Rated 2 out of 5 by stress took a couple of times, but got a headache and had a hard time getting up in the morning. Didn't like the way it made me feel May 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy pill I take this with an l theanine supplement. Helps me keep my mood calm & upbeat. April 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helpful! I have taken this product to help sleep. I also take several other products for that purpose, so can`t really judge accurately but I continue to use it and seems to help April 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Great product, great value! Highly recommend. April 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price. Take this before bedtime to relax. Seems to help. I would recomend this product. Great price at Swanson. April 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great My daughter recommended this product to me. Since I've been using it I can definitely tell that I'm calmer and less stressed. I'm very happy about this product. April 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by calming relaxing Bought for my son's use and the effectiveness is obvious. March 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 24, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. March 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! This seems to be more effective than other brands I have used in the past. I am always impressed with Swanson's quality and effectiveness. March 20, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by great buy i combine with l-tyorsine, and DOPA mucuna and i have noticed great mood boosting effects and it has been alot harder for me to get stressed out by simple things. March 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I've never slept better! Since taking GABA in the afternoon, on an empty stomach, I've never had a better nights sleep. March 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lean muscle I am in my late 40's and have been taking this product for years to maintain and build muscle, it also helps to relax me. As always, you can't beat Swanson's price! February 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product... I would recommend this to a friend or family member. Great Product... December 3, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pleased with product Every now & then I'm a liitle too hyped or excited to sleep. When that happens I take this and find it very effective. September 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It works-I'm happier! I started taking this about 1.5 months ago, combined with L-Tyrosine. I had read that they were helpful for people who often felt agitated, irritable, impatient and just stressed. I take this in the morning and the L-Tyrosine at night and boy does it work! I notice I have a lot more patience for things that used to annoy me quickly. I notice I'm not nearly as snippy or impatient, and not so quick to snap or make hasty conclusions. It feels good to not be so tightly wound. My husband and kids appreciate it too (or so I've heard...). If you're tired of feeling crabby give this a try, and maybe L-Tyrosine as well. I feel like a normal and happy person! September 9, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Calms very well! I get stressed out easily, but since taking GABA I have noticed that I am calmer. I can't do without it now; taking it daily has really helped me! August 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by CALMS ME DOWN I take this at night with melatonin and have noticed I'm waaaay calmer - not flipping out as much and more able to deal with the stresses of life. (Thank God!!!) Highly recommended. Better than a highball. May 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Will Recommend GABA to everyone I know. GABA is the best for my family May 22, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's good for other things too! I use it for other things than its calmative effects, and it works quite well. Read a good supplements book to see the other uses of GABA. April 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Essential to me Well apparently I can't specify anything medically, but let's just sayd GABA is a lifesaver for me, absolutely. It calms my mind so I can function and sleep. Will not go without it and Swanson has the best price. March 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Calming Wonder! I starting sneaking this in on my hubby with the other herbs he is taking. What a difference! He is so much calmer and more easy going. The children even noticed even though I told no one he had been taking it. I did tell my husband and he is happy for me to keep giving this to him! Thanks for such a great product! November 15, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good stuff Seam to sleep very well after I take this product November 2, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Relax I take this at bedtime. It helps me wind down and leave the problems of the day behind. I get a great sleep each night when I take GABA. October 23, 2010
