Your brain and spinal cord are full of nerve cells. With the help of chemicals called neurotransmitters‚ these nerve cells are able to send messages to each other and control the rest of your body. Gamma Aminobutyric Acid (GABA) is one of the many chemicals that affect communication between your nerve cells. It’s made from a substance called glutamate‚ which encourages nerve cells to send messages to each other. However‚ when it turns into GABA‚ it prevents messages from being sent between your nerve cells when they don’t need to be; this can have a calming effect. In the absence of GABA‚ your nerve cells may not know when to stop communicating with each other‚ potentially causing stress.

Symptoms of a GABA include a bad mood‚ anxiety‚ and headaches. There are natural supplements that have the potential to make you feel better without major side effects. PharmaGABA Chewables by Designs for Health provides you with a safe way to increase your GABA levels. In addition to calming your mood‚ this supplement might be useful for controlling food cravings‚ improving your immune function at times when you’re feeling stressed‚ helping you sleep‚ and improving your capacity for concentration at work or school.

These supplements are suitable for use whether your low GABA levels have been inherited from your family‚ or if they’re due to a less-than-ideal diet. Gamma Aminobutyric Acid—in the specialized form of PharmaGABA™—is the only active ingredient in this product. Each chewable tablet provides 200 mg of this helpful chemical.

One bottle of Designs for Health’s PharmaGABA Chewables contains 60 tablets‚ which should last for about one month at the standard dosage. Take two tablets a day‚ unless otherwise directed by your doctor.

Designs for Health was founded in 1989 by a team of clinical nutritionists‚ and puts science first when creating products and formulas. Ever since then‚ the company has focused on manufacturing dietary supplements that contain quality‚ natural ingredients at effective dosages. It strives to provide the best products for health care professionals and patients.

      Helps me sleep

      from Boston on 9/30/2022
      Great chewable supplement. I rely on this to help me fall asleep. I am not sure that is the intended use but I find it calms me down. It also helps with urges to overeat. This is how I ended up taking it. Years ago I was working with a nutritionist. She suggested I take Pharma GABA and it would help reduce my cravings. It works! BTW, Designs for health is a great company. Thanks Pure, for introducing me to it.

      Great product!

      from Memphis TN on 4/22/2018
      PharmaGABA Chewables by Designs for Health works well for my son's anxiety. He is 10 and he likes the taste and can chew them easily. PharmaGaba was recommended by our Holistic Doctor to help with panic attacks. It definitely seems to improve my son's mood and lessen the frequencies of anxiety episodes. I highly recommend.


      Chewable, nice flavor for kids.


      Kind of expensive.

      New formula, stable, and no oxidation.

      from Houston-NASA and Galveston area,TX on 3/17/2016
      Now it is a new formula and more stable .. only I don't like the taste... but at least the tablets don't oxidixe and change in texture and to a "really bad taste" like the previous formula.... a different chewable that I like has F-Melt with dextrose and sucrose taste much better than the DFH Pharme GABA that has this... F-Melt with: Xylitol? F-Melt? Vegetable Stearates? Microcrytalline Cellulose? Citric Acid? Natural Flavors? Stevia (leaf) Extract? Pharmaceutical Glaze by the way, most CELLOUSE is wood fiber. oh, well not gonna change brands, just add THORNE Capsules 250 MG and 60 caps in bottle... just maintenance and work slower.. they also have cellouse Be Happy.. take Pharma GABA by Designis for Health.


      One of the best quality Pharma GABA's in general, DFH, Thorne and Physiologics are excellent brands... the other brand I like is NOW (orange label)


      new taste,,, only the previous oxidized and the taste did get really bad over time.

    • revision from 05-10-2012 still a good p

      from Clear Lake (NASA - Galveston), TX on 8/06/2013
      I have taken PharmaGABA for over a year with both Lexapro and Lamictal. I have 2 tablets when I wake up sometimes 3 when PharmaGABA starts aging. Then an extra one or two later in the day....when the tablets are getting older youll know I sometimes will take 5 or 6....especially at husbands request. PharmaGABA can get expensive quickly. I will try the other chewable from Natural Factors and its cheaper.


      YES this works very quickly.


      This brand oxidizes too quick;y needs a stabilizer. Just make a face say "uummmm good" and chew. Hence I refer to the older tablets as "doggie treats"

    • Wonderful!

      from Clear Lake (NASA - Galveston), Texas on 5/10/2012
      I am taking PharmaGABA Chewables by Designs for Health 3-4 times a day as I also take Lexapro. Some mornings I take 2 at breakfast; my husband will tell me to go take one; I gave 2 to a friend and she loves the calming effect and knowing her family visit would drive her nuts and she insisted I sell her half of mine!


      Friends and family will ask me to take one.

  • Question:
    What is the difference between Pharmagaba and Gaba?
    WENDY on 2/13/2018 Answer:
    • Hi Wendy, the differences are vast. PharmaGABA is produced naturally with proven safety and efficacy. Synthetic GABA is produced from various toxic chemicals including succinimide, piperylurethan and fuming nitric acid, N-(-bromoethyl) phthalimide and sodiomalonic ester, and y-chlorobutyronitrile and potassium phthalimide.
