P.E.A. Supplement – Provides Anti-inflammatory and Analgesic Benefits

PEA is an ultra-innovative supplement based on palmitoylethanolamide, a bioactive fatty acid produced naturally by animal and plant cells.

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) has been attracting widespread attention in the scientific community following the Nobel Prize-winning work of Dr Rita Levi-Montalcini. Taken for a period of several months, it aims to restore the body’s natural biochemical balance.

What is in the supplement PEA?

PEA is formulated from a proprietary source of palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) (OptiPEA®) which offers unrivalled purity.

This is an important advantage because palmitoylethanolamide is usually taken for several months if not years: taking a poor quality supplement (of which there are plenty on the market) will invariably cause adverse effects in the long term.

Palmitoylethanolamide in the human body

The vast majority of our cells are able to produce palmitoylethanolamide on demand, primarily when they are damaged or threatened.

When they need it, they remove certain fatty acids from their membranes and convert them into palmitoylethanolamide with the help of precursors called N-acylphosphatidylethanolamines (NAPEs). The reverse pathway is equally simple: using an enzyme called ‘fatty acid amide hydrolase’ (FAAH), the PEA is broken down by cells and the fatty acids reintegrated into cell membranes.

Cells use this process to rebalance biological processes that have been disrupted, such as over-activation of glial cells (2).

Note : this paragraph does not deal with the effects of exogenous palmitoylethanolamide.

When and how should you take PEA?

The following protocol is usually recommended for a course of PEA:

  • 3 capsules a day, one with each main meal, for the first two months.
  • 2 capsules a day for the following two months.
  • 1 capsule a day thereafter until the end of the supplementation period.

If necessary, however, PEA can be taken on a continuing basis.

It’s advisable, throughout the supplementation period, to try to follow the measures below:

  • Regular exercise whenever possible.
  • Acupuncture.
  • Massage therapy.
  • Relaxation techniques such as meditation or visualisation.

What happens to PEA once it’s been ingested?

Following ingestion, PEA is rapidly distributed throughout the body. One study even showed that some of the palmitoylethanolamide molecules reach the brain (3), with a relatively diverse distribution (the cerebral cortex, hypothalamus and white matter are the areas in which most PEA is found).

Are there any contraindications associated with taking PEA?

Over the course of twelve clinical studies conducted since 1972, researchers have not found PEA supplementation to produce any particular side-effects (4) - hardly surprising given that palmitoylethanolamide is produced naturally by the body’s cells.

Nor have any drug interactions been identified to date. However, anyone suffering from kidney or liver problems is advised to start with 400mg daily (1 capsule) and gradually increase the dose over subsequent weeks.

These safety indications only apply to supplements made from pharmaceutical grade palmitoylethanolamide such as our product, PEA. Avoid palmitoylethanolamide of unknown origin to prevent any nasty surprises.

Four good reasons to try PEA

  1. As PEA is not very soluble in water, it has quite low bioavailability. To maximise it, you need to choose a micronised supplement - in other words, one that contains very fine particles, which is obviously the case with our PEA.
  2. As PEA supplements are taken for very long periods, it’s important to opt for the highest quality product possible.
  3. Most PEA supplements are made from palm oil grown in conditions that involve deforestation and adversely affect biodiversity. The PEA in our supplement has been extracted from RSPO-certified (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) palm oil, in accordance with strict sustainable development criteria.
  4. PEA is a compound that has played a key role in evolutionary history, since almost all animals still produce it today. Its properties have been known for decades but it was the work of Dr Rita Levi-Montalcini which made it possible to understand its precise role in the body. Indeed, this work earned her the Nobel Prize in Medicine in the 1990s.

Note : this product should not be used to replace a varied, balanced diet or healthy lifestyle. Follow the advice on use, the recommended daily dose and the use-by date. Not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or for children under 15. Keep out of young children’s reach. Store in a cool, dry place.

Excellent pour soulager les douleurs
Très peu efficace pour la douleur
Prodotto buono ed efficace, non rapido come i più noti antinfiammatori ma pericolosi per chi ha patologie vascolari. Con "P E A" mi sento più sicuro, e un grazie a smart per i suoi consigli.
