PT 141 (bremelanotide) is an innovative new peptide hormone treatment that helps men and women revitalize their sex life by reducing sexual dysfunction caused by lowered libido. It is a form of the melanocortin family that was originally developed as a tanning agent, but triggered sexual arousal and spontaneous erections in nine out of ten volunteer male testers during the earliest testing.
Unlike drugs such as Cialis or Viagra that open blood flow through the vascular system to create an erection, PT-141 binds to the melanocortin receptors MC1R and MC4R on the nervous system and triggers arousal and sexual desire by triggering the release of dopamine. This is a far more effective way of treating sex issues than simply opening up blood vessels and creating an erection, which often leads to the undesirable side effects of erectile dysfunction, such as headaches and nausea.
The peptide also stimulates the hypothalamus, which regulates appetite and metabolism. As such, it can also reduce weight by suppressing the appetite and increasing satiety, which causes people to eat less. As a result, PT-141 has been clinically demonstrated to be an effective treatment for HSDD in premenopausal women by promoting lower caloric intake and resulting in weight loss.
