For the purposes of getting straight to the point, Peptides are a sequence of amino acids. The use of Peptides, is a fascinating medical breakthrough for patients who are interested in the benefits of optimized health including, fat loss and anti-catabolic muscle tissue enhancement, anti-aging, immune health, gut healing, cardiovascular and neuroprotective health, and various types of tissue repair, including rapid connective tissue injury rehabilitation and post-surgery recovery.
As we age, it can become more challenging to maintain optimized health. The older we get, the more important it becomes for us to be proactive caretakers of your bodies. If we are avid exercisers, there’s a very good chance that our bodies have also experienced some physical trauma along the way. From exercise and healthy eating to emotional trauma and dealing with the typical stress of life, we want to do all we can to allow our bodies to heal and maintain ideal health. It’s up to you, to take action and do what you can to bring healing and health to your body.
BPC-157 is a peptide that confers cellular protection and healing properties upon those who take it. Comprised of 15 amino acids, BPC 157 is named after the body protection compound that was first discovered and subsequently isolated from human gastric fluid.
While BPC-157 is traditionally touted for its extraordinary muscular and tendon healing properties, it has also found niche applications outside of the musculoskeletal system. Indeed, BPC-157 has seen applications in the gastrointestinal system as well. After all, BPC-157 is isolated from gastric juices produced by the mucosal cells which line the human stomach.
BPC-157 also functions as an anti-ulcer agent and is stable in gastric juice. A recent review conducted in 2016 showed that BPC-157 has healing potential in lesions of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and pancreas.
Poor gut health can lead to a number of diseases and can negatively impact the health of your immune system, heart, brain, etc. BPC-157 has therapeutic applications in systemic diseases which affect the whole gastrointestinal tract, such as inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome and “leaky gut” syndrome. The “gut”, is one of the most complex areas of your body and has a tremendous impact on whole body health.
BPC-157 has also exhibited neuroprotective properties. This is highly relevant in the 21stcentury, where stroke and nerve damage due to chronic diabetes mellitus are rife in developed countries. Peripheral nerve regeneration has been observed after treatment with BPC-157 in the context of traumatic brain injury, spinal cord compression and demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
