  • PharmaGABA-100 by Thorne Research is a naturally sourced gamma-aminobutyric acid that its non-habit forming and non-drowsy. In this supplement‚ Thorne has brought you the only natural-source GABA so as to promote a calm‚ relaxed and focused state of mind.

    What is GABA?

    GABA (also known as gama-aminobutryic acid) is an amino acid‚ but unlike other amino acids‚ it does not help the body build proteins. GABA’s role is to help nerve impulses communicate‚ so basically‚ GABA helps transmit nerve signals.

    GABA is one of the major neurotransmitters that is widely distributed throughout the nervous system. The role of GABA is to balance the irritability‚ sleeplessness‚ spasmodic movements and restlessness that come along with the stresses and excitement of everyday life. GABA works by acting as an inhibitory neurotransmitter‚ acting like a break in times when stress seems to be running away and getting the better of us. GABAs relaxing properties are also helpful for promoting relaxation and enhancing sleep.

    Because it is essential to have an adequate balance‚ many believe that low GABA levels and decreased GABA function can have an adverse impact on your overall neurological health.

    How Can GABA Supplementation Help?

    Since GABA is such a great supporter of the nervous system and natural hormone production‚ it is helpful in supporting relaxation‚ a more restful sleep‚ and stable mood. Having more energy may make you more likely to exercise. It also acts by supporting the production of hormones that can help the body build lean muscle mass.

    Where Does Thorne Research Get its GABA?

    Thorne Research only uses the natural form of GABA for its PharmaGABA-100. This form is made as a result of a fermentation produces that uses Lactobacillus hilgardii (the same bacteria used to ferment many vegetables‚ including the popular Korean cabbage dish known as kimchi).

    Benefits of GABA Supplementation

    This natural source of GABA may increase the brain’s ability to produce alpha waves‚ which can create a profound sense of physical relaxation while maintaining mental focus and acuity. Although it increases alpha waves‚ it decreases the stress-related beta waves‚ which cause the body’s natural response to stress. As you can imagine‚ if your brain is producing excessive beta waves but not enough alpha waves‚ you will not be as well equipped to handle stressful situations.

    However‚ taking a GABA supplement can do much more. In studies‚ natural PharmaGABA has been shown to produce relaxation as shown by several indicators. Although these effects are enticing‚ they may be less present synthetic version of GABA. The most positive effects from GABA supplementation may occur while taking the natural form of GABA‚ such as that found in Thorne Research’s PharmaGABA. Each bottle contains 60 vegetarian capsules.

    Thorne Research strives to provide pure‚ high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies‚ and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised‚ allergic‚ and chemically sensitive patients.

    Glad I found this form of GABA

    I ran out of Thorne PharmaGABA so ended up purchasing regular (synthetic) GABA as an experiment. After I took the first one I felt a weird tingling sensation all over and had not experienced that with PharmaGABA so I did some research a month or so ago. Supposedly synthetic GABA is banned in Japan because of the chemical N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidinone (approx. 1% in GABA). However when searching the internet today I no longer found reference to the ban of GABA in Japan. Curious.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Gaba defiantly takes the edge off those very stressful times. Gaba has been recommended by my chiropractor naturopath and the "Mood Cure." Thorne is a trusted brand and great quality.

    Cons

    not sure yet...

    I have ADD and my ND thought I should try this. So far I am not noticing much of a differerence with my focus or lack thereof. I spoke with my ND to day and she said it takes awhile to start working. Its hard to get it since you have to take it between meals- I tend to forget those. I do feel a little sharper so I ll do another review down the road...

    Pros

      I feel a little more focused

    Cons

      Have to take without food

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    PharmaGABA

    Pharma GABA is an amazing product. I have tried the regular chemically produced GABA and had mixed results as to whether it had any effect on me. Pharma GABA is amazingly fast particularly if I break open the capsule into my mouth and hold it till it is dissolved. Within 20 minutes I feel the effects. I wont be without it and give it to a grandson who comes home from school unpleasant. My daughter says that it lifts his spirits within half an hour.

    Pros

      It works rapidly!!!

    Cons

      nothing

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
