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 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 used a few brands and this one is by far superior. I use it for anxiety and insomnia, and it works well, without hangover effects. Unknown on 26th Apr 2017
I've used Phenibut from Nootropics Depot exclusively and it has 100% met my expectations. I used it for meeting new people and a job interview which went very well. Zach on 24th Apr 2017
I take at most once every 3 days to avoid dependence and tolerance. Offers 6-8 hours of serene focus with a mood lift, increased music appreciation, and seemingly brighter colors. Potentials well with cannabis. Unknown on 20th Apr 2017
awesome product. Did extenwive research before messing with this stuff, and not just on google. Bottom line this is a gift from God to me. Do not use more than 1-2 times a week, if you do, you will suffer major consequences. Unknown on 19th Apr 2017
Good quality phenibut. I've tried multiple brands throughout the year and this one is top three. The only reason I've given it 4 stars is because it seems to take an extra .25-.5 grams more than other brands to get me where I want to be. Considering the price, that really isn't a big deal.
Overall, great product and I would recommend. Jake on 18th Apr 2017
Everything that I've read about phenibut proved to be true. Super social with no anxiety, like mdma without the high. Only use occasionally though. ck on 17th Apr 2017
I have been taking phenibut for a long time and it am confident to say that it is great quality. In addition not many companies package the way they package it at nootrpicsdepot, really happy with the product and quick delivery considering i live in the uk. I will definitely will be ordering more from nootropicsdepot in the future, it is cheaper than buying locally in the uk! Alexis on 16th Apr 2017

Simply put, this stuff is AMAZING. A bit annoying to take as I get no effects if I take it within 5 hours of food before or after, but if I take it right, it's just fantastic. I will be using this for job interviews and on social occasions. I'm usually shy and stuck in my head, but this just just opens me right up, and not in a bad way. It's the perfect feeling. I also take it with Tianeptine Sulfate, beautiful combo.
(I hope they restock it soon, want to stock up on it in case anything happens!) Unknown on 13th Mar 2017
