BPC-157: The Perfect Peptide for Pain, Inflammation, and GI Troubles

BPC-157: The Perfect Peptide for Pain, Inflammation, and GI Troubles

Whether you’re a bodybuilder, cross-trainer, gym-goer, yogi, or average joe, peptides help to build and repair the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage that get stressed during exercise. They are building blocks that makeup protein. When amino acids link together, the chain they form is called an amino-peptide. When peptides bind together, they become the basis for all protein. 

Peptides stimulate Human Growth Hormone (HGH) production, which has a healing and rejuvenating effect on bones, joints, and tissues. By the time we reach the age of 30, our HGH levels are only about 20% of their peak levels, and after the age of 30, they continue to decline at around 15% per decade.

Peptides work alongside the body to correct HGH deficiencies. The best part of peptide therapy is that it does not subject patients to the risk of excess growth hormone production. The effects of peptides are long-lasting, and support HGH production even after treatment has ended.

Over the course of several articles, we are introducing you to 6 powerful peptides people love.

Today’s spotlight: BPC-157

BPC-157 is a pentadecapeptide, composed of 15 amino acids, with a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from human gastric juice. It goes beyond the building and repairing of muscles.

Bye-Bye, Pain and Inflammation

This peptide has been known to exhibit analgesic characteristics or pain-relieving. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears, and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help to aid skin burns at a faster rate by increasing blood flow to damaged tissues. 

Patients with acute or chronic injuries, especially those with wounds, tendon, ligament, and muscle tears, have also found BPC-157 to be an effective treatment. Experimentally, BPC-157 has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing. It has also shown superior healing of damaged ligaments.

BPC-157 has also been successfully used for arthritis treatment.

This peptide may be right for you if you need to:

·      Relieve pain from muscle sprain, tears, or damage

·      Reduces acute/chronic pain and inflammation

·      Speeds up the healing process of wounds

·      Heal skin burns and damaged tissue

·      Improve flexibility

·      Increase muscular strength

·      Heal tendons, ligaments, and bones

·      Reverse systemic corticosteroid-impaired muscle healing

Settle Down, Stomach

Scientists recognize BPC-157 as a “stable gastric pentadecapeptide.”

BPC-157 acts systemically in the digestive tract making it a recommended peptide for patients suffering from many GI issues. It remarkably and efficiently combats leaky gut, IBS, gastrointestinal cramps, and Crohn's disease.

Also, this peptide has shown to protect organs and aids in the prevention of gastric ulcers. It can also heal intestinal anastomosis and short bowel syndrome. Those who are affected sufferers of bowel inflammation, diarrhea, constipation, and gut pain have found relief with BPC-157. These positive effects have been observed even in conditions that had reached advanced stages

This peptide may be right for you if you need to:

·      Combat a leaky gut, IBS, cramps, or Crohn’s disease

·      Prevent gastric ulcers

·      Heal intestinal anastomosis or short bowel syndrome

·      Stop bowel inflammation

·      Find relief from diarrhea, constipation or gut pain

A Development to Smile About

BPC-157 is also a new peptide candidate in the treatment of periodontal disease. Research indicates that the peptide can repair damaged teeth.

What are the Side Effects?

The best part is that BPC-157 doesn’t come with any adverse side-effects! 

So far, no side effects have been observed from the use of BPC-157. It has not shown any impact on hormones, blood pressure, or any heart conditions. If taking subcutaneously, there are always chances of irritation or soreness at the injection site. Although there have been reports of mild sickness or nausea among users, both effects were later attributed to being the result of the body acclimating itself to the peptide. BPC-157 is very safe and has incredible healing properties that positively affect the organs.

Before You Buy: What You Need to Know

The best way to source BPC-157 is through a medical professional who can prescribe a 100% pure product for human use. As with any online purchase, before you make a purchase, do your research.
