GHK-Cu 50mg Copper Peptide
GHK (glycyl-l-histidyl-l-lysine) is a tiny protein found naturally in the blood of many mammals, including humans, where it is often attached to copper (Cu) to form GHK-Cu. Early research has revealed that GHK-Cu could restore function to liver cells, making old cells act like much younger cells. Subsequent animal studies have found that the protein has an ability to reduce the effects of aging in a number of tissues. Animal studies have revealed that GHK’s effects are particularly pronounced in skin where it acts to promote the production of supporting structures (extracellular matrix) in the skin, increase collagen synthesis, regulate copper levels, and activate reparative cells (fibroblasts and mast cells), –. The protein is now being investigated as an anti-inflammatory to replace cortico-steroids, for use in nerve regeneration, as a stem cell growth factor, as a DNA protectant, and as a general anti-cancer agent –. GHK-Cu is widely used in cosmetics and has been investigated for use in wound healing and hair growth , . For reasons that aren’t clear, GHK production declines with age.
