I use GABA to balance my mood. It works very well for me on high stress days. I don't feel anxious or stressed. The price is cheap and this product has the high quality of Swanson's. I will be ordering more GABA in a smaller dosage.

I tried this product for the first time. I did not like the way it made me feel. I don't think I want to use it any more.

better than coffee
1 tablet and I've given up coffee. I was drinking 5 plus cups a day. Now with 1 tablet I get a lift that lasts the entire day and does not affect my sleep. There is no let down as with coffee. Mental and physical energy are definitely better. Tired of coffee, then try GABA.

Swanson's Premium GABA
I take this to help ease stress and calm my mind. It does seem to work a 'little', not a lot, but enough that it does help. Might not work for everybody, but I will continue to take it.

Kept Me WIDE AWAKE
I liked the idea that this product would help me sleep. I was awake all night and GABA was the only change in my routine. I ended up getting shingles from being run down and dealing the extra stress of being exhausted.
NOT FOR ME

GABA helps me sleep
I have difficulty sleeping and staying asleep. Melatonin helps, but I added GABA and it definitely works with melatonin to provide me with a restful sleep.

Seems to work pretty well, I usually only take 1/2 a capsule and relaxes me within 30 mins

Hard to say
I don't know if the other reviews are a Placebo effect but I truly am uncertain if any benefit was derived from taking this at bedtime.

Very pleasantly surprised!
I originally bought this for my wife who is 38 and a nurse. She has always had trouble falling asleep and seldom would sleep soundly throughout the night without waking up several times during the night. I bought this along with 5HTP in the hopes that one or both might help her. From the first dose 20 minutes before bed she was KNOCKED OUT! Not only that, but she remained asleep all night long without waking up! Needless to say, I have a much more well rested wife and am very thankful. Not sure which did it (or the combo) but one of each sure did the trick for us.

One at night helps the day go away and me drift off even if my bed buddy is awake till 2am with the bigscreen on in the room.

Swanson Premium GABA
This is a good product with a good price. I take one in the morning and one in the evening on an empty stomach. I've definitely noticed that I sleep better. Thank you, Swanson!

I love GABA!
This stuff is wonderful for helping me sleep. I usually take 5-htp - but I added GABA and I sleep very deeply every night. I highly recommend it!

I love Gamma AminoButyric Acid - - - GABA. I go hard all day, beginning about 5 a.m., and I need a really good, quality night's sleep for my body and brain to fully and effectively regenerate. Sure, I'm tired when I hit the sack at night, usually anywhere from 10 to midnight, and I have stress under control, so it isn't that I cannot sleep. However, GABA is therapeutic for me, allowing me to fall asleep right away, and wake up raring to go, fully alert and feeling great all on my own around 5 a.m.. My alarm on my cell phone is set to go off a 6:30, and I get a chuckle out of that while I'm busy doing something productive at that time. It is a fail safe for me, but never needed.
GABA not only relaxes, but I have read that it helps build muscle tissue while I'm sleeping. Who wouldn't want and appreciate that? Personally, I take 4 of these 500 mg. capsules at bedtime. During my lifetime, I have found that 2 gram doses of pure, crystalline, free-form Amino Acids work best for me in most instances.

Yay for sleep
I love GABA!! I get natural sleep with the help of GABA, without any side effects. I have used GABA for years and it still works wonderfully. Non habit forming

stuff actually works
It helps with sleep, helps you get to sleep.
No side effects so far- been taking for about 2 months.
Worth a try if you've had problems getting to sleep.

This product has helped stabilizing my moods. I take GABA at night with John's St Wort daily. Much better.

Neveres on end?
This product is wonderful and it helps very much with having a chaotic mind and can be calming when emotional.
From my perosnal use of this products it takes awhile to find the right dosage. If it does not work, don't give up right away. It worked for me a few times and then I had to wait a year before it worked again. Here are some tips to get gaba to work for you.
Give it at least 30 minutes to kick in
Opening the capsule works faster

Satisfied Older University Student
I am a 'older' university student whose mind is fine. However, I decided to try to 'mental health' supplements. Read other reviews on each and decided which ones I thought would work best for my needs. This really helps my mental alertness and my moods when tired from the heave load of study and normal 'adult' responsibilities.
