Also known as
Phenylethylamine, PEA, Beta Phenethylamine, Phenethylamine, β-phenylethylamine
Phenylethylamine is a natural monoamine alkaloid and trace amine related to dopamine which acts as a central nervous system stimulant and mood lifter, with a propensity to induce states of euphoria and infatuation. Phenylethylamine functions as a neuromodulator and neurotransmitter in the human central nervous system. It is biosynthesized from the amino acid L-phenylalanine by enzymatic decarboxylation via the enzyme aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase. In addition to its presence in mammals, phenylethylamine is found in many other organisms and foods, such as chocolate, especially after microbial fermentation.
Recommended amount per dose is 100-500 mg, or 1/5th to a full size '00' capsule.
Phenethylamine is an effective monoaminergic neuromodulator, stimulating the release of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. These systems are linked to enhanced energy levels, cognitive awareness, motivation, visual and sensory acuity, circulation, breathing, weight loss, libido, mood, and more.
Orally ingested Phenethylamine is rapidly metabolized by monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B). For significant concentrations to reach the brain, an MAO inhibitor is required, such as Curcumin, Ginkgo, Hordenine, Ho Shou Wu, Luteolin, Quercetin, Rutin, Rhodiola rosea, or Olive leaf. Hordenine and/or mixtures containing hordenine are reported to have the best results when mixed with Phenethylamine.
Contraindicated for those who have high blood pressure, bipolar disorder, mania, and hypertension. Phenethylamine should not be used daily, best being cycled with at most an equal time on as off.
Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
