FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientists at Life Extension announced today the development of an easy-to-take chewable supplement designed to relieve occasional minor pain and discomfort with palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) as the main ingredient in their new PEA Discomfort Relief. Numerous clinical studies have validated PEA's efficacy to help consumers find relief for their minor pains.
A whopping 25.3 million U.S. adults say they've experienced daily pain for the preceding three months, according to the 2012 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS).
"PEA is a game changer. This unique fatty acid, which is also found naturally in the body, targets an underlying step in the development of minor pain and discomfort," says Dr. Michael Smith, Life Extension Education Director.
PEA's effectiveness has been demonstrated in multiple clinical studies. In fact, 600 mg of PEA given every day for three weeks significantly improved relative comfort and quality of life scores during a randomized, placebo-controlled trial following 636 patients.
