Expiration Date:Expiration Date
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is a non-protein amino acid that functions as a neurotransmitter in the human brain. GABA is known as the brain's own calming agent and is naturally produced in the body. By inhibiting over-stimulation of the brain, GABA may help promote relaxation and ease nervous tension. NOW provides only the naturally occurring form as found in food and in the body. Delicious orange flavor NOW Chewable GABA combines this naturally occurring neurotransmitter with the amino acids Taurine and Theanine for their synergistic effects.

I tried these after going through two bottles of Natural Factors. I love that they don't contain sugar, but the taste is pretty jarring. Not terrible though - and let's face it -- supplements shouldn't taste like candy! I actually thought this product worked better than the Natural Factor chewables -- it definitely does the job. I take them whenever I am especially stressed out -- they're my secret weapon when it comes to flying on a plane!
Not for Bipolar

I have Bipolar with Anxiety. I took 2 pills at night. I slept great, however shortly after, I was set off into higher anxiety for over a week. I returned the pills as I don't think they are for me.
Much better results than other Gaba products

I had someone with extreme anxiety try this product and it does takes the edge off. Earlier we have been using the Natural Factors Pharma Gaba product because it claims to cross the blood brain barrier better than conventional gaba. After going through a bottle of the NOW product I feel this is more effective. I know the conventional wisdom believes that gaba does not cross the Blood Brain Barrier very well. But, I will say this product does work noticeably better than any other gaba product we have tried. As others have said here, it is a good idea to let them dissolve in your mouth and try to absorb as much as possible sub lingually. It should be noted that these chewable wafers also contain Theanine, Inostitol and Taurine. There may be some interaction with these that makes the gaba more effective. The Theanine and Taurine are amino acids that are known to help with relaxation and are more effective when taken on an empty stomach. Inostitol is part of the B vitamin family and aids in relaxation. I also like that NOW sweetens the wafers with xylotol and not sugar. I like this product and give it 5 stars for being even somewhat effective in a product category where very few products work consistently and thoroughly. There are no guarantees that this will help but it is worth trying a bottle before you try other more expensive products. If you found this review helpful kindly click the YES button.

I like Gaba, It helps me sleep. I am slowing cutting back on prescription meds.
Best product of Now Foods

I ten to wake up at midnight and normally I can't go back to sleep again. However if I chew one Now Food's GABA tablet I fall back to sleep quickly and sleep like a rock for a few hours! The recommended dose for this product is two tablets but I have learned by experience that one tablet works better in terms of sleeping. Now Foods has other GABA products which are good to keep you calm but this one is something else.

Purchased these after researching that it could help lessen ADHD symptoms. They seem to help but are difficult to get my child to take as they don't taste so pleasant. They also have a tendency to quickly absorb moisture so if you live in a humid area be sure to keep the cap on tight. We had problems with them getting moist when I kept them in a supplement holder/pill box that wasn't airtight.
