BPC-157, or Body Protection Compound 157, is a naturally occurring peptide made in the body, originally isolated from human gastric juice. BPC-157 has been shown to accelerate wound healing; including tendon-to-bone, ligament damage (soft tissue injuries/sprains/strains), deep burns, and even corneal injuries. Beyond muscles and ligaments, BPC-157 provides gastric protection as an antiulcer peptide, is cytoprotective, neuroprotective, improves NO (nitric oxide), and has even been shown to decrease pain in damaged areas of the stomach. It is one of the few peptides that can be taken orally for its GI effects, but it best achieves systemic effects with subcutaneous injections either daily or even weekly depending on treatment goals. BPC-157 is generally dosed 500mcg SC daily or weekly for 6-12 weeks.
