A natural medicine turns out to be better than medicine developed by the pharmaceutical industry!

During the 14th world congress on pain, late August 2012, professor Di Marzo, world famous pharmacologist specializing in pain, made a captivating plea. There were thousands of people in the audience, including doctors and pain specialists.

He presented new data proving the painkillers the pharmaceutical industry has developed over the last years, are less attractive than the natural pain reliever palmitoylethanolamide.

Vicenzo Di Marzo discussed information that proved that the new pharmaceutical medicines, meant to inhibit the enzyme FAAH, are too nonspecific. By inhibiting the FAAH enzyme not only do they have the desired effect of raising the levels of palmitoylethanolamide in the body, they also increase the level substances responsible for causing pain.
