Vitalitus is the only reputable supplier of PEA in the US – palmitoylethanolamide


.

.

.

Strong Warning

.

 Purchase PEA only from *Vitalitus* in the U.S.

..

.

I have previously warned readers, but I continue to be bombarded with fake comments about the toxic contaminated Chinese powder with a fake address in Florida that sells on the web at a “bargain” so that people think they will save money. 

.

Do not buy from any other source than Vitalitus in the U.S. Or purchase PeaPure in the Netherlands. 

.

Take the capsules with something fatty to help them absorb (glass of whole milk, peanut butter, etc) and continue for 2 to 3 months to determine if they work. The PEA Cream called Soothamide will give relief in a few minutes when it works for pain.

PEA Capsules & PEA Cream from Vitalitus – Soothamide


.

.

.

.

Palmitoylethanolamide (Pea in the US, PeaPure in Netherlands) is a glial modulator, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective and anticonvulsant  with mechanisms involving the innate immune system and mast cells. It binds to a receptor in the cell nucleus. The major focus of hundreds of publications on it has been inflammation, neuropathic pain states and mast cell related disorders from University of Oxford,  Journal of Arthritis Research and Therapy, Journal of Pain Research, University of Bologna School of Dentistry (a study for TMJD pain), etc.

.

It is a food supplement. It is a naturally occurring lipid amide, i.e. the body makes it, plants make it. It is available as a capsule and a cream without prescription. It may take days to weeks to work, but I’ve seen the cream work in two minutes – shock!  The relief is amazing for someone who has failed everything for intractable pain.

.

Soothamide Cream is 2% palmitoylethanolamide from Vitalitus in the US.

.

It’s been fascinating to see the cream work for so many pain syndromes including severe CRPS/RSD nerve pain! arthritis, muscle and severe ligamentous strain – often in less than two minutes! Not everyone, not every pain benefits but it is well worth trying and very affordable for large amount.

.

One senior whose osteoarthritis in finger joints has been painful, very stiff, and prevents him from only very slightly being able to bend four fingers on his right hand. It’s been years since he’s been able to touch tips of the fingers to his palm because of stiffness and pain. They just would not go.

.

After applying Soothamide cream, in less than 20 minutes he was able to fully, easily and painlessly bend all four fingers to the palm without any trace of stifness – quite astonishing. And the next day, three of the four fingers still had complete 100% relief 20 hours later, but it did not last for the index finger, even applying it later to that finger over those 20 hours. Twenty hours relief is amazing for three fingers after years of severe stiffness and pain. Relief may have been hours longer, but he took off for the day and data like this is difficult to pay attention to, and then to make a memory note of how long.

.

Another with knee pain and significant joint effusion (fluid that creates pressure inside the joint), had relief for 3 hours after one application in the office.

.

I have seen the cream relieve low back pain completely in less than two minutes. This was the father of a patient who had tried it in the office and it failed to help that patient, but she had a little left on her hand and schmeared it across her dad’s back. All pain gone in less than two minutes!  I am assuming this was muscle strain, not deep mechanical structures in the spine.

.

Another patient with RSD pain on the foot had no benefit, but she then applied the Soothamide to a very severe pain from torn ligament in the arm that was more painful than her RSD. It was gone in less than two minutes, to her shock and delight.

.

The cream has only recently been available in the US, and I have seen it help so many patients including those with CRPS/ RSD nerve pain. Most relief from creams is short lived, but if you see 4 hours of relief, or 20 plus hours as the patient above, it is very special.

.

The cream has been such fun! Having seen even the severe nerve pain of CRPS/RSD improve or be astonishingly gone -!- in less than two minutes -!- it helps doctors forget the pain of being unable to offer anything more. Here we have capsules and cream that do not require prescription. And even in the most extreme pain syndromes is worthy of a try.

.

.

PEA capsules – open and place powder under tongue for instant relief of breakthrough pain.

..

That was a blessing in the middle of last night for one of my patients with RSD who was having a severe flare of pain. In August, she had started PEA capsules 3 twice daily – always take with something fatty (milk, peanut butter, etc) to aid absorption. In 3 weeks it had reduced her lower limb pain from severe to mild-moderate while in bed. Now months later, after reducing another medication briefly due to side effects, pain flared severely. What to do?

.

I instructed her to open the PEA capsule and place the powder under tongue to absorb there. She had relief. I don’t have data to relate more as yet but hope to post as I learn from her and hopefully other patients who write in their comments. How much is safe? I will try to find more information. We know the body makes it, plants make it and at doses of 6 capsules daily it causes no side effects.

PEA in US (palmitoylethanolamide), PeaPure in Netherlands – DO NOT BUY OTHER SOURCES


.

.

.

PEA in US is palmitoylethanolamide from Vitalitus

PeaPure in  Netherlands

.

DO NOT BUY OTHER SOURCES

.

.

PEA is thankfully available in the US since Spring 2016 from ONE company: Vitalitus. It is a trusted source. Buy PEA only from Vitalitus in the US, others are fraudulent sources.

.

I strongly recommend that you AVOID any product with a “PEA-type” name trying to sell elsewhere in the US or on the web.

