Mirica

Mirica

Mirica capsules are a daily supplement that claims to support a healthy immune response while protecting the nervous system. The official webpage for the product on the manufacturer’s website claims it is made exclusively with pharmaceutical-grade ingredients of the highest quality available. The manufacturer in question is a brand called Young Nutra.

What Are the Mirica Ingredients?

Mirica’s main ingredients are Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) – not to be confused with phenylethylamine, which is also sometimes shortened to PEA – and luteolin.  In fact, this product uses a brand name form of PEA called Levagen PEA.

What is Levagen PEA?

PEA is, according to the Young Nutra website, a biologically active, endogenous lipid.  It is synthesized on demand within the body and is widely distributed to its various tissues.  In medicine, it is indeed referred to as an analgesic, which is a form of painkiller.

The ingredient was first isolated back in 1957.  At that time, it was found as an egg yolk based anti-inflammatory substance.  Since the 1970s, it has been used for neuroprotective purposes as well as for its analgesic properties.

In terms of this ingredient’s use as a painkiller, research has shown that it can be helpful without the risk of serious side effects (excluding allergic reaction) up to 48 days.  Research beyond that point has been inadequate for drawing any conclusions.

What is Luteolin?

The other primary active ingredient in Mirica is luteolin. This is a substance that produces a range of different reactions within the body. For the purposes of this supplement, it is the ingredient’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and neuroprotective properties when used in conjunction with PEA that are the main focus.

The ingredients have both been shown to offer greater benefit to supplement users when taken in combination than when taken alone.

Are There Side Effects to Mirica?

The official website claims that Mirica is used without any side effects.  It states that no side effects have been reported in association with the use of PEA, though it does not specifically mention any results regarding the product as a whole.  That said, it did point out that the amount of luteolin is about the same as what would be found in an artichoke and that ingredient has also not been associated with side effects. The combination of the ingredients has not been tested for that purpose.

The official website is also careful to point that its manufacturing facilities for Mirica are GMP registered and FDA registered.  Though this sounds impressive, it is important to recognize that it means only that the minimum paperwork to legally operate those facilities has been completed and not that the FDA has inspected or improved of either the facility or the product.
