BPC 157 is a peptide that works by promoting angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels). This process is very important to the body’s ability to heal wounds and is essential to any kind of tissue repair.
It also stimulates fibroblasts, the cells responsible for producing the extracellular matrix proteins that make up skin, bones and connective tissues like ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Fibroblasts help to produce collagen and reticulin, two protein components that are vital to the healing of wounds and other soft tissues.
Increases Nitric Oxide, Improves Digestive Function and Enhances Vascular Expression of VEGFR2
It has been shown to increase nitric oxide and stimulate the production of digestive enzymes, which is very important for a healthy digestive tract. It also helps to upregulate anti-inflammatory gene transcription factors and growth hormone receptors, all of which contribute to better systemic repair.
Improves Joint Mobility and Boosts Recovery From Injury
This peptide is known to relieve pain, improve movement and speed up the healing of many different types of injuries. It has been found to increase blood flow to tendons and ligaments, help improve collagen production and aid skin burns to heal faster.
Pregnant Individuals Should Not Use It
As with any peptide, you should work closely with a certified practitioner who knows how to safely take these substances. It can be a good idea to start with a lower dose or combine it with a peptide that primes your immune system, such as Thymosin Alpha-1.
