B-Phenylethylamine HCI

B-Phenylethylamine HCL is a chemical which is related to the well known family of amphetamines and is thought to raise blood pressure and blood glucose levels. Since the two primary actions of Beta Phenylethylamine HCL is to raise sugar levels and the blood pressure, on taking Beta Phenylethylamine HCL one experiences a sense of well being and contentment as well as being more alert. Beta Phenylethylamine HCL also helps to focus the mood and concentration.


Found in chocolate.  Giving twice the stimulant effect of caffeine. Works as an amphetamine.

Phenylethylamine HCL acts to increase dopamine levels within the brain as well as block the action of dopamine transmitters. This dual action effect causes a large build up of dopamine within the brain if exposure beyond the blood brain barrier is not terminated or otherwise controlled. Those with attention deficit disorder have been found to have lowered dopamine levels while patients with schizophrenia have been shown to have elevated dopamine levels. This fact reaffirms the severe effect of phenylethylamine HCL beyond the blood brain barrier on human biochemistry.  A five- to 15-minute half life is all that is usually observed within human beings as phenylethylamine HCL is very quickly metabolized in the body.


The basic form of phenylethylamine HCL can be derived naturally from dietary sources such as chocolate, however food sources such as this are metabolized too quickly to significantly affect the chemistry of the body. As a dietary supplement, Phenylethylamine is a monoamine alkaloid that works in the human brain either as a neuromodulator [a substance other than a neurotransmitter, conveying information that is released from a neuron at a synapse over a region of neurons] or a neurotransmitter [the brains chemicals that amplify, relay, and modulate electrical signals between a neuron and another cell].


Monoamine Alkaloid:  An alkaloid that contains one amino group connected to an aromatic ring by a two-carbon chain. All monoamines are derived from aromatic amino acids.

Side effects include:  Nausea, dehydration, constipation, sleep complications, and cardiovascular issues.
