    I believe the carrier they used for it was no longer able to be made.

    If you are looking for a "GABA" type product, check out Abyss. It has a combination of GABA, phenibut and Tryptophan. It also has zinc, mag, and b-6. You can't use it every night because you may build a tolerance to the Phenibut, but I use it every other night and it continues to deliver benefits.

    Yeah, I'm looking for a GABA type product but not necessarily just for sleep. That's what I loved about NeuroBalance, it could be taken during the day too, like in the early evening just to de-stress, unwind even hours before bed.

    I don't know what the carrier was but IMHO it made it so much better than regular Phenibut and less tolerance issues. Shame it didn't last forever!

    Guys - 3clipse is right. The carrier is gone forever (from what I've heard).

    Agree on bummer and shame - was really good stuff.

    FYI - same deal with the tropins. They are gone also.

    Sorry.

    Man that stinks, i really liked neurobalance. However, i can certainly vouche for Abyss. It's fantastic in producing quality sleep inducing effects.

    Yeah, I called IBE today, and they said the same thing (discontinued)

    Bummer! My wife and I really liked the product as well. Since GHB wasn't easily available anymore we had to settle for Neurobalance. But now what? UGH!

    That sucks. It was a solid product and I enjoyed it very much. Why do all the good products always go away? (neurobalance, aspire36, etc)

    Do you think that Biochem Sports Tension RX is an alternative to neurobalance - especially to ease stress and anxieties? It does have the same ingredients as neurobalance...?

    Try a phenibut/L-theanine combo product. IMO, its more effective and cheaper than neurobalance.

    One of my favorite combinations for daytime relaxation is L-theanine, Phenibut, Rhodiola and Relora. This combo is pretty remarkable.

    Yep! Your combo is good. Another good option (with GABA, Phenibut, L-Theanine, and so on) that has not been listed here is Somnidren-GH by Millennium Sport Technologies: http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/m...nidren-gh.html

    You can purchase bulk theanine at other retailers for a very reasonable price. Much cheaper than capped versions. I don't think I'm allowed to post links to vendors outside of NP however. NP stocks some good bulks though:

    http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/p...wder-100g.html

    http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/n...-50-grams.html

    http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/n...e-90-caps.html

    http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/n...-120-caps.html

    The now theanine is very good, its just a tad low dosed for me and it becomes cost prohibitive. I really like 500-1000mg of theanine, but others might not require as much.

    At the same mg-dose, you should. As you know, Suntheanine® is synthesized 100% pure L-Theanine. So, you would have to take more, probably much more, L-Theanine in terms of milligrams to get the same result as with Suntheanine®.

    Yeah let me just tell you that this infuriated me! They literally pulled it out from under us without saying anything in advance. It was honestly the best product out there that I have used for relaxation. We are going to get it in capsules soon though.

    If we get them in capsules wouldnt it be the same with Biochem's Tension RX? ANyone tried this - how is it?

    Would neurobalance still deliever the same responses in capsule form?

    PS - when is the capsule form to be ready?

    Could be ready within a month or so. It won't be identical to Neurobalance but we are still testing it.

    Yeah, seems odd.

    I'm not interested in drama if that's what LMD is thinking. I'm just curious seeing as how I've used it and now it's suddenly discontinued.

    Sorta. Who made them?

    If the carrier worked so good, I would like to know more about it. That's all. I need something to Google.

    Sure.

    I just wasn't aware that the carrier was owned by someone other than IBE.

    Basically the pharmaceutical company who created the delivery system for Neurobalance, Matrix, and all of the Tropins pulled the plug on it out of nowhere. We got them to continue Matrix for right now but they refused the tropins and Neuro. They are pushing a new oral insulin product for diabetics so we are the least of their concerns and I guess they no longer wanted to be bothered. We have tried our hardest to get them to make it occasionally but they hold the patent on it so we can't really go anywhere else.

    I will continue nagging them about it though until we can get permission to use that delivery system lol.

    That sounds quite unfair. And brutal! Such companies should show more consideration and business acumen. After all, they are not giving the compound/delivery system away for free!

    I found it to be extremely unprofessional myself. The owner of IBE didn't say anything at first because we still had another product being developed by then but when they dropped that shortly after I had a fit and made her talk to them about it. I will keep on it and hopefully we can get it back one day. The stuff really is amazing.

    I guess they figure it doesn't matter whether they are unprofessional or not to little ol' IBE because the amount of money they make off of us compared to the pharmaceutical industry is peanuts.

    That would be a very myopic point of view. Microsoft also started small...
