Product Overview

Description

  • 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.

No different than regular GABA but a lot more expensive.

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.

helps good sleep

It helps me to have deep sleep but beware if you'd never taken these kind of supplement food, you may feel drowsy for first few days.

PharmaGABA is helping resolve my multiple health problems.

Posted by 4748023997025657158 on Jul 13, 2014

I have anxiety, low energy, acid reflux and gastritis. I have tried other GABA supplements with a little but of success. I heard a lot of good things about this one (had been recommended on a naturopath's website as the best form of GABA) so I decided to try it. The main reason I got it was for my stomach issues, as I have read studies that esophageal function is regulated by GABA and that GABA reduces inflammation such as that which you'd have with gastritis. Not only is it helping with my heartburn and gastritis, it's also helping me stay focused, improving my energy, and keeps me from getting jittery after my morning coffee. Overall it makes my life so much better. It's the best GABA product I've tried and I plan on sticking to it. Right now I'm taking 2/day and may try increasing to 3/day (1 in am, 1 in afternoon and 1 before bed).
