Cuts the sharpest edge off anxiety
Posted by Reviewer1586944 on May 08, 2015
Not much to say about this product. Relaxes little bit but nowhere near enough for me. Noticable effect though. If gaba works for you I reccommend now foods gaba powder. Cheaper and more potent.
True Calm is nice

Has a somewhat calming effect, very slightly helps with mild anxiety. Better than nothing.

It does relax you, especially at bed time, however, the GABA may have some serious side effects for some people with high blood pressure. I had a medical procedure scheduled and took two True Calm capsules within a 6 hour period. My BP spiked to a dangerous level and the procedure was cancelled. At the time I did not know it could have been the True Calm and wrote it off to anxiety. Several weeks later I took another capsule and again my BP spiked. All ingredients are safe except the GABA. Please research before you consider this supplement.

if melatonin doesn't help you
Posted by Anaterma on Aug 26, 2013
i find this one more potent than source natural's combo of theanine and relora (which also has gaba in it). this one gave me a much better sleep and mood but only for first two weeks of taking it. afterwards the effect wore out so now i'm back to having some trouble sleeping, unfortunately. gonna continue using this altogether with tryptophane supplement. later on plan on taking gaba separately in a higher dose. i think adding valerian root to this is redundant if not useless as it didn't help me at all when taken separately. also i like the additional vitamins but i'm not a fan of an idea of taking 1000% of anything anyhow. there's still a good result physically wise, my pms is down, also it's easier to work out and skin and everything looks fine. gave three stars bcuz it didn't aid to getting calmer even thou it's in its name.
Relaxed my nerves, but it kept me wide awake at night

I bought this to help with my chronic insomnia, it made it worse. I read good reviews saying that it helped them to sleep better. The first night,I took 2 one hour before bedtime time and it kept me up until 1:00. I had to take benedryl to get me to sleep. The 2nd night, I took 1 one hour before bedtime, it did the same thing, made my insomnia worse. I think it maybe the additional of vitamin B was keeping me up. I find that I was calmer the next morning.
Not so good

It didn't do much for my anxiety and depression
Good combination of ingredients but not for sleep

I find it's a very good combination of ingredients for those who have anxiety and can be very useful taken before an stressful activity (like an exam) but it does not work as a sleep aid. If you want an sleep aid try with valerian
Seems to work....

for a couple of hours for me, then wears off. Then I forget to take it again throughout the day since I'm busy at work.

I have a very high level stressful job. True Calm works ok. I find that Relora and 5-HTP works better for me. I just received the Holy Basil, so I will see how that works.

I used them before bed to relax.
