Mechanisms of cation of 2-Phenylethylamine Hydrochloride
- Stimulates dopamine, norepinephrine, and acetylcholine levels
- Modulates receptor sensitivity and reuptake processes
- Synthesized in the body from the amino acid phenylalanine
- Psychoactive ingredient in chocolate and blue green algae
- Synergistic with MAO-B inhibitors like Hordenine
- Phenylethylamines are a category of empathogens and entheogens derived from PEA and that act largely on its receptor sites

I use PEA-based supplements, both to augment the effects of prescription medication and as a stand-alone agent, to treat symptoms associated with various conditions:
- Brain fog (fuzzy thinking)
- Poor concentration/attention/focus

A Review of PEA
Phenylethylamine (PEA) is a hormone-like substance that occurs naturally in your brain and body. It functions as a neurotransmitter that gives you heightened focus, attention, goal-directed behavior, and task-completion. Combined with its mood elevating effects, these attributes are why supplementation with PEA can bring about increased get-up-and-go, enhanced sense of well-being, and optimal cognitive performance
