    GABA supplementation reviews/experiences?


    Anyone used it and noticed any improvements?
    I took it once for a week and didn't care for the weird rush it gives you

    The first time I used the recommended dosage, I freaked right out. Couldn't breath, and my heart went nuts. Scared the crap out of me. Used smaller doses a couple of times after that, before bed, but stopped using it shortly after. I still have an unopened container of NP bulk for cheap if anyone is interested.

    ive taken it numerous times before bed that i absolutely loved the effect on my relaxation and sleep, pair that with a great GH booster along the lines of EndoAmp max or HGHup and youll notice beenfits such as increased recovery, better sleep quality, a leaning out effect if you take it long enough....

    Currently use Gaba and ghenerate together. I only add it in on days i do heavy compound lifts. I always get a very deep and restfull sleep from them. Gaba really helps me calm down and fall asleep fast...i used to take it solo before bed (b4 ghenerate came around). Start with a low dosage and work your way up, otherwise it is likely you may get a sufficating sensation which can catch you off gaurd and probably a flush (similar to niacin).

    I take 2,5-3g but you should start with lower. I started with 1 and worked my way up 500mg extra each night until I reached 3. Never gone higher then that and never will

    used for for two years every day..calmed me down and made me in a more mellow state while I was on it for two years

    studies show 2 grams raises gh levels 5.5 x's for only 30 minutes after orally injesting it

    I used to do 5 grams every night

    studies have shown up to 18 grams is safe, I do not recommend over 5 grams

    HGhPro contains 600 mgs gaba with other sleep supplements that has been helping me with my sleep while I am preparing for my next competition

    ^^ I love how bodybuilders talk about sleep like it's an event--just goes to show how important this aspect of training is!

    GABA is great stuff, first time users may be taken by the flush sensation as others have stated, but now you know about it and will know to just relax if it gets a little overwhelming. great for GH boost and deep sleep. Can also be used pre workout for GH. I started using it on my heavy days. I've also heard of it used with people who experience anxiety.

    not to jack this thread but has anyone found a solid dose for pre workout gaba? I always err on the side of a low dose to avoid any lethargy or being too calm in the gym.

    I hadve had good experiences at 2.25 gms preworkout and 3 at bed. Used this doseage for my PCT and it seemed to work well over the summer

    i prefer higher power nutrition's bulk GABA powder. about 1/2 teaspoonful before bed does the trick. calms me down, relaxes me, and makes it easy to drift off into a deep sleep. i use it on stressful days at work as well, but only take 1/4 teaspoonful a few times throughout the day. it works great to keep you calm and relaxed.
