Phenibut HCL Powder

  • Product Description

    What Is Phenibut HCL Powder?

    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.

    History Behind Phenibut

    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.

    What Are Phenibut HCL Uses?

    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:

    • Calmness* - decreased stress and worrisome thoughts
    • Restfulness* - improved, restful sleep
    • Confidence* - decreased feelings of shyness and social inhibition, more confidence on dates, at parties, and in public situations in general

    Phenibut HCL Benefits

    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.

    1. extremely affordable and realiable product

      I read quite a bit on phenibut before purchasing it here. I originally intended to use it as an sleep aid but quit my intention due to addiction potential. I use it 1 time per week in average when I have an extraordinarily demanding day in front of me- works as a charm for that! Quality of this product is indisputable, disolves in water in a microsecond, is awfully cheap and works for hours and hours and hours which is nice as I don’t get the sudden comedown effect and desire to ‘use’ more. Great product but use with caution on 5th Mar 2018

    2. Good Product

      Phenibut has helped me with a variety of ailments, from muscle pain to insomnia. Apparently it also causes dopamine release, so I always wake up in a good mood after I take it at night. A word of caution though- don't take in too high of dosages or for extended periods of time without breaks. Tolerance builds quickly. But used responsibly, it's a great nootropic. on 5th Mar 2018

    3. Almost everyday!

      I'd take it everyday if I could but doing so creates a chemical dependency. So I take it during the work week and don't on the weekends. The anxiolitic nature of this nootropic combined with caffiene is a powerful and unfair advantage in the workplace and I seem to outperform my colleagues cognitively as well. Stacking this with Noopept is a powerhouse of focus. Nootropics depot sent this in a timely manner, in great packaging and seems to be of fantastic quality and consistently. I recommend it to people everyday. on 3rd Mar 2018

    4. Amazing

      I have really bad Ptsd, and I have been using Phenibut for 3 years now and it has helped me way more than anything from the VA. on 2nd Mar 2018


      One of the best anxiolytics out there. Good quality and fast shipping from nootropicsdepot as well. on 1st Mar 2018

    6. It definitely works

      I enjoy this product, worked better than I anticipated to be completely honest. Nice mellow relaxation with out drowsiness, music seems to better while on this also. I'v tried the hcl from liftmode and it's the same quality in my opinion. on 26th Feb 2018

    7. Great Product

      Everything with the actual product has been great! I just wish it came with a small scoop. on 26th Feb 2018
