Quick Overview:

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is produced by neurons in the brain, and functions as the principle inhibitory neurotransmitter. GABA is associated with the parasympathetic side of the autonomic nervous system, which balances the sympathetic (fight-or-flight) response. Lower concentrations of GABA have been observed in major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder in the brain, and a region of the brain known as the insular cortex that is associated with emotional response.* Lower insula levels of GABA are associated with significantly higher trait and state anxiety.* GABA, as an inhibitory neurotransmitter, is one of the mediators responsible for reducing the response to fear or anxiety-provoking stimuli.*

L-theanine is an amino acid found at high amounts in green tea. L-theanine supports relaxation and mood by increasing alpha-wave activity, and levels of serotonin, dopamine, and GABA in the brain.* L-theanine also has been shown to block binding of L-glutamic acid to excitatory glutamate receptors in the brain.* Glutamate receptor subtypes have been shown to modulate excitability associated with anxiety, while in depression, a hyperfunctioning glutaminergic system also may be an issue.* Continuous administration of L-theanine has been shown to increase expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) protein, a protein which plays a role in neural plasticity and neurogenesis.*

Liposomal GABA with L-Theanine brings you a highly absorbable form of GABA partnered with L-theanine for optimal parasympathetic support.*

Conventional oral forms of GABA do not easily cross the blood-brain barrier, however small liposomal delivery vesicles, such as those utilized by Quicksilver Scientific, have demonstrated this ability, producing a quick and powerful effect.*

Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ optimizes the bioavailability of GABA and L-theanine with this liposomal format. The phospholipids delivered with GABA and L-theanine nourish the membranes of the cells, ensuring proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.*

Consult healthcare professional prior to taking this product if pregnant or breastfeeding.


May be stored at room temperature. Keep out of direct sunlight.

GABA with L-Theanine

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is produced by neurons in the brain, and functions as the principle inhibitory neurotransmitter.1 GABA is associated with the parasympathetic side of the autonomic nervous system, which balances the sympathetic (fight-or-flight) response. Many pharmacological agents exert anxiolytic, analgesic, anticonvulsant and sedative effects by modulating GABA receptor activity or increasing GABA availability.2,3 L-theanine is an amino acid found at high amounts in green tea. L-theanine may support relaxation and mood by increasing alpha-wave activity, brain serotonin, dopamine, and GABA levels, and by blocking the binding of L-glutamic acid to excitatory glutamate receptors in the central nervous system.4,5


Quicksilver's Delivery Systems™ GABA with L-Theanine brings you a highly absorbable form of GABA partnered with L-Theanine for optimal parasympathetic support. Conventional oral forms of GABA do not easily cross the blood-brain barrier.6 however the small liposomal delivery systems such as those utilized by Quicksilver Scientific have demonstrated this ability, producing a quick and powerful effect.

Quicksilver's Delivery Systems™ Phospholipid Encapsulation System brings the power of intravenous therapy into a convenient oral delivery. Our Quicksilver Delivery Systems™ improves upon liposomal technology with smaller, more stable, single-layer spheres made from the highest-grade ingredients available. In addition to exceptional absorption rates, nanospheres like the ones produced by Quicksilver Scientific have demonstrated the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, deposit their cargo intracellularly and enhance lymphatic circulation of nutrients.7,8 Also, the phospholipids that compose the liposome shell feed the cell membranes;9 this helps ensure the proper function for the absorption of nutrients and the excretion of cellular waste products and toxins.


Production Technology Features:
  • Tightly controlled small sizing, verified by Laser Dynamic Light Scattering on each batch (particle mean size 50-100nm)
  • Pleasant taste, suitable for intra-buccal delivery for best systemic availability
  • May be dispersed in water or other liquid when desired
  • Easy to dispense with precise pump delivery
