What is BPC – 157?
BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that was discovered in human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and damaged ligaments. In addition, BPC 157 seems to protect organs and to prevent ulcers of the stomach. This peptide is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.
What does it do?
The BPC, in BPC – 157, stands for Body Protecting Compound. Your body already makes it in small amounts in your own gastric juices, where it protects and heals your gut. If you can get the super concentrated version and get it into your system, it has an extremely high level of biological healing activity just about anywhere you put it. It can cause an anabolic healing effect in both the lower and upper gastrointestinal (GI) tract, it has an antiulcer effect, and it produces a therapeutic effect on inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). As demonstrated in research studies, BPC – 157 also accelerates the healing of wounds, and through interaction with Nitric Oxide (NO) system, causes protection of endothelial tissue and an angiogenic (blood vessel building) wound healing effect.
Researchers have been doing more and more tests to be sure that BPC – 157 truly helps in healing processes without and adverse side effects to the body. BPC – 157 is of great interest in the world of bodybuilders. It has the potential to heal damaged joints and muscles, to enable a quick recovery, and is perfect for those who do high intensity exercises.
No adverse side effects have been reported.
