The natural GABA in Thorne's PharmaGABA-250 is produced via a fermentation process
that utilizes Lactobacillus hilgardii, the bacteria used to ferment vegetables in the preparation of
the traditional Korean cabbage dish known as kimchi. Clinical studies show this natural form of
GABA can increase the production of alpha-waves in the brain, creating a profound sense of
physical relaxation while maintaining mental focus.* In contrast, the stress-related beta-waves
in the brain are decreased.* In addition to changes in brain waves, natural PharmaGABA has
been shown to produce relaxation, as evidenced by reduced pupil diameter, heart rate, and
two natural markers of stress – salivary cortisol and chromogranin A.* In a head-to-head,
double-blind trial of natural PharmaGABA versus synthetic GABA, synthetic GABA did not
demonstrate these positive effects.*
