Phenylethylamine is a naturally occurring compound in the central nervous system. It is often classified as a monoamine neurotransmitter. In the brain, it interacts with various neurotransmitter systems, stimulating them to synthesize. Because of this, it is also classified as a neuromodulator. In addition, it raises blood pressure and regulates glucose levels, thereby controlling appetite. Thus, it acts as a thermogenic compound that helps reduce body fat.

The biggest benefit of using PEA is that the compounds have a positive effect on improving mood, as well as conditioning well-being. As such, it is mainly recommended for people suffering from depression, as well as those living under constant stress. In these cases, phenylethylamine is an essential support, mainly due to an increase in β-endorphin (internal morphine, a compound produced by the brain to provide bliss), dopamine (a neurotransmitter responsible for mood and energy levels and motivation to act). In addition, phenylethylamine increases blood pressure and glucose levels, thus increasing the amount of energy available to the body. Thus, it reduces the feeling of fatigue that often accompanies depression or anhedonia.

PEA has a nootropic effect, mainly because it stimulates the secretion of acetylcholine. High levels of this neurotransmitter contribute primarily to improved memory. In one study, people supplementing with phenylethylamine said they felt as if they had greater access to their memories. Improvements in learning ability and greater focus on activities were also noted among volunteers. In addition, several patients noted improved sensory perception, which was mainly in the areas of hearing and vision.


The standard recommended dose for phenylethylamine is 250 to 500 mg per day. If necessary, a higher amount can be used, but the maximum, which is 1,000 mg, should not be exceeded.

In the initial period of supplementation, it is best to start with a smaller amount (about 100 mg), and then increase the dose as needed and as the effects are felt. It is also advisable to use intervals when taking PEA.

PEA can be combined with MAO inhibitors such as selegiline and phenelzine. The dose can then be reduced significantly. However, this combination can be dangerous because of the possibility of a sudden and large increase of blood pressure.
