“Hello, It's with gratitude that I want to thank you for delivering promptly a quality product. Just a suggestion, it can help alleviate the headache problem, for those that experience it, to take GLPC or Beet Root Powder or Agmatine sulfate capsules to produce Nitric Oxide which will dilate the arteries and relieve the temporary hypertension which is a side effect of PEA use. At 72 years old, I have found PEA to literally be a "Game Changer" on the energy front. The release of Norepinephrine, Epinephrine and Dopamine gives inspiration to any task. I do take frequent, necessary, naps following my various projects, which include housework, practicing my Conga Drums and an office cleaning gig. A little PEA goes a long way if you take it with a catalyst, such as Hordenine or Yohimbe, which provide the mild MAO B inhibition. Thanks again.” - James J
“I can see how this could help with depression and motivation issues. Works better with some individual brain chemistry's than others. I got different results at different times. I like what one of the guys said in that he puts some in his water bottle at work and sips it throughout the day. If you happen to be on some medications, like a mao-b inhibitor the effects could be amplified a lot. I'll give this one another try unlike a lot of things I ordered the first time. At these prices you can afford to experiment to see what works for you. This is the best vendor of these supplements hands down. You can tell with the product verified testing and aggressive pricing these guys have their stuff together. They ship quickly, the USPS is another story. Five Stars for powder city.” - Jay M
“I ordered this with Hordenine. Although the first several times I took this, I had taken it with Hordenine, which resulted in a pleasant sense of concentration along with a brief boost in my mood. One day I decided to try it without Hordenine and noticed NO DIFFERENCE in effects. I have been dosing it without Horenine ever since with the same results. I'd say it's been 8 days since my last dose of Hordenine and I take a modest dose each morning that works like a cup of coffee that gets me on my feet in the morning. When the effects wear off I don't crash and also don't feel the need to lay back down. I simply get on with the rest of my day. When I read around on forums, practically everyone claims this has no effects by itself, even Alexander Shulgin mentions it has no noticeable effect in PIHKAL at doses up to 1600mg. 1600mg is higher than my daily morning dose that gets me on my feet in the morning. Although this seems not to be true for the majority, it will definitely have an effect after dosing Hordenine.” - Skylar A
“I got some PEA quite a while ago. I'd been using caffeine as part of a pre-workout, and was curious about PEA's effect, so I swapped out the PEA, and went running. (It should be noted that PEA smelled like PEE, but I gulped it down with the mix). I didn't notice much of stimulation the way caffeine or some others have, but once I started running it was pretty apparent. I felt I could run much farther and for much longer time. However, I'm an habitual over-trainer, and I also saw that if I wasn't careful, PEA could really help me push myself into a bad injury or worse, so I spent the rest of my time enjoying the effortlessness and holding back a little. I haven't tried it again in a while, but I look forward to using it soon in a new workout routine, just with a great deal of caution till I really get to know it.” - Jeff S
