The role of PEA in endometriosis

CAPTION: October 2020

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a naturally occurring fatty acid amide that is noted for its analgesic activity. A recent study has found that PEA supplementation, along with alpha-lipoic acid and myrrh, significantly reduced chronic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhoea (painful menstruation) and dyspareunia (painful intercourse) in women with endometriosis. As there is no successful long term treatment for pain associated with endometriosis, PEA may be a valuable remedy for women suffering this debilitating condition. You may be prescribed a a quality PEA supplement through a qualified healthcare practitioner.
