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.

First, I want to start off by saying how incredibly in awe I am with ND. This is by far one of the most legit, honest, and amazing quality brands on the market I’ve ever experienced. First off, the shipping was SO FAST. From Arizona to Virginia, it only took 2 and a half days to get here which is incredible to me considering the distance it is between us. Secondly, the product is SUPERB. I really cannot say enough great things about this product and this company. I will be a customer for life. Kayla Griffith on 14th Oct 2017
Phenibut through ND has been extremely helpful in my journey through depression and personal happiness. I find that I am able to exercise more, be more sociable, etc. etc. I would like to note though, this supplement is NOT for people prone to abuse. It requires dedication and strict personal regimen. If you have issues with addiction, be very careful with this supplement. It can cause the body to have extreme withdrawals if not used correctly and within the advised amounts. If you are good about exercise and also maintaining a healthy balance in your life, this is a great supplement and can help in your journey of life... Devin on 11th Oct 2017
...But it really didn't work out so well for me... I don't know if it is because I take a separate medication, or if this stuff just didn't work right for me or what... But it made me incredibly dizzy and nauseous. I actually didn't get any of the intended "effects" or positive benefits from it at all, which is leading me to believe the other medication I am currently on has something to do with this not working for me.
I ended up taking 1G of this stuff my first time (after an allergy tester dose), and felt almost nothing, just really dizzy. Three days later, I tried again with 1.75G which made me so awfully sick, I had to call out of work two days in a row because of how long it lasted. I was vomiting non-stop throughout the night and every time I would move my head I would get so dizzy and begin to vomit again... Could only find some relief in a hot shower. This could also be because I have had a history of a severely weak stomach.
My friend, however, really liked this stuff. He is wanting to get more and try again. Because of the effects I saw in my friend, I will give an honest 4 star rating. Minus one star mainly because not only did it not work for me, but it made me incredibly sick. Do NOT take this if you are even questioning that another medicine you are taking /might/ interact negatively with this. Great, pure product that works exactly as intended, but it's just not for me.

Seems like with your product I was able to take a much smaller dose than I typically would with other vendors, so I liked that, also it didn't seem to make me as lethargic and drowsy as some of the product from other vendors.
Great job guys,

I ordered a 25 gram tub a few months ago and did some with a friend on a day off. It felt great and had a really strong effect when mixed with alcohol, falling all over, positive mood, super relaxed etc. I had read that it was rather addictive so we ended up doing the whole tub to stop dosing multiple days in a row. I dosed probably 5x throughout the day (roughly 15 grams) and learned a valuable lesson, never do multiple doses of this substance in a day! You will have the worst withdrawals you can imagine.
I couldn't sleep properly for 3 or 4 days, my body and brain felt exhausted but I would just lay there for hours on end unable to sleep. I would get 30 minute small naps and wake up having crazy night terrors or bizarre things like feeling like I shit my pants but when I would look there was nothing there.
This being said I ordered another tub of it and have used the product responsibly, having a roughly 5 gram dose each time and limiting my use to once or twice a month on days where I feel I really need the potent rest and anti anxiety qualities it provides.
The product works very well and does everything it is advertised as and I would highly recommend the product to those suffering from anxiety or sleep problems.
Just please use the product responsibly! Alex on 30th Sep 2017
I have used 1.5g every day five days a week for many months now and I have not experienced any withdrawal on the off days of diminished effects on the five continuous days. Unknown on 27th Sep 2017
Powerful product that does just what I need it to! Thanks ND Tobias Farnese on 25th Sep 2017
If you're looking to try this supplement you should be warned that while it is extremely effective it is also a double edged sword. You can't expect to take this everyday and achieve the same level of anxiolytic effects that you experienced on day one. This supplement should be used weekly at around 1 gram to 2 grams at most. Anymore than that and you're asking for trouble.
I would recommend getting fasoracetam in conjunction with this. Do your research and find as many resources as you can on safe usage.
