Use GABA For Sleep!!!

Posted by iHerb Customer on July 2 2009 | Verified Purchase

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.

Thanks for your feedback!

Gaba is brilliant! I don't know why there is so many mixed reviews of GABA over the net... Let me tell you it works brilliantly, and like someone mentioned before; it is quite like diazepam but less intense, no tolerance, addiction etc. 5 stars. I also mix this in my drinks no prob.

Thanks for your feedback!

Helps prevent seizures, aids sleep

Excellent product, and fabulous value. Pure GABA with no additives. Gaba has been extremely helpful for me. Dissolved under the tongue at night, 1/4 tspn helps me sleep and has been incredibly effective to prevent partial seizures. GABA has made a tremendous difference to my quality of life.

Thanks for your feedback!

great product and value.

Gaba is great for anxiety and pain, and helps me with my insomnia. Buying it in the powder form is a great value for the money. I can hardly tatste the gaba at all when i drink it.

Thanks for your feedback!

Do not purchase for anxiety relief

Posted by iHerb Customer on December 14 2008 | Verified Purchase

GABA does not cross the blood-brain barrier. Supplementing with l-glutamine provides the brain with the raw materials it needs to synthesize GABA and glutamate. GABA in this form depresses the respiratory system and mildly relaxes muscles, which may make it a "shotgun" treatment for people experiencing sympathetic overarousal like high blood pressure, muscle tension, and a rapid heartbeat. Dont expect this to act like a perscription muscle relaxant; it's only really effective for treating neuro-muscular seizures. If taken in large, multi-gram amounts I can guarantee you that you will fear for your safety. It will suppress your ability to breath and remind you of those stories regarding opiate overdoses.

It works, I definately feel less stress when I take it. However, for some reason it makes me itch/burn ALL OVER my body a few minutes after I use it. The feeling is similar to taking niacin except I don't turn red and it only lasts for about 5-10 minutes. Also, the last time I used it I started feeling paranoid, like a bad highschool episode of experimenting with "ahem" grass. My heartbeat was slowed down significantly and my legs were so relaxed I didn't want to move, but I was having the strangest sensation that I was going to die from the GABA powder. That the GABA powder was going to kill me. So I couldn't fall asleep. LOL it was kind of funny but not at the same time. For reference, I only took the recommended dosage so no, I was not ODing lol. Anyway, not for me unless I'm having a bad panic attack because it works very very quickly.

Thanks for your feedback!

At first I dosed my GABA as per a 1/4tsp serving on the bottle, but noticed little difference. Increase the dose to above 4g (2tsp) and it really puts you in the mood for sleep. I hope to receive continued success with this product. Highly recommended if you have sleeping problems.

Thanks for your feedback!

Good relaxative item

GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter and seems to provide comfort to my muscles after a relatively strenuous workout.

Thanks for your feedback!

Good for stroke survivors.

My Mother had a major stroke. Recovery has been long and hard but helped by a nightly dose of GABA, which calms her brain and helps her sleep more peacefully.
