Epithalamin is a peptide preparation from the pineal gland that stimulates the immune system. It stimulates production of thymosin-like compounds and thymic serum factor in splenocytes from splenectomized rats. Epithalamin is also a potent antioxidant that reduces lipid peroxidation. It also stimulates the enzyme CuZn superoxide dismutase. It has been shown to improve immune function and increase lifespan in rats and fruit flies.
In addition to up-regulating telomere length, epithalon has been shown to slow the aging process in human cells. Telomere elongation is important because it prevents the aging process and promotes indefinite cellular proliferation. Telomere lengthening also inhibits the growth of tumors, making epithalamin an important anti-aging treatment.
Epitalon is a synthetic version of the natural peptide Epithalamin. It enhances the body’s natural production of telomerase, which is essential for cell rejuvenation and cell regeneration. Epitalon has also been shown to reduce the risk of cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
Epitalon is a peptide composed of four amino acids. It was created by Russian professor Vladimir Khavinson who had studied the effects of peptide preparations on the aging process. Khavinson is currently the Director of the Institute of Bioregulation and Gerontology in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Epitalon is available as an injectable medication. The dosage ranges from five to ten mg per day. It is most commonly administered as a subcutaneous injection into the abdominal region.
