BPC 157 Peptide

BPC 157 peptide is a 15 amino acid partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that was discovered in and isolated from human gastric juices.  It has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments.


BPC 157 naturally occurs in our gastric juices in the gut and accelerates the repair and renewal of the intestinal tract. Since our intestines are under a lot of pressure and constantly working to repair damage, BPC 157 does a fantastic job of keeping everything running smoothly by regenerating cells of intestine walls and endothelium, preventing ulcers, stabilizing microbiome, and controlling blood vessel functioning.


BPC 157 interacts directly with Nitric Oxide (NO) pathway, regulating blood vessel functioning, but also promoting key growth factors. The primary mechanism of NO mediated wound healing is the formation of new blood vessels in a process called angiogenic repair. That means that more oxygen and energy can be delivered to injured spot to increase healing and recovery. BPC 157 promotes angiogenesis and the production of angiogenic cytokines like VEGF, TGF-b, and FGF.  BPC 157 upregulates the Anti-Inflammatory Gene Transcription Factor, and Growth Hormone receptors, all leading to better systemic repair response. 

BPC 157 also stimulates the growth and spread of fibroblasts, which are vital for the formation of a structural protein of your skin, bones, and connective tissue, called collagen.
