PharmaGABA® is a patented form of GABA that is produced through a fermentation process using Lactobacillus hilgardii, a natural bacteria found in the human gut. Synthetic GABA, on the other hand, is a chemically derived form of GABA that is produced in a laboratory. The main difference between the two is that PharmaGABA® is considered a natural form of GABA, while synthetic GABA is a man-made chemical. Some studies have shown that PharmaGABA® may be more effective at crossing the blood-brain barrier and exerting its effects in the brain.
