Here is the first review I have ever done so bear with me. I originally bought this item for my girlfriend but I decided to try it. The people I worked with suggested I try pure GABA powder to help my girlfriend get to sleep. The one recommended to me specifically was this one by Life Extension.
Life Extension Gaba Powder Review – Promotes a Relaxed State

I decided to take it the same time as my girlfriend. Now me, being a bigger guy, I figured I would have to take more to be effected by it. I was wrong. I took the minimum suggestion and within 10 minutes my head was so drowsy. I felt beyond relaxed very fast and I wanted to go to sleep. I also slept for a solid 8 hours without being woken up or waking up in the middle of the night. The next day when I woke up I also did not feel a “hangover” effect from the GABA.
Now my girlfriend also took the GABA because as stated previously it was intended for her. She is a very small girl and very light weight so I figured it would effect her more than it did me. To my surprise she didn’t even feel it. Now she has sleep problems to begin with so you can’t exactly blame the GABA.
