People should exercise caution when using PEA. But the best I've found so far is liftmode (yellow label). Great quality product!

Increased blood pressure
Phenylethylamine (or "PEA") usually doesn't make it into the brain (i.e. doesn't pass through the brain-blood barrier), however, in combination with an MAOI such as hordenine, it causes euphoria, acts as an aphrodisiac and heightens the intimate (e.g. massage) and sexual sensitivity and pleasure. Many people compare the effects to MDMA. However, unlike this chemical, it is not know to be neurotoxic and offers another advantage: the effects end approx. 2 hours after ingesting and no one I know has every experienced a hangover or other side effects.
In order to try the experience, the hordenine must be taken approx. 20 minutes before taking the PEA to stop the PEA from being destroyed before it even reaches the brain. Therefore, by taking the hordenine first with a bit of lemon juice (the acidity helps the body absorb it and, it allows almost all of PEA to reach the brain. After then initial 20 minutes have gone by, the PEA is then consumed and within about 15-20 minutes the euphoria and heightened sensitivity begins and continues for just under 2 hours. The recommend starting dosages are 15mg of hordenine (6-7 microscopes) and 200mg PEA (about two 1/8 teaspoons).. This low dose is unlikely to cause Euphoria in everyone. Indeed I have read that these dosages a even tripled to provide more intense results. The cheapest source I've found so far with good turnaround (2 day shipping available at a nominal amount) is at Liftmode.com.

got the PEA in mail... took 1.5 grams= nothing, no stimulation/euphoria
started taking cats claw to inhibit MAO-B systems for about a week..
during the week i took 2.5 grams = nothing good, a bit stimulated, tingly but not "high" or euphoric.
decided i needed to up the anty tonight (saturday)

I took 2.5 grams 5 500mg caps with coffee and 3 more cats claw caps..opened 1 of the 5 caps and tried to insufflate !!Burned like hell!! didnt even make it through half the line.. i've probably done 10kgs of cocaine in the past (serious addict) but stopped 2 years ago and coke is like sniffing air compared to this or any mdma or Ex...even worse than crystal meth... anyway, waited 20 mins... took another gram... then waited 10 mins and took another gram...then waited another 10 mins... and finally 10 mins later took another grams total= 6.5grams all taken with strong coffee...finished at 7:40pm. by the 7:25 mark had wave of tingles and blood pressure increase... then tapered until about 8:00pm then all hell broke loose... euphoria kind of, very body rushy-yet mind is calm...then waves started hitting- one peak would taper off then another and another and another....each wave more intense than the last.. last big wave was at about 8:40 and i just about passed out while reading. then i came to and looked at my hands and they were beat red like a rash or something.. looked in mirror and face was same... turned to look at my back--red starting out from spine was intense...very scary- heart beating soo fast - still feeling a bit rushy but more fearful than anything...still getting waves but not as strong...each time hands dim a bit from red then as next wave hits boom full on blotchy red rash.. now i'm writing this and its 9:20... rush kinda stopped at like 9:10...hands finally going back to normal but not totally normal yet... all in all, didn't enjoy it like REAL drugs... maybe i'll do it again with less qty. .... and maybe some deprenyl but then i'll only take like 500mg (1 cap)

Amazing euphoria. Extreme relaxation and well-being. I mean really...it's insane how good it feels. It's cheap too. I dosed between 1.5-2 grams on an empty stomach right when I woke up. The two drawbacks are it's short-duration (5-15 minutes without an MAO-B inhibitor) and it's side effects that scared me away from using it again. (Face becomes red and somewhat blotchy, and sometimes even my whole body if I get a really intense buzz. This slowly goes away over maybe a 30minute-1hour period.)

I don't mean to scare you away, give it a try and see how you react, but start out low (500-750mg) and work your way up to see how it affects you.

I bought PEA by Primaforce which is 500 mg in one capsule and popped one in around
2:00 pm when I was starting to get tired but still had lots to do before the end of the day. It's better if taken on an empty stomach so I had a light lunch that day to make sure it'd work. Also, it's supposedly more effective when taken with caffeine and so I had a cup of coffee to go with it. About 10 minutes later I felt great!! The fatigue was gone and I felt energized, very focused and task oriented, it was short of an amazing feeling - very nice, clean energy, appetite suppresion (I need it), and laser sharp focus.
I'm not sure if this can be taken daily, it doesn't say anything on the bottle. Anyway, I give it 5 starts all the way.

Wow. PEA is one hell of a drug. Effects lasting for around an hour, feelings of euphoria and heightened senses, really spaced out, floating sensations but I was still able to retain my focus, balance, motor skills. Felt better than an alcohol buzz, no ill effects during or after, and I felt in control for the entire 'trip.' The only downside was that my skin turned noticeably red. Otherwise, this is a great alcohol/illicit drug alternative that lets you remain in control while still feeling great.

This stuff works! and i was very surprised with results. I have been always very skeptical about cognitive nutrition in general, i mean brain vitamins and stuff but for one or other reason, all i've tried has worked for me but i keep guessing :S.

PEA improves your brain a lot. It gives you mental clearness, alertness improved, well mood and focus. Actually i've found more success from using it for study purposes rather than bodybuilding lol. It makes me focus more on subject and avoid distractors (of course you need to have initiative ).

Those that feel weird sometimes, without energy and without concentration and focus, should look further into PEA supplements, they are cheap, they work and you have nothing to lose with them, they are very safe.

Unique nutrition was the one i've tried, so i recommend it to anyone, plus there's a new version that is Double strength.

Ever since hearing that this was the active in chocolate that made people feel good, I knew I wanted to try some. I bought 10g in bulk to try out. My first dose was 200mg, and I felt nothing. I tried 2g next, and waited about 10 min. Then it hit me. I felt like everything in the world was awesome, and that I loved everyone. I just wanted to smile and go up to random people and hug them. It was AWESOME. It was too bad that the effects only lasted about 2 hours. Some people say you need an MAO inhibitor for PEA to work, but I didn't seem to need one. Maybe it would have prolonged the effects? Anyways, if you are looking for something to relax and chill with, grab some PEA. 10/10 while it lasts

I first became apparent of the effects PEA had on my mood when I first tried a sample of Gaspari's Cytolean. It was an amazing experience, but I wasn't quite sure if just the PEA was responsible for it, so Steve sent me some Unique Nutrition PEA to try (thanks again, Steve!). Being that I don't drink, I wanted to recreationally try something for my mood.

Dosing

The bottle says 1-2 caps daily, which I felt was sort of a low dose. It took a while of experimenting with the doses to find my "sweet spot". Sometimes it was hit or miss, not feeling the effects 100%, but the effects were very noticeable when it did work for me.

1-3 caps - Felt nothing, even on an empty stomach.

4+ caps - This is where PEA seemed to work best for me. 3 caps, on an empty stomach, then 3 caps 15 mins later gave me sort of a euphoric feeling, a sense of well being, and made me smile a lot. Light feeling in the back of the head, which was a strange but neat feeling.

4+ caps with stimulants - Improved focus and mental acuity. I feel it worked best with AN's RPM before a workout.

I have read that PEA with the use of an MAO-B inhibitor such as hordenine or Deprenyl makes using PEA a much more enjoyable experience, and the feeling lasts longer. I have not tried it with one, except for the use of Cytolean. I am definitely going to want to try some more/different nootropics (so many damn ones to choose from), as focus seems to always be a hard thing to attain.
