BPC 157 is a synthetic peptide that promotes healing. Healing is encouraged through the up regulation of growth factors and the modulation of nitric oxide synthesis. When used in its injectable form, it supports the healing of injury, especially the healing of tendons and ligaments. When used in the oral form, it has been found to heal the gut mucosa and is in clinical trials as a treatment for Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Crohn’s Disease, and gastric ulcers.
Injectable BPC-157 is not an ongoing treatment. It is usually injected subcutaneously every day for a month. It can be self-administered by the patient after training or administered by clinical staff in our office. Oral BPC-157 is taken once daily for a 30-day trial.
