Product Overview


  • Dietary Supplement
  • Available Exclusively From Thorne Research
  • Non-Habit Forming, Non-Drowsy
  • The Only Natural-Source GABA
  • Promotes A Calm, Relaxed, Focused State Of Mind

Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a major neurotransmitter widely distributed throughout the central nervous system. Because too much excitation can lead to irritability, restlessness, sleeplessness, and spasmodic movements, this excitation needs to be balanced with inhibition. GABA – the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain – can provide this inhibition, acting like a "brake" during times of runaway stress. In addition, studies also indicate GABA can promote relaxation and enhance sleep.

It is thought that either low GABA levels or decreased GABA function in the brain may have an adverse impact on neurological health.

The natural GABA in Thorne's PharmaGABA-100 is produced via a fermentation process that utilizes Lactobacillus hilgardii, the bacteria used to ferment vegetables in the preparation of the traditional Korean cabbage dish known as kimchi. Clinical studies show this natural form of GABA can increase the production of alpha-waves in the brain, creating a profound sense of physical relaxation while maintaining mental focus. In contrast, the stress-related beta-waves in the brain are decreased. In addition to changes in brain waves, natural PharmaGABA has been shown to produce relaxation, as evidenced by reduced pupil diameter, heart rate, and two natural markers of stress – salivary cortisol and chromogranin A. In a head-to-head, double-blind trial of natural PharmaGABA versus synthetic GABA, synthetic GABA did not demonstrate these positive effects.

Worked but

Posted by 5630085197586504306 on Oct 07, 2016

I thought I would feel more relaxed than I hoped. I still do take it when I feel my anxiety spiking, however I don't find that it has helped much nor has it not helped much. It's somewhere in the middle for me. I did not feel drowsy or tired. Sometimes I felt that it increased my anxiety for a short period of time after I have taken the pill (like after 4 hours

Anxiety buster

I love this product so much. It helps me sleep better and feel calmer in stressful situations. If I had to choose one supplement to take with me to a deset island, it would be this.
