Phenibut (less commonly known as fenibut or phenybut) is a natural derivative of GABA. GABA is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. Phenibut is very effective at crossing the blood-brain barrier and binding to GABA receptors. This way Phenibut is able to reduce over-sensitivity of neurons to different neurochemical messages sent between areas of the brain. By being selective to only important messages unnecessary overstimulation is prevented. Phenibut reduces the rate of firing of hyperactive neurons to ensure a calming effect in the brain and around the body. For example, anxiety is caused by hyperactivity of the neurons, thus Phenibut plays a very important role in preventing this from happening.
Due to its effectiveness Phenibut is the best nootropic in the anxiolytic category. It is used to relieve tension, anxiety and fear. Phenibut is a well-known anxiolytic agent in Russia, but it is not registered medication in Western countries. In Russia it is used to treat various conditions including insomnia, anxiety, depression and posttraumatic stress disorder.
In addition, Phenibut serves as a cognitive enhancing (nootropic) and sleep-inducing (hypnotic) agent. Some people take Phenibut as a sedative, and find that it is much easier to fall asleep. The compound also improves a quality of sleep, thus allowing users to wake up feeling more refreshed.
Overall, Phenibut is a nutraceutical compound with one of the largest range of benefits (i.e., anxiolytic, nootropic and neuroprotective).
Phenibut is known for having its GABA molecule attached to a Phenyl ring. This attachment helps Phenibut cross the blood-brain barrier more effectively. After crossing the blood-brain barrier, Phenibut binds to GABA (B) receptors and exerts a GABAergic effect. This way it makes alterations within nervous system. Phenibut acts as GABA-A/B receptors agonist. Phenibut also stimulates dopamine receptors and antagonises beta-phenethylamine (PEA). Phenibut becomes active 1 hour after ingestion and stays effective for around 5-8 hours.
The recommended daily dosage is between 250 – 750 mg taken in 1-3 even doses. It is important to note that if you are a new user of nootropics you should begin with a lower dose and test its effectiveness.
When taken in lower doses, Phenibut is a safe nootropic. However, a prolonged use of Phenibut can develop tolerance and unwanted side effects, such as pain and numbness in limbs and drowsiness. Although, exceptionally rare there have been a few reported cases when patients developed signs and symptoms of Phenibut withdrawal. This was largely associated with very high dosages taken on a regular basis. Therefore Phenibut should not be taken more than 3 times a week as this would help to maintain an ‘on and off’ cycle without developing tolerance to it.
