Why BPC 157 Is The Healing Peptide

BPC 157 is a research peptide that is often called the "healing peptide." BPC stands for "body protecting compound." It is considered the most stable stable gastric pentadecapeptide. It is especially effective in the upper and lower GI tracts. The use of this peptide also produces no side effects. Read on to learn more about BPC 157 and who can potentially benefit from it.

What Is BPC 157

BPC 157 is a compound that already exists within the body's gastric juices. However, by taking a concentrated version of this compound and injecting it into other parts of the body, the compound can have very rapid healing properties. The benefits of this compound include:

  • The promotion of tendon and ligament healing
  • Better tendon-to-bone healing
  • Reversal of the damaging effects of pain medications in the gut
  • Restoration from damage caused by inflammatory bowel disease
  • Recovery from periodontitis
  • More rapid bone healing

Benefits For Ulcer Patients

One area where BPC 157 research is being conducted is anti-ulcer research. BPC 157 has been found to be effective in particular for those who have inflammatory bowel disease. It has been tested in Clinical phase II and has manifested a safe profile and wound-healing properties. It can also provide protection against endothelium. 

Benefits For Those Suffering From Depression Or Addiction

BPC 157 has also been shown to have positive effects on the mind. Those with BPC 157 have experienced a reduction in depression symptoms and have also found it easier to recover from addiction. 

Benefits For Gum Disease Patients

BPC 157 has anti-inflammatory properties, and it is believed that it can be used to help with the recovery from gingivitis and periodontitis. This can potentially allow for an alternative to treating gum disease in a dentist's office. 

Current Legality

BPC 157 is a research peptide and is not intended for human use yet. However, research into this compound could lead to the creation of exciting products in the future that would be helpful both to those who are suffering from various illnesses or injuries and from those who are trying to recover more quickly from a workout. 

Research has been conducted into the possible delivery mechanisms. This includes providing BPC 157 in an oral form and having the compound delivered through an injection. Both approaches have been found to have similar results, though the injection method allows for the product to be delivered directly to the site of the injury or illness.
