GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid)

What Is It?

Gamma Amino Butyric Acid known as GABA is an amino acid that acts as an inhibitory and depressive neurotransmitter in the central nervous system including the brain.

GABA is a chemical that is made in the brain to a large extent by glutamic acid; an amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of certain proteins.

2. What Does It Do?

GABA works to enhance the regulation of sedation and sleep and may potentiate certain benefits associated with a state of ‘deep-sleep’ such as increased growth hormone levels. 

Specifically GABA regulates the depressive and sedative actions that occur in brain tissue by blocking nerve impulses, and is therefore critical for relaxation.

Several studies also support the notion that GABA has the potential to raise Human Growth Hormone levels, particularly when supplemented at periods of time around resistance training.

3. When Do I Take It?

 To take advantage of the relaxative and growth hormone properties of GABA, it is best taken 30-45 minutes prior to sleep. Sleep Formula supplements containing GABA should be taken at least 1 hour following your last meal of the day. The most efficacious dose is between 2000-3000 milligrams per serve.

4. How Long Does It Take To Work?

GABA starts working as soon as it enters the bloodstream, which is typically 15 – 30 minutes after consumption. Users can expect to experience increased relaxation and sedation, within this time-frame.

5. How Much Does It Cost?

Sleep Formula supplements containing GABA, range anywhere from $3.00 to $4.00 per serve, depending on the size and quality of the product. 

Based on an average price of $3.50 per serve, and based on five serves per week, supplementing with pre-workout products containing GABA will typically cost around $60 per month.

6. What Are The Top Products?

We recommend using a Fat Loss supplement such as Core Nutritionals ZZZ or Blackstone Labs Anesthetized. These products contain only the highest quality GABBA compound and are some of the best priced products on the Australian market.
