peaCURE: questions and answers
The benefit of peaCURE is that it is pure and contains no chemical additives like sorbitol or magnesium stearate (which is present in many other palmitoylethanolamide products, including Normast).
Our peaCURE comes in 400mg capsules. While your health specialist might prescribe different intakes, we generally recommend as follows.
Take at least 1200 mg per day for the first month—two capsules in the morning and one in the evening.
Effects are usually evident after a few days or weeks. However, if after four weeks you have not experienced them, increase the dosage to two capsules a day.
Liposomal peaCURE dosage is 7.5 ml a day. That equals four capsules a day, but due to the increase in bioavailablity from the liposomal delivery system.
People older than 65 can use the recommended dose of peaCURE (1200 mg per day). Throughout Europe many hundreds of people over age 65 have used this dose without any problems.
To get the optimal results from peaCURE, we recommend that you start with a two-month supply (two bottles of 90 capsules each). For the first 10 days, rather than swallowing the capsules, remove the powder from them and place it under your tongue. After the tenth day, you may swallow the capsules.
Due to the fact that peaCURE is a medical food, rather than a prescription drug, many doctors will not yet have heard of it.

Our peaCURE come in large, fine, or very fine grains. “Micronized” and “ultramicronized” describe the size of the grain:
micronized: particle dimensions between 6 and 10 microns
ultramicronized: particle dimensions between 0.2 and 5 microns.
There are other products that contain palmitoylethanolamide, including Pelvilen and Normast. However, the percentage of palmitoylethanolamide in those products is quite low.
Additionally, Normast, Pelvilen and other Italian-made palmitoylethanolamide products are not available in the United States, because they are only registered in Italy and Spain.
Exercise care when buying products containing palmitoylethanolamide, as not all such products are certified for purity and may contain additives or substances, the safety of which is not entirely clear.
Yes, there are several differences.
Though both contain palmitoylethanolamide, Normast contains magnesium stearate, a chemical filler/additive that is known to decrease the effectiveness of palmitoylethanolamide. Normast powder also contains the sweetener sorbitol, which may cause diarrhea, cramps and bloating.
Our peaCURE contains only palmitoylethanolamide, entirely pure and without pharmaceutical fillers, additives or sweeteners. The capsule also doesn’t contain gelatin, like many capsules do.
We often get asked about cheap palmitoylethanolamide.
Recently, an increased number of cheap palmitoylethanolamide products have become available. However, as with most anything, you get what you pay for. If you purchase “cheap” palmitoylethanolamide, don’t expect that it will be of high quality.
The key quality factor is the production method used. We produce peaCURE using a strict and highly standardized process. There are palmitoylethanolamide capsules on the market that have not been validated for safety or effectiveness.
Furthermore, there are palmitoylethanolamide capsules that contain titanium oxide as a coloring. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) titanium oxide is a substance that causes cancer. Therefore, be sure to look for pure palmitoylethanolamide, without colorings or other chemical additives.
