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-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.

Use GABA For Sleep!!!
Use GABA For Sleep!!!
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.

1/4 tsp is enough to feel it, 3/4 tsp will put me to sleep
Impossible to measure the 1/4 teaspoon

I bought the powder version...what a regret! Impossible to measure 1/4 of a teaspoon without a very precise scale.
Why pay more?

GABA is an effective anxiety reducing neurotransmitter, especially for people like me with an ASS (autistic) condition like PDD-NOS or Asperger, and I need a daily (nightly) dose of 1,5 to 2,5 grams to compensate for an incorrect balance between GABA and glutamate. GABA powder is a cost effective alternative for GABA capsules
