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.
In such countries where this drug has been given the green light for use and as such a legal prescription, it has been known by its other brand names such as Noofen, Fenibut, Anvifen and many others. It may not be medically approved for use in the United States but anyway it is still available through online stores as a nootropic, the kinds of drugs that have been known to help boost memory and cognitive function. The following is a look at some of the basic facts that ought to be know of when it comes to the 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. Generally speaking of the working of this drug Phenibut, it is seen to mimic the actions of this particular chemical in the brain. Essentially, Phenibut is a but a chemically modified variation of GABA, the gamma-aminobutyric acid that has that extra phenyl ring. For the effect to be realized, the drug will have to cross the blood-brain barrier and attach to the brain’s GABA receptors and this they only achieve with the extra phenyl ring that Phenibut has. After they have so attached to the GABA receptors, they get to tone down the sensitivity of the neurons and as such lessen effects of anxiety and overstimulation.
Apart from the GABA receptors, Phenibut can as well bind to the dopamine receptors, the mood controlling neurotransmitters there are in the brain. As such Phenibut has as well been billed as a kind of drug that will get to see your moods, increase your sense of pleasure and stir up the spirits.
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.
