What are peptides?

Peptides are short-chain amino acids that are found naturally in the human body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and these amino acids are specifically designed to regulate certain functions within the human body.

Peptides are used as a mode of therapy that are used to take existing sequences and rewrite to potentially regulate and rejuvenate functions. In simpler terms, they bind to and tell other cells what to do, mimicking or replacing the functions of the naturally occurring peptide. Peptides may have the ability to rewrite body chemistry to promote homeostasis, restoration and anabolism.

Melanotan 2

Melanotan 2 is a synthetic peptide, which means it is chemically synthesized and made up of a chain of amino acids. It was initially developed as a potential treatment for skin cancer and is a similar, synthetically produced variant of melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH). Alpha-MSH is a peptide hormone naturally produced in the human body and secreted by the pituitary gland. [R] Melanotan 2 works by binding to multiple melanocortin receptors. Melanocortin receptors perform a wide variety of physiological functions in the body including regulating sexual function, pigmentation, and inflammation. MC5R, one of five melanocortin receptors, exerts potent influence over food intake. [R] Research has shown that Melanotan 2 has a strong affinity for the receptors responsible for stimulating the melanocytes to produce the skin darkening pigment melanin.[R] [R] [R]

Tanning Activity with Melanotan 2

A pilot phase-1 clinical study found MT- 2 capable of potentially promoting the darkening of skin. Three adult male subjects were enrolled in this study, each receiving a single daily injection of MT-2 or saline for five days a week (Mon-Fri) for two consecutive weeks.

Subjected visual inspection showed two of the three subjects to be darker in facial features after dosing. Only 5 low doses were administered every other day by subcutaneous injection. [R]

Melanotan 2 and Weight Loss

A recent study set out to investigate the chronic effects of MT-II on the energy levels and homeostasis in rats. Results indicated that MT-II chronically reduces body mass without the requirement of long-term caloric restriction and additionally reduced the amount of fat. Abdominal fat pads were 40 percent smaller in the animals that received either a low or high dose of Melanotan II compared with those that did not. It appears those effects were independent of caloric restriction. [R]
