BPC-157

BPC-157 is a naturally occurring peptide with significant benefits in tissue healing and gut repair.  BPC 157 originally gained popularity in veterinary medicine and is the most used peptide across the globe.  Even to date, its mechanism of action is not completely known and it has been found to have multiple sites of action.  BPC is considered a signaling agent and has no direct effect.  It promotes benefits through signaling pathways and up-regulating, or increasing, gene transcription.  What this means is that it activates other cells and processes to increase efficiency and effectiveness in the body, ultimately resulting in enhanced repair and healing.  BPC 157 occurs naturally and is isolated from gastric juice. It is highly stable, resistant to digestion and degradation, only increasing its appeal and utilization.  BPC-157 is available for use orally, topically, subcutaneous injection and intranasally.  When injected, patients see accelerated healing of wounds, increased tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments.  Orally, BPC acts systemically in the digestive tract to combat acid reflux, leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome, gastric ulcers and Crohn’s Disease.
