WHAT IS PEA?
PEA is known as a trace amine, meaning there is a smaller quantity of it in the brain compared to other amino acids. PEA, also known as β-phenylethylamine, 2-phenethylamine, and phenylethylamine, functions as a neurotransmitter in the human body. Other than the human brain, PEA can be found in many algae, fungi, bacteria, chocolate, eggs, and other plant species. PEA has stimulant effects which trigger the release of dopamine and serotonin. It is not an amphetamine, but rather has effects similar to the natural release of endorphins (runner’s high). In medical trials, patients with ADHD output less PEA than patients without ADHD. When ADHD was treated with pharmaceuticals, PEA levels increased. Because many amphetamines used to treat ADHD have many negative side effects, some naturopaths now recommend PEA instead of other stimulants to treat ADHD. PEA also has reported antidepressant effects.
