Is this supposed to be a substitute for Kavinace Ultra PM?
We went with just the simplest formulation which means only the primary active ingredient, phenibut for BetterPhen. You can add other products as needed like melatonin, taurine, valerian etc. We find that different people need different formulations and this can vary for the same person from week to week. So this way you can fine tune what you are using for sleep. Right now my husband's favorite (sleeping problems since about 3rd grade) is Metagenics Serenagen, BetterPhen, Karuna Sleep with occasional use of 5-HTP and/or taurine. We have also had good luck with Dee Cee Formula 303 over the years. Let us know if you have other questions.

My son use to take Kavinace before Neuroscience stopped making it. What is the difference between this and Kavinace? He is now taking Pure Encapsulations Gaba 700 mg. twice a day along with other supplements including magnesium.
I'm wondering if this would be better for him? Any help would be appreciated!
Kavinace included a few other things with the phenibut to help it work. We looked all over for a source of phenibut because it works so well for so many people. We are down to one source that comes to you via BetterPhen. We use BetterPhen at our house and mix it with other things as needed as sleep needs seems to be a moving target for many people. We can add some PEA, taurine, valerian or other things depending on the day. One has to experiment to see what is best. My husband, for example, will go several days with some simple sleep formulas like Karuna Sleep and maybe Dee Cee Formula 303 and then hit a wall where it has to be BetterPhen with other things like the valerian in Karuna Sleep and/or Metagenics Serenagen. I wish this were easy and I could tell everyone the same thing and it would just work. In the real world, each person has to pay attention and figure what is best at the moment. We find that for many, many people phenibut is an important component for consistent sleep.
As far as GABA goes, this shouldn't work if the blood brain barrier (BBB) is healthy. This is the reason that phenibut was invented in the first place. This is a way to increase the GABA levels of the brain as it does readily cross the BBB and is then quickly converted to GABA where you need it.
Side note: if you can't find BetterPhen on the website, we have taken it off (long story) but we intend to keep it in stock for phone orders.
