Endocannabinoid System

P.E.A.k Relief

By Dr. Traj Nibber The endocannabinoidome (eCBome) is a broader and more appropriate term than the old endocannabinoid system (ECS), and incorporates the more recent research into this fascinating area. What is the eCBome Briefly, eCBome is a protective, and communication network that exists all over the body, and interacts with hormonal, nervous, immune, endocrine, microbiome, and other systems of the body. The eCBome plays a major role in the health of many organs of the body including; the reproductive system in both males and females, hormonal system, kidneys, liver, gut microbiome, heart and circulatory system, nervous system, skin among

The Mighty Molecule: The Role of PEA in the Endocannabinoid System

Definitions PEA (N-palmitoylethanolamide): an endogenous fatty acid amide synthesized and metabolized by cells that bind to cell receptors. It influences a multitude of physiological functions and has potent effects for a healthy inflammatory response and helps to relieve minor discomfort. Endocannabinoid System: A lipid communication network that has critical physiological functions and serves a vital purpose for our health and well-being through signaling processes, homeostasis and hormone regulation. Lipids and the ECS In 1929, scientists George Oswald Burr and his wife, Mildred Burr, discovered that omega 6 fatty acids were essential for health. This kicked off science’s interest into lipids, and

The Endocannabinoid System (ECS): What is it, what does it do and Why Do I Need to Know?

The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is another level of security, a defence system that the body layers onto the existing security organization that is keeping us safe, whilst making sure checks and balances are in place. The ECS is a vast signalling network that communicates with other well-known systems including the nervous, immune, hormonal or the endocrine, and other networks, but also some that are rather more obscure, like the lymphatic or the enteric nervous system sometimes called the “second brain”. The ECS’s job is relaying important and timely information between these systems, but it also primes and prepares the body
