One of our readers recently wrote about his experience with BPC-157:
“I took it for 3 months and thought it was useless. A few weeks later, I realized that it was really that game changer. In addition to stopping the pain and cramps, my hair started coming back (autoimmune hair loss). I was shocked. The prices have dropped significantly. The competition is on. All laboratories have specials and sales. The difference between what the Rx was and what is on the market as a dietary supplement is that you have to take two capsules instead of one. Easy. “- MM
Peptides are so popular right now! But what do they do and are they really helpful for IBD patients?
What are peptides?
Well, peptides are amino acids – basically the building blocks of certain proteins that the body needs. In the gut, peptides are described as follows:
“… chemical messengers that regulate gastrointestinal (GI) functions such as secretion, motility, absorption, digestion and cell proliferation. These polypeptides are produced by endocrine cells in the stomach, pancreas or intestine and act locally through autocrine or paracrine mechanisms or in a classic endocrine manner at distant sites. The intestinal peptides are also produced in the central and peripheral nervous system, where they act as neurotransmitters. “
What is BPC-157?
According to the Thompson Clinic, BPC-157 is a synthesized peptide made up of a partial sequence of the Body Protection Compound protein (the “BPC” in “BPC-157”) found in the gastric juice in your own stomach. It is believed that BPC-157 protects cells and interacts with and alters other proteins and their metabolic pathways, particularly to promote tissue reconstruction and repair.
BPC-157 = body armor 157.
I recommend watching this great video by Drew Timmermans, ND, as it offers another great explanation of BPC-157. It is sold in liquid form for subcutaneous injection under the skin or as a powder in capsule form.
In some countries, BPC-157 is not an approved dietary supplement. You can still get it, but it is sold with a warning and the bottle says: For Research Use Only
What can BPC-157 do for me?
This compound is naturally produced in gastric juices, so animal studies show that when taken as a synthetic supplement it can aid intestinal healing. This peptide is said to help heal the intestinal lining, nerves, joints, cartilage, etc. It is very beneficial for ligament and bowel healing.
Another benefit is that for those who heal very slowly, peptides can really speed up this process. It has been referred to as a “Wolverine-Type Cure”.
BPC-157 is believed to help repair tissue and protect it from further damage. At the Thompson Clinic, they use it frequently and state the following:
“BPC 157 is widely used to speed the healing process of intractable orthopedic injuries such as partial ligament ruptures and rotator cuff ruptures and, more importantly, to fully heal these injuries. We also use BPC-157 in patients with GERD, IBS, Leaky Gut and Crohn’s Disease. These inflammatory bowel diseases have limited treatment options, but we see that BPC-157 works wonders by repairing intestinal lining lesions, reducing inflammation, and preventing ulcers.
We recently discovered the use of BPC-157 in traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients. BPC-157 has been shown to help repair brain tissue and promote healing in the brain after TBI. From TBI and PTSD to liver damage from alcohol, BPC-157 will heal and protect your organs that need it most and help you live a healthy life. “
Why is BPC-157 not approved by the FDA?
Since BPC 157 is NATURALLY produced in the body in gastric juices, it cannot be patented! Again, it cannot be patented because it occurs naturally in the body. Therefore, when something cannot be patented, there is a lack of funding and research to get it approved for use by the FDA. I’ve never had any side effects from taking BPC and I’ve heard of others and their success stories while using it.
However, it is always a good idea to educate yourself about BPC 157 before using this product! And also consult your doctor about this.
My personal experience with BPC-157
I took BPC-157 in capsule form – not liquid – for about 8 weeks ago for about 8 weeks. I took it once a day on an empty stomach so the morning has usually worked best for me. Let me point out that by the time I started taking it, I was 75% cured of my ulcerative colitis, so personally I didn’t notice any immediate results for my gut.
I tried it for my sinuses too! I opened the capsules and added them to my nasal sprays and nasal rinses for my severe allergies and sinusitis. Here I noticed almost instant results!
Of course, always consult your doctor or health practitioner before getting creative with any of these other BCP 157 methods. I just wanted to share my journey with you so that you can see how versatile this product can be! For example, it can be used orally, injected, taken nasally (for problems like me and all of my allergies), and / or used with enemas.
Using this orally or as an enema is awesome! If I were still looking for solutions to my IBD, I would definitely try this – I would follow Jini’s enema instructions and get all the materials I need here. Jini’s Complete Enema Kit includes complete instructions for using a home retention enema. If it were me I would open the BPC capsule and pour it in along with the enema mixture as it was made to cover and treat all of your bases.
I’ve personally heard from others struggling with IBD or IBS who have taken BPC-157 and it was their game changer! I LOVE how BCP-157 targets lesion or ulcer healing, and for IBD patients who have bleeding and strictures, it makes perfect sense that BPC-157 could be helpful in their healing.
Since the healing of my bowel has already taken place I believe it helped my bowel heal faster, but I did notice really instant results when I used it for my chronic sinusitis when I used it in my neti pot have. I decided to put one capsule in my neti pot every day – this is how I got it in all of my sinuses. I also had a bottle of Ion Biome nasal spray with me, so I dropped the powdered BPC-157 capsule into the nasal spray and used it that way. Let me tell you that I went from breathing in my nose to both nostrils in just a few minutes!
In any case, I hope this information has been useful to you. Have any of you used BPC-157 yourself? Was it a game changer for you or not so much? Tell me in the comments!
