Healing an injury with BPC 157

Injuries and weightlifting go hand-in-hand. If you have been weightlifting or doing any form of exercise for quite some time, you have most likely encountered an injury or two, if not I envy you. Are there ways we can pharmaceutically speed up the healing process for injuries? Let me introduce you to BPC 157 (Body Protection Compound 157).

First discovered in the 90s, it is a peptide (smaller protein) that is found in our stomachs. It is still in early phases of development but studies on animals have shown that it aids in healing of skin, bone, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Mechanisms of action are still not yet known but some theories suggest it increases growth hormone receptor density in tissues and by stimulating a growth factor that allows new blood vessels to be made near the site of injury.

It is well known by bodybuilders and athletes even though it is not approved for human use. Many in the community say this peptide is one of the strongest healing drugs to exist. The reason this drug is so popular is that it can heal injuries from years ago that still might impact the individual and not just recent injuries.

Other functions of BPC 157 found in animal studies include its ability to heal stomach ulcers, liver tissue protection, heals lung tissue after injury and helps with recurrent nose bleeds. There are many more functions such as healing tendon injuries, healing cut muscle tissue and more.

Are there side effects?
Data is limited. There has only been one human study known thus far. However, users have not reported any side effects. Anecdotal reports on forums include temporary anxiety or depression whilst on this compound. This is a research compound and thus not everything is known as of yet.

How is it used?
It can either be injected subcutaneously (into fat) or intramuscularly (into muscle) or it can even be taken orally since it is not denatured by stomach acid. Doses of between 200 to 300 micrograms are used either once or twice a day. It tends to be used for a cycle of 2 to 4 weeks. If the injury is still not healed after the cycle, then it may be used again after time off (2 to 4 weeks). When taken for an ulcer users report using 250 micrograms orally before breakfast and 250 micrograms in the evening.

This is everything that is known about BPC 157 thus far.
