BPC-157 peptide has no direct effect. It is all about signaling!
BPC-157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protective compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from the human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. Also, BPC-157 seems to protect organs and to prevent ulcers of the stomach. This peptide is also shown to decrease pain in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues.
Peptides are amino acid sequences that are synthetically made to mimic hormones or neurotransmitters in the body. They are not drugs so therefore lack side effects and interactions. They give the body back a communication signal that it needs for certain functions. BPC-157 gives the body back a repair signal that it needs and it works by stimulate repair mechanisms. It allows inflammation but not so much so that you get swelling that impairs healing. It can be used pre, peri and post operatively to improve healing after a surgery.
