GABA (gamma amiobutyric 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.

      Comments about NOW NUTRITION Now® GABA:

      After doing some research, I got this for my husband to take to help with stress and anxiety. GABA is said to be a neurotransmitter and work with brain function. This GABA with the B-6 added is great for daytime because it helps keep energy up. He takes the 750 mg at bedtime, but found that it (the 750) makes him tired if taken during the day. He takes a couple in the morning, then in the afternoon, then his bedtime 750 mg. We can tell a difference with his stress and anxiety, but it may take a bit before you can see the full benefits. I have also read that it works for epilepsy, but have no experience with that myself. He has seen no side effects. One quick note - you should not take it at bedtime with Valerian, or you may be super sluggish the next day.

        Comments about NOW NUTRITION Now® GABA:

        I used to take 5HTP for anxiety and mild depression. Because of good reviews, I wanted to give GABA a try, but unfortunately it was not what I expected. I do not feel more relaxed, nor less depressed.
        I would like to think that ir just does not work for me, but might work for other people.

          Comments about NOW NUTRITION Now® GABA:

          My mind is noticably calmer when I take GABA. I am ADD and my mind is usually all over the place at the speed of light. I take one capsule twice a day and my mind is much calmer and it is easier to think and make sense of things. I don't get overwhelmed as easy.
