What is P.E.A?
P.E.A. (or Palmitoylethanolamide) is a compounded treatment option for chronic pain, recommended by pain specialists and clinics throughout Australia.
How does it work?
P.E.A. is a fatty acid molecule naturally found in the body and obtained from protein rich foods such as egg yolk, soyabean and meat. Research has shown that P.E.A. possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive properties and taking it regularly may boost your body's natural response to pain by dampening the response of the nervous system cells which cause pain.
Many chronic pain sufferers exhibit low levels of P.E.A. and supplementation is thought to restore the body’s P.E.A. levels and help combat the pain response.
P.E.A. is non-addictive and is generally well tolerated.
It can be taken together with other pain medication or alone, as advised by your health care professional, to support pain relief. P.E.A. can also help reduce reliance on stronger pain medications that cause unwanted side-effects.
Many of our patients have experienced positive results within 4-6 weeks of treatment. The maximum response to pain relief may take up to 3 months. P.E.A. is known to have a wide dosage range, which may require careful adjustment to suit your needs.
