Product Overview

Description

  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic
  • 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.

Good for relaxing

Posted by iHerb Customer on Jun 05, 2017 | Verified Purchase

When I awake in the middle of the night with active mind it helps calm my brain so I fall back to sleep with one or two tablets

Thanks for your feedback!

Genuine quality

Posted by iHerb Customer on Mar 27, 2017 | Verified Purchase

Of several gaba products I have consumed, Thorne has the best pharma quality & calms my over active brain activity the best. If you have an over active mind or have trouble winding down at the end of the day, this could help immensely.

Thanks for your feedback!

Helps me sleep

Posted by OldWoman on Oct 11, 2015 | Verified Purchase

Due to my illness I have a lot of trouble sleeping. I was told to take two of these each morning to help with stress and anxiety and 2 each evening. I have actually been sleeping at night again and it's not habit forming. I will continue taking this each day.

Thanks for your feedback!

Helpful for relaxation and sleep

Posted by KentuckyWildcat on Sep 10, 2012 | Verified Purchase

Dr. Michael Murray ND states that clinical studies have shown PharmaGABA to produce significant relaxation and anti-stress effects, including changes in brain-wave patterns, pupil diameter, heart rate and salivary cortisol levels. The effects of PharmaGABA feel different to me than with regular GABA. The PharmaGABA seems to affect a broader area of the brain and for a longer period of time, as opposed to regular GABA which seems limited in its effects and its duration. I take one capsule at bed to help with sleep.
