Peptides and Hormones
At Denver Sports Recovery, we take pride in offering the most cutting edge care to people of all ages and fitness levels in the Denver area. That’s why we’re excited to now be taking advantage of recent research to offer peptide and hormone treatments, specifically BPC 157. This can be effective for both acute and chronic injuries. We hope this information will help you decide if BPC 157 is right for you!
What is BPC 157?
BPC stands for body protection compound. BPC 157 is a partial sequence of BPC. Made up of 15 amino acids, BPC 157 is found in small amounts in gastric juices in the human stomach. Studies of this peptide have suggested it may have a wide range of benefits that could include increasing healing, reducing inflammation, and improving organ function. Peptides and hormones are an important part of our bodies, and BPC 157 is one of the most promising peptides discovered to date.
How Do Peptides Help?
Peptides are essentially “building blocks” of protein, and they play an important role in cell growth and repair. When we sustain an injury, our bodies release these peptides to help with the healing process. Peptides send messages telling cells what to do such as grow, die, or repair themselves.
Peptides are found all over the body in every tissue, including the brain, muscles, skin, hair, gut, and immune system. There are many different types of peptides with different functions. Peptides can be naturally occurring, meaning they are found in the body, or synthetic, meaning they are man-made in a laboratory. Peptides and hormones are becoming more popular treatment options as research into their effects continues.
What Does BPC 157 Do?
BPC 157 has a few different mechanisms of action, but the most well-studied is its ability to promote the growth of new blood vessels. This is important because when we injure ourselves, blood flow to the area is often impaired. This can lead to a delay in healing and a greater risk of re-injury. BPC 157 seems to help overcome this by stimulating the growth of new blood vessels, which improves blood flow and speeds up the healing process.
What Types of Injuries is BPC 157 Used For?
In experiments, BPC 157 has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including tendons, muscles, the nervous system, and damaged ligaments. 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.
BPC 157 is believed to have many other benefits for various parts of the body, including:
- Cognitive performance
- Joint health
- Serotonergic transport system
- Dopaminergic system
- GABAergic system
Whether from a chronic condition or recent injury, BPC 157 shows great promise in helping people find relief. BPC 157 is an exciting new treatment that we are proud to add to our comprehensive options to help your body recover quickly!
