What it Does:

PharmaGABA® provides a gentle, non-habit-forming source of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), the calming brain neurotransmitter.* GABA helps promote mental relaxation and stress reduction without causing drowsiness.*


How It Works:

GABA in the body

GABA is a major neurotransmitter widely distributed throughout the central nervous system. Because too much excitation can lead to irritability, restlessness, and sleep problems, it must be balanced with inhibition. GABA – the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain – provides this inhibition, acting like a “brake” during times of runaway stress.

Thorne’s unique GABA formulation

The GABA in Thorne’s PharmaGABA-100 and PharmaGABA-250 is produced via a fermentation process that utilizes Lactobacillus hilgardii, the bacteria used to ferment vegetables in the preparation of the traditional Korean cabbage dish known as kimchi. A clinical study found this form of GABA can increase the production of alpha-waves in the brain, creating a profound sense of physical relaxation while maintaining mental focus.1* In contrast, the stress-related beta-waves in the brain are decreased.* In addition to changes in brain waves, PharmaGABA has been shown to produce relaxation, as evidenced by increased levels of salivary secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) in a group of volunteers placed in a stressful situtation.1*

When could you use PharmaGABA?

PharmaGABA-100 and PharmaGABA-250 could be used for individuals feeling overwhelmed, over-committed, stressed out, or in need of restful sleep.*


Suggested Use:

Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health care practitioner.
