Could this ‘pain secret’ help keep a FIRM GRIP on your precious memories?

You don’t ask for much.

You’re not looking to become SO smart… you win the Nobel Prize…

Or even have a mind like a steel trap.

You just don’t want a mind like sieve!

And you CERTAINLY want to make sure your precious memories don’t SLIP AWAY.

Unfortunately, mainstream medicine hasn’t gotten much to offer you in terms of bringing cognitive decline to a SCREECHING HALT

Because it doesn’t understand what causes it in the first place!

But there’s ANOTHER side to medicine – one that looks at things a little differently.

And THAT medicinal approach may have something to offer folks worried about cognitive impairment… or maybe even already experiencing it.

Here’s the latest you need to know about.

Down the hatch… or down the drain?

Our bodies make a fat molecule called palmitoylethanolamide (for PEA for short) from the most common fatty acid found in animals, called palmitic acid.

Scientists first isolated PEA from animal products (like chicken egg yolks) all the way back in 1957…

And since then, we’ve learned how PEA influences messages within the nervous system… including our brains…

Which, as you’ve read right here in eAlert, is how it helps DIAL DOWN our perception of pain (especially nerve pain).

Because of its ability to BANISH pain, PEA may also be able to REVERSE pain-related memory impairments. (And if you’ve ever had pain so bad you couldn’t think straight… you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.)

It’s also a powerful anti-inflammatory

Which helps PROTECT the nervous system… even in stroke patients and cases of traumatic brain injury!

In fact, PEA seems most promising when it comes to keeping injury-related damage AT BAY… and STAVING OFF neurodegeneration.

In a 2017 study, adding PEA to Parkinson’s disease patients’ drug therapy helped TURN DOWN the severity of their disease… and SLOW DOWN disease progression

Both in terms of their motor symptoms (as PD is a movement disorder) and non-motor symptoms (as PD is also a neurodegenerative disease).

That’s not all…

In a 2019 animal study out of Italy, PEA helped REDUCE brain tissue damage (including brain cell death) resulting from induced vascular dementia – the second-highest cause of dementia behind Alzheimer’s disease.

Other studies have shown how PEA might help REIN IN Alzheimer’s progression

And in another animal study of Italy, PEA even SLAMMED THE BRAKES on cognitive impairments even when the researchers tried to INDUCE them in the study subjects!

Here’s what could be the most ENLIGHTENING animal study of all…

PEA improved memory and learning in mice that had been bred to be genetically predisposed to developing Alzheimer’s disease… even bringing their performance levels up to the threshold of the “normal” study subjects

But it worked BETTER on the YOUNGER mice

And it had ZERO effect on the healthy mice!

Now, PEA’s potential cognitive benefits have primarily been demonstrated so far in in vitro and in vivo animal studies… and not in real people…

So we don’t know whether it would work THE SAME in you or me.

But that does mirror what we already know about cognitive decline – that you’ve got to catch it EARLY.

And that like most of the cognitive-boosting nutrients out there, PEA works best in those who need it most.

So, if you DON’T show any neurodegeneration or memory impairment… it probably WON’T sharpen your mind to the point of genius level.

There are plenty of human studies on using PEA for pain… so its good safety record has already been well established.

If you ask your doc about PEA, he’ll probably tell you there’s no harm in trying a supplement… which you can find at your local health food store or online. (If he leans a bit more on the conventional side of medicine, though, he’ll probably tell you it won’t do anything at all.)

Look for a micronized or ultra-micronized formulation, which helps improve its bioavailability.

Some researchers are also looking into combining PEA with luteolin… a flavonoid that’s demonstrated its neuroprotective effects and has shown to help PRESERVE memory.

You can find them together in a formula called Mirica by Young Nutraceuticals out of Arkansas.
