What is BPC-157
Known as the Body Protective Compound, BPC-157 is a peptide that is derived from human gastric juices. Because of its origin, it was initially used to renew and repair the intestinal tract. Peptides are a string of amino acids. A single amino acid may be impressive on its own, but when linked together in a chain-like sequence, amino acids are an indispensable part of the healing process. This peptide communicates with the body’s cells, telling them what they should become! This process is vital to proper body function. BPC-157 is only a small portion of the entire BPC protein and consists of 15 amino acids. Studies show it is powerful in the restoration and repair of intestinal walls, preventing ulcers, stabilizing microbiome, and proper function of blood vessels. This interaction is vital for the functions between the gut microbiome, nervous system, and immune system.
When scientists saw the healing properties of the BPC peptide, they wanted to test its capabilities beyond the digestive tract, and their findings were astonishing! Studies show that BPC-157 has the ability to aid in the healing process of many different types of tissue, such as tendons, muscles, and nervous system tissue. BPC-157 works by accelerating a process called Angiogenesis, which allows the formation of new blood vessels in place of old ones – a dynamic process for healing, due to the increased oxygen delivered to the site of the injury – resulting in a quicker recovery. In tendons, it promotes outgrowth and migration of tendon fibroblasts, which allows the tendon to repair and restore itself. This amazing peptide is also vital in the formation of collagen, which promotes healthy skin, bones, and connective tissue. BPC-157 is a great supplement option for the relief of joint pain and improve mobility because of its natural anti-inflammatory response.
How Do I Take BPC-157
There are several ways to take BPC-157, but they vary widely in their effectiveness. The most effective form of BPC-157 peptide is administered subcutaneously – which means it is injected below your skin. These are easily administered at home and is a more pain-free method to treat tendon, muscle, and ligament injuries. For athletes with more serious injuries, BPC can be injected intramuscularly, but this requires an office visit. It is the best way to achieve fast healing results, but this method is quite painful. If you’re not a big fan of needles, BPC-157 is available in capsules or liquid, however the effectiveness and results are not nearly as immediate as injections. BPC is also available in a nasal spray – which is primarily used in the treatment of allergies.
When Will I See/Feel Results
Of course, the timeliness of results will differ with each person. The method of administration and dosage are key factors that will directly affect the outcome. Higher doses will see more immediate results, especially with injections. Some benefits may be noticeable within a few days while others may not see results for two weeks or longer. You can also combine BPC-157 with other therapies to enhance results. It is important to note that BPC-157 is NOT a steroid.
What are the Benefits of BPC-157
- Improves digestive function
- Protects and heals inflamed intestinal epithelium (aka leaky gut)
- Helps improve symptoms of Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Accelerates wound healing (for tendons, ligaments, muscles, and nerve tissue)
- Powerful anti-inflammatory
- Protects the liver from toxins (alcohol, antibiotics, etc.) and promotes healing
- Maximize performance by increasing growth hormone receptors
