PEA (palmitoylethanolamide) is a fatty-acid-like compound naturally found in foods. Natural Factors PEA is naturally produced from fractionated non-GMO safflower oil. It then undergoes a micronization process for improved solubility and absorption. PEA has been shown to be helpful in managing occasional pain and discomfort.*
THE POWER OF PHYTORESPONSE!TM
PhytoResponse refers to plant foods and herbs that can modulate and positively influence the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) directly or indirectly and support the body’s production of endocannabinoids with non-cannabis, plant-based botanical compounds. The ECS promotes homeostasis, or balance.
THE POWER OF PEA AND THE ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM
PEA (N-palmitoylethanolamide) is an endogenous fatty acid amide that belongs to the family of biologically active lipids that are increased by the body to soothe discomfort. PEA is a member of the ECS with several biological functions, including neuromodulatory activity in the central nervous system. It has been demonstrated to be effective on the different inflammatory mechanisms that develop and maintain both neurogenic and neuropathic pain.
There are two sources of PEA commercially available. Synthetic forms require the use of powerful synthetic solvents. PEA can be naturally derived from safflower oil. PEA400 only utilizes naturally derived palmitoylethanolamide from safflower seed.
Natural Factors PEA400 is gluten free, third-party certified non-GMO, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
