PEA is an endogenous fatty acid amide synthesized by microglia and mast cells, which naturally exists in humans, animals, and plants. PEA is believed to maintain homeostasis by mediating the regression of the inflammatory process, thereby controlling neuroinflammation, and helping to prevent and improve the symptoms of neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer’s disease). PEA has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and neuroprotective properties.
