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.

Cellulose (capsule), silica and magnesium stearate (vegetable source).

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.
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.
Deep and relaxing sleep

I was prescribed these by my naturopath and have never looked back. Whenever i have trouble sleeping, I take two of these and sometimes some magnesium and I drift into a beautiful sleep in no time.

This Helps me Sleep
Posted by Reviewer2329814 on Sep 04, 2016
I use one capsule of GABA and one capsule of L-theanine to help me sleep at night. This seems to work for me. I had been prescribed anti-depressants for years and think they may have damaged my ability to sleep unaided. Or perhaps the reason for depression was my ability to sleep was damaged. Who knows. In any case, the two together do not seem to have any side effects other than helping me able to sleep better. I have had my blood work done and the doctor is happy with my liver function and other common markers of health.
