Biochem/physiol Actions

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a natural fatty acid amide of ethanolamine and palmitic acid. It is found in soybeans, egg yolk, and many other food sources. PEA is an endogenous cannabinoid receptor agonist. It is a peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor α (PPAR-α) ligand. PEA possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, neuroprotective, and analgesic activities. It belongs to the class of lipid mediators and the N-acylethanolamine family. PEA blocks the release of pro-inflammatory mediators from activated mast cells and prevents the recruitment of activated mast cells at the site of nerve injury.
