Vitacost GABA Gamma - Aminobutyric Acid -- 1000 mg per serving - 200 Capsules
Good night sleep with Vitacost GABA
This is a great sleep aid, and have found that I need to take it about 1 to 1 1/2 hours before bedtime. All Vitacost that I have tried are top notch!

I have been using Gaba before bed for years as it is helpful for relaxation. The Vitacost brand is just as effective as any I have used and is less expensive.

Mixed with melatonin & it's a dream come true!!!
I've had trouble sleeping for the past 20 years. I've been prescribed many sleeping aids over the years without good results. Melatonin never worked for me either.
I used to work (briefly-7 months ago) at a Dr. office where the M.D. specialized in holistic treatment. I noticed that his patients with sleeping problems were frantic when they were running out of a particular supplement that the Dr. had available to the patients. I read the container and it was a combo of GABA and melatonin. It was really expensive stuff. So, I decided to try a less expensive route to the same thing by using Vitacost GABA 1000mg and a melatonin 5mg sublingual. OMG: the first night, I took the GABA at the same time as the melatonin, and by the time the melatonin was dissolved I was literally passed out sitting up with my head slumped down on the couch arm. SHOCKED!! I've been sleeping like a baby ever since. I'm going on 2 months now and it still works perfectly. At this point in time, it takes about 30 minutes to knock me out but I've never had such wonderful sleep in my life! I have taken the GABA by itself to see if it worked and for me it did not. Obviously it works perfectly on it's own for many people!
I have noticed over time that I'm more likely to sleep through the night if I take 500mg of GABA (1 capsule) with melatonin, than if I take 1000 mg of GABA with melatonin. I think it is because I'm SOOOO knocked out with the 1000mg that when it starts to "wear off" that my body really notices it and it sort of wakes me up. That's my theory anyway.
If you need to regularly have a better night's sleep than you currently have, I highly recommend this product!!! It has changed my life!!!
