PRL-8-53 Chemical Structure
PRL-8-53 is a synthetic supplement with potential benefits for short term memory. PRL-8-53 is derived from benzoic acid and phenylmethylamine. The compound is a benzoic acid methyl ester. PRL-8-53 is a synthetic Nootropic supplement, meaning it was created in a lab. Its full name is methyl 3-(2-(benzyl(methyl)amino)ethyl)benzoate.The single published study for PRL-8-53 shows a slight improvement of word acquisition during a memorization task. Participants were given 5mg of PRL-8-53 2 hours prior to testing and then were then asked to listen to a recording of 12 words in a particular sequence and recite them at future time points (shortly after testing, a day after and 4 days after). Minor benefits were found for immediate acquisition, but an over 80% improvement was noted for people tested later on who had initially scored poorly for the test .
The single published human study used 5mg of PRL-8-53 and found it enhanced recall on a word-remembering test. The patent for the compound mentions an oral dose of 0.01mg/kg per dose, taken 3 times per day.
