GABA-any use for bodybuilding?

I know some of you have tried this GABA before. Appreciate anyone for sharing their experiences/ opinion on this. Thanks

It definitely puts you out at doses around 3grams. It allegedly elevates GH higher then normal when your sleeping. I’ve taken it before, and it helps me sleep, but who knows if my GH levels were higher or not…

Han, I’m not aware of GABA being used for BB. It’s used therapeutically in the treatment of epilepsy and depression. And there are number of sedative drugs including Valium, Halcion, Tranxene, etc., that work by binding to GABA receptors in the brain which then leads to neurochemical changes which promote sedation.
