way regarding GABA and the blood brain barrier. Not everyone taking GABA is experiencing a placebo effect. I have taken it a few times, and it does indeed help me relax towards bedtime.

I love this product especially since I have suffered with anxiety for years. I just take one in the morning and one just before I go to sleep. All day I am relaxed and all night I sleep like a baby. I will not live without this product. I wish I found it sooner!!!

I take 3 of the 750 mg and I get a good night sleep and wake up without any grogginess. I rarely take Ambien now. This is supposed to help me reduce cravings and emotional eating too.

I have several autoimmune disorders and there have been times when pain has kept me from falling asleep because of severe muscle spasms. My son, who advises his clients on nutrition, told me that NOW is a very good company whose products are USA-made. So when the owner of a nutrition product store recommended this product several years ago, I bought some and it truly added to the sleep medication I'd been taking without ANY morning after-effects.

I mentioned it to my neurologist, and she was floored. She said that one of my autoimmune disorders' issues is my lack of the medication that affect GABA receptors. I concert with Valium, which opens the receptors, this product provides me with medication that I really lack. She plans on recommending it to other patients with the same disorder.
