OptiPEA® is the only palmitoylethanolamide product worldwide manufactured in accordance with stringent Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines. Only reputable companies work with these strict guidelines that are normally used in the pharmaceutical industry. This makes OptiPEA® both safe and effective. In addition, our production facility also has ISO 9001, RSPO and Control Union certificates.
Palmitoylethanolamide with full documentation on file
One can only assess the quality of raw materials on the basis of an up to date and complete product file. Such a file should not only include a certificate of analysis. Just as important are the origin, quality certificates of the production facility, and product characteristics. Our ultrasensitive and custom-developed analytic procedures enable us to characterize the complete composition of OptiPEA® to the smallest detail, ensuring that we know every aspect of our raw material. Quality is key: we have even developed a special soap to clean our equipment.
Palmitoylethanolamide is a wax-like substance with a natural tendency to form lumps. The crystallization of OptiPEA® during one of the final production steps enhances its biological and product technical features. In order to further optimize OptiPEA® we also make sure that there is a good particle dispersion and fineness to the powder. This benefits the bioavailability and formulation processes.
Palmitoylethanolamide made with sustainable palmitic acid
One of the starting material compounds used in making palmitoylethanolamide originates in the palm industry. Because we believe responsibility and sustainability are very important, we use raw materials from sustainable palm cultivation. We have a Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certificate to demonstrate our commitment.
Palmitoylethanolamide designed exclusively for use in food supplements
Almost all currently available products use palmitoylethanolamide from the Asian chemical industry. This palmitoylethanolamide is produced without any regulations on quality, hygiene or food safety. This is hardly surprising, as it was never intended for human consumption. Unlike all other palmitoylethanolamide products, OptiPEA® is manufactured specifically and exclusively for use in food supplements.
Because palmitoylethanolamide is often used for extended periods of time, this is very important to know. Fluctuations in quality affect the effectiveness and contaminations are potentially very dangerous. Because palmitoylethanolamide is also used in the treatment of serious medical conditions, and may or may not be taken in combination with prescription medication, we strongly recommend against using palmitoylethanolamide supplements that do not have the OptiPEA® logo on the packaging.
