P.E.A, or Palmitoylethanolamide, is a protein that our bodies produce naturally. It can also be absorbed through our nutritional intake. (Fatty foods such as eggs and peanuts are fantastic sources). Unfortunately, for many of us, we don’t produce or intake nearly enough to keep up with our body’s needs when we are in chronic pain.
P.E.A has been used as a medication for decades - its usage dates back to the 1950s, and has been shown to help with some neuropathic and inflammatory conditions.
Completely safe with other medications, minimal to no side effects, and is one of the leading pain medications recommended by pain specialists today - what’s not to love?
Is a prescription required for P.E.A?
Our policy here at Usher Compounding Pharmacy has always been prescription-based; this assures that your health can be professionally monitored and you’re not having to do your own prescribing. As P.E.A has a slight anti-inflammatory effect on the body, it’s important to make sure your liver and kidneys are in good health and functioning as they should be. It also assures your health record is accurate, just in case you need to go into hospital, have surgery, or otherwise require medical attention.
Not only ideal for patients - P.E.A can also be used for animals suffering from neurological or inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.
The best part is: We compound it right here in store.
