While Gabatrol’s website is actually pretty straightforward and informative, its outlandish claims actually put us off a bit. The makers of Gabatrol claim it is a natural version of Xanax and will provide relief in under 30 minutes. After looking at the ingredients, we didn’t really see anything incredible enough to provide such immediate effects. Also the price is a bit steep, so overall we remained a bit sceptical of the authenticity of Gabatrol’s claims.
Manufacturer and website:
Gabatrol is manufactured by a company called Pure Life based out of Darlen, Connecticut, the US. The founder has a master’s degree focusing on nutrition and claims to have formulated several nutritional supplements over the past twenty years (although we couldn’t find his other formulas).
Gabatrol’s website is pretty basic and simply alright. There is a stock photo of a joyful and relieved looking woman at the top of the page, with a statement saying “Feel your stress, anxiety and negative emotions melt in under 30 minutes…guaranteed!”. Either this is a very lofty promise, or this supplement may actually work. On top of all that, the makers of Gabatrol claim it is a ‘natural xanax’. While xanax is a pretty popular drug for people to take to relieve their anxiety, we’re not really sure we’re looking for a copycat.
Scrolling down the first page, we saw an endorsement by a pretty famous author in the US and other positive reviews. There were even tabs taking us to more testimonials, FAQs, and a section explaining how each of Gabatrol’s ingredients work. Also, it was pretty easy to figure out how to order Gabatrol, and the number for customer assistance was clearly displayed.
Yet we couldn’t help but to feel a little suspicious. We’re pretty sure it was the stock photo and the unreasonable claim of 30 minutes, so we definitely wanted to check out the ingredients before making any decision.
Again, it was pretty easy to find out the supplement facts of Gabatrol, although there’s a snag. Pure Life calls Gabatrol a ‘Unique Proprietary Matrix’ and doesn’t give the exact amount of their ingredients. Overall, there are 455 mg of the following:
- Phenyl-GABA, otherwise known as phenibut, is a neuropsychotropic drug originally produced in Russia and has cognition enhancing effects. It mimics GABAs, meaning it calms down neurotransmitters in our nervous systems, and it stimulates dopamine receptors resulting in a calming effect.
- L-Theanine is most often found in teas, especially green tea, and is known to promote relaxation and improve sleep.
- L-tyrosine is an amino acid used to promote cognitive function and relieve stress through its production of noradrenaline and dopamine. It is also thought to prevent stress-related memory problems.
- L-Glycine is an amino acid involved in the process of transmitting signals in the brain. It is believed that glycine may reduce the symptoms of certain mental disorders and also improve memory production and retention.
- Taurine is an antioxidant and supports neurological development by regulating the levels of chemicals in our blood. It is also thought to enhance concentration when combined with caffeine and as a result it is found in several popular energy drinks.
- Sceletium tortuosum is used in South Africa to enhance mood
- Bioperine increases the absorption of nutrients in your body.
One dose is 3-4 capsules and there are 90 capsules per container. If you about 3 capsules a day, one bottle will last you a month.
Pure Life sells Gabatrol through Amazon, and a 90 capsule bottle costs a little under $50 (USD). For us, this is a bit too much to spend. Obviously if it really provides the relief it claims it does, then hey Gabatrol may just be worth it. We tried to find Gabatrol sold through another store, but every website redirected us to Amazon.
Most of the reviews on Amazon were positive, although many of them seemed like fake reviews.
Pure Life created a pretty clean and easy to understand website for Gabatrol. The only thing that worries us is its fantastic claims of Gabatrol being a natural xanax and it providing relief in under 30 minutes. We looked at the ingredients but we’re still confused as to what could provide such quick relief. Gabatrol is sold online through Amazon and while most reviews were positive, many seemed pretty fake. Also the price is a bit high. So if you’re really curious and willing to risk it, then go ahead and give Gabatrol a try. It may just work for you.
