GHK Copper (glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine-copper(II) complex) is a naturally occurring peptide found in the human plasma and saliva. It has a high affinity for copper ions. It is known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It is a powerful tissue defender and an anti-inflammatory agent that controls the oxidative damage that happens after tissue injury. It also plays a major role in signaling tissue remodeling that eliminates damaged/scarred tissue and generates new healthy tissue.
It has been shown to improve the wound healing process by stimulating blood vessel formation, nerve outgrowth, glycosaminoglycan synthesis and cell differentiation, as well as increasing skin elasticity. It is also a potent antioxidant and enhances the activity of Cu, Zn superoxide dismutase in cells. It also suppresses genes that promote the formation of malignant melanoma, and can even reset the DNA in our cells back to its healthier state.
In the scalp, ghk copper has been shown to stimulate hair growth by promoting collagen production which is the foundation of each individual hair follicle. This allows the hair follicles to be stronger and more resilient over time. It also increases the flow of blood into the follicles by dilating capillaries, which then provides a better nourishing environment for the hair follicle to grow healthy and thick.
