peaCURE capsules are made in the US using top-quality palmitoylethanolamide and the latest production processes. It contains no additives, taste modifiers or excipients.
Each capsule contains 400 mg of pure palmitoylethanolamide
Palmitoylethanolamide (peaCURE), is a fatty acid amide, and is a naturally occurring substance within our bodies. Fatty acid amides are, as the name suggests, an amide formed from a fatty acid and an amine. Amines are a functional group that consist of a nitrogen atom in combination with three carbon atoms and/or hydrogen atoms. Fatty acid amides are vital to the chemical signaling processes within our bodies.
Palmitoylethanolamide is produced within our cells, and within the body it contributes to the homeostasis, or balance, of the body.
First identified in Czechoslovakia in 1952, palmitoylethanolamide was initially brought to market by the company Spofa in the late ‘60’s. It was introduced using the brand name Impulsin. The same product was introduced to Spain by Almirall under the brand name Palmidrol in 1976. After more than a decade on the market, the product disappeared as the Czechoslovakian manufacturer ceased production. There are many scientific articles about palmitoylethanolamide, which can be found on the medical database Pubmed.
Rita Levi-Montalcini & Palmitoylethanolamide
Rita Levi-Montalcini, a Nobel Prize winner, found a relationship between palmitoylethanolamide and anandamide during her research throughout the 1990’s. Anandamide, whose name is a derivative of the word Ananda, which means happiness in Sanskrit, is a neurotransmitter. Anandamide is found naturally in the body. This substance is closely associated with the regions of the brain that are responsible important processes. These include happiness, the higher thinking processes, fertility, memory and motor control.
Since the initial discovery of palmitoylethanolamide up to 2015, there have been around 500 separate studies on the properties of palmitoylethanolamide for human health. Palmitoylethanolamide is a substance that has gained popularity amongst researchers, clinicians and pharmacologists around the world.
