Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works This is a great supplement for stress. I use it here and there for moderate to severe stress, as 500 mg dose will make you tired if you aren't experiencing high levels of stress. It works like a charm before bedtime to quiet the body and mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly works. This supplement absolutely stops my mind from rehashing irritating events over and over-allowing me to get on with life and forgetting about unimportant things that constantly nag at you. I really does stop the 'mind chatter.' Thank you for a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever We all find ourselves at times, tensed up, or stressed. Probably the most important thing is to recognize this in ourselves, so we can do something about it..... That being said, what I do is take 1, 2, or 3 GABA tabs, which help me to melt away the stress/tension. Try it....I just ordered 10 bottles and when I'm down to two....will order again. Mary Jean and I both find this supplement very helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from relaxes very well Often when I am stressed and I try to fall asleep, my thoughts travel 100m/h in four different directions at a time, and I cannot sleep. When it happened again I took a pill of Gaba, and the next thing I knew - I woke up when my alarm got off. Worked for me very well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I stay asleep I can fall asleep at the drop of a hat but after 2 or so hours I am awake and tossing and turning. Since taking GABA I stay asleep at night and wake up rested! I recommend to anyone who has sleep issues. I take it right before I go to bed . :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GABA I have been using this supplement for a while now and although I had my doubts at first I believe it has made a difference. This is a good product and the price is better through Swanson, with shipping, than it is at the local health food store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very relaxing This is great to take at night, when you need to get a good night's sleep. I didn't realize how well it was working until I ran out!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Seems to keep me up... I tried this for over a week. I feel that the product is effective, however for me it "gave me a busy brain" at night when trying to sleep. So taking this product to help me sleep was not effective. Not all item work for everyone. I was hoping that it would based on previous reviews of this product. This product makes me feel sleepy and I go to sleep but the quality of my sleep is effected somehow by this product. Not a deep sleep more of a hovering sleep and I wake up weary in the morning, not hung over from it but tired from not sleeping well.
