Ingredient Highlight: Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA)

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is an endogenous fatty acid amide made inside the body when necessary. It is also a member of the extended endocannabinoid family and ligands at non-cannabinoid peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors. Since its discovery in 1954 there have been a good amount of studies aimed to demonstrate its role in a variety of biological functions related to chronic pain and inflammation.

PEA has been used in several controlled studies focused on the management of chronic pain among adult patients with different underlying clinical conditions. Some of these studies can be viewed here or in a recent scoping review available here. These are only a selection from the broad research done on this fatty acid amide.
