Nootropics-All on Phenibut as a Nootropic
You probably have heard of Phenibut and the Phenibut High but still don’t quite know what these are anyway. Generally speaking, the drug Phenibut has been rather popular in countries some of which are Latvia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Russia. Generally, where this particular drug has found a foothold as have been mentioned above, it has been used as an anti-anxiety medication and has been as effective in helping treat such conditions as stress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), alcoholism, irregular heartbeat and depression.
There are other names that these drugs go by in such countries where they happen to be so popular and legally recommended for dispensing and these are such as Noofen, Anvifen and Fenibut to mention but a few names. By and large, this drug is not medically approved in the United States but it is all the same still available through online stores where it is dispensed as a nootropic or drugs that help boost memory and cognitive function. Here under is a look at some of the basic facts one should have on fingertips when it comes to this drug Phenibut.
First and foremost, we will take a look at how Phenibut actually works. In the human brain there is found the chemical naturally found known as gamma-aminobutyric acid which basically clams the nervous system. The workings of Phenibut basically take after the working of this chemical. Generally, the drug Phenibut is but a chemically modified version of GABA in which case it happens to be coming with an extra phenyl ring. It is this extra ring that actually allows this drug to cross the blood-brain barrier and get to attach to the GABA receptors in the brain. When these happen to have attached to the GABA receptors, they get to tone down sensitivity of the neurons and lessen anxiety and as well overstimulation.
Apart from the GABA receptors, Phenibut can as well bind to the dopamine receptors, the mood controlling neurotransmitters there are in the brain. Therefore in this way we see this being one other kind of drug that can be used to increase one’s sense of pleasure, boost moods and increase your level of motivation.
When it comes to the side effects, it is a fact that not much has been researched as to be noted in so far as well researched and established side effects would be concerned. In as much as this is the case, one thing that should be noted when it comes to these drugs is that studies have as well shown that there would always be a general trend towards developing of tolerance to the drug more so as a result of heavy or chronic use.
