Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is natural and found in nearly all animal tissues, human breast milk, and many foods. Since its discovery in 1957, PEA has been studied extensively for its anti-inflammatory, neuro-protective and analgesic properties.*

1. SUPPORTS IMMUNE HEALTH

PEA has been shown to positively influence several inflammatory and immunological processes. In six different placebo-controlled, double-blind trials composed of 3627 people, PEA was shown to support a healthy immune response.*

2. SUPPORTS HEALTHY JOINTS*

A double-blind placebo-controlled study among in adults with mild to moderate knee pain and stiffness had 111 participants randomized to receive 300 mg PEA, 600 mg PEA or a placebo each day for 8 weeks. There was a significant reduction in pain, stiffness, and anxious feelings in the PEA groups compared to placebo.*

3. Improves Sleep Quality

In a study of 42 patients awaiting surgery for nerve compression in the wrist who suffered from sleep disruption and painful symptoms were randomized into two groups. One group received PEA (600 mg twice daily) during the pre- and post surgery periods, while the other group did not receive any treatment except surgical therapy. At the end of the pre-surgery period, there was a highly significant improvement among the PEA group in overall sleep quality as well as a significant reduction of pain.*

4. SUPPORTS BALANCED MOOD*

A randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study of 58 patients with depressive symptoms was administered. They received either PEA or placebo in addition to citalopram for six weeks. The PEA group demonstrated significantly greater improvement in depressive symptoms compared to the placebo group throughout the trial period.*

5. SUPPORTS MUSCLE RECOVERY*

In a study of 28 healthy young male participants, results indicated PEA supplementation aids in muscle recovery.*

6. REDUCES DISCOMFORT

A meta-analysis of the pain reducing capability and safety of PEA comprised of 26 clinical trials and 1484 chronic pain patients. Those taking PEA reported pain levels an average of 2.7 points lower than the control groups after 60 days.* [3].

7. OVER 900 PUBLISHED STUDIES

PEA, the main ingredient in Mirica, has been studied extensively for its numerous health benefits.* Over 900 studies and 60 clinical trials show PEA is safe and free of side effects.*
