About P.E.A.

What is P.E.A?

Pain specialists and clinics across Australia recommend P.E.A. (Palmitoylethanolamide) as a management option for chronic pain.

How does it work?

P.E.A. is naturally produced in the body to fight pain and lower inflammation, however, people who have been suffering from pain for a long time may have low levels of P.E.A. Therefore, taking an extra source of P.E.A., may boost the body’s response to help with a number of painful conditions and their associated symptoms.

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.


Taking P.E.A.

P.E.A. is non-addictive, generally well tolerated and can be taken with other medications.
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.

Maximum benefit could take up to 3 months but results are typically seen in 4-6 weeks. 
P.E.A. is known to have a wide dosage range, which may require careful adjustment to suit your needs.
