Overview of REPP Sports Phenibut
REPP Sports burst onto the supplement scene in 2017 with their new line of hardcore supplements in the form of a pre-workout, fat burner, muscle builder, PCT and Phenibut – which we are about to talk about. REPP Sports is all about pushing you to your limits by using the highest quality of ingredients in their products while eliminating any harmful substances you might find in others. The brand has a great look and image to carry it into the future.
Phenibut from REPP Sports is an amazing product. Phenibut is a mood enhancer, anti-stressor and sleep aid. This was the first type of supplement sleep product we’ve tested here at Fitness Informant and it scores very high. Phenibut is a simple, one ingredient product that does exactly what it says it does: relaxes you. At a very reasonable price, Phenibut will rank as one of the best sleep aids on the market.
Testing Results and Ratings
We reviewed REPP Sports Phenibut on four categories. We first start by looking at it’s ingredient profile. This portion of the review looks at the ingredients used in the making of this sleep aid supplement. We look into each ingredients effective use and determine if it was a quality selection for the product.
We then look at the dosage of the sleep aid supplement. Are they using the ingredients at effective doses? It’s one thing to select awesome ingredients, it’s another to make sure they are being dosed where they are meant to be effective.
We then look at effectiveness. This is generally an extension of the profile and dosage section. The higher quality ingredients used at proper dosages, the more effective that product will be.
Finally, we talk about value. Value is the combination of profile, dosage and effectiveness in relation to cost. Another part of value are the competitors and other versions of sleep aid supplements on the market.
Phenibut is technically a nootropic as it enhances cognitive functionality at lower doses (100-200mg). In this case, Phenibut is used more as a calming agent and sleep aid. Phenibut is also used to treat cases of anxiety, stress, fatigue, insomnia, depression and tension. As you can tell by reading all of those cases Phenibut must really be something special.
Phenibut is used in other sleep aids in the industry. Many people are concerned why this is an OTC supplement because there has been cases of abuse and addiction with Phenibut. Our advice: be smart about it. Don’t go popping pills. Use as instructed.
I will be honest, there are not a lot of studies for Phenibut on humans. Studies show that it is effective in the animal testing they’ve (not Repp Sports) done. Now I know how some people feel about animal testing, but we’re not here to get into that. Based on other capsule Phenibut products 250mg per capsule seems appropriate. If you use as directed, two to three capsules should be enough to get you a good nights sleep.
Honestly, the only sleep agent I have ever used in the past was NyQuil and Tylenol PM. I have always wondering about the supplement side of them but never really wanted to spend the money to test it…in case I hated it.
Phenibut is the real deal. The instructions say to take two capsules during the day (500mg) for relaxation. Prior to bed it instructs you to take three (750mg). This should be based on your weight but I jumped right in.
The two capsules for relaxation worked nicely. Hell, you might even get away with one. I work a pretty stressful job so having these to calm me down in my afternoons worked great.
The real benefit of Phenibut, to me, is how it helps you fall into a deep sleep. Those of us who train hard know that sleep is our friend. This is when your body heals itself and produces the most growth hormone to increase muscle gains and speed up recovery. On only 750mg of Phenibut I fell into deep sleeps and slept through the entire night. I would go to bed at 9pm and get up at 5am…that’s a solid 8-hours of sleep.
Unlike some reports I have read, I did not experience any vivid dreams. I was just out. Cold. I loved it.
Regarding addiction or abuse I could see how one might feel addicted to this as it provides an amazing sleep but don’t become dependent on it. Use it when you really need a good nights sleep. Plus then it will last longer!
Phenibut is available at a great price. REPP Sports Phenibut retails for $20 online and you get 90 capsules. That means if you are only using this to get a good night’s rest you have 30-servings per bottle. The competition in the capsule form is around the same price. You are not paying a premium for the brand. You are paying what you should be paying for a product that works. Other sleep aids that include ingredients like GABA and L-Arginine retail for around $40. If you don’t need the other ingredients and just want a quality sleep aid then Repp Sports Phenibut is an awesome choice.
