My Personal Review

When it comes to supplements and natural remedies, they tend to be the preferred choice today when compared with prescription medicines due to lesser side effects. Before trying this supplement, I’ve tried anti-anxiety medications such as Xanax and Klonopin. While they worked very well, I found that they made me very drowsy for hours and gave me a bad dry mouth. The most concerning part for me was how they can be very addicting. In fact, there are a lot of people abusing this class of medications called benzodiazepine and it is not solving their anxiety issues at all. I’ve also tried natural remedies such as essential oils and calming teas. I liked them a lot because they don’t have any unpleasant side effects but the effects were very subtle and not as powerful. Then one day I came across this supplement, which I’ve heard before. The price was very affordable and my anxiety was still not managed so I decided to give it a try.

It took about 30 minutes for it to kick in and to my surprise, the effect was pretty noticeable and quite powerful for a supplement. I took the supplement when I was having a massive anxiety one day and made sure I didn’t have to go anywhere just to make sure because I was not sure how the supplement was going to affect me. Thankfully, there were no unpleasant side effects. What I noticed was my anxiety calming down and I was feeling pretty mellow, which is huge because my anxiety tends to be pretty severe when I have one and takes hours to calm down. When I test products and supplements, I do take in consideration that the positive result could be due to a placebo effect so I make sure I test them at different times of the day in different settings. I would say the results were very consistent over the few months period and there were never any side effects except that it can mellow you down so much that you can get a little sleepy. For that reason, I actually recommend this as a sleep aid as well if you tend to get anxiety around bedtime.

Overall, this is a pretty effective supplement for anxiety with no nasty side effects and disappointments. The effect is not at all subtle like the other natural supplements and it is a great alternative to anti-anxiety medications such as Xanax.

Pros and Cons


  • Very effective and works within 30 minutes – even on the intense anxiety like mine
  • No nasty side effects
  • Non-addicting
  • Very affordable compared to prescription medicine
  • Can be used to aid with sleep


  • The capsule is pretty big and a little bit tough to swallow


If you are in search of alternative medicine/supplement for your anxiety, I highly recommend this supplement. As someone who has severe anxiety, I can honestly say that this supplement is effective enough that I was able to replace the prescription medicine I was taking for my anxiety. The bonus is that the price is pretty reasonable for how many capsules you get in the bottle.

    Hi Blue,

    I’ve read that supplements are definitely the way to go. If it can replace prescription medicine, then I’m all for it.

    I was recommended multi-vitamins on one blog but they were high quality and very expensive. I’ve noticed that supermarkets sell some very cheap supplements but I am assuming that they will be of a lower quality. Is this so?

    The product you have reviewed looks very good indeed. I’m hyper, intense, anxious and bad-tempered (I’m really a nice guy though) so I need something like this.

    Thanks for putting it out there,


    1. Robert,

      Yes, unfortunately even with multi-vitamins, you pretty much get what you paid for. I wrote it in my blog about that and explained why cheaper vitamins won’t really be beneficial if you need to supplement yourself well with B12. For multi-vitamin, I recommend Smarty Pants and these ones are not only affordable but good quality. Check it out and let me know what you think 🙂

      If you ever decide to give the GABA supplement a try, please come back and share with us what you think. I hope it will give you the relief you need so you won’t feel as anxious.

      Thanks for reading my review and have happy holidays!

  2. I have heard a lot of good things about GABA and this product seems to be getting a lot of good feedback out there. It feels good to know that you personally find it to be working for you. I am looking forward to reading more of your articles on product reviews in the future 🙂

    1. Marianne,

      Thank you and I will be sure to post more reviews for you guys to check out soon. I agree though, I am happy myself that I finally found one that actually works. I’ve tried some other products which also contained GABA but those ones did not really do much for my anxiety. If you decide to give it a try, please do let us know in the comment section below 🙂

    I have come to like supplements since I took one and experienced its efficacy. The fact that they mostly do not have side effects makes them better alternatives to prescription medicines. Though they can sometimes be pricey, their efficacy more than covers that setback.
    Thanks for the information. I love your writing style which is fluid and yet interesting.

    1. Chyke,

      Thanks for your feedback. I really appreciate your comment. Some supplements are not as effective or their effects are just so subtle that they were hard to notice. If you decide to give this one a try, please let us know how it works for you 🙂 I would love to hear another success story from another member.

    1. Joyce,

      Yes, these are all my personal reviews and I won’t post a review unless I tested it myself.
      I’m glad you found this review helpful 🙂

  5. Thank you so much for the review! This definitely comes in handy as I was just searching for anti-depressant pills for my cousin who’s having severe panic attacks right now as a lot has happened in her life recently…
    I would definitely give this supplement a try as I’m trying to get her to stop taking her Xanax often.
    Just a quick question, how often do you have to take the pill? Does it have to be taken daily or only when necessary?

    Thank you so much!

    1. Wina,

      I am so happy you found this review helpful. The direction is to take daily and while it may sound like it is not enough at first, the supplement really does mellow you out for most of the day. It was easy for me to switch from Xanax to this supplement. If she suffers from constant panic, I would recommend take one capsule at breakfast so that it can keep her calmer throughout the day. That’s actually what I did and it worked well for me that way 🙂 Let me know if you have any more question and best of luck to your cousin.

  6. Hello Blue,
    This is good information. I like that Gaba is more natural than prescription anxiety medicine and non-addictive. I have anxiety sometimes and often wish I had something to calm me down safely.
    My daughter has major anxiety and has 4 young children. She will love to know about this supplement. I will share the link for this review with her today.
    I like knowing that you have actually taken this supplement and have personally experienced the reaction from it. That makes me feel more comfortable trying it.
    Have a great day!

    1. Devara,

      I’m glad you found this review helpful. I’ve tried different natural remedies for anxiety in the past but this supplement really stood out to me for its efficacy. I don’t post reviews unless I’ve personally tried it myself because I truly want this page to be a community where people can get honest reviews and resources to help them on their journey to feeling better. Please let us know how you like the supplement if you decide to give it a try 🙂

      1. Thanks for following up so quickly! If me or my daughter decide to give it a try, I’ll let you know what I think about it.
        Having anxiety is no fun. My ears turn bright red and fire hot when my anxiety kicks in. I think this supplement might really help me.

        1. Devara,

          No problem! Anxiety is tolerable for some but when it is intense and out of control, it is always nice to have something we can rely on. I hope the supplement works for you and your daughter. Looking forward to hearing from you again 🙂
