Bpc 157 Benefits
This research peptide accelerates healing, increases blood flow to damaged tissue, balances systemic inflammation and relieves pain. It is derived from a body protection compound (BPC) found in human stomach digestive juices and is used to treat stomach ulcers, fistulas, inflammatory disorders and enhance bone and joint repair.
It also stimulates the release of growth hormone secretagogues to help with muscle growth and recomposition, promote fat loss and burn calories, as well as reduce visceral (internal) fat storage in the liver, heart and gut. It also helps with balancing the brain-gut axis and restores dopaminergic function to improve cognitive health.
Taking it orally is also helpful, as it increases blood flow to the intestines and reduces inflammation. It’s best to take this peptide with a sound nutrition and training program.
The most popular use of this peptide is to heal muscle and ligament injuries, such as tennis elbow and hamstring damage. There are some reports that it can also restore dopaminergic function in the brain and increase sensitivity to stimulants.
It should be noted that there is a lot of anecdotal evidence that BPC-157 can cause mast cell and histamine intolerances, so it’s best to work with a practitioner who can prime the immune system to avoid these problems before you take it.
Aside from that, peptides are not one size fits all, so you should consult with an experienced practitioner to determine what peptide type, dose & program is right for you. It is important to understand that peptides are not FDA regulated in the same manner as pharmaceuticals, so you should never begin taking them without first consulting with your doctor or licensed medical professional.
