    Hi again everyone,

    I am trying hard to reduce my sleeping pills and tranquillisers as per doctor instructions but am finding it very difficult.

    I was wondering if Gaba with theanine (sold here) crosses the blood-brain barrier and therefore might help with the jitteriness and insomnia.

    Can anyone advise?

    Thanks Bunchy x

    with out the drowsiness. I couldn't handle Xanax. The neurologist must have been nuts to ask me to take it at work: I snored for 2 hours per my coworkers. I apologized to the boss, he just laughed.

    To sleep, I eat honey-roasted cashews. High in tryptophan with goes to serotonin. 5HTP also helps me. Valerian root, Kava-kava and chamomile are my back up herbs.

    Many meds and alcohol disrupt the sleep cycle per the NSF (national sleep foundation).

    Theanine helps GABA cross the blood-brain-barrier. Both are natural products.
