Comments about GNC GNC GABA 750:

I take Gaba to fight an inherited Essential Tremors condition. I'm trying to go the supplement path before moving to prescription meds. I discovered Gaba after I realized that drinking a beer the night before would lessen the tremors. I then discovered the ingredient in beer that was combatting this was Gaba.

In the beginning, I started taking one capsule per day. This worked for about a year. I learned early on it was essential to not skip days. Unfortunately, over time my body started creating a tolerance to Gaba such that now I'm at 4500mg per day in two doses to keep the tremors at bay.

I've noticed that once you get beyond ~3000mg in a single dose, you have to deal with the side-effects of itchy sensation on the face and around the neck 30 mins after ingestion coupled with increased rate of breathing for 60-120 seconds. To mitigate these affects, I take a dose at night, and then one in the morning.

All in all, I'm a fan. Gaba does not remove all the tremors, but it helps enough that people no longer thing I have Parkinsons.

Comments about GNC GNC GABA 750:

I take 2 capsules 30 minutes before bedtime. It helps me get into deep sleep without any problems. I will add that I have always had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep, GABA helps! Also - I recently ran out and thought I would try going with out - big mistake - I haven't slept well all week and will be heading to GNC to resupply my vitamin cabinet!

Not for problems thinking clearly

Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about GNC GNC GABA 750:

*** Before reading this, understand that I have an unusually high sensitivity to most OTC sleep medications, which may be relevant to what I experienced. Other individuals may have different results. ***

I went to a GNC store to buy Phosphatidyl Serine, as I have found it invaluable helping me think clearly and stay focused during the day. The guy in the store recommended GABA to be taken together with the PS, and also as an aid to help me sleep. Big mistake on both counts. Shortly after taking the first capsule my brain was mush and I could barely complete a full sentence. Thinking this may be just the ticket for a good night's sleep, I took one at bedtime. At some time during the night I woke, same symptoms as usual with the busy mind, and had a lot of trouble going back to sleep. The following day was a waste, feeling similar to the hangover from taking some OTC sleep medications.

Others' results may vary, as I said. But I'll be taking advantage of GNC's return policy on this one.
