Pain is one of the most common health complaints presented in the Pharmacy. As Pharmacists, we are the most accessible healthcare providers and so we get a lot of people coming into the Pharmacy seeking advice on different types of pain relief. We understand that pain can have an incredible impact on people’s lifestyle and quality of life. With the recent upscheduling of codeine, more customers have been asking us about alternative treatment options for pain. Emslies Pharmacy in Perth offers a wide selection of alternative treatments for pain. Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a great natural supplement that has been beneficial to many chronic pain sufferers. Not only has it worked well for many people, it is also very safe and has no known side effects.
Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a food supplement naturally found in eggs and milk. It does NOT contain sugar, yeast, allergen, sorbitol, magnesium stearate, salicylates or other ingredients and so is suitable for most people.
Research has shown that chronic pain sufferers have low PEA levels, and that supplementing to increase the body’s level of palmitoylethanolamide may be beneficial in the treatment of both chronic and neuropathic pain. Palmitoylethanolamide can be used to treat:
Palmitoylethanolamide is a glial cell modulator. Glial cells are responsible for releasing inflammatory substances that act upon neurons and amplify pain. PEA (palmitoylethanolamide), which also occurs naturally in small amounts in our body, tones down pain with time. Supplementation with PEA encourages the body’s own natural healing and painkilling ability.
There are no known side effects to palmitoylethanolamide.
