BPC 157

BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendons, muscles, nervous system and superior healing of damaged ligaments.

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.

Benefits of BPC 157:

  • Accelerated wound healing
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Has been shown to decrease pain in damaged areas
  • BPC 157 increases growth hormone receptors
  • Promotes the outgrowth of tendon fibroblasts, cell survival under stress, and the migration of tendon fibroblasts
  • Improves digestive function
  • Protects and heals inflamed intestinal epithelium (leaky gut)
  • It has also been shown to help in Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Protects liver from toxic insults (alcohol, antibiotics, etc) and promotes healing

Research:

Stable gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157 is an antiulcer peptidergic agent, safe in inflammatory bowel disease clinical trials and wound healing, stable in human gastric juice and has no reported toxicity. Notably, it has a prominent effect on alcohol lesions (i.e., acute, chronic) and NSAIDs-lesions (interestingly, BPC 157 both prevents and reverses arthritis)… and acts as a free radical scavenger and exhibits neuroprotective properties.
