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 ordered this product hoping that I could find something to alleviate some of my social anxiety. Boy did I get lucky. Aside from the 2-3 hours it takes to feel noticeable effects, it was perfect at what I needed it for.
There is a slight nausea feeling the next day, and taking too much will make you sick.
Perhaps next time a measurement scoop would be nice. As the threshold dose is very low.
Overall, good product though! And will be ordering again. Murphy on 15th Dec 2017
I did expect a bit better quality. However, for the price you can't really be upset. Overall I think it's fine. Great for a night out on the town. Andrew on 14th Dec 2017
Great product overall i was expecting a little more out of it bit maybe my expectations where to high. Deffently enjoy this product and will come back for more when I run low. Unknown on 14th Dec 2017
Going to make it short and quick /// I was diagnosed with social anxiety at age 19. It's a bump in the road but something I'm working on. I've read how phenibut does wonders for many. So I purchased and this is my review...
This product makes you feel very happy and confident. Very productive and full of energy during the day. Very talkative, a bit too talkative at times you have to catch yourself. Very outgoing. No care in the world about what others think.
I take this twice a week strictly for work purposes. Tuesdays and Fridays are my hardest days at work, lots of coworkers working on those days and a lot of physical work. Phenibut helps me have conversations and get through work with ease. Wish I could take it everyday but you must not abuse this product. I took it for 3 days straight 1.5g and had severe anxiety and panic attacks. Don't do it. It's humiliating. The taste is also horrible, I grab a shot glass and put 1/4 of water in the small glass with the phenibut. I take it like I would any other shot. Amazing product. Don't abuse. Irie on 14th Dec 2017
Best brand of phenibut I've ever tried. Will order again Unknown on 13th Dec 2017
But since I didn't use as directed the withdrawal symptoms will keep me away from this. Mike on 13th Dec 2017
I bought the smallest size of the Phenibut HCl for myself to try out and it definitely yields great results! Although I purchased the smallest size over a month ago, there still is a fair amount left so you can't go wrong for the amount to price ratio. The only qualm I have is that there is no possible way to measure out how much you want to use. However, this may only be with the smaller sized products.
Regardless, it is a product I would recommend. Owen on 13th Dec 2017
Great product but you need to be careful. A roommate of mine took way too much without knowing and ended up in the hospital. It was obviously his fault and I am not blaming anyone here but just be sure your taking a low dose your first time. My only criticism is a scoop with an accurate dosage should be included. Unknown on 11th Dec 2017
I recently bought this product (I've bought it in the past with great effect). But this time something was different. When taken I didn't feel any of the typical anti anxiety effects I loved before. This time all I got was a spike in blood pressure. I've taken phenibut on and off for 2 years (always allowing enough time between doses to not become dependant) but this last purchase had no positive effect.
May have been a bad batch.
ND Admin: We do not sell bad batches. We extensively test all products before sale. In fact, I personally used the latest batch of phenibut last week with great effects. It was the first time in over a year that I had used phenibut again, and the effects were as expected and potent. Phenibut is one compound that can have variable effects, based on what else is in your system at the time, and other factors. Chris on 11th Dec 2017
If you are shy around people this can really help. It puts me in a good mood all day long. It makes me talkative, happy & relaxed, kinda like being buzzed on alcohol without the sloppiness or a hangover. If you have an addictive personality be carefull, it can be habit forming so as always, moderation is key! MJ on 9th Dec 2017
