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.

Currently use Gaba andtogether. 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 ( 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).

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.
