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.
As a dietary supplement, take 1/4 level teaspoon one or more times daily as needed, preferably on an empty stomach. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW Taurine, Relora and Magnesium.

iHerb Customer Reviews
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.
Gaba is brilliant! I don't know why there is so many mixed reviews of GABA over the net... Let me tell you it works brilliantly, and like someone mentioned before; it is quite like diazepam but less intense, no tolerance, addiction etc. 5 stars. I also mix this in my drinks no prob.

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. :))
Good for sleep & anxiety

I used GABA for about a month and It really helps me to reduce anxiety and my sleep was much better when i took it. But i read recently there is a possibility of ovulation failure when taking GABA and indeed my ovulation was delayed for two days this month. It never happened before. Probably it's just a coincidence but i decided to stop taking it as I'm trying to get pregnant. I was taking about 1 gram a day, dividing it to 4 portions to take through the day. I also took rhodiola rosea, magnesium citrate, B6 and inositol together with GABA. Good product anyway and the delivery was very fast to Kazakhstan, good service

Gives me a centred calm at 250 mg. Takes away all those racing thoughts. Going through a nervous wreck at the moment due to bereavement and illness, and it makes me feel much much more calmer.
