This article will cover the basics about what you need to know about BPC-157. The acronym BPC, which stands for “Body Protecting Compound,” while scientifically its molecular formula is C62H98N16O22, containing 62 atoms of carbon, 98 atoms of hydrogen, 16 atoms of nitrogen, and 22 atoms of oxygen.
BPC-157 is comprised of a peptide chain (a string of amino acids in a particular order) made up of 15 amino acids. BPC-157 originated from a particular protective stomach protein, however, it is regarded by most scientists as synthetic due to its unique peptide chain sequence which is not naturally occurring in nature.
BPC-157 got its name from its ability to quickly heal body injuries, ward-off fatigue of the central nervous system as a result of time-intensive exercise and retain an anabolic state post-workout.
A multitude of studies using BPC-157 were conducted by researchers on lab rats and showed that the peptides had a significant protective effect on the intestinal tract as well as the stomach. BPC-157 peptides also revealed a host of other benefits for stomach ulcers, fistulas, inflammatory conditions, plus improved healing of bones and joints.
Research on BPC-157, which began in 1991, has continued without any reported side effects. BPC-157 has been used in research studies for the repair of bones, intestines, muscles, teeth, tendons to name a few. The BPC studies have been performed in-vivo on human subjects and lab rats as well as in laboratory in-vitro. Moreover, test subjects were injected both subcutaneously and intramuscularly.
Health benefits of BPC-157 that were discovered during several studies, concluded that BPC-157 was:
Additionally, BPC-157, is known to be a stable form of gastric Penta decapeptide as a result of its stability in the gastric juice of humans, its anabolic healing properties for both the lower and upper gastrointestinal tract, a reversing effect on ulcers as well as healing properties for inflammatory bowel disease without any side effects.
Furthermore, research studies have shown that BPC-157 increases the rate of wound healing, and thru its reaction with the nitric oxide system, produces a protective effect of endothelial tissue. The wound healing effect produces results even in highly impaired conditions such as progressive irritable bowel disease. In these cases, BPC-157 increases the expression of genes in charge of cytokines, collagen formation, growth factor production and the repairing of the intestinal anastomosis, truly a blessing for people who suffer from bowel inflammation, constipation, diarrhea and gut pain.
If you’re wondering how much BPC-157 you should take, read on.
The majority of the research suggests a daily dose in the range between 1-10 mcg per kilogram of body weight to be most effective. For the average man, the dose runs between 200 mcg and 800 mcg. Some users of BPC-157 have claimed greater success by splitting the dose into twice per day.
BPC-157 performs systematically, meaning that regardless of whether you inject it or spray it in your mouth, the benefit will be the same. In the event that you choose to inject BPC-157 subcutaneously under the skin, aim as close as possible to the area of pain. This also applies if you choose to inject it intramuscularly. With oral administration, the key is to keep it in your mouth for 1.5 to 2 minutes before swallowing it.
According to many of the documented studies, BPC-157 can be safely taken continuously for a month or until symptoms improve. If the injury requires additional doses after the first month of dosing, cease taking BPC-157 for two weeks and then resume as needed with a break after every month for two weeks.
Research shows that BPC-157 works incredibly fast. Although it would depend on the severity of the condition and/or injury, results are often achieved in as little as 24-48 hours.
