BPC-157 is a peptide that is under investigation for its therapeutic effects. It was originally isolated from a protein found in human gastric juice and is taken orally or by injection. BPC-157 is believed to work by activating the body's natural healing processes. It is thought to stimulate the release of molecules that promote the growth of new cells and tissue, as well as the production of substances that protect against inflammation and tissue damage.
BPC-157 injections can have several benefits, including:
Faster healing from injuries, especially in tendons, ligaments, and bone
Enhanced action circulating growth hormone
Reduction in pain, swelling, and inflammation
Stimulated growth of new blood vessels
Faster post-operative healing
When used for healing and recovery, BPC-157 has been shown to work exceptionally well when used in combination with the peptide combination CJC-1295 + Ipamorelin. This is thought to be due to BPC-157's tendency to increase the concentration of growth hormone receptors in damaged tissues. Therefore, increased levels of circulating growth hormone could accelerate the healing process exactly where the body needs it most.
When taken by mouth in capsule form, BPC-157 can reduce gut inflammation and promote healing of the gut lining. This may be especially beneficial to individuals living with Crohn’s Disease, diverticulitis, and ulcerative colitis. It has also been shown to protect against gastric ulcers. Notably, those who have recently undergone a colonoscopy (especially with polyp removal) or gastric bypass surgery may benefit from oral BPC-157's ability to promote healing.
