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.

Contains no sugar, salt, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, milk, egg, shellfish or preservatives.

Sleep Aid; Taken for Years I've been taking this product, along with 5HTP, at night as a sleep aid for over two years and found I slept better, longer and more soundly, with no side effects. September 9, 2013
Good quality GABA has a relaxing effect. I take it to help me sleep. NOW is a high quality product and Swanson always has the best prices! July 13, 2013
should prove helpful I have been taking as directed. I await good results. June 27, 2013
relaxing GABA really helps me to feel calm. My job is sometimes stressful, but since taking GABA I am able to be way more patient with people than I used to be. June 26, 2013
calming effect Wonderful calming effect. I take it before bedtime most of the time! February 3, 2013
A GENTLE SOFT BREEZE The Amino Acid GABA (Gamma AminoButyric Acid) is a long time favorite of mine. Very gentle, effective, and with no negatives. GABA works great when one is extremely stressed out, or when just needing quality sleep time. Swanson's prices, as usual, make this outstanding, hightest quality product easily affordable. . . . Especially compared to pharmaceutical products for the same purposes, - - - and they carry a lot of negative side effect baggage along with them. When one wakes up in the morning after taking a few GABA capsules the night before, there is absolutely no hang-over or drugged feeling. GABA in the middle of the day will not put you to sleep, but it sure does knock the edge off. I recommend GABA to everyone, because we all need it at one time or another. And when you buy it, be absolutely sure to buy it from Swanson so you don't get ripped off. June 28, 2012
Too much of a good thing My friend introduced me to the benefits of GABA, but only at the 125 mg level. Sawnson was out of that dose, so I ordered this one hoping to use half if necessary. The pills are not able to be broken up and the dose didn't seem to give me much benefit. April 9, 2012
GABA +B-6 ( NOW brand) I ordered this product because it includes B-6 that is required to use any amino acid. I open the capsules and dump it under tongue for complete absorption. Better than traditional sub-lingual tablet with other competing aminos and added sugar. March 28, 2012
Good product! I swear by this product! It helps put me in a deep sleep! February 24, 2012
Won't regret this one I have been very pleased with my experience with GABA + B6. I have in fact shared my love of the product with everyone I know. Give this one a try, you will be shocked by the results. May 12, 2011
Nighty-Night! Tried many things to help me sleep through the night, some good and some not so good. GABA worked the first night and every night since. Puts me out in about 10 minutes and I sleep ALL night. October 5, 2010
Been using GABA for years, seems to help with mood; used to use Swanson's own,now trying NOW. To soon to tell if any better. June 11, 2010
Outstanding Results I received this product four days ago and it has been unbelievably effective for my stress and sleep quality. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is seeking these types of benefits. This product has far exceeded my expectations and Swanson sells this product at a price lower than the manufacturers website with a cheaper shipping charge!! April 8, 2010
Great Relaxer I've been using GABA for some time now and find it very helpful for relaxing my body. July 30, 2009
about gaba Gaba is the best thing to come along , my wife has been taking it for the last 5 years. Five years her father died , she was inconsoleable but the gaba helped her from being so emotional. Thank God for it , because 1 year ago her mother died also and the Gaba was there for her. July 29, 2009
