What is Gabatrol?
Gabatrol is an all-natural supplement designed to improve mood by reducing stress and anxiety.
The effects of Gabatrol have been likened to those of meditation. Arjuna Ardagh, author of Better than Sex: The Ecstatic Art of Awakening Coaching calls it ‘meditation in a bottle’, and he isn’t the only best-selling author to endorse Gabatrol. It’s also touted by John Gray, author of ‘Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus’.
He sells it through his website, where you can watch a video of him talking about his experiences with it. Are these claims really true?
According to the label on the bottle, Gabatrol can:
– Reduce stress and anxiety
– Improve focus and performance
– Provide positive mood and attitude
If taken on an empty stomach, Gabatrol takes effect within 15 minutes. On a full stomach, it may take up to 60 minutes. Either way, the effects last for 4-6 hours. If true, this makes it a very fast-acting and effective supplement.
How Does Gabatrol Work?
Gabatrol normalizes neurotransmitter levels and stabilizes electrical impulses between neurons to combat the chemical imbalances associated with depression. This results in a reduction of anxiety and stress, providing mental clarity which allows you to function at your best.
Who makes Gabatrol?
Gabatrol is produced by Pure Life, an American company which was founded by an Epidemiology graduate named Brian Cunningham. Pure Life is focused on restoring health and wellness by providing ‘high quality products that add value to your life’.
Gabatrol contains a proprietary blend, which means that we can see the ingredient it contains but their amounts are kept hidden. This blend is a total of 4455mg and consists of the following:
Phenyl-GABA – A more potent form of the neurotransmitter GABA.
L-Theanine – An amino acid found in green tea which aids the body’s response to stress, improves quality of sleep and reduces anxiety.
Taurine – An amino acid which lowers cortisol to reduce stress and anxiety.
Glycine – An amino acid and antioxidant which optimizes brain function by normalizing signals between nuerons.
L-Tyrosine – Increases levels of dopamine to improve mood.
Organic Sceletium Tortuosum – A South African herb also known as Kanna, which reduces symptoms of depression and improves mood.
Bioperine – This ingredients works to enhance the absorption of the rest of the formula to increase its effectiveness.
Gabatrol uses vegetarian capsules, but the formula contains gelatin, which makes it unsuitable for vegetarians. Other ingredients include magnesium stearate, rice flour and silicon dioxide.
Gabatrol is made in a GMP-certified facility, which means the production process follows strict quality control standards.
Recommended dosage of Gabatrol is 4-6 capsules per day, although the website states that some may require 5-6, and in times of extreme stress and anxiety, even 7 or more can be taken. An introductory dose of 3-4 capsules should be used to start with.
Gabatrol Side Effects
According to Gabatrol’s website, it is rare to experience side effects, and when they do occur, they are mostly mild. These side effects may include drowsiness, lethargy, reduced inhibition and euphoria.
Amazon reviews are very positive. Customers there said it helped them with PMS, anxiety, nervousness and depression. However, some noted that it became less effective over time when used regularly. Brain Pills gave Gabatrol 43%, calling it a ‘happy drug masquerading as a study drug’ and the people at Brain Enhancement Advisor were less than convinced, too. The only way to know for sure would be to try it for yourself.
A bottle of 20 capsules costs $17.99 directly from the Gabatrol website. For 45 capsules, that price goes up to $31.99 and for 90 capsules, it’s $53.99. If you’d rather not purchase through that site, it’s available at $53 from Mars Venus and $53.95 on Amazon.
Orders placed through Pure Life can be paid for by PayPal as well as all major credit cards. If Gabatrol doesn’t work for you, you can claim a full refund within 60 days of your purchase by returning your bottle with the unused pills, although shipping costs are not refundable.
There is evidence to suggest that Gabatrol works. However, while it may be an effective mood enhancer, it does little to enhance cognitive function. If you’re looking for something to give you a boost in energy and mental performance, look elsewhere. Gabatrol is more suited to those who want a mood enhancer to help them relax and lose their inhibitions, much like the effects of drinking a glass or two of wine. Since the required dosage is so high at anywhere between 3 and 7 capsules a day, one bottle is bound to run out fairly quickly and using Gabatrol long-term would end up being rather expensive. All in all, it’s potentially good as an alternative anxiety treatment, but lacking as a nootropic when pitted against the top 3.
