What is a GABA Supplement?

Fast-acting, natural relief for nervousness and acute stress!

When day-to-day stresses feel a little too much to handle, or feelings of nervous tension cause discomfort, GABA offers a convenient, natural way to restore your sense of calm, without drowsiness. GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is an inhibitory neurotransmitter that increases the production of alpha brainwaves (associated with meditation, a sense of calm, relaxed alertness, and mental clarity) and decreases beta brainwaves (associated with hyperactivity, scattered thoughts, and nervousness).

According to Statistics Canada, one in four Canadian workers find even a regular day “quite a bit” or “extremely” stressful. Meditation, yoga, a relaxing bath, and a walk in the woods are all great ways to unwind, but while it’s important to find healthy ways to minimize and manage ongoing stress, we could all do with a helping hand once in a while.

Stress-Relax® 100% Natural GABA from Natural Factors provides 250 mg of GABA for fast-acting relief from nervousness and acute stress, and also helps promote relaxation and ease of nervous tension. Demonstrating Natural Factors ongoing commitment to sourcing only the highest quality ingredients, Stress-Relax GABA features natural Pharma GABA®, a unique, clinically tested form of GABA produced by natural fermentation and shown to be readily absorbed and capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, making it more effective than synthetic GABA to calm a racing mind.

In times of stress, the brain typically increases GABA production to support relaxation and focus. Too much excitatory activity, coupled with insufficient GABA synthesis, can make it hard to remain calm and to get a good night’s sleep. As a result, GABA can provide support for a healthy sleep schedule.

Stress-Relax GABA is non-GMO, and contains no artificial colours, preservatives, or sweeteners; no dairy, sugar, wheat, gluten, soy, corn, egg, fish, shellfish, animal products, salt, or tree nuts. Stress-Relax GABA is also suitable for vegetarians and vegans, and offers all-round support for occasional stress, restlessness, and insomnia.
