BPC-157: What's all the hype?

    With over are over 7,000 peptides that naturally occur in our bodies, so why is BPC-157 a standout in the area of rapid injury repair?

    Over recent years the use of BPC-157, short for 'Body Protection Compound 157', has become the peptide darling of rapid cellular repair for a whole raft of reasons that will be touched on in this article.

    BPC-157 is a 15-chain amino acid peptide that naturally occurs in the human body, commonly used to promote rapid cellular repair across a wide range of injuries and inflammatory issues within the body.

    As we all know, as our bodies age. we can’t recover from and repair injuries as quickly as we used to, and in some cases not at all. One of the underlying reasons for this is that our hormones, neurotransmitters and signalling peptides also start to deplete. The overall topic of cellular functionality and lifecycle is amazing in it’s own right and our BIOV8 team will be penning a number of future articles covering cell senescence, restoring cellular efficiency, and autophagy. But for now, let’s stick to BPC-157, and how it plays a vital role in giving cells what they need to restore their functioning after damage.

    Our cellular repair process is complex, requiring efficient cell signalling and cellular metabolism. Cellular metabolism is regulated by peptides, hormones, enzymes, and their various transport systems. BPC-157 is a peptide that the body utilises to activate cell signalling pathways necessary for efficient cellular repair.

    BPC-157 was discovered in human gastric juice in the stomach, as such it’s often used to help treat stomach and intestinal conditions including fistulas, ulcers, and inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. BPC-157 has also been shown to help people with organ damage.

    It’s also ideal for accelerating wound healing, most commonly tendon-to-bone and ligament damage, including nagging injuries where the tissue needs to be rejuvenated. These injuries are usually slow to heal and are often reinjured before the repair process is complete. Blood supply to these tendon and ligament structures is poor, so healing is slow compared to well vascularised structures like skin and muscle.BPC-157 appears to work by accelerating the rate of angiogenic repair which is a key dynamic process for wound healing as it allows the formation of new blood vessels from old ones and is involved in the organisation of a microvascular network.

    This peptide has also been found to help alleviate joint pain, improve joint mobility.

    BPC is also extremely safe and well tolerated with very few side effects.

    BPC-157 key applications:

    • Is used when these is an injured tendon, ligament, or bone
    • Is used in deep skin burns, corneal injuries
    • Helps heal tissues improving cell survival under oxidative stress, increases fibroblast migration and dispersal, improves angiogenesis
    • Offers gastric protection, helps improve GI mucosal integrity, and is cytoprotective
    • May help regulate blood pressure 
    • Improves nerve regeneration and decreases neuroinflammation
