Phenylethylamine HCL (PEA) Powder
Low levels of PEA have been linked to conditions such as ADHD and clinical Depression, while abnormally high levels of PEA have been linked to conditions like Schizophrenia.
Health Benefits Provided by Phenylethylamine HCL
This supplement is found in chocolate and releases endorphins and other hormones that help the brain feel better and may contribute to a generally more pleasant mood in the person that is taking the supplement. It may also help maintain healthy blood sugar and blood pressure. This can be a positive effect for people with low blood pressure, but a negative one for people with conditions such as Diabetes, where blood sugar must be monitored rigorously. Of course, PEA HCL has a very short lifespan lasting a mere 15 minutes, and this must be taken into account when supplementing.

PEA HCL SIDE EFFECTS
This supplement should not be taken along with MAO inhibitors or any other kind of depression or mood-altering medication. Those who have disorders that cause their body to store an excess of Phenylalanine should not take this supplement, due to the possibility of accidental overdose. Those who have been diagnosed with problems such as clinical depression or schizophrenia may not see any positive effects from taking this supplement, so it is recommended that use of it first be discussed with a medical professional. Women who are pregnant or nursing are warned not to take this.
General side effects include mild headache, nausea, heartburn and constipation. If suggested amounts are ignored, side effects could worsen to insomnia, dizziness, sharp chest pains, respiratory problems or dangerous increases in heart rate and blood pressure. This is why 500mg per serving is the maximum that should be taken.
