What is PEA? Palmitoylethanolamide is produced in our own bodies to reduce pain, inflammation, and promote cell recovery. It was discovered in the 1950s and has been extensively researched ever since with consistent findings:
*No side effects. *No tolerance build-up . *No risk of overdosing. *No allergic reactions. *No negative interactions with other treatments.
PEA is often compared to CBD for pain-management and anti-inflammation impact. However, most people don’t know about PEA because CBD has had so much funding and social media promotion behind it. Coming from the marijuana industry, perhaps there is something hip and cool that gives it support and coverage. However decades of research with consistent findings puts PEA far ahead of CBD with it’s list of risks and limited research. My Friend Violet wants you to know the truths about what you use to feel better in all parts of your body, but especially when it comes to pain that impedes your sexual satisfaction and enjoyment of your favorite athletic activities.
Pieter Castelein, CEO of PEACure, educates people worldwide about the difference.
“First of all, it is not totally safe. Mild side effects include things like drowsiness, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and euphoria, while more serious, albeit rarer side effects include a decrease in T and B cell activity, which are very important for the proper functioning of the immune system.
It is also not recommended that CBD is taken alongside all other therapies. The main reason for this is that it reduces the effects of an enzyme called cytochrome P450. This enzyme is a big part of the metabolism of many drugs, so if this enzyme is not working correctly, the side effects of those drugs can be significantly increased. Keeping in mind the side effects of most painkillers, this can be a significant issue.
For this reason, about two months ago (late November 2019) FDA released a press announcement that pointed out some concerns regarding CBD. FDA emphasized the lack of conclusive evidence about the effects of CBD, especially scarcity of research regarding long-term side effects. Potential risks include liver injury, negative interactions with numerous drugs, mood changes, and more.
Lastly, and probably most importantly, the FDA warned 15 companies that were found illegally selling CBD products. The most frightening thing is that some of these products contained heavy metals and pesticides, and they were sold widely in the US. This emphasizes the perils that come with overly saturated markets such as the one related to CBD products. Control is insufficient; there are too many of them, and information is not as reliable as we are led to believe.”
