What is GABA?

GABA, or Gamma-aminobutyric acid, as it is formally known, is a type of supplement that has been specially designed to help improve a person’s mental health and well-being. Mental health disorders are now more common than ever before, and they are becoming a huge cause for concern, and rightfully so. Not only is Gaba available as a supplement, it is also naturally synthesized in the human body, and it has been found to play a crucial role in how your nervous system functions. Because of this, Gaba supplements are considered beneficial, not only for a person’s mental health and well-being, but it is also beneficial for anybody looking to increase their lean muscle mass in the process.

How does it work?

Basically, Gaba functions as a neurotransmitter within the human body, and it helps to assist with the function of the nervous system, as previously mentioned. Experts have found that Gaba can actually inhibit the number of signals being sent to and from the human brain, which in turn can produce a relaxing and calming effect on the body. In terms of bodybuilding and athletic performance however, Gaba is especially popular due to the fact that it does appear as if the supplement can substantially increase your growth hormone levels, which in turn helps assist with the growth and repair of muscle tissue. Studies have found that even a relatively small dosage of just 5g, could substantially increase your growth hormone levels in as little as three hours. Not only that, but it can also inhibit and reduce the amount of cortisol, a stress hormone, found in and produced by, the body, following a strenuous workout. Cortisol is a result of stress, and as Gaba helps provide calming and relaxing effects, the calmer you are, the less cortisol you will produce. Cortisol is responsible for anxiety, it causes spots, it slows down the metabolism, it increases appetite and cravings for junk food, and much more besides. For those reasons alone, Gaba supplements are proving very useful.

What are the benefits of Gaba supplements?

Some of the primary benefits of Gaba supplements include:

Improved mental health and well being

As mentioned, one of the primary benefits associated with Gaba supplements, is the fact that they have been found to improve a person’s mental health and well-being, in a relatively short amount of time. It works in synergy with a selection of other nutrients to help improve mental health and well-being, and reduce conditions such as stress, anxiety, and depression.

Increased muscle mass

Another great benefit of Gaba supplements, is that they also help to assist with the growth of lean muscle mass. Gaba supplements help with hormone regulation and have been found to increase natural growth hormone levels in the human body. Growth hormone assists with the growth and repair of muscle tissue, so the more growth hormone you produce, the more muscular you will become.

Better weight management

As Gaba has also been found to reduce stress, and stress hormones such as cortisol, it can assist with weight loss, and weight management as better mental health generally means you are less likely to binge eat or comfort eat. The fact that it reduces cortisol is also beneficial as cortisol can lead to cravings for junk food.

Other benefits include:

  • Better weight management
  • Increases in muscle mass
  • Improved mental focus
  • Improved mental health and well-being
  • Reductions in stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Increased metabolism
  • Increased growth hormone levels
  • Better hormone regulation
  • Improved hormone regulation
  • Improved immunity
  • Better sleeping patterns
  • And more...

How and when should it be consumed?

Gaba can be used for a whole variety of different reasons, so in order to understand how much to consume, first you need to understand why you’re taking it in the first place. For example, for people looking to boost growth hormone levels, 5000mg taken daily is sufficient enough. For conditions such as fibromyalgia or insomnia, dosages can range from 250mg per day, to 1000mg per day.

Health Canada Recommended Dose (capsules): Adults: 1 Capsule(s) 1 - 12 time(s) per day.
Health Canada Recommended Dose (powder): Adults: 1 Scoop(s) 1 - 4 time(s) per day.

Gaba VS 5-HTP

5-HTP is another supplement that is designed to improve mental health and well-being, and although similar to Gaba, the two are still very unique to one another. 5-HTP for example, is considered more effective for mood-related issues, as it is able to cross the blood brain barrier, but even so, it is not considered to be quite as potent or powerful as Gaba, which is why they are often stacked together.

What can it be stacked with?

For people looking to boost mental health and well-being Gaba can be stacked with 5-HTP, St John’s Wort, omega 3 oils, Glucosamine, and a multi-vitamin supplement. The aforementioned stack is perfect for anybody looking to boost their health and fitness, both physically, and mentally in the process.

Package arrived within 3 days of ordering.

Out of several items I purchased my 11lb bag of protein had several puncture holes. Rather small and I assume came from the other items I had ordered being a little to tightly packed beside each other. Other then losing maybe a pound of powder to the inside of the box I changed over the protein to several different containers.

Great products overall just little unimpressed with the loss.

Usually when taking a supplement one cannot tell if it is effective or not because any positive result will be too subtle or only occur not immediately but over a long term and even then not easily perceived. You are acting on faith or hope or taking insurance. With GABA I noticed an immediate difference. Since retiring year ago I would often wake up after 5-6 hours sleep, sometimes less, and couldn't get back to sleep, and so get up and function less than optimally during the day. Now, after taking a couple of capsules just before bedtime I am sleeping straight through for 7-8 hours and wake up completely refreshed. As for any other benefits, I cannot say.

Awesome stuff

I love this product. Before I purchased it I read up on GABA and some articles suggested that it should not work. Stuff about it not be able to penetrate the blood brain barrier. Nonetheless I purchased it ( $10 bucks why not). I cannot speak for others, but I can honestly say that my sleep is vastly better on it then without it. I immediately noticed that I do not get tired in the afternoons like I do without it. I don't care if it is a placebo effect or not I sold on it for life.

Dynamite sleep aid and more
Brady on 06/06/2015
My wife and I both use this for two reasons. First, a dose 2 hours before bed and we sleep like a million bucks, which is hard for me as I don't sleep well after a particularly hard CrossFit WOD. I also use it mid morning to keep my focus up and stay relaxed when things are stressful with work. Highly recommend GABA, at least it works great for me and mine.

Good sleeps with GABA
Jay on 04/06/2015
As many of you know - train hard = sore bod = bad sleep. I've tried both this GABA as well as the Phenibut. I find that the GABA works better for me. One scoop 30 mins before bed time and I sleep a lot better. I find a naproxen an hour before bed helps a lot too!

Didn't notice any difference in mood or sleep quality. Maybe it's just me cause everybody says differently. It's super easy to dissolve. One stir is enough.

I haven't tried GABA long enough to know if my hGh levels are being affected by this supplement but one thing is for sure. GABA knocks me right to bed and puts me in a better mood than normal the next day. I'll give it a 5 star for now, my opinion could change in the future though

I'm in my 50s and I train regularly. Am not a hardcore bodybuilder, or a physician, or an expert in supplements. In the brief time (couple of weeks) I have used GABA I have felt positive results with respect to mood 'levelling' and improvement of sleep patterns. I suggest you experiment with small dosing and increase gradually if you see fit and / or stagger your intake. Kudos to C.P. for pricing and service.
