Palmitoylethanolamide Origin, History and Background

The chemical name of PeaPure is N-palmitoylethanolamide. (This is often abbreviated as PEA, although this can be confusing because PEA can refer to other substances.)

Palmitoylethanolamide is an natural (endogenous) fatty acid amide belonging to the family known as N-acylethanolamines (NAE's; or N-acylethanolamides), including 'cannabis-like' compounds such as N-arachidonoylethanolamide (anandamide, AEA).

Palmitoylethanolamide Stimulates Phagocytosis by Microglial Cells without Inducing an Inflammatory Reaction

Summary: Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA), an endogenous lipid, increased phagocytosis of bacteria by microglial cells in vitro without a measurable proinflammatory effect. This allows the immune system to kill pathogens without harming nerve cells. Palmitoylethanolamide has been extensively tested clinically without observed severe side effects.
