This peptide is the synthetic form of Epithalamin, which is produced by the pineal gland. The peptide is used by the body to encourage telomerase production, which is vital to the process that protects DNA by helping cells reproduce telomeres.
DNA protection is essential to DNA replication, making the production of telomerase essential to health and longevity. As we age, telomerase production drops naturally. Introducing it as a supplement has a positive impact on longevity.
Additionally, studies indicate that Epitalon helps with circadian rhythm and cortisol control (the hormone associated with stress.)
