Calm your mind and let go of all restless thoughts

Take Gaba brain food in the evening to feel calm, relaxed, and ready to drift off into a great night's sleep.

Gaba is a neurotransmitter that keeps irritability and restlessness in check. 

Gaba Brain Food has all the natural ingredients to promote relaxation, reduce stress, and improve sleep.

GABA For Calm and Relaxation

GABA Brain Food™ is designed to support the normal, healthy production of GABA, a neurotransmitter essential to mental calmness.

Research suggests that the natural compounds in GABA Brain Food™ may help reduce temporary feelings of stress, as well as promote relaxation and improve sleep.

  • Promotes feelings of calmness
  • Supports relaxation
  • Supports clear thoughts and calms one’s mind
  • Supports restful, restorative sleep

This natural formula contains the necessary precursors and cofactors for optimal GABA availability.


GABA is a neurotransmitter which acts like a “brake” to keep excitation in check. Too much excitation can lead to irritability, restlessness, and sleep disruption to name a few. GABA’s role as the main inhibitory neurotransmitter helps provide this function in the human body.

GABA is what is known as a self-inhibiting compound. This means, when you take more GABA than your body needs, it blocks its own transport into the brain to maintain constant, normal GABA concentrations. To circumvent this mechanistic limitation, we included the ingredients L-Citrulline, Rosmarinic Acid, and Grape Seed Extract. These natural ingredients work synergistically to both increase GABA’s transport into the brain and work to sustain elevated concentrations of GABA.

The main challenge in increasing brain levels of GABA via supplementation is circumventing the molecule’s inherent self-inhibiting characteristic. It is suggested that increasing GABA’s permeability across the blood-brain barrier is an effective target to increase brain levels of GABA. One way to do this is to increase vasodilation by upregulating nitric oxide (NO) production in the body.

L-citrulline is a precursor to the amino acid, L-Arginine, which has a potent effect on stimulating NO production. Additionally, grape seed extract has been shown to increase the production of Endothelial Nitric Oxide Synthase (eNOS), an enzyme used to generate NO from L-Arginine.

Once GABA is made more permeable and able to freely cross the blood-brain barrier with increased NO production, it is naturally broken down by the enzyme GABA-Transaminase (GABA-T). To attenuate the degradation of GABA by GABA-T we incorporated rosmarinic acid into our formulation, which has an inhibitory effect on GABA-T, thus allowing for sustained, elevated levels of GABA in the brain for a longer period of time.

GABA

Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter with central nervous system (CNS) inhibitory activity. Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), converted from the principal excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate in the brain, plays a role in regulating neuronal excitability by binding to its receptors, GABA-A and GABA-B, and thereby causing ion channel opening, hyperpolarization and eventually inhibition of neurotransmission. [1]

GABA acts to slow down signals between neurons, making neurons less electrically excitable. [2]

Studies also show that It plays a role in neuronal stem cell differentiation, possibly giving it an important role in adult brain plasticity. [3]

L-Citrulline

Recently, research showed that with an increase in nitric oxide, GABA could more easily cross the blood brain barrier. Nitric oxide also causes GABA release in the hippocampus [4]. In a recent study, GABA supplementation by itself increased brain GABA 33%, but when combined with L-arginine, a stimulator of nitric oxide, brain GABA rose 383.3%. [5]

We chose to use L-Citrulline as the NO-booster in GABA Brain Food because it has been shown to be a more effective NO booster than L-Arginine [6,7,8,9]

Rosmarinic Acid

Rosmarinic acid, present in rosemary, lemon balm, and other herbal agents known for their calming properties, inhibits GABA-transaminase, which slows the breakdown of GABA [10]

Grape Seed Extract

Grape Seed Extract can also upregulate the eNOS enzyme for a further boost to nitric oxide [11]

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) is currently supporting research and studies on other potential abilities of grape seed extract to support healthy cellular function. [12]



Ingredients

image

As the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, GABA’s role is to act like a “brake” and balance excessive stimulation. GABA is associated with normal restful sleep, relaxation, tranquil thoughts, and a serenity of mind.

image

An amino acid found in foods like watermelon, dairy, beef and pork. L-Citrulline is converted into L-arginine, a known nitric oxide booster, which is theorized to help shuttle GABA into the brain across the blood-brain barrier.

image

Found in rosemary, sage, mint and basil, rosmarinic acid is a naturally occurring polyphenol flavonoid. It is also found in lemon balm and is used in aromatherapy to promote feelings of calm and relaxation.

image

Similar to L-citrulline, grape seed extract is used to increase nitric oxide production to help GABA pass across the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain.

Suggested Use

Take a serving of 1 or 2 capsules as needed, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

S-L-E-E-P!

Finally, a Gaba that works!! I take two of these along with 3 MagTech's about an hour before bed. I get super relaxed and drowsy and can fall asleep much easier than I would otherwise. Also, the best part, is that I basically stay asleep the whole night, and feel more rested in a shorter amount of time. I assume that I'm falling into a deeper sleep for a longer period, but that's just my guess. Whatever the reason, it works, and I'm thrilled! Note: I have purchased Gaba from health food stores in powder form and mixed with drinks, etc and took it in the evening. It usually gave me a headache, and did nothing else, so I was very hesitant to try Gaba Brain Food, thinking that it would do the same thing. That's why I said finally a Gaba that works! It produces the result for me that I hear so many other people use Gaba for.

IT ACTUALLY WORKS!

If your not familiar with your sleep chronotype I highly recommend finding out. As a dolphin my brain stays awake all night thinking about what I did wrong or could have done different. Basically I’m a ball of anixiety and stress and that makes it supper difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep. I learned about using gaba from a podcast I listen to and I’ve had the best results! I’ve never slept so good before in my life. I seriously swear by this!

Miracle for me

I had been taking Ambien for over 15 years. I started going to a new physician who refused to refill the Rx so I was forced to find other options. Anyone who has come off of Ambien knows the road ahead is not easy. I tried everything (trying to remain more natural as I did not want to return to taking another prescribed drug.) In my research, I realized that GABA might be my issue (or lack of it). I found your compound and I can't tell you how thankful I am. Sleep is now something I look forward to...which had not been the case for many years! I started with 3 each night for the first few weeks and now trying to cut back to see if a lower dose is as effective.

No more Rx for sleeping!

2 GABAS have replaced my Rx for sleep. This works (almost) as well, but w/out the groggy morning sideceffects. I’ll take that trade-off!
