BPC 157, BPC 15, or just BPC-157 is pentaecapeptide, which has fifteen amino acids in its polypeptide sequence; the peptide has a molecular mass of 1.42-kilo Daltons with a molecular formula of C62H98N16O22. the peptide has be found to be one of the most essential compound in protecting the body, scientific research shows that the hormone controls various aspects of the digestive tract. When isolated from the peptide was isolated from the gastric components it can help visualize different parts of the tract such as the intestines, esophagus, and the stomach. The peptide has shown to posses endothelial protection properties. The endothelium is a tiny layer of cells that surround or line the interior layer of the blood vessels, this is essential especially in angiogenesis. The process of forming new blood vessels usually occurs from the pre-existing cells, the peptide has shown to be effective in the formation of granular tissue and angiogenesis. The particular tissue, which is formed in the process, is the connective tissue and minute blood vessels, which develop on the surface where injury has occurred or during wound healing process. BPC 157 has wound healing properties and the basic functionality of the peptide is anti-inflammatory.
According to American Science Labs, recent scientific study reveals that BPC 157 functional mechanics does not only enable wound healing but also can accelerate the entire process. a research done of transected Achilles showed that the peptide accelerated the outgrowth of the tendons and this indicated the hormone promoted cell division , proliferation, development and maturity which in turn increased the ability the connective tissues to form. Moreover, the study shows that it increased the chances of cell survival therefore an enhanced wound healing process. BPC 157 has proven to possess anti-inflammatory properties, the presence of the peptide has a significant influence in reducing the effects of bowels inflammatory disease. The complex collection of vascular tissues is generated around the colon and small intestines, when such conditions happen the common negative condition is Chron’s disease, which is characterized by chronic inflammation of the bowels. The contributing factors are numerous such as immunological, environmental, and bacterial with the preexisting conditions aggravating the problem. One other condition that can be associated with the problem is ulcerative colitis, which describes the open sores in the colon mainly because of severe ulcers.
Recent research shows that BPC 157 has anti-inflammatory properties and it lowers adverse effects that are associated with esophagitis. Esophagitis is a condition that is characterized by inflamed esophagus and this makes swallowing difficult. Moreover, the results indicate that the peptide can offer an alternative solution in fighting periodontits, which is the inflammation of the tissues supporting the teeth. If the condition is not combated immediately, it may lead to loss of teeth. BPC 157 reduces extravasations in gingivomucosal tissues, which if it is left untreated it, may lead to inflammation on the affected region. A major feature that is still under research is the ability to lower alveolar resortpion, this is mainly characterized by the release of calcium ions from the bone fluid into the blood stream. This can be dangerous because the bones become brittle and it may cause osteomalacia in adults and rickets in children. Studies reveal that BPC 157 can help reverse the problem without altering the blood circulation process. Although the peptide seems promising in alleviating different conditions, it is still under research human consumption or clinical trials have not been approved. However, with continuing research on the mechanics, functionality, and benefits the hormone could be a perfect solution in the near future.
