GABA Calming Support

Handle the ups and downs of life with more composure

When you’re more calm and collected, you’re much less likely to overreact to the inevitable frustrations of life – and far more likely to think clearly and respond appropriately.

If your hectic schedule (and these days that means everyone) is causing you too much aggravation, frustration, and irritability, take a deep breath and try GABA Calming Support.

GABA Calming Support helps support the production of calming brain waves, correct stress-causing nutritional deficiencies, and promotes relaxation. The formula’s key ingredient, GABA, is shown in studies to help increase calming brain waves, while reducing “anxious” brain waves.

This comprehensive relaxation formula also includes vitamin B6 and magnesium, as well as lemon balm, an herb traditionally known for its calming effects.

Reviews

Definitely worth trying...I love it.

This product works. When I feel stressed I go for the GABA. Helps me get thru 'those days'.

This is really helping

I have been using GABA Calming Support for about 2 months on a regular basis, Monday through Friday. These are the days when I have felt most anxious because of work related stress. I have noticed a distinct improvement, with ability to remain calm and accomplish what I need to do without feeling panic inwardly.

Helps calm my brain

This product truly does help calm my brain. I have noticed a huge difference in how the " noise" in my head has been reduced. I can focus better and can enjoy my life without all the background noise of anxious or repetitive thoughts running in my head. It has made a great improvement in my life. Highly recommend!!

Amazing product 100% recommend

Calmed over stressed situations of life - helped me so much. I am so calm; no side effects. I LOVE this product and am so thankful to Dr. Daniel Amen.

I enjoy this product.

Not as effective as NeuroLink, but promotes a nice tranquil mind.

Amazing product no question!

My son has struggled with focus and attention. We chose this supplement and have never looked back. He and I both can tell when he takes his supplements and when he does not. As can his teachers. An amazing product, no question!

Game Changer

Living with constant worry was taking a serious toll on my body and my brain. After watching Dr. Amen's videos I began to understand how damaging my worries are to my brain. This product was recommended to me during my visit to the Amen Clinic. After incorporating this product into my daily routine, I have been able to initiate steps towards healing my brain. I feel the calming effects of my GABA's throughout the day. I can't say this supplement made an impact on my life- because it is literally changing the direction of my life! Thank you Dr. Amen!

Amazing supplement

My daughter has been taking GABA Calming Support for just over a month in combination with Serotonin Mood Support. Her extreme rage behaviors have almost completely stopped, and when she does get upset, she is able to regroup and turn it around in a fraction of the time. This supplement is amazing in my honest opinion.

This product has been a lifesaver for me!!!

This product has been a lifesaver for me!!! It really helped calm my worries without any drowsiness. Now I am able to calmly deal with life's daily problems while thinking rationally and clearly before responding or reacting. So nice to have something like this available. Thank you, Dr. Amen, for offering this product along with all the other educational materials you provide!!!

GABA

GABA every day - a must have!!!

truly calming

Since I have begun to use this product, I have felt more calm and clear headed. I have experienced no side effects while taking this supplement.

Use with caution

My daughter was taking this for several months when a health coach did extensive blood work and found that she was experiencing B6 toxicity. Otherwise a good product, but we discontinued immediately and found a GABA supplement without the added B6.

MIracle in a bottle

I have been on this for 3 weeks now and noticed a huge difference after day 3. What a great product.

Miracle multi-issue supplement

So far, my favorite supplement. It's used by 3 out of 4 members of our family so far. My son takes it combined with Taurine and it started working within 1 day (a miracle in my opinion). And my husband takes it as well with great results.

No more worries.

I was having anxious thoughts after witnessing a traumatic accident. After two days of taking GABA I wasn't having them anymore. I ran out for a couple days and the anxiousness returned. I realized that I needed to take this supplement a little longer to allow my brain to fully recover.

Noticeable difference right away

I didn't even know my son struggled with anxiousness until he took Dr. Amen's ADD test online. There were no outward signs. When he started taking this supplement, he said he noticed a difference right away.

like the calming effect

Been using this for about a month and find brings me down a few notches with a calming effect without feeling tired or groggy. I like the all natural approach.

Calming for sure

My daughter has been on this for about a month. Through the busy holiday season, it seemed to take the edge off of her worries.

This works for me

Good product . I will continue to take GABA.

