Stressed out by the pressures of a fast-paced lifestyle? Reach for the calming nutrition of Swanson GABA. A compound manufactured in the brain from glucose and the amino acid glutamine, GABA (gamma-amino butyric acid) supports the central nervous system's reaction to stressful situations.* Check out the GABA reviews listed below to see what other customers thought of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gentle Relief at a Great Price GABA from Swanson is a real bargain and obviously a high quality pure amino acid. I have used GABA for years and have done research with GABA and other amino acids that have a calming effect. Most GABA products are much more expensive and are often not pure GABA. There is a very real difference in the effictiveness and speed of action with different brands. I have not found a better GABA product at any price. I trust and use Swanson's GABA to take the edge off a hectic day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gaba's Great! I have been using GABA for a couple years. I have gotten some of my "uptight" children to use it, as well. Every one of us is sleeping and relaxing much better with it. This GABA product is fine quality, as are all the products I have used from Swanson. I like knowing they are actually interested in what they sell to the extent they do some research with their products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Notice a difference I bought this product for my college student. With all the stress they are under I figured why not try and see if it would help. I have noticed a difference in them and it seems to be working. The only way to know if something is going to work is give it a try and see.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have been using GABA (1x/day) for four months. It has been incredibly helpful as a calming agent, and I am so grateful to have a natural product that offers this benefit. It is such a great price too, and the capsules are small. If I could only buy one product from Swanson, this would be it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly calming I was surprised at the calming effect of this product. At first I didn't realize it would make me tired. I took it during the day and wondered why I was so drowsy. So I realized it's for night time and now it really helps me sleep much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calm mood I've been taking GABA for at least two years and since starting it have had a noticeable sense of greater calm and mental clarity. My wife takes it as well before going to bed every night. She has a more peaceful nights sleep these days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GABA 500 mg Since I added these to my diet, taking one every evening, I have been able to deal with stressful situations better than in the past. These are odorless, tasteless and easy to swallow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Final piece of my mood puzzle The only reason I don't say excellant yet is that it is too soon to tell if the effects will be long lasting but after slowly increasing the dose over a few weeks I'm now sleeping more regularly than I have in months if not years. I also haven't found any info on max doses yet.
