GABA Ingredient Manufacturer

GABA, short for gamma aminobutyric acid, is a naturally occurring amino acid that works as a chemical messenger in our brains. 

GABA also reduces activity in the nervous system. By doing that, it creates a calming effect, which helps your brain deal better with fear, stress, and anxiety.

1. Reduces Stress

Gamma aminobutyric acid is popular for its calming effects that have many benefits, including:

  • Reducing fear
  • Reducing stress
  • Improving mood
  • Reducing anxiety
  • Preventing seizures

Out of its many benefits, arguably the most important one is its effect on stress. GABA supplements have been shown to significantly reduce stress.

In case you didn’t know already, too much stress is directly linked to poor sleep, more anxiety, worse depression, and a weaker immune system. 

2. Reduces Anxiety

Multiple studies conducted in 2006 have shown that taking GABA supplements help people feel more relaxed during stressful events.

According to some of those studies, GABA is even more effective at reducing anxiety than L-theanine and many other popular anxiety-reducing supplements. 

Lastly, the same studies also conclude that the relaxing effects kick in within an hour of ingesting GABA.

3. Reduces High Blood Pressure

A couple of small and long published studies have investigated the effects of gamma aminobutyric acid for lowering blood pressure.

In one study from 2003, people with high blood pressure who regularly consumed a fermented milk product containing GABA for 2-4 weeks noticed reduced blood pressure.

Furthermore, another study conducted on people with borderline hypertension found out that taking a GABA-containing Chlorella supplement twice a day significantly reduced blood pressure.

4. Reduces Symptoms of Insomnia

According to this study, participants who were given 300 milligrams of GABA (approximately) an hour before going to bed fell asleep faster than those who were given a placebo.

Furthermore, the same study also concluded that taking GABA supplements not only helped participants fall asleep faster but also improved their sleep quality.

5. Reduces Fatigue

According to this Japanese study, 30 participants who were given a beverage containing 25-50 milligrams of GABA felt less fatigued both mentally and physically after performing a problem-solving task.


Health Issues Associated With GABA Deficiency

People who take gamma aminobutyric acid supplements regularly have fewer chances of suffering from:

  • Panic disorders
  • Seizure disorders
  • Mood disorders, such as depression
  • Movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

So to stay clear of these health issues, add a GABA supplement to your diet.


Daily Recommended Intake

Currently, there is not enough scientific evidence to determine the daily recommended intake of GABA for the average individual.

However, the following doses of GABA have been used in different studies:

  • For high blood pressure: 10+ milligrams of GABA was given to participants daily for twelve weeks.
  • For insomnia: 300 milligrams of GABA was given to participants an hour before they went to bed.
  • For fatigue: 25-50 milligrams of GABA was given to participants regularly for a couple of weeks.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