I feel more relaxed and have less worrying thoughts

I have noticed a positive change in myself since introducing these supplements. I however need to do several "introduction and elimination" experiments before I can conclude that the positive changes are due to the supplement and not other factors. Therefore only 4-star rating for now. Will write a follow up review.

Works great!

Is amazing for reducing anxiousness and keeping you calm. My daughter notices a big difference taking these.

GABA!! It really helps:)

Use it everyday!! A must have!! One bottle of 90 capsules (take 3-4 capsules a day.. pricey-yes!! but worth it!!) GABA calming support should be super sized to 180 capsules!!

Calming!!

I buy two bottles a month. Yes I do!! IT HELPS!!:)

It really helps:)

Must use everyday!!

Quiet Your Mind

GABA Calming Support quiets my overactive Basal Ganglia so my mind is quiet. I love this product, and taking it invites me to enter my meditative daily practice with a quiet mind.

Zen

Absolutely love this product. Truly amazing how much calmer my mind became.

A must have!!

Love GABA calming support. I just bought two bottles!! I use it every day!! It helps...

The veil of angst removed

GABA Calming support is A-MAZING! My overactive and repetitive thinking has shifted into a more fluid and creative perspective. I don't panic or dive too deep into matters that aren't important, which enables me to use this energy saved for circumstances that are important.

This really works!

This product is fantastic for taking the edge off of stressful situations. I prefer natural interventions and GABA Calming Support is wonderful.

The name says it all - calming support!!

Calming support!! NEED THIS!! Have been using it for about a month. Just received second bottle. Have to be more diligent and take every day. Worth it!!

Has really helped me

GABA has really helped balance my mood throughout the day & seems to help calm me in order to sleep better at night.

Excellent!

This has helped my husband's anxiety a lot.

Super Calming Product!

We give GABA Calming Support to my daughter 2x per day (as recommended by an MD). It has made a big difference in her ability to calm down and self-soothe.

Best natural supplement I've taken!

This is one of, if not the best, supplements I have taken. It helps me think more clearly, it has also helped to stabilize my mind and my mood!! My husband notices a difference when I don't take this. I take it daily and I'm so thankful I've found something that works naturally!

Great product that really works.

I've been searching for a natural product that really works to help with my anxiousness. Through research, I had learned about GABA. This formula is a great over-the-counter alternative because it offers substantial relief and doesn't impair you, nor does it require a prescription. I am happy to recommend GABA Calming Support to others and hope that I can always have some nearby for my anxiety.

Peace & Quiet

Great for calming the brain at night. Helps you turn off from a busy day, relax, and quietly drift off to peaceful sleep.

GABA is a really good product to relax.

I struggle with worries. Some are real and some not. I tend to make a horror movie out of small problems. GABA makes me calm. After all, life is too short to not enjoy.

I will buy the product again.

I've been using the product for about a month and so far, I am pleased. It is really helping me to slow the thinking down when I am going to bed.

Life changing

I honestly don't understand how the GABA works, but it has been life changing for myself and the people around me. It has helped me manage my anger and stress. I don't lash out on people now. Also, it helps smooth my mood before I have my period. I really can't say enough great things about GABA. It has been the answer to my prayers.

Great results!

My daughter has always struggled with worry. After taking GABA calm she is much calmer and far less stressed. Tests, although easy for her were always anxiety provoking. School is now easier than ever and tests do not bother her anymore. She is much more of a pleasure to be around too. I highly recommend this product. this product.

I love it!

I love this stuff! After taking it for a week I noticed that I was calmer and not having looping thoughts. I take it daily.

Thankful for this product

I took the brain type test and this supplement was recommended for my brain type so I thought I'd give it a try. I've noticed my thought process has become less worrisome and my body reacts differently to anxious situations. If I am in an anxious situation, I feel like my body doesn't go as crazy as it used to and I can still keep working. I plan on continuing to take this supplement; I find it very valuable to my life. I like that it's a natural solution. I like that I feel like I'm still the same person, just not as hindered with anxiety.

helps to relax

It helps relax before going to bed. It helps calm the mind.

Grateful for relief

Relief! Finally! Thank you so much! And with the diet & exercise changes I am making through the Brain Warrior's Way class I know that a healthy future awaits!

A favorite product for living a stress-free life.

GABA Calming Support has become a favorite product. I had to take the DMV written test for driver's renewing their license, and was anxious. So I prayed, took GABA Calming Support, and Dr. Amen's Brain Boost and when I entered DMV I was totally calm and focused, and I passed the test! This is a wonderful product, and invites calm whenever one is feeling anxious.

I can feel the calming effect

Critical to my brain health.

Life changing

I've been trying all of the products Dr. Amen makes and they all have been helping me tremendously. This one I like a lot. I take it with the Neurolink and it has really helped me. I've been telling everyone I know about dr amen. Seriously love these products.

Awesome!

Amazing!
So glad this product helps with sleep if taken at night.

So thankful for GABA calming

This is the first thing I reach for in the morning. My day is loaded with anxiety for no reason but not anymore since I've been using GABA calming! I'm able to stop and breath and count to 10. Other brands do not have the same effect.

GABA Calming Support

Effective in quieting my brain.

Effective & Meaningful

I take the recommended dosage for this product daily, along with the Everyday Stress Relief. These products taken in tandem with the right exercise for me and a specific diet for my brain type, has greatly improved the quality of my life. I'm incredible grateful for these brain specific supplements of the highest quality. For me personally these products are very meaningful in their dosage, and are incredibly well thought out. I'm giving myself time and consistency in taking them to see the best results. God Bless you Dr Amen! Really. Highly recommend these products.

Excellent, effective, and worth the money.

My son is taking GABA Calming Support and after taking it for two months, we have noticed a huge difference in his control over his emotions and behaviors. He also can focus better at school and is actually loving school for the first time! Highly recommend this product!

If you are looking Calm and restful sleep...

I can't say enough great things about this product! It really does keep you calm. I take my daily dose about 30 mins before bed. Lay down and within a few minutes, I start to feel calm and relaxed and then I doze off to dreamland. I notice my sleep is so much more restful than without taking GABA

Restful sleep aid

I take this before bed to assist in a restful sleep! Really does the trick.

An amazing product

I so love Dr. Amen's supplements. This is the first time I have tried GABA Calming. I take it if I feel at all stressed about something, and it helps me calm down, and also helps me sleep. A great product!

Bought it for my husband..... taking it myself:)

I admit, I purchased this because it was on a fantastic sale.... for my husband. He raved so much about how much it helped that I just had to try it myself. Sometimes, we don't know how grumpy we are until we aren't. That's all I'm saying:)

Amazing!

I have trouble shutting my brain off at night, making getting a good sleep difficult. I've been taking this nightly and have found that I've been getting much better rest generally, and it doesn't take hours to fall asleep (like it had been.)

Relax

This helps my brain calm down. I take it before going to bed. Great product.

Decreased Anxiety

I'm less anxious after using this product for only 1 week and focused.

calms the emotional storm within

LOVE this product. I take 2-3/day. I no longer over react to things that come up in the day. There could be a storm of things going on and I'm cool as a cucumber! No more cursing or yelling. (its a family trait!!!) I have to thank my sister for putting me onto Dr. Amen and his products. They work!

Great mood booster

This saves my sanity. Thank you Dr. Amen. I hope we'll have one of your centers in the Ft. Worth/Dallas area.

Husband

My husband has been taking this for about a month now and not only does he feel better he knows when he doesn't take it. It has helped him find clarity in his thinking and calm his mind so he can focus better. I'm now a believer!

This is a wonderful alternative to synthetic medication

I was skeptical at first, thinking there is no way this will be beneficial. It proved me wrong. GABA CALMING is great and really helps with irritability. I'm a fan and will be taking for a long time!!

This saved my life!!

I don't know what I would have done without Gaba Calming Support. This supplement has made all the difference in my recovery of getting back to my normal self and has helped calm my anxiety. No more mind chatter at night for me!!

By far, my favorite Amen product.

This is by far the product that has helped me the most. I take this around 1 pm as my days stress has already got me over stimulated. When I get home from work, I take it again around 5 or 6pm and it gets me ready to settle down for a good nights sleep, using Restful Sleep. Great combination.

Calms my restless mind

On a stressful day or on nights that I just can't turn my thoughts off, I have found GABA Calming Support to be very helpful. It calms my mind during the day so that I can be more focused and productive. When I have had a stressful day, it helps my mind to mellow out in the evening so that I can get to sleep more easily.

So much improvement!

I use GABA Calming Support with Serotonin Mood Support, GABA NeuroVite, and Omega-3 Power and I saw so much improvement in just a week. I am able to sleep better, control negative thoughts better, and think more clearly. I don't have the anger outbursts I used to have and I just have a better mood in general.

