GABA powder is Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid in powdered form. GABA is a naturally occurring compound that acts as a neurotransmitter in our brains. GABA is a nootropic or cognitive enhancer. The opposite of a stimulant, GABA acts as a depressive, but don’t let that scare you! What this means, is that GABA works to relax us and clear our minds, helping us to wind down.
GABA molecules attach themselves to GABA receptors found within our brain tissue and have a calming effect. This may help to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, helping you to relax and wind down.
GABA plays two main roles in the body.
If you have trouble winding down after work and falling asleep then GABA could be a supplement that benefits you. Many people find that they fall asleep much faster when they take GABA supplements at night.

A dose of 2g of GABA around 30 minutes before bed can help you fall asleep faster and have a more restful sleep.
VPA GABA is a pure GABA powder that provides you with exceptional value for money.
VPA GABA powder comes unflavoured and in its natural form. It has a slightly bitter taste, but most people find that they can take it comfortably in water alone.
GABA can be taken in water alone or added to any other drink you are taking before bed. Some people like to take it in a relaxing tea, or with some casein protein.
One serve of VPA pure GABA is 2g. One 200g tub of VPA GABA has 100 serves. We recommend weighing a serve of GABA with microscales to obtain an accurate serving size. If you do not have microscales, a flat standard teaspoon of GABA is around 3.4g. ½ teaspoon will provide around 2g dose.
For muscle growth, a dose of 3-5g of GABA per day is recommended. For sleep, VPA recommends taking 2g of GABA around 30 minutes before bed.
For maximum benefit, GABA is best taken around 30 minutes before plan to go to bed. You can take it on its own in water or in another liquid of your choice. Some people mix GABA with casein prior to going to bed. Together they combine to give you a great night sleep and maximise your muscle building and repair.
The natural properties of amino acids mean that they tend to take on moisture. This is why silicon moisture sachets are added during the packing process. Once your GABA is opened it will start to take on moisture and should be stored in a cool dark location to keep it as moisture-free as possible. If your GABA starts to clump, rest assured that although it may be more difficult to scoop but it will still work just as well.
Unfortunately, we do not have samples of GABA available. You can view our sample range here (https://www.vpa.com.au/category/sample-packs)
We sell 200g GABA in plastic bottles.
