Product Notes:

3% PEA - Topical Palmitoylethanolamide Lotion

If you're experiencing pain from an inflammatory condition but want to avoid oral supplements which may cause gastrointestinal distress, try PEAk Activate Lotion from AOR.

Some of the most interesting recent developments in addressing the physiological basis for pain have been in discovering the role of the signalling network in our bodies known as the Endocannabinoid System (ECS) in modulating it, and in creating therapeutic agents to work with that.

To alleviate the pains associated with inflammatory conditions such as localized joint or muscle pains or even less localized pains from conditions such as endometriosis, these new ECS-targeting therapeutic agents come in various forms, including topical creams, which usually use either CBD or an analogue such as CB2. And now for the first time in Canada, thanks to AOR, there is also one which features the same active ingredient used in their P.E.A Activate capsules and lozenges.

Palmitoylethanolamide

Palmitoylethanolamide is a long-chain fatty acid that's naturally present in our own bodies as part of the ECS, and which can also be derived from certain plants to provide more of it. One of its primary functions is to influence mast cells to reduce their inflammatory response, which explains why it's been shown to be able to help a variety of conditions related to that, to date, including: carpal tunnel syndrome, chemotherapy-induced painful neuropathy, mild atopic dermatitis in children, fibromyalgia syndrome, lower back pain, and sciatica, with more studies appearing all the time.

This isn't the first topical cream with PEA to become available in North America, mind you: there's also one called Soothamide that was released in the USA several years ago, which reportedly has had good results in relieving skin conditions like psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis, and even some instances of the neuropathic pain of Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS, formerly called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or RSD). But that type only is only a 2% concentration by volume, while AOR's is a 3% PEA Topical Lotion, so it's apt to do all that and more (or more effectively).

Of course, it should also be noted that this formulation is not just a topical version of the marquee ingredient. It's also a skincare lotion, featuring a number of other mainly plant-based ingredients which can help the skin in their own right, which function as cleansers, emollients, emulsifiers, moisturizers, and more, to help relieve itching in the skin you're applying it to, and to help it retain its moisture and make it feel softer.
