Yes. In 2015 Care Health introduced the medical food peaCURE. It is produced in 400 mg doses. There is also a Liposomal version available.

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).

peaCURE is available all over the world through our website shop.

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.

Children should be given half the adult daily dose (i.e. start at 600 mg and increase to 800-1,200 mg as needed).

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.

peaCURE can be bought on our website, through resellers on Amazon, or in physical stores and medical facilities owned by an ever-growing number of health professionals worldwide.

As with any supplement, before taking it, you should be sure it’s laboratory tested and pure, preferably by the FDA, and consult your doctor based on your health parameters. In many markets, PEA is advertised as a nootropic. Nootropics are notorious for being composed of a few choice “proprietary ingredients,” which may cause blood pressure spikes and increased agitation. The key to safe PEA supplement use is verifying that there is only PEA within the pills. Any package which labels exotic ingredients contained within are not worth your time.

One of the receptors in your brain PEA binds to is peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPAR-α). This receptor regulates your appetite, metabolism, weight management, and the breakdown of fats. An activated PPAR-α makes you feel fuller while eating so that you consume fewer calories. A decreased appetite, combined with a decreased inflammatory response, allows you to carry less body fat and lose weight. PEA is not a “magic weight loss pill,” but if used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise, many see more significant results.

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.

PEA is a non-toxic substance. Its naturally occurring presence within the human body makes it unlikely to “overdose” on. It is also present in various staple foods such as milk and eggs. There have been no severe side effects reported. There have not been any adverse drug interactions reported either. To date, there have been no deaths linked to PEA ingestion. To this day, the only negative side effect reported was an upset stomach, but only in rare cases. Patients continued taking standard medications such as paracetamol and aspirin while on PEA.

PEA is not classified as an endocannabinoid because it lacks a strong affinity for the cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. The presence of PEA within your system increases neurotransmitter activity in your body through something known as the “entourage effect.” The entourage effect means that PEA changes the psychoactive effects of cannabinoids — like Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — by increasing cannabinoid receptor activity. Taking PEA while ingesting exogenous cannabinoids could change the effects, increasing uptake. Without cannabis, PEA would act as it does within your body and perform its natural functions.

To put it plainly, any behavior or external substance you ingest could become addictive. That aside, the possibility of addiction to a compound like PEA, one that is made in our bodies, is near zero. Based on many clinical trials, the reason most people sought out PEA was because of excess inflammation due to low PEA levels within their bodies. Taking PEA would only relieve their inflammation. There have been no side effects reported from discontinuing the use of PEA. If anything, swelling and pain might return due to naturally-occurring levels of PEA returning to what they were before treatment.
