GABA is a neurotransmitter that facilitates the calming, parasympathetic response of the nervous system. Supplementing with GABA may be especially helpful for those prone to worry, anxiety, and over-thinking. Fortunately, taking GABA does not cause drowsiness, and actually improves cognition. It can be taken during the day for calming focus, or at night to relieve unwelcome mental chatter.

What Happened To Kavinace PM?

Some may have experience using GABA in the form of
“phenibut” (B-phenyl-y-aminobutyric acid) – which was an ingredient in Neuroscience’s Kavinace formulas. Kavinace PM Ultra was an extremely popular supplement that many people depended on for effective sleep, so many are struggling to find an effective replacement for sleep.

Other Forms of GABA

While the phenibut form of
GABA has been discontinued, there are other forms of GABA. However, uptake of oral GABA in the form of capsules or tablets is not particularly effective. For that reason, Dr. Christopher Shade, PHD, developed
Liposomal GABA with L-theanine. Liposomal formulations support the increased uptake of nutrients where they are needed.

Additional L-Theanine

Quicksilver’s GABA formula also contains L-theanine, which is a calming amino acid found in high amounts in green tea. Supplementing with L-theanine can lead to brain wave patterns that are similar to those present after meditating. Like GABA, L-Theanine also works to help mental strain, focus, and balance the nervous system. This product can also be used when drinking coffee, to help subdue any caffeine-based nervousness.

Benefits of Liposomal GABA with L-Theanine

  • Supports rest and relaxation
  • Calming without interfering with cognition
  • Supports a balanced nervous system
  • Can be used during the day or before sleep

Suggested Use:
