We have all heard or even said, ‘It’s a gut thing”. This is definitely true if you have experienced gut wrenching aches or pains. The gut controls 70% of the immune system and anything that affects our gut, may manifest in health symptoms.
There is a brain-gut relationship in anxiety and depression. Gut dysregulation may affect the thyroid ,which may cause weight fluctuation, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism. In addition, it controls our digestive system affecting constipation, diarrhea, gas, IBS, inflammatory bowel disease, and acid reflux. There are other ways the gut may affect our body. It may contribute to acne, eczema and rosacea. The immune system may be affected by decreasing our ability to fight infections and increase the risk for autoimmune disease.
In summary, digestive issues not only disrupt your day, also disrupts other systems your body. Your gastrointestinal tract and the bacteria therein, affects your body’s nutrient absorption, vitamin production, hormone regulation, immune response, detoxification systems, skin health and overall mental wellness.
This is why it’s essential to make gastrointestinal health a top priority for optimal health and longevity. If you neglect the care of your gastrointestinal health, your body will not perform optimally and set yourself up for illness.
BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in human gastric juice. Experimentally, it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of wounds, including tendon-to-bone healing and superior healing of damaged ligaments. In addition, BPC 157 seems to protect organs and to prevent ulcers of the stomach. This peptide is also shown to decrease pain and inflammation in damaged areas. Those who suffer from discomfort due to muscle sprains, tears and damage may benefit from treatment with this peptide. It can also help aid skin burns to heal at a faster rate and increase blood flow to damaged tissues. There is evidence the supports the healing of corneal ulcers. It has also be shown to support the serotonergic-dopaminergic pathways in the brain, supporting cognition and anxiety. It has also shown to help with weight loss and fat loss, by improving growth hormone secretion.

How Is It Delivered?
The peptide BPC-157 can be taken in capsule form. Oral dosages are best suited for treating stomach and intestinal problems. On the other hand, subcutaneous injections of BPC-157 is the preferred route of administration for inflammation, muscle sprains, inflammation, ligament damage, and pain.
The results of using BPC-157 may vary from one person to another, benefits are often seen soon after a dosage cycle begins. Typically, dosage cycles run from 6 to 12 weeks. I prefer to give it 12 weeks, to see results. Higher dosages often may lead faster results in terms of muscle development, in some people. This is in conjunction with a healthy diet, exercise and sleep. Some benefits may be seen in a few days while others might become noticeable over two weeks or longer.
