Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it! I've noticed a difference in how my mind and body react in stressful situations. Somehow it really helps me to wake up in the morning and fall asleep at night as well. I will continue to use it! September 4, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by Another Great SWANSON's Product I take GABA for my own personal reasons, and have for many years! In addition, I can tell you specifically that I have been a loyal customer of SWANSON's since 1999, they rank 99.99% in my book for quality and service, and I would recommend SWANSON's to all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by very effective very effective product, I'm using it daily as instructed. November 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value! 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. August 3, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not good 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. July 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GABA GABA is an awesome neutraceutical. May 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Calming Amino Take it before bedtime. You will be pleased. May 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. March 17, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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 March 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. January 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by good supplement Seems to work pretty well, I usually only take 1/2 a capsule and relaxes me within 30 mins January 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product This is a very good product it really works December 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Quiets my mind so I can get back to sleep. November 27, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. September 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. July 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by gently relaxes 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. June 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! June 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Useful product. Good value. Price is right. Have been using this product for several months and would recommend it. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! May 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by NIGHTY NIGHT 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. May 12, 2013
