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.

Use GABA For Sleep!!!
Use GABA For Sleep!!!
I am a life long insomniac and nothing works for me except as a spot type solution. I have the 'can't turn off my mind' thing. The brand I was using sent a bad batch, so I tried the NOW brand. The quality is much better and cheaper, too. Ambien, etc only works occasionally for me. GABA works every time! If I am really stirred up, it might not work, but by this time in life, I can turn my mind down to 'normal' continuous activity. GABA can work with that. I've been taking it for four months now and it still works effectively every time. I take 1.5 grams just before bed.
It works, I definately feel less stress when I take it. However, for some reason it makes me itch/burn ALL OVER my body a few minutes after I use it. The feeling is similar to taking niacin except I don't turn red and it only lasts for about 5-10 minutes. Also, the last time I used it I started feeling paranoid, like a bad highschool episode of experimenting with "ahem" grass. My heartbeat was slowed down significantly and my legs were so relaxed I didn't want to move, but I was having the strangest sensation that I was going to die from the GABA powder. That the GABA powder was going to kill me. So I couldn't fall asleep. LOL it was kind of funny but not at the same time. For reference, I only took the recommended dosage so no, I was not ODing lol. Anyway, not for me unless I'm having a bad panic attack because it works very very quickly.
Impossible to measure the 1/4 teaspoon

I bought the powder version...what a regret! Impossible to measure 1/4 of a teaspoon without a very precise scale.

Stopped using benzos with this. 6-years continous benzo user and with this quitting was pretty much piece of cake. Helped just enough to get over withdrawals. I almost wont believe this and btw this is my first day without this powder. So no addiction for this stuff. :))
