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 L-form as found in food and in the body.

Severe anxiety in freshman year at college was seriously hurting my daughter. She started taking GABA when my sister told me it worked for her anxiety filled children & her husband. My daughter is more like her old self and it only took a few days for the GABA to help her. We tried depression meds from her Dr. that made her so uncomfortable she had a panic attack. The fact that GABA is all natural, no worries of overdose or withdrawal make this a perfect answer to anxiety problems.
I decided to try this product after reading reviews about the benefits of GABA for people with moderate to severe anxiety. I have been searching for a natural product that may help control the symptoms of anxiety (tremors, shakiness...) rather than taking prescribed benzodiazepines. I took GABA first thing in the morning before breakfast. Within the first 10 minutes of taking this product, I experienced a strange sensation, perhaps the niacin flush that is described by others. I experienced rapid heartbeat, nausea, and a sudden increase in my body temperature. GABA seemed to help me relax a bit, and it did help to lessen a little of the shakiness/tremor associated with highly anxious people. I am not sure if I would recommend GABA supplements to people as I have some concerns regarding the safety of taking this supplement. I have a kidney issue and noticed that every time I took this supplement, one of my kidneys seemed to react to it. I asked my doctor about the safety of taking this supplement and was told that "if it is not harming you then it is ok to take it, especially if it seems to be helping, but it is not something I would recommend." GABA seems to work for many people, your experience might be different than mine, however as for me I am not taking this supplement anymore due to health reasons and concerns.
I like it

I usually take GABA if I can't fall asleep after an hectic day. I decided to buy the higher amount of GABA and was dead wrong to do so. I suffered depression the next day and felt emotionally very instable . When I went back to the low dose it disappeared. So be aware when you take high dose. Sometimes it takes a while to find out whats wrong , thats why I write this review to say that in some cases less is more.

I use this because I have insomnia. At first it was helping; the last time I took it didn't help. I don't use it every night but I've used GABA from another brand and it helped, which is why I tried this. Label says use on an empty stomach, which I did.
