Hmmmm interesting. Funny you mention it because I was taking gaba not too long ago and it was in a mixture with some other stuff. Anyways, I think it was causing me to wake up kind of uncoordinated and feeling just kind of weird. Dissociative I guess you could say, which makes sense because it’s related to the NMDA receptors somehow I think. It supposedly “can’t” cross the blood brain barrier, at least this is repeated despite the fact that it can and does, it’s just an unreliable mechanism in which it does. Low levels of gaba were insinuated to absorb more in the brain also. I didn’t have this issue as if I took the full 750 mg I felt very strange consistently and none of the other supplements in the mixture would seem to do this.
Mark, according to https:///watch?v=sRIh0n2X97g the alcohol in tinctures can alter the benefits sought by the herb, whereas the powder form contains the whole herb without alteration by the alcohol. That said, tinctures are good to quickly deliver the herbal medicine, say if trying to stop an asthma attack. Don’t know if Ashwagandha is better as a tincture or powder, but since you have the tincture already, use it. Suggest you also use google to see if there’s reliable info out there about which is better. I just spent 10 minutes doing so and found nothing conclusive. I use the powder and will stick w/ it unless I bump into info suggesting otherwise.
