Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.
