peaCURE: questions and answers
Yes. In 2015 Care Pharmaceuticals introduced the supplement peaCURE. It is produced in 400 mg doses and is available in packages of 60 and 90 vegetarian capsules each.
The benefit of peaCURE is that it is pure and contains no chemical additives like sorbitol or magnesium stearate (which is present in other palmitoylethanolamide supplements, including Normast).
The response of customers to this supplement is very good.
Because palmitoylethanolamide is a compound produced by the body, it can be used for a lot of different types of pain.
Various studies have shown it to be effective for neuropathic pain, jaw pain, dystrophy pains, wrist and hand pain, pain due to shingles, and back and leg pains, among others.
Our private practitioners has successfully used peaCURE to treat patients for pain due to hernia, diabetes, post-stroke, post-paraplegia, multiple sclerosis, and for different types of polyneuropathy including small fiber neuropathy.
Yes. An extensive article published in the International Journal of Inflammation in 2013 discussed six clinical trials involving 3,627 patients, all of which showed palmitoylethanolamide to be an effective treatment and preventative for flu.
In case of acute flu or colds, take two capsules twice daily. For prevention during the flu season, take one capsule twice daily.
There are several studies in which palmitoylethanolamide was successfully combined with common prescription drugs (e.g. Lyrica or Oxycodon) to treat neuropathic pain.
In fact, the studies reported that, in combination with palmitoylethanolamide, the side effects of Lyrica and Oxycodon decreased.
Our peaCURE can be used safely with painkillers or other medicine and will often increase their effectiveness.
More than ten thousands customers throughout Europe (primarily in Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands) have used peaCURE, with no report of serious side effects.
Research from 2013 shows that even high daily doses (up to 100mg per kg [2.2 lbs] of body weight) cause no side effects. Children can safely take up to 50mg of peaCURE per kg of body weight.
Our peaCURE can be safely combined with other supplements and medicines.
Our peaCURE comes in 400mg capsules.
Take at least 1200 mg per day for the first month—two capsules in the morning and one in the evening.
You should experience a reduction in pain after a few days or weeks. However, if after three or four weeks you’ve experienced no reduction, increase the dosage to two capsules three times a day.
For severe pain, such as pain after a stroke, we recommend taking 1200 mg on the first day but thereafter moving up to a higher dosage—two capsules twice or three times a day for at least a month.
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.
The oldest patient treated with peaCURE in the United States was 87 years of age and didn’t experience any side effects.
Based on our experience, you should experience a decrease in pain between day one and 28 after you start taking peaCure. However, more challenging types of pain will require longer use before you feel results.
Some people don’t notice the effects until they stop taking peaCure and realize that their pain had decreased over the weeks.
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.
Because it works with the natural mechanisms of the body, it sometimes takes longer to notice effects with peaCure than it would with chemical painkillers, which shut down the nervous system immediately.
Our peaCure resets the body through a series of biological mechanisms, beginning when the palmitoylethanolamide molecule enters the body and binds with a specific part of the cell, called the nucleus receptor.
Our peaCURE works naturally with your body to calm and stabilize cells that produce pain- and inflammation-causing substances. It may take a few weeks to noticeably decrease the pain and inflammation in the body.
Because peaCURE is a natural supplement, rather than a prescription drug, many doctors will not yet have heard of it.
A special information sheet is available under this link, so that your doctor can find out about the scientific research behind peaCURE.
Depending on the supplement brand, peaCURE may 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 supplements 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.
Patients that have used Normast and tried peaCure said that the powder from the capsule is more pleasant to take under the tongue. Because it contains no sweetener, it does not produce saliva but melts easily in the mouth and is immediately taken into the bloodstream through the mucus membranes.
People who have done well on Normast also do well—or even better—with peaCure.
We often get asked about cheap palmitoylethanolamide.
Recently, an increased number of cheap palmitoylethanolamide supplements 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.
