How PEA May Relieve Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms

What Is Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune, inflammatory disorder associated with chronic low-grade inflammation. When you have MS, your immune system turns against your own body – eating away at the protective coverings surrounding your nerves. The resulting nerve damage can cause many different symptoms, including pain, vision loss, fatigue, and impaired coordination as communication between the brain and body is disrupted.

Physical therapy and certain medications that help suppress the immune system can be effective against MS symptoms and slow this autoimmune disease’s progression. There are many prescription-grade medications available too. Please seek the evaluation of a neurologist or orthopedic surgeon if you believe you may have this disorder.

Nonetheless, many natural substances have been studied concerning the treatment of symptoms of MS. We have incorporated a few into our products due to the massive benefits that are possible.

What Is PEA (Palmitoylethanolamide) ?

the role it plays in inflammation

The analgesic (pain-relieving) and anti-inflammatory properties of PEA make it a promising supplement for combating the symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis.

Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is produced naturally by the body in response to inflammation and pain. Some research suggests that it engages your body’s natural endocannabinoid or regulatory system to reduce pain and relieve inflammation. 

Your endocannabinoid system is essentially what regulates your hormones, your sensation of pain, hunger, anxiety, etc. It also tells your body when to start and end its natural inflammatory processes. Also, the endocannabinoid system plays a large role in the overall balance of your immune system.

Inflammation is a normal part of your body’s healing routines. When you bump against a table, the swelling that occurs is designed to protect the site of injury so it can heal properly. Swelling is a marker of the first phase of healing. This is an average and appropriate amount of inflammation – but when your body produces too much inflammation, it can cause problems.

How PEA Can Relieve MS Symptoms

Today, PEA is available in pill, powder, and capsule form as a natural supplement.

Initial research has shown that PEA may also help support the brain, heart, and, most importantly – immune health. By keeping a more healthy, balanced immune system, there is some potential in some measure of relief from autoimmune symptoms.

By relieving inflammation around the nerves, relieving pain associated with nerve damage, and providing healthy immune function support, PEA shows excellent promise as a natural method of relief for MS pain and symptoms.

This is why we decided to develop PEA products here at Well Theory. We offer two topical creams that contain PEA that is great for soothing away pain quickly in a targeted setting. 

For overall wellness and nerve support, we recommend taking our Essential Multivitamin.

Our PEA Essential Multivitamin is explicitly designed to relieve pain in aching muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and fascia while supporting connective tissues and joints’ health and function. It is protective against joint degeneration and naturally reduces inflammation while promoting healing. PEA has shown great promise in reducing neuroinflammation.
