Product Overview

GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) is a non-essential amino acid found mainly in the human brain and eyes. It is considered an inhibitory neurotransmitter, which means it regulates brain and nerve cell activity by inhibiting the number of neurons firing in the brain. GABA is referred to as the "brain´s natural calming agent". By inhibiting over-stimulation of the brain, GABA may help promote relaxation and ease nervous tension.* NOW provides only the naturally occurring L-form as found in food and in the body.

As with any supplement, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. This product worked very well to help me get a good night's sleep. I mix 3/4 teaspoon with some grape juice before going to bed. As for increasing GH, I suggest you get blood work done before and after using. I can only attest that it helps me sleep deeply.

I love taking GABA, especially when i'm lower carb/dieting and have trouble falling asleep. It is basically an inhibitor for the neurons that "excite" us which then in turns, gives us a relaxing and calm feeling. Be careful with over dosing this though because it can make you feel a little too relaxed. Start with 1-2g and assess from there.

I can't comment on GH release but it's a great sleep aid. I take a gram before bed and have no issues sleeping even when my mind was racing prior to taking it.

Doesn't taste like anything. Not sure if this helps me sleep better or not, not sure. Been using it for a couple of weeks and can't really tell. Makes my skin tingle though.

Pretty Cost effective, It does do the job. It’s not really a supplement that enhances performance in the gym. But it does enhance your sleep to a deep sleeping pattern, although the recommended dosage is very weak, the best results i would take 3-5g of it on a empty stomach before bed. Although I found that i had to be consistent with this product and take it daily for it to work. I started noticing good sleep gains with in a week of taking. This is evident because of the dreams I had at night which put me in good deep sleep,

GABA is an excellent choice if you want spending less time in sleeping but in the same time having "Quality Time" sleep. After I toke GABA (Another Brand), my sleeping time has been reduced by 3 hours and I feel refreshed most of the times in the morning. NOW GABA does the same with cheaper price but without scoop (no worries, just use another product's scoop). I gave it 8 because, well, it's all false marketing ads regarding increases in natural production of HGH because there is not major research which relate GABA with high levels of HGH production. Sorry!

Here is the low-down on GABA for those who are interested. Firstly this is one of the top brands for pure GABA from Vegan sources, always a +. Next.. GABA actions: Promotes deeper, yet not so much more restful sleep. Taken in mega doses causes a niacin feeling (Irritating tingling accompanied by a hot flash that lasts for about 15-20 min.) *Note that consistently taking mega doses of NOW GABA Pure Powder raises the bodies tolerance meaning that you can take mega doses without the flush and tingling after the first couple of mega doses. Next, it does enhance your focus. On a scale from 1...5....10 it raises your focus to about a 4, However you get relaxed and sleepy so it's not really of benefit for study. It does have a very slight calming effect. Finally HGH. NOW GABA Pure Powder does not increase HGH! I'm always looking for a natural HGH potentiating compound and this is not one. Just because you sleep longer after taking it doesn't equate higher levels of HGH in the blood stream. If that were so Melatonin would be at the top of the list of HGH promoters. How do I know? I'm tired. It's that simple. When taking a product that raises your Growth Hormone levels you'll wake up with vigor. A product that raises GH will promote more restful and or comfortable sleep (GABA does not) In addition a Pure HGH or a real oral promoter will allow for better function even with less sleep. Basically if you're really busy and you consecutively only got 4 hours of sleep every day for one week, you'd still wake up alert and able; not really feeling tired maybe a little, but nothing compared to what you'd feel without higher GH levels in your blood. So for all of you who were wondering that's the deal. And before you ask about those inconclusive studies,..)*Note that there are things in those studies that are not told to reviewers unassociated with the trial such as.. Method of administration, type of compound, compound administration partners for efficacy, amongst other things. GOOD LUCK!

using the 750mg/100 Vcaps, taking 3 within 30 mins of sleeping. while this is barely over the minimum effective dosage i'm noticing that i fall asleep easier (it doesn't make me drowsy but i have no issues keeping my eyes shut when i choose to close them) and wake up with more energy. you will notice an increase in dreams. the size of the pills is slightly difficult to swallow

This product is good to help you relax. However, when taking a teaspoon or more of this product you may notice that you get an intense flushing effect all over your body. This can last between 30 to 60 minutes after taking it. It is somewhat unpleasant as your whole body is tingling. Another thing that I noticed while taking this product is that your waist will increase in size.
