BPC 157, or Pentadecapeptide – is composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from the human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing and decrease pain of many different wounds and damaged areas including:
BPC 157 protects organs and helps to prevent ulcers of the stomach.
Stable gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157 is an antiulcer peptidergic agent, safe in inflammatory bowel disease clinical trials and wound healing, stable in human gastric juice and has no reported toxicity. Notably, it has a prominent effect on alcohol lesions (i.e., acute, chronic) and NSAIDs-lesions (interestingly, BPC 157 both prevents and reverses arthritis) and acts as a free radical scavenger and exhibits neuroprotective properties.
