MELANOTAN 2 is a synthetically produced variant of a peptide hormone naturally produced in the body that stimulates melanogenesis, a process responsible for pigmentation of the skin.
This peptide hormone, called alpha-Melanocyte stimulating hormone or MSH, activates certain melanocortin receptors in the process of exerting its effects. Indeed, MSH also exerts potent influence over lipid metabolism, appetite, and sexual libido via these melanocortin receptors.
As a result, Melanotan 2 has been shown in studies to exhibit appetite suppressant, lipolytic, and libido-enhancing effects in addition to promoting skin tanning.
Drug class: (alpha-MSH, α-MSH) class of mimetic
Common names: Melanotan 2, Melanotan II, MT- 2, MT- II
Info: Melanotan II is a synthetic analog pituitary derived Melanocortin. The peptide is primarily known for its ability to help with tanning but is also used to aid in erectile function. Melanotan II, also referred to as MT-2, has no use of significance beyond tanning and erectile function.
Melanotan II (MT-2) functions by stimulating the alpha-MSH receptor. This is a receptor that produces melanin, which aids in the darkening of skin pigmentation.
There are several alpha-MSH receptors in the body. Melanotan II functions by stimulating the MC1-5 receptor. Stimulation of this receptor promotes darkening of the skin. MT-2 also stimulates the MC4 receptor, which acts to increase penile erectile function.
Appetite incresae or suppresses appetite (individual effect)
Helps burn fat
DOSE RANGE AND DURATION OF USE
Common cycle length is 14-28 days
Common dosage is 0,5 – 1mg/daily (some athletes can use up to 3mg/daily) Better to start your cycle with low dosage which is about 0,1-0,2 mg/daily
Half-life is several hours, this allows you to be very flexible with dosing. (active life is 33-36 hours)
HOW TO MIX
If you wish to use doses of less than 500mcg it would be best to use 2ml (200 units) of water. If you wish to use doses of 500mcg or more then you can use 1ml (100 units). This allows you to accurately measure doses while not having to inject more fluid than required.
The most common side effect of Melanotan II is appetite suppression.
Other possible side effects is nausea and fatigue or a lightheaded feeling.
Melanotan II can also include the darkening of hair and moles.
AFTER CYCLE THERAPY
Some athletes use Melanotan 2 in after AAC cycle to be more tanned or increase penile erectile function.
Unmixed vials will last 12 months stored in the refrigerator or freezer.
Mixed Melanotan , will last for 3-5 weeks in the fridge.
Never freeze mixed peptides.
Vials SHOULD NOT be deliberately shaken
