Relaxation & Mental Focus. Pharma GABA® is a superior source and naturally produced form of the important brain compound Gamma-amino Butyric Acid (GABA). Clinical studies have shown Pharma GABA® helps increase the production of alpha brain waves to create a profound sense of physical relaxation while maintaining mental focus.
"We aren't using this one a lot - just to see if we have healed at certain times (blood/brain barrier), so no reaction is great. I recommend this one since it is free of all the stuff that makes us react negatively. :) So we haven't tried it long enough for anyone's efficacy, but good product."
"This is an amino acid, and while this really worked for me and also my daughter, my sister did not notice any difference. That's b/c not everyone requires the same amino acid to achieve results. For me, this was for general anxiety from worrying about work-related finances. For my daughter, it was stress from school and finances. It's a subtle difference. I have never taken anti-anxiety pills, nor will so I can't really compare. I just know that at the end of a day I would notice that I hadn't let things bother me and I was calm and relaxed throughout the day."
"I'd been using 5HTP for years as a sleep aid while going through menopause (in addition to Menosense). These days, this GABA works better for me than the 5HTP. Do some reading about the difference between GABA and PharmaGABA. This GABA is made with a fermentation process rather than being synthetic. Also, the research using PharmaGABA is interesting and convincing. It is more about lowering stress and cortisol than it is about sleep, so this product can be used during the day for calming and focus, without causing drowsiness."
"Works very well. My husband takes 2 capsules to induce sleep. It works within 30 minutes. These are much more effective than Natural Factors GABA Chewables. GABA cheweables' effectiveness isn't long lasting and you develop tolerance for them quickly."
