Oleoylethanolamine (OEA) is an endogenous peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPAR-α) agonist that may possess homeostatic properties such as control of appetite, anti-inflammatory activity, stimulation of lipolysis and fatty acid oxidation.
Oleoylethanolamide (OEA) is a lipid that binds the α-type peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR-α), which helps the body absorb, store, and use fat. Researches been conducted to investigate its potential in appetite control and fight obesity. Results have shown that when the PPAR-α receptor is activated in the intestines of rats, the animals consume less food and it shows that both injections and oral intake of OEA causes a reliable reduction in the amount of food eaten.
What is Oleoylethanolamide?
Oleoylethanolamine (OEA) is an endogenous peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPAR-α) agonist. It is a naturally occurring ethanolamide lipid produced in the body, usually found in the intestines. OEA can regulate the energy homeostasis and appetite mainly by activation of various receptors including proximal proliferator-activated receptor-α (PPAR-α), G-protein-coupled receptor 119 (GPR119) and transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V (TRPV1). OEA activates these receptors and delays meal initiation, reduces meal size, decreases intervals between meals and finally modulates body weight.
Oleoylethanolamide Benefits and Uses
Studies have shown that Oleoylethanolamide may support the following processes:
- Supports a healthy appetite and weight control
- Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant
- Supports a healthy metabolism
Additional Information on Oleoylethanolamide
Oleoylethanolamide (OEA), an endocannabinoid like-compound, is a lipid that binds the α-type peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR-α), which helps the body absorb, store, and use fat. It is produced in the small intestine and regulates feeding and body fat in vertebrates. Preclinical studies have shown that OEA is a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compound that exerts neuroprotective effects in alcohol abuse.
