Get to know PEA
PEA, also known as endocannabinoid-like lipid mediator, is part of the ECS that the body produces in response to noxious stimuli and can also be consumed through the diet, including egg yolk. PEA has been researched for over 70 years and has a wide range of clinical applications from pain and inflammation to mood and neuroprotection. Unlike pharmacological opioid pain therapies that block pain signals, PEA supports the healthy function of immune cells and upstream pain signals.
