Phenylethylamine is a tiny, organic compound that is derived from naturally occurring amino acids located within the brain. 
What does Phenylethylamine do?
The role of phenethylamine is similar to a neurotransmitter as it sends mood regulatory messages within the brain. 
Benefits and Effects
Treatment of Depression
The Phenylethylamine hormone is naturally produced when engaging in physical activities. A recent study found that when individuals exercised for 30-minutes, they experienced a 60-80 percent increase in mood. 
One research study tested the dosage effects of 10-60 mg of phenylethylamine in addition to 5 mg of an antidepressant. Individuals were given this combination twice per day over the span of a month. 60%  of the participants experienced an initial decrease in depressive symptoms. However, further research is needed to support the long-term effects of usage.
Phenylethylamine HCL and Weight Loss
Users connect Phenylethylamine and weight loss  due to its release of catecholamines. These chemicals directly work breakdown stored fat and increase weight loss. Much like cognitive stimulants like Adderall, phenylethylamine can help to suppress the appetite and eliminate excessive eating. Similar to Phentermine, PEA HCL us is used to promote healthy weight loss without intense side effects. When combined with routine exercise, the metabolism is increased. Since this supplement is already working to increase metabolism and curve appetite, it is not recommended to combine Phenylethylamine with diet pills.
What foods contain Phenylethylamine?
There are specific phenylethylamine foods that work as natural aphrodisiacs. The production of phenylethylamine occurs naturally in plants. DARK CHOCOLATE derived from cocoa beans has about 0.6-0.7% of Phenylethylamine  per serving.
How it Works
There are limited studies on the effects of phenylethylamine usage. However, of the known research, PEA has been deemed safe for residual use with little side effects. However, this supplement is not suggested for individuals pregnant, breastfeeding, or those who possess a naturally high level of PEA. These include individuals with schizophrenia, bipolar, and extreme depression.
Since there is limited research on the efficiency of phenethylamine, the dosage information is contingent on a variety of factors. The suggested dosage is 500mg either once or over the course of the day. Results are optimal when taken prior to engaging in a mentally stimulating activity.
Since phenylethylamine is a stimulant, possible side effects are an increased heart rate, jittery feelings, and increased nervousness.
Phenylethylamine and Caffeine
Individuals reportedly experience heightened focus and the motivation to complete mentally stimulating activities. It does provide an intense increase in stimulation, therefore, it is suggested to take this supplement in small doses if being used with caffeine. 
Phenylethylamine HCL and Hordenine
Hordenine is a natural stimulant that when combined with phenethylamine equates to longer attention benefits. Since hardening increases the half-life of phenethylamin, it is recommended to take the hardening dosage about 30 minutes prior to taking phenethylamin.
