Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a fatty acid substance that is naturally made by our bodies. It is involved in cell protection, inflammation, and pain regulation. PEA has been used for decades as a nutritional supplement and is thought to be an anti-inflammatory, which may also have analgesic properties.
PEA may support the following types of pain:
- Back & sciatic
- Carpal tunnel
- Dental pain
- Pelvic pain
- Fibromyalgia associated pain
- Joint and spine
- Neck and abdomina
PEA may not be suitable for you, always seek medical advice from a licensed medical professional before taking any supplement.
There is evidence to show that PEA is safe when used at the recommended amounts. Palmitoylethanolamide has been around for more than 60 years and no adverse events have been reported.
