  • Contains natural-source GABA‚ a brain chemical to promote a calm state of mind and restful sleep

    PharmaGABA features a natural source of the inhibitory neurotransmitter – GABA. GABA supports restful sleep‚ acts like a "brake" on stress‚ and provides a focused state of mind.


    Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a major calming brain chemical or neurotransmitter. Clinical studies show that the natural form of GABA that is in Thorne's PharmaGABA can decrease the brain's stress-related beta waves and increase the production of its alpha-waves‚ creating a profound sense of physical relaxation while maintaining mental focus. Other studies have shown reduced pupil diameter‚ heart rate‚ and two natural biomarkers of stress – salivary cortisol and chromogranin A – all signs of relaxation. In addition‚ studies also indicate GABA can enhance sleep. In a head-to-head‚ double-blind trial of natural PharmaGABA versus synthetic GABA‚ the synthetic GABA did not demonstrate these positive effects. PharmaGABA-250 offers 250 mg of natural GABA per capsule‚ while PharmaGABA-100 offers 100 mg per capsule. Both are non-habit forming.

    In a recent study of the effect of nutrient supplementation on muscle mass‚ 21 males‚ average age 39‚ who did not exercise regularly‚ were given 10 grams of whey protein or 10 grams of whey protein plus 100 mg of PharmaGABA daily for 12 weeks. Both groups participated in twice weekly 60-minute strength training sessions that consisted of leg presses‚ leg extensions‚ leg curls‚ chest presses‚ and pull-downs. Total body lean muscle mass increased significantly in the whey protein-plus-PharmaGABA group compared to the whey-only group.

    The natural GABA in Thorne's PharmaGABA suite is produced via a fermentation process that utilizes Lactobacillus hilgardii‚ the same bacteria that is used to ferment cabbage in the preparation of the traditional Korean dish known as kimchi.

    High quality gaba

    I was told not all gaba are created equal, so I was specific about the brand of gaba I give to my son. Thorne Research's PharmaGABA-100 has been one of the best gaba. I've been very happy with the results.


    Pros

      High quality

    Cons

      Nothing.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Interested.

    Upon arrival of PharmaGABA by Thorne Research I was curious to try it, expecting to feel no different from before and to be disappointed. Much to my surprise, upon taking one capsule I had immediately felt buzzed. It was almost like I had taken a pain killer or something of the sort. For about 45 minutes I was in a mild yet very relaxed and hazy state which then dissipated leaving me completely normal. and through many trials including some of which I exceeded the normal dose by two to three capsules I have not been able to achieve this reaction or any reaction for that matter whatsoever. it's as if I built a complete tolerance after the first pill. I have yet to experience any difference upon taking them to this day.


    Pros

      It certainly calmed me down.

    Cons

      Although calm, I felt out of focus and forgetful. it worked once and only once.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    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.

    Great Quality Gaba

    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.


    Pros

      Effective 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.
