BPC-157: Benefits and Uses of The Wolverine

In this article, we will discuss the wolverine-like healing peptide: BPC-157.

If you are a beginner to Peptide Therapy then you can view our Peptide Therapy introduction guide and also book a consultation with us to learn more about Peptide Therapy.

So, let’s get started on our discussion into the world’s most popular peptide BPC-157.

15 amino acids

What Is BPC-157 Peptide?

BPC-157 is a peptide that consists of 15 amino acids in a sequence of Gly-Glu-Pro-Pro-Pro-Gly-Lys-Pro-Ala-Asp-Asp-Ala-Gly-Leu-Val.

BPC-157 is derived from a gastroprotective protein called “body protecting compound”, hence why it’s called BPC for short.

Body protecting compound is isolated from human gastric juice.

BPC-157’s main benefit is that it can enhance your body’s natural healing processes and thereby speed up the rate of recovery from an injury.

How does BPC-157 do this? By improving angiogenesis AKA BPC-157 helps your body create new blood vessels. 

The formation of new blood vessels then improves blood flow in wounded, hypoxic and damaged areas.

BPC-157 also increases upregulation of critical healing factors such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).

Does BPC-157 Have Any Side Effects or Risks?

BPC-157 is a great peptide for any beginner learning about Peptide Therapy. Why? Because no adverse or negative reactions have been reported in the trials conducted on humans with BPC-157.

Furthermore, when you look at the animal studies, again no adverse effects have been documented.

What Are The Benefits of BPC-157?

BPC-157’s benefits lie largely in its ability to accelerate the healing of many different wounds.

For example, BPC-157 has been proven to dramatically speed up the healing of tendons through the outgrowth of tendon fibroblasts. 

BPC-157 can also be used on very specific tendons, and has shown great promise in healing detached or disjointed Achilles tendons. 

But it’s not just tendons, if you are suffering from pain due to muscle sprains, tears, damage or even just a heavy gym workout, then BPC-157 is the peptide to get your hands on.

In this study, the researchers found that BPC-157 can even heal a quadriceps muscle that has been torn and crushed. 

The research shows that BPC-157 helps all muscle tears recover much faster.

BPC-157 also works fantastically for bone healing, and although the study was in rabbits, the researchers proved that BPC-157 led to significant improvements in the healing of bone wounds and fractures. 

BPC-157 has even shown amazing feats in healing spinal cord injuries in rats and consequently restored function. 

BPC-157 isn’t only limited to tendons and bones, but also ligaments. 

Acute ligament injuries within rats healed after BPC-157 use: 

“The rats exhibited consistent functional, biomechanical, macroscopic and histological healing improvements”.

Can BPC-157 Help Brain Function?

Of course, BPC-157 isn’t limited to repairing the body, but is also a neuroprotective compound, allowing for regeneration of vital brain nerves and protecting neurons from damage.

BPC-157 has been shown to reverse damage induced by a traumatic brain injury.

Can BPC-157 Protect Organs?

Certainly, BPC-157 has shown a wide variety of protective effects on the organs.

In human trials BPC-157 was found to heal stomach ulcers and prevent further gastric ulcers.

Does BPC-157 Reduce Inflammation?

BPC-157 is truly remarkable and can work to reduce your systemic inflammation.

BPC-157 upregulates anti-inflammatory factors, while also reducing the production of reactive oxygen species. 

Does BPC-157 Increase Blood Flow?

As stated in the first few sentences of this article, one of the main mechanisms that allows BPC-157 to regenerate you like the Wolverine is its ability to induce angiogenesis.

How Does BPC-157 Work To Reduce Disease?

BPC-157 is a cytoprotective compound, meaning that it can protect cells from foreign and harmful agents.

When we place BPC-157 in the context of the digestive system we can see incredible changes. 

For example BPC-157 can:

  1. Heal Leaky Gut via healing the brain-gut axis.
  2. Overcome inflammatory bowel disease.
  3. Stomach ulcers.
  4. Crohn’s disease.
BPC-157 Dosage and How To Take It:

After reading our science backed article on BPC-157, we know you will be raving to give it a try, especially if you’re just discovering Peptide Therapy and want something that can be used both orally and injectable.

You can acquire any of our peptides by booking in a consultation with our Integrative and Functional Medicine practitioner, Jessica, who has years of experience working with Peptide Therapy.
