    Does anyone know much about it? Does it really make your body produce more Growth Hormone and if so can this help increase muscle mass? Whats the general consensus?

    I don't know anything about the product, but its claim to "increase GH by 550%" has made my bullshit detector go off. Here's an explanation of why supp. companies do this:

    So while it may raise your GH levels by a small amount, don't expect much from it.

    Gaba is one of those supplements I got just for the fuck of it... I wouldn't recommend it... however it had a few interesting effects when combined with alcohol.

    Is this basically the same thing as GHB? I've had some recreational experience with GHB and testify to its abillity to make a person sleep. In fact I have also seen instances where people have had a "little" trouble waking up resulting in an ambulance ride to the hospital. Additionally GHB is extremely addictive from my experiance which far outweighes any of its possible benefits in my opinion.(pls excuse the spl.)

    yea sorry to bring up an old thread everybody, but i searched for it to see if any of you had taken gaba before...well, i just took some last night when my order from bulknutrition came(btw, they sent me a free gymbag with a little 35$ order).

    i think i took about 2-3 grams of gaba about an hour before bed and here's what i experienced...a few minutes after taking it my arms and legs started tingling, not in a bad way like your foots asleep, but it felt like someone was rubbing a feather against me or something lol. and then, everything started to get kinda funny like i was drunk or high but not nearly as intense...i did get a real good nights sleep too but i dont know if thats from the gaba or the grueling workout and finals i went through yesterday. but, i did have a crazy ass dream about a flea market in vegas that i dont think i need to tell you all about here lol. yea, so far, i like gaba cuz i felt really good this morning and i usually dont remember my dreams i give it a :bigthumb: im gonna take 4 grams tonight:noes:

    how much do you take and should it be cycled? i was reading that taurine actually can promote the body to release its own gaba(its just an amino acid afterall) and i dont want my body to no longer be able to produce its own gaba by taking it orally too much if thats what would happen.

    As with anything you take to sleep before bed, you can become dependant on it to fall asleep. A simple google search for 'gaba' should give you more information than you need. I forgot whether it should be cycled (likely) but I intend to use it only when needed.

    GHB and gaba are structurally similar, and act on some of the same receptors in the brain. Some effects will be similar, but they're not the same compound and hence won't act the same.

    GABA and GABOB are much better when injected or applied transdermally (see pGH)
