A specially formulated Medical Food, consisting of a proprietary formulation of amino acids and polyphenol ingredients in specific proportions, for the nutritional management of the altered metabolic processes of sleep disorders (SD).How Can GABAdone Help?GABAdone provides the tools required by your body to fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. GABAdone addresses the increased metabolic requirements of sleep disorders and anxiety through a nutritional pathway, addressing specic amino aciddeficiencies using a patented ingredient technology.

The formulation consists of nonessential and essential amino acids Choline Bitartrate, Gamma Aminobutyric Acid, Cocoa Extract, LGlutamic Acid, Whey Protein Isolate (Milk), Griffonia Extract, Valerian Root, Acetyl L-Carnitine HCL, Ginkgo Biloba, and Grape Seed Extract in specific proportions. These ingredients fall into the category of “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) as defined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (Sections 201(s) and 409 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act).
A GRAS substance is distinguished from a food additive on the basis of the common knowledge about the safety of the substance for its intended use. The standard for an ingredient to achieve GRAS status requires not only technical demonstration of non-toxicity and safety, but also general recognition of safety through widespread usage and agreement of that safety by experts in the field. Many ingredients have been determined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be GRAS, and are listed as such by regulation, in Volume 21 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Sections 182, 184, and 186. Amino Acids Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. All amino acids are GRAS listed as they have been ingested by humans for thousands of years. The doses of the amino acids in GABAdone are equivalent to those found in the usual human diet; however the formulation uses specific ratios of the key ingredients to elicit a therapeutic response. Tryptophan, for example, is an essential amino acid. The body cannot make tryptophan and must obtain tryptophan from the diet. Tryptophan is needed to produce serotonin. Serotonin is required to induce sleep. Patients with sleep disorders have altered serotonin metabolism. Some patients with sleep disorders have a resistance to the use of tryptophan that is similar to the mechanism found in insulin resistance. Patients with sleep disorders cannot acquire sufficient tryptophan from the diet to establish normal sleep architecture without ingesting a prohibitively large amount of calories, particularly calories from protein.Other Ingredients GABAdone contains the following inactive or other ingredients, as fillers, excipients, and colorings: Gelatin, vegetable magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, lac-resin, carmine. Physical Description GABAdone is a yellow to light brown powder encapsulated in a clear, dye-free capsule.
