Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is related to amino acids and is an important inhibitory neurotransmitter. As an inhibitory transmitter, it tends to calm the brain from excitatory neurotransmitters. The brain makes GABA from glutamic acid (an amino acid). There are foods you can eat that will supply you with plenty of glutamic acid that include, almonds, whole wheat, mackerel, halibut, oats, beef liver, walnuts, rice bran, lentils, brown rice, potato, broccoli, spinach, bananas and oranges. If you don’t get enough glutamic acid to make GABA with, you can supplement with Source Naturals GABA. The inhibition of excitatory inputs to the brain creates a calming sensation and allows you to relax and fall asleep.

An individual had been taking valium and was looking for a natural supplement to deal with her panic problems tried this product and it worked at the beginning but became less effective as time went by.
Another consumer took 2 GABA capsules one hour before bedtime and said he went right to sleep. However, he believed this dose was too strong as he overslept and had a hard time waking up. Now he takes one capsule, falls asleep quickly, sleeps soundly and wakes up easily.
