Neurobiologix PEA Soothe Support (Time Released) supports natural pain reliever, natural anti-inflammatory, homeostasis regulator, neuroprotective at the cellular level, pain and nervous system issues, muscle recovery and muscle pain, and immune system support. Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) is a bio-identical fatty acid amide that is normally synthesized by healthy tissue in the human body in response to inflammation. PEA is made by various plants and animals and is present throughout the animal kingdom. PEA can be found in many different tissues including glia, neurons, retina, white blood cells, mast cells and adipocytes. Supplementing with time released PEA has been scientlfcally shown to naturally assist in the reduction of inflammation and to have neuro-protective and possibly pain control effects. This natural anti-inflammatory supports the nervous system and abnormal immune responses.
What are Glial and Mast Cells? Glial cells are various types of companion cells in the central and peripheral nervous system. Once thought to be nothing more than the glue that holds the brain together, these cells are now understood to have a much more complex role in the brain besides simply acting as a scaffold. Glial cells are responsible for nourishing neurons, facilitating nerve impulses, and exerting an inflammatory response on neurons. Dysregulation and over-activation of glial cells can have a detrimental effect on the nervous system. Mast cells are a type of immune system cell that responds to chemical signals from tissue injury. When mast cells “degranulate,” they release a payload of inflammatory cytokines, NGF, histamines, and other molecules in the surrounding tissue. These chemicals attract white blood cells and activate their immune response against pathogens. Mast cells also activate nociceptors (pain receptors) with the chemicals they secrete. Overactive mast cell activation induces an increase in the density and sensitivity of pain receptors and can play a part in a variety of chronic pain issues.
How does it work? It was discovered that mammals have a specific receptor cell known as the endocannabinoid system, which is closely interconnected with the nervous and immune system. CBD has been shown to boost every function of our cannabinoid receptors to help soothe and relax us. PEA has an affinity for the cannabinoid-like G-coupled receptors, although it has no affinity for the classical cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. This is why it is sometimes referred to as a non-psychoactive “indirect endocannabinoid.” It does not block pain signals the way opioids and other analgestics do. Instead it works upstream by supporting the healthy function of glial cells and mast cells.*
Recommended Use: Take 1 Capsule twice daily or as directed by a healthcare professional. For best results take with food or lipids. Children consult with a healthcare provider prior to use.
NOTE: In some cases, patients see a benefit from consuming 4 capsules a day for two to three weeks when starting a PEA regimen as an initial loading phase before decreasing to the recommended twice-a-day dosing.

PEA Soothe support was recommended to my dad with ALS. What are the basic differences between the capsules and the cream for a case such as his with neuromuscular disease?
So sorry to hear that you have to deal with your dad's ALS. I would recommend the topical for more local pain issues and the capsules for a more general response.

PEA Soothe Support was recommended by a Nutritionist for my dad with ALS who has a PEG. Can the capsules can either be broken open or dissolved for the enteral feedings? Also, he had a GI bleed back in the October as well.
These are veggie caps so you should be able to open them up. I am not sure how well the ingredients will dissolve in the solution you are using. You will have to experiment to see if these work for your purposes.
