 PEA Calms Digestive Stress and Improves Bowel Motility
We all understand the feeling of butterflies in the tummy or stress affecting appetite or bowel motility.

Your digestive tract has its own internal nervous system as well as the vagus nerve and spinal nerves connections. This internal nervous system has more than 100 million nerve endings and affects many things including gastrointestinal motility.

Animal studies showed that PEA via PPAR-alpha and its cannabinoid mimicking effects helped calm down irritated nerves in the gut, which improved bowel irritability and transit time.

In another recent double-blind controlled trial, PEA was found to protect the intestinal tract lining as it modulated cytokine activity. PEA reduced increased permeability effects on the gut mucosal lining caused by aspirin intake.

Consider adding our new Wellness Resources PEA Ultra to your nutritional program to help digestive stress and bowel motility. This highly absorbable Levagen® PEA also promotes restful sleep, naturally calms the nervous system, and helps nerve and joint comfort.*
