VITALS PEA Pure with PEA (palmitoylethanolamide) is a fatty acid amide that belongs to the group of Nuclear Factor agonists and is made in the human body as a response to pain and inflammation. It is also found in food substances in small amounts, such as eggs, peanuts, soy, organ meat and fish.
Under certain conditions , it may be a good idea to ingest PEA as a supplement. Because PEA is bio-identical, it is absorbed very well from the intestines and transported to the tissues where it is needed. After it has been implemented , PEA is broken down into simpler elements.
In order to take the best advantage of PEA, it is important to choose for a high purity highly dosed supplement: each capsule contains no less than 400mg pure palmitoylethanolamide (PeaPure®) without any other additives.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

How to live well with arthritis: move more and eat healthier
Just 2 days later in the gym, my right shoulder joint clearly audible started creaking during a conventional lat pull down exercise, so much so that I called over my partner to ask him if he could hear it as well, I knew it was about time to investigate what treatments are available for (osteo)arthritis, an ailment that will hit almost everyone at a certain age.
Optimal care for elderly catsWhile we don't have children, we are the proud parents of two cats. Both were adopted from their owners for a different reason with well over ten years between each adoption.
Our oldest cat has reached the respectable age of 18 years, which makes her a truly old cat, which comes with many health problems of its own. By now we are more like the grand children who are taking care of their very old (great-)grand parent.
It subsequently blows your mind to see how senior cats are put on an even lower protein diet than they already receive. While felines are full-on carnivores, most will received a mixed diet with an unhealthy amount of carbohydrates. If you're lucky the grains are replaced by legumes, which however does not considerably lower the amount of carbs. Never mind on the precious few choices for cats with urinary or kidney problems.
We thought to put together some tips for owners of (future) senior cats, so you know in advance where to pay attention to.
If you have a feline in the family who’s getting up in years, the good news is that many cats today are living into their late teens and early 20s. With the proper care, a cat in good health at 8 can easily live another 10 or 12 years, or even longer. Now is the perfect time to begin taking steps to ensure not only that your cat stays happy and healthy throughout her golden years, but that she also enjoys an excellent quality of life.

What's the relation between histamine and gluten intolerance?A short while ago, I was alerted to research that is being conducted on histamine intolerance. The reason it piqued my interest was the remark on how perceived gluten intolerance may in reality be a case of histamine intolerance. The researchers that were interviewed spoke about probiotics being developed to 'cure' histamine intolerance.
Therefore, without further ado, an explanation on what histamine intolerance really is.
What is histamine?Histamine is an extremely important bioactive chemical that is indispensable in the efficient functioning of many body systems. It is a neurotransmitter and is involved in the regulation of stomach acid, the permeability of blood vessels, muscle contraction, and brain function.
In humans, the highest histamine concentrations are found in the skin, lung, and stomach, with smaller amounts in the brain and heart.
Histamine is also essential in defending the body against invasion by potentially disease-causing agents such as bacteria, viruses and other foreign bodies.
Histamine is made and stored within white blood cells such as mast cells.
When the immune system is activated in response to foreign material entering the body, histamine is the first "defense chemical", or more correctly, inflammatory mediator released in the process called inflammation. Inflammation is the clinical evidence that the immune system is responding to a potential threat to the body. Histamine is always present when inflammation occurs, and excess histamine will result in symptoms that resemble inflammation.
In addition to its role in controlling vital body processes and defending against foreign invaders, histamine is a key mediator in the symptoms of an allergic reaction. Since allergy is essentially an inflammatory reaction, histamine, together with other protective inflammatory mediators is released in response to the allergen.
Allergens are components of living cells that in themselves are harmless, such as plant pollens, animal dander, mould spores, dust particles, dust mites, and foods. An allergic reaction to these "foreign but harmless" substances occurs when the immune system mistakes these innocuous materials for a potential threat.
Plastics in our bodyOnly fairly recently we have become aware of the dangers of plastics in our environment.
For a long time we thought these plastics would not be of any concern to us. However, invariably, most plastics end up somewhere in the environment: they sit at the bottom of the sea, mix into beach sand, and blow in the wind. They’re also inside us.
It's possible that humans may be consuming anywhere from 39 to 52 thousand microplastic particles a year. With added estimates of how much microplastic might be inhaled, that number is more than 74 thousand.
People who drink only bottled water ingest an additional 90 thousand particles.
When researchers from Johns Hopkins looked at the impact of eating seafood contaminated with microplastics, they too found the accumulated plastic could damage the immune system and upset a gut's balance.
Scientists are scrambling to understand the dose at which microplastics start to have noticeable health effects. Like air pollution or harmful construction materials, those who have more exposure or pre-existing conditions may be less able to tolerate plastic.
Zinc and HCQ
In the past few months, nearly everyone will have become familiar with the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and how it has been welcomed as a miracle drug, only to be set aside as being too dangerous to expose sick patients with underlying cardiovascular diseases to it.
Upon learning how HCQ is supposed to be used in this crisis, I was flabbergasted to read how HCQ was put to use by itself, as a drug on its own. True enough, HCQ is a malaria drug, but it was not just meant to be used as a curative medicin on its own for COVID-19 but as a messenger to transport the true miracle mineral, zinc into cells.
The now famous Zelenko protocol which uses HCQ , azithromycin and zinc as well as a number of other essential vitamins and minerals, was never meant to be used in hospital either, but for use by doctors on patients who had just fallen ill.
Now the researchers who discredited HCQ in the Lancet article have been debunked as having used fraudulous data in order to promote a much more expensive drug in which one of the authors had a vested interested, we think it is about time to explain a thing or two on why and how HCQ is used in combination with zinc.
Scoliosis, and kyphosis, how much does it influence your fitness level?
The leading personal trainer and researcher Brat Contreras, famous for his glute-building hip thrust exercise that earned him the title 'Glute Guy', made the following statement:
"In my experience as a personal trainer, it seems that the whole darn world is preoccupied with some sort of perceived imbalance, anatomical anomaly, or dysfunction that they've been made aware of by a prior trainer, physical therapist, chiropractor, doctor, or manual therapist. The vast majority of individuals come to me and warn me right away about their gluteal amnesia, or leg length discrepancy, or pelvic torsion, or tight hip flexors.
VITALS recommends to take one capsule 3 times a day with a meal during the first 2 months You may also just take 2 capsules in the morning and one capsule at night.
Most will notice an improvement within 2 weeks. However VITALS recommends to use it for 2 entire months in order to get the optimum effect of PEA PUre.
From that moment on it becomes more obvious whether you should continue using PEA Pure.
When the result has been to satisfaction, most will be able to take a smaller dose of 1 capsule twice a day.
After 4 months you may consider to
• continue using one capsule twice a day
• diminish intake further to one capsule once a day
• stop using PEA Pure altogether
When you experience a negative effect from lowering the dose, increase it again to either twice or 3 times a day.
