Phenibut for Sleep
More about Phenibut
Phenibut stands for β-Phenyl-γ-aminobutyric acid, which is derived from an inhibitory neurotransmitter named gamma aminobutyric acid or GABA. Phenibut is usually sold as a food supplement. These provide nootropic effects, i.e.; they act as cognitive enhancers. The usage of Phenibut for increased REM sleep is most common; however, other cases where Phenibut can be used are for individuals suffering from anxiety, stress, fear, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, irregular heartbeat, and alcoholism. Furthermore, it is very effective in improving cognitive skills such as thinking, learning and memorizing.
Basically, Phenibut has similar effects as that of GABA and according to recent researches, Phenibut produces a calming effect on individuals and helps release them from anxiety; however, there is no such evidence, which can show that Phenibut can be used pharmaceutically. Although GABA and Phenibut have more or less the same functions, Phenibut has very fewer side effects and is not prone to being dependent upon. Generally, people have a tendency to get addicted to GABA supplements, which is not so in case of Phenibut. Furthermore, Phenibut can penetrate the blood-brain barrier faster than GABA.
Phenibut is known for producing anxiolytic effects on individuals who consume it. The main benefit of it is that it has sleep inducing properties and hence use of Phenibut for increased REM sleep is commonly known. The intake of Phenibut capsules makes people feel happy and hence help the patients suffering from PTSD and depression, recover from their condition. Like other important cognitive stimulators, Phenibut proves to be very much beneficial to people who are body builders as during a deep REM sleep, the growth of muscles and the secretion of hormones are high and hence, recovery of the muscles takes place. Furthermore, it has been noticed, that after doses of Phenibut are given to individuals, their reaction time for responding to any stimuli becomes very small, i.e. they become more active with increased observation skills. Also, these stimulate dopamine at low levels and hence make the individual feel happy. These are the main benefits of Phenibut.
Review – Personal experiences
Users have reported that they felt happy suddenly after the intake of Phenibut capsule; they felt calmer and enjoyed an undisturbed night’s sleep. Furthermore, they have reported how they felt more energetic and capable of more brain work after intake of those pills.
Although the starting dose is from 250 grams, usually doses of Phenibut depend on various factors such as age, the body-mass index, gender, ethnicity, and health history. With these factors kept in mind, patients suffering from insomnia, PTSD, depression, and anxiety are prescribed with the correct dosage. But, it is advised that before the intake of any such capsule, it is important that the capsules are tested on the individual first, as different people have different reactions towards supplements.
The most important side effect of these supplements is that they are stress relieving and REM sleep improving capsules. After the dosages are stopped, your sleep will not be as improved as if you were on them, and the more frequently you take Phenibut, the more you will have to increase the dosage on a regular basis. Because it is a GABAnergic inhibotor, Phenibut capsules will in fact build up tolerance if used on a regular basis, so for best results, use them sparingly, like when stacked with a stimulant to take the edge off, or to improve the quality of your sleep cycle, ie: your REM sleep. While Phenibut Withdrawal does not really occur, tolerance is something that certainly does.
