We suggest taking GABA between meals because certain proteins and amino acids contained in foods can compete with GABA for absorption and reduce the efficacy of the product when taken with food. While it is best to take GABA on an empty stomach, if you need to eat small snacks throughout the day, you can still work GABA into your routine. It is best to try to take GABA an hour before or two hours after eating if possible. If you consume only a very small amount of food at a time, less time is necessary for the food to digest. If it is not possible for you to allow 1-2 hours before or after eating, try to use GABA first thing in the morning or last thing at night, or use between your smallest meals of the day.*