.

One such fraudulent source is a foreign entity pretending to be in the US, and they are now listing a US address on Brickell Avenue, Miami, FL 33131 United States. But that is a virtual office address which is still listed for rent at $60/month.

.

It looks like they’ve morphed the website and their product label. Very professional looking but AVOID THEM LIKE POISON. They keep trying to post comments on my website. They may even be buying advertising on my free site – anyone can advertise but I do not endorse products with this one exception, PEA, because it is unique.

.

I have also seen “PEA-type” powder available on the web. Do not buy powders claiming they are pure palmitoylethanolamide. They are not trustworthy sources.

.

Make sure your PEA comes only from a trustworthy source. In the US, that is Vitalitus. PEA works on the innate immune system, mast cells, and much more. There are more than 400 scientific publications on palmitoylethanolamide since it was rediscovered by a Nobel Prize Winner in 1993. Vitalitus’ PEA capsules are 100% palmitoylethanolamide. Pain relief is one of its immune functions. Your body makes it, plants make it, it has no toxicity, but follow directions or capsules will not fully absorb.

Vulvodynia Topical Treatment – Monotherapy Obsolete


.

.

.

New topical treatment of vulvodynia based on the pathogenetic role of cross talk between nociceptors, immunocompetent cells, and epithelial cells

.

Authors Keppel Hesselink JM, Kopsky DJ, Sajben N
.

Journal of Pain Research 2016, 9:757-762

 

.

.

Abstract: Topical treatments of localized neuropathic pain syndromes in general are mostly neglected, mainly due to the fact that most pain physicians expect that a topical formulation needs to result in a transdermal delivery of the active compounds. On the basis of the practical experience, this study brings forth a new, somewhat neglected element of the vulvodynia pathogenesis: the cross talk between the nerve endings of nociceptors, the adjacent immunocompetent cells, and vaginal epithelial cells. Insight into this cross talk during a pathogenic condition supports the treatment of vulvodynia with topical (compounded) creams. Vulvodynia was successfully treated with an analgesic cream consisting of baclofen 5% together with the autacoid palmitoylethanolamide 1% [Pea, PeaPure], an endogenous anti-inflammatory compound. In this review, data is presented to substantiate the rationale behind developing and prescribing topical products for localized pain states such as vulvodynia. Most chronic inflammatory disorders are based on a network pathogenesis, and monotherapeutic inroads into the treatment of such disorders are obsolete.

.

.

.

[Vitalitus, the American manufacturer of PEA, expects to have their first batch of cream for sale in 2 weeks. It’s a 2% PEA cream.]

PEA Vitalitus Micronized/ultramicronized superior


.

.

.

.

From the Journal of Neuroinflammation comes this 2014 discussion of PEA related to the recent post on Vitalitus PEA product. PEA is micronized.

 

Micronized/ultramicronized palmitoylethanolamide displays superior oral efficacy compared to nonmicronized palmitoylethanolamide in a rat model of inflammatory pain

 

… PEA’s ability to modulate inflammation and pain in animal studies led to the proposal of this endogenous fatty acid amide as a component of a complex homeostatic system controlling the basal threshold of both inflammation and pain. The fact that PEA is produced during inflammatory conditions supports this role. Further, data showing selective inhibition of PEA degradation to be anti-inflammatory points more directly to PEA’s involvement in the control of pain and inflammation. As an endogenous compound, PEA has no adverse effects at pharmacological doses while possessing a double therapeutic effect (that is, anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive) (see [8,9] for recent reviews).

.

This study allows me to be confident that the product sold in USA is as helpful as PeaPure sold in Netherlands.

.

PEA is a glial modulator. It clearly modulates the TLR4 mediated inflammatory responses and dose-related inhibits inflammatory evoked TNFa and IL-1b gene expression. This and other mechanisms are summarized by Jan Keppel Hesselink in 2013.

PEA (palmitoylethanolamide) made in America – like PeaPure


.

.

.

Vitalitus

now sells PEA

.

Palmitoylethanolamide is now sold in the US as PEA by Vitalitus. It should be very comparable with the product PeaPure from the Netherlands. Since a Nobel Prize winner rediscovered it in 1993, over 400 scientific papers have been published on it. It is a food supplement, your brain makes it, plants make it. It is nontoxic, a glial modulator that works on the innate immune system, inflammation and mast cells, among many functions.

 

.

Remember, you need to take PEA capsules with something a little fatty, like milk, or peanut butter, or buttered toast. Otherwise, it will not absorb. Because it is lipophilic, i.e. likes fat, it does not dissolve in water. Only oil.

.

Dosage – use the search functions on left column for PEA or palmitoylethanolamide or PeaPure. You will find where I previously imported the instructions from the Netherlands website.

,

PeaPure has helped intractable nerve pain. We published in 2014 the case of a woman in remission after 8 years of vulvodynia, treated with PeaPure.

 

.

I have been very pleased with PeaPure (palmitoylethanolamide) for neuropathic pain. It is available in a capsule as a food supplement called PEA, without prescription.

Update on PeaPure – Palmitoylethanolamide


.

.

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

 

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2014

.

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.
