It is a food supplement naturally found in eggs and milk. Palmitoylethanolamide does NOT contain sugar, yeast, allergen, sorbitol, magnesium stearate, salicylates or other ingredients.
HOW IT WORKS
PEA is a glial cell modulator. Glial cells are responsible for releasing inflammatory substances that act upon neurons and amplify pain. PEA 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. It’s a natural alternative to pain relief.
No significant side effects have been reported. Palmitoylethanolamide can also be taken simultaneously with other medications as there has been no drug interactions reported to date.
