New Product: Melanotan II
We are adding another new magnificent peptide to our research compounds available in our store!
A Magnificent Peptide But What Is A Peptide Again?
Peptides are short strings of amino acids, typically comprising 2–50 amino acids.
They are easier for the body to absorb than proteins because they are smaller and more broken down than proteins.
Therefore, they can more easily penetrate the skin and intestines, which helps them to enter the bloodstream more quickly.
Research peptides are any peptides that researchers use in scientific research.
In recent years, peptides have gained recognition as being highly selective and effective in therapeutic applications.
Research peptides are those synthesized for study in the lab that can lead to new breakthroughs and future pharmaceuticals, but they become medicines only after undergoing rigorous study, clinical trial, and crucially, the FDA approval process.
What Is Melanotan II?
Melanotan II is a synthetic analog of the peptide hormone α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) that stimulates melanogenesis and increases sexual arousal.
It induces skin pigmentation and thus can reduce UV damage to the skin over time.
It was originally made as a drug to help treat certain skin conditions.
How Does Melanotan II Work?
Melanotan II acts as a non-selective agonist of the melanocortin receptors MC1, MC3, MC4, and MC5.
Melanotan II produces melanogenesis by activation of the MC1 receptor, whereas its clinically documented sexual effects are thought to be related to its ability to activate the MC4 receptor (though the MC3 is thought to also possibly be involved).
So Melanotan II works by replicating alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone in your body. This hormone binds to melanocortin receptors and stimulates the production of the pigment melanin in your skin cells.
The more melanin your skin cells produce, the darker your skin appears.
Clinical trials have shown that the use of Melanotan II may hold the potential to promote melanogenesis, with minimal side effects.
The primary role of melanogenesis is to protect the hypodermis, which is the layer under the skin from the UV-B light that causes damage.
It works by absorbing all of the UV-B light, which blocks its passage into the skin layer.
Benefits Of Melanotan II
For proper research, you should administer Melanotan II via a subcutaneous injection.
The most important benefits*:
- Increases sex drive and sexual desire
- Increases ability to achieve a darker tan with less exposure to UV radiation
- Reduction in the risk of Melanoma (skin cancer)
- Reduction in the incidence of sun-damaged skin
- No sunburn, no tan lines
- Reduction in body fat
- Increases libido
So you see that Melanotan II is a magnificent peptide for specific types of research.
*benefits have not been reviewed by the Food and Drugs Administration and are summarized from clinical trials.
Side Effects Of Melanotan II
Melanotan II comes with virtually no side effects.
A reduced appetite, nausea, headaches, and flushing are the most common side effects.
Another possible but reversible side effect is the darkening of existing moles and the creation of new moles.
Melanotan II will be available soon in our shop.
This magnificent peptide is an extremely interesting compound since it has a lot of great benefits for specific research.
So if you plan on researching with this purpose Melanotan II is the peptide to choose!
