Update on PeaPure – Palmitoylethanolamide



Please refer to this post for context. Here is the addition:




It is with a heavy heart that I report this news:


Palmitoylethanolamide is

now available only from the Netherlands,

sold as PeaPure, a food supplement.

www.peapure.com – click on UK flag for English.


It can no longer be imported in the USA in larger quantities.

My local pharmacy is trying hard to find alternatives,

but it may take years, if they are successful at all.




.I have published this year, 2014, on the treatment of

vulvodynia and proctodynia with PeaPure and a topical cream.


There are no studies to show us how often it may relieve nerve pain,

but it is astonishing when it works.

No toxicity, no side effects.

Your brain makes it, plants make it.

There is a growing literature on it and I have posted on some of its mechanisms,

in particular, its Anti-inflammatory, Analgesic, Neuroprotective Mechanisms.