Quiets my mind

After taking this for a month, I find that instead of my mind racing constantly and having bouts of mild anxiety throughout the day, I feel more relaxed and calm in general, and better able to react to stressful events.

Unbelievable!

I cannot believe the difference that taking GABA Calming Support has made in the way I feel on a daily basis. I feel definitely calmer, more in control of my thoughts and no "scatter brain." I love this stuff!!

Very beneficial for my daughter

Gaba calming does just that - it keeps my daughter more calm, more accepting and more balanced. She fees the difference and we see the difference!

Helps my daughter!

This product is the first in a series of tries to find a non-medication solution to help my daughter sit still and focus in school. This is the first product we used that the teacher finally said she saw a helpful difference. We are glad to find something that works!

Excellent

Great product

Ingredients & Facts

  • GABA
    Gamma-amino-butyric acid (GABA) is an amino acid and neurotransmitter that regulates brain excitability by inhibiting excessive firing of neurons, resulting in a sense of calm. Supplementing with GABA can help flip the "off" switch on worrisome, ruminating thoughts by supporting the body’s natural mechanism for quieting the mind.
  • L-Theanine
    This unique amino acid is not incorporated into proteins and seems to regulate GABA, dopamine and serotonin circuits. It is rapidly absorbed and quickly shifts the brain toward a predominance of alpha waves, which are associated with relaxation. Clinical research indicates l-theanine can have calming and relaxing effects while preserving mental focus.
  • Lemon balm
    Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a member of the mint family and has been used as a medicinal herb in Southern Europe for many years. Research suggests that it may inhibit GABA transaminase, the main enzyme that breaks down GABA, therefore ensuring the brain maintains a healthy supply.

    In one controlled study, volunteers taking higher doses of lemon balm extract experienced better mood and significantly increased calmness and alertness. [Source: Lemon balm | University of Maryland Medical Center]
  • Magnesium
    Known as "the relaxation mineral," magnesium plays an important role in muscle relaxation, energy production, and the de-activation of adrenaline. Research suggests that magnesium’s calming properties are enhanced when taken with Vitamin B6. Magnesium may also help to correct stress-causing nutrient deficiencies.
  • Vitamin B6
    Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is important in the production of such critical neurotransmitters as serotonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, GABA – which help improve mood -- and melatonin, a hormone that supports your natural body clock.

Dr. Amen talks about GABA Calming Support

His recommended formula promotes relaxation, eases anxiety and supports healthy stress management

The Science

  • GABA
    GABA or gamma-aminobutyric acid is an amino acid that regulates excitability of the brain through GABA receptors. It is essential for brain metabolism and functions to decrease neuronal activity and inhibit nerve cells from excess firing. GABA has mild relaxation properties and can enhance mood and support sleep. Clinical studies on GABA are limited but electroencephalogram (EEG) studies demonstrate the efficacy of GABA supplementation on increasing alpha band brain wave function, which serves to induce relaxation and alleviate stress.1

  • Lemon Balm
    Lemon Balm (Melissa Officinalis) is a perennial shrub of the Lamiaceae family which has been attributed as a calming agent with mild sedative effects and is often used to reduce anxiety and stress. It has been demonstrated to improve cognitive performance and increase calmness in healthy volunteers.1-3

  • Magnesium
    Magnesium is a mineral essential in a variety of cellular processes including cellular respiration, protein synthesis, membrane stability, regulation of vascular tone and is important in the neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems.1 More than 300 enzyme systems use magnesium as a cofactor. As magnesium is required for stabilization of the nerve cell, chronic deficiencies can interfere with the transmission of nerve impulses, resulting in irritability and restlessness. Supplementing the body with magnesium can reduce inflammation2 and promote relaxation and calm. Preliminary studies where magnesium is combined with a vitamin B6 regimen demonstrate improvement in attention and reduction in central nervous system hyperexcitability in some children.3,4

  • Vitamin B6
    Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is a water-soluble vitamin essential in the metabolic pathways of amino acids, glucose, and fatty acids and is a cofactor in the production of neurotransmitters including serotonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and GABA. It is required by the nervous system and is needed for normal brain function as well as DNA synthesis. Supplementation with Vitamin B6 alone and in combination with other nutrients has been shown to be helpful to improve attention in children.1-4
