Natural Gamma Amino Butyric Acid


GABA is known as the “neurotransmitter of peace,” and helps the central nervous system (CNS) relax for sleep by quieting the mind and easing the waves of the brain into rest mode. Inhibition of GABA can lead to anxious thoughts, racing mind, and insomnia. PharmaGABA is a naturally occurring form of GABA produced from the decarboxylation of glutamic acid. This is similar to the GABA in kimchi. Hypnotic drugs can sometimes be effective but come with the price of side effects that typically counteract the health-promoting benefits of a good night’s sleep.

GABA is a neurotransmitter that helps the body transition from the busy, wakeful state of consciousness into NREM and then deep REM sleep, crucial for cellular rejuvenation and hormone balance. GABA not only helps regulate sleep, but can offset sleep-resistant effects stemming from stress, anxiety, disease, and caffeine. Some associate GABA release with alcohol consumption before bed, though this is very temporary and actually leads to long-term sleep issues rather than actually helping with sleep. L-Theanine, another sleep-supporting ingredient Cymbiotika utilizes, shows an increase in serotonin and dopamine in combination with GABA to bring an overall sense of peace, happiness, and harmony to the mind.

PharmaGABA is found in Cymbiotika’s Rumi Herbal Sleep Tonic to help the mind ease naturally into relaxation, sleep, and stay asleep during the night. Our goal is to replenish the body and restore the natural cycle of sleep, the most important factor contributing to overall health. Our Rumi formula works to help the body relax, balance the nutrients of the brain, and support a natural sleep cycle without sedation.
