Kavinace is an amino acid approach to brain nutrition supplementation designed to assist with sleep problems, anxiousness, and stress. The description of this supplement states that it can deliver the advertised benefits by supporting optimum GABA levels, the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter. The formula offered by NeuroScience contains a derivative of this naturally occurring neurotransmitter, known as Phenibut, which can easily cross the blood-brain barrier to producing the necessary effects.

Effectiveness of Kavinace

If you have read other reviews on our website, then you will have seen our views regarding the inclusion of GABA in brain supplements. To quickly restate the problem of GABA, we want to point out that GABA does work, and is naturally produced by your brain, but artificially ingesting it only operates on the short time and fails to provide the over-advertised long term effects.

Artificial GABA can pass through the brain blood barrier and then affect your neurotransmitters, but as it is not a natural process, the effect will wear off, at which time your brain will need to build up its levels of natural GABA. To do this, many people need to take another supplement called L-Glutamine.

As such, we would agree that the supplement will calm people down, and reduce their anxiety; however, we disagree with the process used, as there is a much more natural way to reach the same state of feeling and well being.

In addition to taurine and 4-amino-3-phenylbutyric acid (commonly known as Phenibut), NeuroScience added one extra ingredient to this formula: Vitamin B6. This vitamin was added, probably, due to its property in assisting in GABA synthesis. It is important to note that Kaviance contains 5 milligrams of Vitamin B6, which is more than double the RDA of the vitamin

It is important for our readers to realize that GABA levels can be build up naturally, without assistance from various brain supplements. Artificial GABA is beneficial, but as a short-term solution only. Natural GABA can make you feel much calmer and be healthier by offering your brain the nourishment that it needs. This is done by ingesting the right neuro-nutrients and amino acids. You can find these in the ingredients of wholesome foods, but they are also found in an excellent amino acid supplement.

Kavinace Price

Kavinace is available in bottles of 60 or 120 vanilla-flavored chewable capsules. The recommended dosage is two capsules per day. Unfortunately, the Kavinace price is higher than the price for many other similar supplements, in part because of the brand under which it is manufactured.

NeuroScience does not have an official website to sell their products from. All NeuroScience supplements, Kaviance included, are available for purchase from various online retailers.


Does Kavinace Work?

If you are going to use an amino acid based supplement, then we would suggest something that does not contain artificial GABA. Don’t get us wrong. Artificial GABA might be beneficial as well, but only as a short-term solution.

While Kavinace brain supplement may be much better than many other brain supplements that we have reviewed here, we rated it down due to the artificial GABA content. On top of that, our research team was unable to find a satisfactory number of reviews or testimonials from real customers, which we consider to be another downside for this product.
