In memory of Mother: What is the difference between Pharma GABA and GABA?

If Mother were hearing about this product for the first time, she would definitely do her homework. GABA (gamma amino butyric acid) is the chemical that helps one deal with stress and calms one’s brain activity. If one has low levels of GABA, one will feel angry, short-tempered and irritable.

Now, there is a big difference between products that list GABA and those that are Pharma GABA and that’s to do with the process in making it. Pharma GABA is made by utilizing Lactobacillus hilgardii which is the same bacteria used to ferment vegetables in Kimchi. The bacteria, Lactobacillus hilgardii, is completely safe and is also found in fermented foods such as sauerkraut and pickles. From here it is sent through a process in which the end result is produced.

The pharma version is known to be “all natural” form of GABA. Most GABA is “synthetic” and is produced by a chemical process that isolates GABA from a non natural source, and as we know, “synthetic” should be avoided in human consumption.
