Why Dr. Meredith Warner Uses PEA Every Day

Why Dr. Meredith Warner Uses PEA Every Day

As a clinician and a human being, I believe in naturally enhancing my health and improving my overall well-being. I also believe in this for my patients. Many patients come to me with persistent pain that makes it difficult for them to go about their regular activities. Some of them wake up with nerve pain that only worsens throughout the day. I have learned that there are many natural and non-invasive ways to help these patients.

In many cases, recurring and inappropriate inflammation levels are the underlying cause of many people’s day-to-day pain.

Inflammation does play an essential role in your body’s everyday recovery routines - swelling around a bruise or injury indicates that inflammation has started the healing cascade, for example - but when your body creates signals for too much-prolonged inflammation, then tissue damage begins rather than tissue healing. Chronic inflammation can create oxidative and inflammatory stress that can be avoided with lifestyle and diet changes, supplementation, and anti-inflammatories.

One such anti-inflammatory supplement is PEA – but it does so much more than relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Here’s why I choose to take PEA every day:

What Is PEA (Palmitoylethanolamide)?

PEA is a natural fatty acid molecule that is produced throughout the human body every day. Often, it is made in response to injury. It serves a variety of functions in the management of chronic pain and inflammation. Recent studies have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain-relieving,) and neuroprotective benefits.

Taking PEA as a supplement to assist your body in fighting recurring inflammation and pain may be beneficial. In recent clinical trials, patients have also improved their distress and neuropathic symptoms when taking PEA regularly. This shows that PEA is neuroprotective – which means that it can protect damaged nerve endings from further injury.

PEA is similar to CBD (cannabidiol) in that it engages your body’s regulatory system to exert its benefits. This regulatory system is known as the endocannabinoid system. It is responsible for regulating homeostasis, the healthy balance of all systems that regulate body temperature, appetite, nerve signaling, inflammation, and more. While CBD exerts its effects on the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system, PEA impacts receptors such as GPR55 and GPR199 or the PPAR.

PEA exerts its effects on nerve pain by preventing histamines’ release near peripheral nerves, making it anti-inflammatory. It’s been shown to have positive effects when given to patients who have suffered from a stroke as it is neuroprotective. 

Some recent research has also indicated that PEA, through its ability to reduce cell death, may reduce heart tissue damage, lower blood pressure, and therefore promote a healthier circulatory system.

Why We Include PEA In Our Formulations

We currently offer several products at Well Theory with PEA included – to give you a variety of options to choose from while curating your wellness routine.

Like our new Pain Relief + Recovery Cream, our topical creams are formulated with PEA, Lidocaine, Menthol, and a soothing blend of botanicals to soothe pain on contact and then fight inflammation progressively over time. 

So you can truly heal, not just treat symptoms.

Our Essential Multivitamin is also formulated with PEA to fill the gaps in your nutrition while repairing damaged tissues from the inside out. When taken as a supplement, PEA can work harder for your benefit – soothing sore muscles, preventing cell death, removing inflammation throughout your body, and more.

If founded Well Theory to offer you the same natural remedies, I choose to include in my wellness routine and the patients who walk through my clinic doors.
