BPC 157 (5mg)
BPC-157 is a small peptide made up of 15 amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. The peptide is derived from a portion of body protection compound (BPC) that is produced naturally by cells found in the stomach . The discovery that the peptide demonstrated strong organ protective and direct cell protection lead to it being developed further . Additional studies later revealed that treating with BPC-157 results in the healing of many different tissues, including skin, muscle, tendon, ligament and bone in animal studies [3-6]. Further experiments also showed significant differences between BPC-157-treated and untreated animals and highlighted that a strong, promoting involvement of BPC in the healing process was achieved through multiple biological pathways. BPC-157-treated animals grew significantly more new blood vessels when compared to controls, which shows that the peptide positively influences the healing process by stimulating angiogenesis in damaged tissue .
