Protective function of peptide
According to research papers BPC 157 has the following effect on the body:
- is a component of gastric juice;
- regulates the formation of gastric and duodenal ulcers;
- has a protective effect on the inner surface of the vessels;
- regulates the growth and formation of new blood vessels;
- has anti-inflammatory effect in the event of pathologies;
- prevents the occurrence of inflammation;
- accelerates wound healing (stimulates the growth of connective tissue cells);
- has a neuro-protective effect in the pathologies of the central nervous system;
- promotes the regeneration of many tissues and organs.
The use of BPC 157 in the gastrointestinal tract pathology
As a result of studies confirming the ability of peptide BPC 157 to suppress inflammatory processes and prevent the occurrence of ulcers, it has been suggested that the peptide plays a significant role in the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases. It has been proven that it effectively eliminates inflammatory processes in the intestines, as well as in the surrounding tissues.
For example, its use is justified in the case of such pathologies as:
- regional enteritis (Crohn’s disease) – an inflammatory process with the formation of granulomas in any part of the digestive tract;
- ulcerative colitis (inflammation of the mucous membrane of the large intestine);
- esophagitis (inflammation of the esophageal wall);
- collagen colitis (proliferation of collagen tissue in the large intestine) and others.
Using BPC-157 for gum disease
The ability of peptide BPC-157 to eliminate inflammatory processes is also used in dental practice. So, as a result of scientific experiments conducted on rats, it was found that the introduction of BPC-157 in the area of the gums affected by periodontitis, significantly reduces the appearance of inflammation and, further, accelerates the process of tissue repair. In addition, this protein compound contributes to the preservation of calcium in the tissues of the tooth.
Effect on wound healing
According to scientific experiments, the introduction of peptide BPC-157 in the area of damage contributes to its rapid healing. Migration of fibroblast cells was observed at the site of tissue rupture, their growth and the production of specific, stimulating regeneration, proteins.
For tissue damage, peptide injections should be placed as close as possible to the site of injury.
