It’s an exciting time in the world of complementary medicine with scientific developments and innovative natural ingredients helping with the key health needs of everyday people. From PEA to EGCG, we’ll review the cutting edge, evidence-based, next generation ingredients making waves in health.


PEA (Palmitoylethanolamide)

PEA, or palmitoylethanolamide, is a fatty acid molecule naturally produced in the body and also found in animals and some plants. PEA is naturally created by the body in response to pain and inflammation, helping to reduce the over-activation of inflammatory activity and switch off pain signals. PEA is also important for healthy nerve function. When people experience chronic nerve pain and inflammatory conditions, they get stuck in a pain cycle, and the body’s natural levels of PEA may be lowered and not be sufficient enough to have an effect. Taking a high-strength, bioavailable PEA supplement like Ethical Nutrients Clinical Nervalgesic to boost the body’s levels, may help to relieve mild nerve pain and reduce associated inflammation. It combines the power of PEA with vitamin B1 and saffron extract to support healthy nerve function and help break the cycle of pain. Ethical Nutrients Clinical Nervalgesic Muscle combines PEA with highly absorbable magnesium for analgesic pain relief and neuromuscular support, reducing mild nerve pain and muscle spasms.


SPMs (Specialised Pro-Resolving Mediators)

SPMs, or specialised pro-resolving mediators, are a class of recently identified, naturally-occurring lipid mediators that play a crucial role in switching off the body’s inflammatory response. In conditions with ongoing inflammation, the body might not be able to produce enough SPMs to resolve the inflammatory process.

Taking a high strength, bioavailable SPM supplement, like Ethical Nutrients Clinical SPM Resolvin, may help to support the body’s natural resolution process and encourage sustained active health.


ERr 731 (Rheum Rhaponticum)

ERr 731, or Rheum rhapontocum, is a unique rhubarb extract specifically researched to relieve a wide range of common menopause and perimenopause symptoms. Through selective activation of oestrogen beta receptors in the body, ERr 731 may reduce the occurrence of hot flushes and support a healthy libido.  ERr 731 (a.k.a Siberian rhubarb) is only found in Ethical Nutrients Clinical Estrovera, and is an option for women looking to manage their menopause symptoms with an innovative plant-derived alternative.  


EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate)

EGCG, or epigallocatechin gallate, is a unique plant compound, or catechin, derived from green tea. It is well known for its antioxidant effects and may help modulate the body’s immune responses. Ethical Nutrients Clinical NexGen Immune is a triple action formula that combines the effects of EGCG with highly regarded, immune-influencing actives including vitamin C, vitamin D3, reishi mushroom, zinc and astragalus. Designed to build immune resilience, fight common cold infection symptoms and ensure a healthy recovery from illness. This next generation immune combination strengthens the body’s immune defences while addressing other factors that affect immune health, including stress and key nutrient intake. Reishi may help fight infection via antigen recognition, astragalus may assist with stress and recovery, vitamins C and D may build immune resilience and zinc and EGCG from green tea may offer intracellular protection.


The Ethical Nutrients Clinical range is a practitioner only medicine. Please consult with a healthcare professional to ensure it is right for you.
