Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) and its receptors are present in different cell types in the central nervous system. Moreover, as PEA crosses the blood-brain barrier, supplementing with PEA may help prevent and manage various neuroinflammatory conditions.
PEA is an important player in the effective management of pain and inflammation, with the bulk of evidence supporting its pain-relieving properties. However, did you know that PEA also has a range of therapeutic benefits on the brain? Emerging research is showing promising results for PEA as a natural agent to support mood, reduce neuroinflammation and provide neuroprotection.
