Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) has neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, pain relieving and anti-convulsant actions. Often in chronic pain or inflammatory conditions the body may not produce sufficient amounts of Palmitoylethanolamide hence supplementing with a product containing PEA, such as PEA capsules may help.
Clinical and scientific studies have shown a significant reduction in pain intensity in the following conditions; severe neuropathic pain, sciatic pain, prostate pain, pain after stroke, multiple sclerosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, post-herpetic neuralgia, dental pain, burning mouth pain, pelvic pain, diabetic neuropathy, low back pain, vaginal pain, osteoarthritis, menstrual pains, fibromyalgia
PEA 400mg capsules
The usual dose is
Adults: ONE capsule THREE times a DAY with or immediately after food.
A positive response has been seen after a few doses but may take up to 2 months. If no pain reduction is noticed after 2 months of taking PEA then it is advisable to try an alternative treatment.
Some patients reported feeling stomach heaviness. This was possibly caused by the inactive ingredient Sorbitol which is not present in the Green Dispensary Compounding product.
