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.*
Benefits of PharmaGABA:
- Natural Source: GABA is an important brain chemical that acts like a brake during times of runaway stress*
- Calm: Promotes a calm, relaxed, focused state of mind*
- Sleep: Supports restful sleep*
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.* GABA is non-habit forming.
The natural GABA in this product 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.
