PEA + Luteolin

Luteolin is a bioflavonoid with potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.  It is naturally occurring in many foods including; artichoke, celery, parsley and peanuts. 

Like PEA, luteolin has several mechanisms of action. It inhibits mast cells, as well as mast cell-dependent T cell activation. Luteolin modulates microglial activation and inhibits pro-inflammatory cytokine production. [1] It also acts on GABA and opioid receptors in the spinal cord.* [2]

The combination of PEA with luteolin has been shown to decrease mast cell activation significantly more than PEA or luteolin alone, and to reduce pro-inflammatory cytokines (TNF-alpha, IL-1 beta, IL-6) and chemokines (MIP-1 alpha, MIP-2) significantly more than PEA or luteolin alone. Additionally, PEA with luteolin was shown to reduce oxidative and nitrosative damage more effectively than PEA or luteolin alone.* [3]
