Phenibut HCL Powder is a nootropic compound and derivative of the naturally occurring inhibitory neurotransmitter known as Gamma-Aminobutyric acid, or GABA. GABA is the principal inhibitory neurotransmitter in mammals, responsible for reducing excitability of neurons in the central nervous system, which means GABA is released in the brain to promote feelings of calmness. In Phenibut HCL, GABA is modified with the addition of a phenyl group to the chemical structure, allowing the compound to cross the blood-brain barrier and take effect. GABA is chemically an amino acid, although it isn’t an alpha amino acid.
Phenibut was first synthesized in Russia in the 1960s at the A.I. Herzen Leningrad Pedagogical Institute under the leadership of Professor Vsevolod Perekalin. The compound underwent testing at the Institute of Experimental Medicine, USSR Academy of Medical Sciences. Interestingly, it has even been included in kits for Russian cosmonauts to reduce stress without causing drowsiness.
Phenibut HCL is a bit different than your typical nootropic compound. Although some anecdotal evidence shows potential for improved cognition, most people buy Phenibut HCL as it may provide mood support. Some Phenibut HCL benefits that many people experience include:
As a modified version of gamma-aminobutyric acid, Phenibut HCL offers many of the similar potential effects and benefits as GABA. GABA is naturally released by the brain to invoke feelings of calm and relaxation, but GABA cannot be supplemented because the compound has trouble circulating from the blood to the brain or neurons on its own. Phenibut HCL has been shown to replicate many of GABA’s effects, activating the same receptors. This may result in relaxaton and a distinct calming effect.
Along with its potential mood support, Phenibut HCL may show evidence of improving mental performance and increasing cognitive abilities. According to some clinical studies, subjects taking Phenibut HCL showed improved brain function, particularly regarding communication between brain hemispheres. This form of brain communication is often associated with improved creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving abilities. Some limited research also suggests that Phenibut HCL may support memory and learning functions. Most importantly, Phenibut HCL may help you focus and channel your efforts into productive pursuits instead of getting caught up in negative feedback loops. Part of this comes from Phenibut HCL’s potential interactions with dopamine, a neurotransmitter involved in increasing motivation and personal drive.
Phenibut HCL may also be used to improve sleep quality by providing more internal calm, peace, and tranquility. Studies show that using Phenibut HCL may make it easier to fall asleep and allow for a more restful night’s sleep, possibly preventing insomnia and other sleep disorders. Accommodating good sleep has its own rewards for cognitive health. Studies show that Phenibut HCL may be effective in increasing REM sleep. While REM sleep is best known as the dream stage, it also plays a vital role in memory consolidation, learning, and maintaining basic functions throughout the brain and body. By extension, Phenibut HCL’s potential to provide sleep support may mean overall better cognitive performance across a wide variety of metrics.
Phenibut HCL’s potential anti-stress abilities may also make it an effective neuroprotection alternative. Research has shown that Phenibut HCL may prevent damage to neurons caused by high levels of stress hormones.

I've ordered Phenibut from NootropicsDepot twice now, and the quality has been awesome in both cases. I personally don't suffer from anxiety or stress so I don't see much nootropic use, but I can confirm that it works perfectly. R on 17th Mar 2018
It works for my buddy, but I tried this 3x and I didn't feel anything. I didn't want to use 5gs or anything, but I thought I'd feel something, trying 3x.
I ended up giving it away. A total waste of $50. tehpickljar on 16th Mar 2018
Excellent quality product. Wish it came with dosing spoon cindy on 16th Mar 2018
I've been very satisfied with Nootropics Depot. They're products are always high quality! Phenibut is extremely powerful [USE CAUTION]. It's easy to overshoot your dose which can be quite unpleasant. The drug itself can be tricky, but this vender does a great job with quality. Nevin Bitner on 15th Mar 2018
pretty good Unknown on 14th Mar 2018
Helped me deal with my anxiety. Even after taking a break from it. Makes me feel at ease and "normal". Make sure to do your research before taking Unknown on 13th Mar 2018
I’ve ordered phenibut from a few websites, but this is the best I’ve found. I’ve even had to lower to dosages I take because it’s definitely stronger than the phenibut I’ve ordered in the past. Highly recommend. Just be careful! As with all phenibut, this stuff is highly addictive and shouldn’t be taken even 2 days in a row. Unknown on 10th Mar 2018
I bought the penibut only because I was buying racetam sample pack. I was unsure while it was in transit but having read about it I can see its something yhat has its place, legit place, but also has potential pitfall & some things I read were scary indeed.
I've put it to 1 side untouched & will exercise caution w/ phenibut from 1st time Unknown on 10th Mar 2018
I purchased this product to help with my social anxiety and am feeling grateful.
The product arrived on time and was as described.
After testing it out at a recommended dose of 500mg I noticed it drastically reduced my overall anxiety and increased my sociability. This was great news as I often find myself over analyzing most situations.
I can only hope that anyone looking for something similar will follow the guidelines and treat these nootropics with respect as I believe they can help out many more!
I'm so thankful and eager to try out more of your great nootropics!

I found phenibut to be helpful with task initiative/motivation, and that's about all I've found thus far. It performs moderately in this aspect. But considering there are few/no other nootropics out there which offer this benefit, I would give this product a generous 4/5 stars.
Higher doses of phenibut may be deleterious to memory and lead to great disinhibition. Be mindful when finding your optimum dose. Unknown on 5th Mar 2018
