Health Benefits at a Glance:
PEA (palmitoylethanolamide) is a unique kind of fatty acid which is produced in the body. It has a remarkable ability to inhibit inflammation and has also been found to soothe tender areas of the body by turning off discomfort signals [4, 5].
Why it Works:
When you experience physical discomforts, your body is telling you that something is wrong. Repeated occasional physical discomforts can be debilitating and lower quality of life. So while one should always pay close attention to such discomforts, there are two things that one can do to inhibit them. One can always address the underlying cause of physical discomforts as well as turn off discomfort signaling in the body.
A promising solution for natural management of physical discomforts is PEA which the body produces naturally as a response to inflammation-induced discomforts . PEA acts peripherally at the site of the original problem and helps reduce inflammatory stimuli in tissues that would otherwise be amplified and then forwarded to the brain.
PEA Discomfort Relief combines 600mg of PEA in an easy-to-use, chewable tablet with a delicious berry flavour. Simply eat one or two tablets per day if you experience occasional physical discomfort.
The Science Behind the Product:
The efficacy of PEA has been demonstrated in multiple clinical trials . For example: In a controlled trial that randomized 636 patients to placebo or PEA for three weeks, 600 mg of PEA every day significantly improved scores on assessments of relative comfort and quality of life .
How to Use:
