BPC-157

BPC-157 is a fascinating peptide. It is a fifteen amino acid peptide originally derived from gastric juice secretions. It was named BPC-Body Protection Compound for its many actions, including its ability to accelerate the healing of many different types of damaged body tissues, including tendons and ligaments.

It also was found to act to prevent and treat ulcers of the stomach and combat digestive tract pain and cramping, relieve constipation and act as anti-inflammatory for the gut lining healing “leaky gut”.

BPC-157 GASTROINTESTINAL BENEFITS

Over the years clinicians have used BPC-157 for a variety of different gastrointestinal disorders.  It is able to be given as an oral treatment for GI problems because it is enzymatically stable in gastric juice after ingestion. Its many benefits seemingly come from the improved functioning of the gut-brain axis-the crucial connection between the gastrointestinal tract, the nervous system, and the immune system.

It is used for:

  • Inflammatory bowel syndrome
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Leaky gut syndrome
  • Acid reflux
  • Ulcers
  • Chronic constipation or diarrhea
  • Malabsorption

It also helps to protect the liver from the insults of alcohol and medications.

 

PAIN RELIEF

Joint, Ligament and Tendon problems

Individuals who are suffering from muscle sprains, tears, and damage can benefit from treatment with this unique peptide.

According to a scientific review published by the National Library of Medicine, “All studies investigating BPC 157 have demonstrated consistently positive and prompt healing effects for various injury types, both traumatic and systemic and for a plethora of soft tissues.”

BPC-157 Promotes the production of collagen and fibroblasts both of which are integral to the structure of your tendons, joints, and muscles. Collagen and fibroblasts fulfill many of the same functions as BPC 157. Although available and effective as an oral agent for the GI  tract, BPC is preferentially recommended as an injectable treatment for musculoskeletal purposes.

In addition to repairing damage to muscles and joints, BPC 157 also helps them to recover faster. BPC 157 is currently banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency governing Olympic and World Championship sports events. This can only ad credibility to the scientific body of knowledge that supports the help it will give to those who want to enhance the performance of their musculoskeletal system.

 

  • Upon entering your body, BPC 157 promotes tissue repair by activating growth factors and the types of cells that perform these repairs.
  • BPC promotes the synthesis of nitric oxide-this increases blood flow and decreases muscle soreness.
  • By reducing pain and inflammation BPC 157 helps an athlete to accomplish faster return of their muscle, joint, and tissue optimal functioning.
  •  BPC-157 helps to promote growth factor synthesis, which supports healing and recovery and underlies its ability and use in enhancing the results of PRP and stem cell treatments.

 

BPC-157 is helpful in improving immune system functioning. It decreases inflammatory mediators such as leukotrienes. Thus, BPC-157 is used for the pain and inflammation of arthritis and fibromyalgia

Angiogenesis

Angiogenesis is one of the most important processes in the human body. It  creates new red blood cells necessary to carry oxygen throughout the tissues. Therefore, by promoting the growth and production of red blood cells, BPC 157 may encourage faster healing, recovery, and overall health. Angiogenesis might also help with wound healing that involves if you have tears of tissues, strains, and  bruises

Via its actions in angiogenesis, and vasculogenesis, BPC-157 aids the results of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and stem cell treatment healing.

Experimentally it has been shown to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon to bone healing and healing of damaged ligaments. It also seems to protect organs, and heals and prevents ulcers of the stomach. This peptide has also been shown to reduce pain in areas of damaged tissue, lessening the need for narcotic type medications.

According to a scientific article published by the national Library of Congress BPc-157 accelerates the healing from Alkali burns. They state, “Chemical burns take up a high proportion of burns admissions and can penetrate deep into tissues. Various reagents have been applied in the treatment of skin chemical burns; however, no optimal reagent for skin chemical burns currently exists.”

 Their scientific review investigated the effect of topical body protective compound (BPC)-157 treatment on skin wound healing.  They found that “Topical treatment with BPC-157 was shown to accelerate wound closure following an alkali burn.”

Given all that BPC-157 can do it will undoubtedly remain a go-to peptide in the treatment of some of the most common ailments facing patients and their physicians.
