Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a long chain fatty acid naturally produced by the body but also found in foods such as egg yolk, soy and sunflower oils. This molecule, researched for its unique and varied health benefits for eighty years, is now receiving attention because of its crucial role in the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is a lipid communication network with critical physiological functions. It is a signalingnetwork that communicates with other systems throughout the body, helping to regulate them. PEA is an endocannabinoid produced locally by the cells, and it accumulates in tissues following any injury, physical stress or pain.
By inhibitingthe activation of mast cells that cause additional inflammation (such as the release of histamine), PEA acts as a potent anti-inflammatory agent. This unique molecule has other direct and indirect mechanisms of action; it even enhances the action of other endocannabinoids through its “entourage effect”. The PEA molecule has been clinically demonstrated to relieve pain in osteoarthritis of the knee as well as to reduce symptoms of low back pain. This mighty little molecule is well toleratedfor athletes, children and seniors.
Supports Cellular Homeostasis
- Scientifically shown to help reduce chronic pain and inflammation
- A naturally occurring long-chain fatty acid amide generally producedin response to various triggers including inflammation
- Provides a multi-pronged approach to activating and sustaining the endocannabinoid system
- Studied for 80 years and by more than 300+ medical studies
Studies show that P.E.A may be used as an anti-inflammatory to help relieve chronic pain.
AOR is leading the way by transforming the impressive and evolving research on PEA’s positive effects within the human endocannabinoid system, bringing you a safe and therapeutic formulation to combat chronic pain and systemic inflammation. The PEA in AOR’s P.E.A. Pain Relief is produced in Italy and originally extracted from environmentally sustainable Malaysian palm oil that is purified and responsibly processed for optimal bioavailability.
