Palmitoylethanolamide: a supplement effective in chronic pain
What is it about?
We explain the background of the nutraceutical palmitoylethanolamide, freely available as the supplement PeaPure, and describe the efficacy and safety in a number of treatment resistant pain patients. PeaPure has also been evaluated related to plasma levels of PEA and after intake PEA levels measured increased at least 2-4 fold.
Why is it important?
Palmitoylethanolamide is a natural compound, endogenous produced in our body, and since 1957 well known for its therapeutic properties. The compound has a demonstrated analgesic effect and can be easily combined with any other analgesic (painkiller).
