BPC-157 is a fairly new peptide that can dramatically accelerate the healing process of injuries, especially sports injuries. In most cases, the injury sustained by BPC-157 can be completely re-exposed even after healing. Even longstanding chronic injuries and pain can be effectively treated with BPC-157.
The most common types of injury in recreational sports are known to include bruises, sprains and strains, but it can also get worse and injure a tendon or a joint. Especially the ankle is one of the most frequently affected parts of the body. In the worst case one suffers a very painful hamstring. Depending on severity and individual level of training, an injury can more or less reduce the progress achieved. You may be out of action for weeks or months, you may be out of shape and the quality of life may be severely limited. Often, this can even cause depression.
BPC-157 is a peptide with a sequence of 15 amino acids. The structure of this peptide is related to the body’s own BPC peptides, which are found in the gastric juice and take over various protective and regulatory functions in the digestive system.
Initial examination of the effect of BPC-157 in the digestive system of experimental animals showed that the peptide has a very strong apositive effect in both acute and chronic types of inflammation. Furthermore, BPC-157 protects the so-called endothelium. This is the thin layer of cells covering the inside of all blood and lymph vessels. At this point, the strong angiogenic properties of the peptide also appear. Angiogenesis is the process of developing new blood vessels, such as when diversions have to be formed due to injury in order to continue to supply blood to the tissue. BPC-157 radically accelerates the course of angiogenesis.
Because of these effects, BPC-157 has undergone more extensive studies in experimental animals. Here, significantly more interesting properties of the peptide could be observed. Based on the involvement of the peptide in the new formation of blood vessels, the processes for the formation of so-called granulation in wounds were further investigated. This is the new tissue and tiny blood vessels that form on the surface of a wound during the healing process to form the backbone of the growing tissue and provide it with nutrients. BPC-157 significantly accelerated the formation of new blood vessels and granulation in experiments.
BPC-157 therefore has strong wound healing properties and supports the rapid regeneration of tissue on wounded body parts. In another attempt to evaluate the healing properties of BPC-157, the Achilles tendons of rats were severed. The injection of BPC-157 at the site of injury significantly accelerated the regeneration of the tendon tissue. The overall survival of cells in various wound traumas also increased with the administration of BPC-157. Similar accelerated healing properties could also be observed in rats whose quadriceps were severed.
Athletes in particular use the peptide BPC-157 as a novel and effective treatment for injuries sustained during sports or work-related injuries. In addition, it is successfully used to successfully treat injuries sustained by users many years ago, such as meniscal injuries.
Both subcutaneous and intramuscular injection is possible. The injection should be made about 1 to 2 cm away from the center of the injured site in order for the peptide to spread throughout the injury site. The usual dose is between 200 mcg and 500 mcg per injection, usually only once a day.
For very serious injuries, BPC-157 can also be injected twice a day. The maximum period of use is about 4 weeks.
There are no known harmful side effects when using BPC-157.
