Peptide BPC-157

BPC-157 stands for Body Protection Compound and is a peptide that has been studied since 1991. The world of peptides has been used with athletes for years in helping with injury repairs and quicker recover time. The reports of the results of BPC-157 are remarkable with athletes who have had significant injuries even being able to avoid surgery. The form of BPC-157 used for these athletes is the injectable version but an oral form is also available and has a much wider and broader use for everyone.

Peptides 101

Peptides are referred to as 'The Future of Medicine'. There are over 7000 peptides in our body, and they are master controllers working at the cellular level. Peptides are similar to proteins but contain 50 amino acids or fewer. Peptides are signaling molecules and work with our physiology and not against it. Because peptides facilitate and enhance our body's own natural responses, there are almost no adverse reactions. Peptides only bind to the receptors which they are designed to target.


BPC is a sequence of only 15 amino acids but has powerful healing and regenerative properties.This peptide seeks out specific signaling molecules released by injured tissue(s) and goes to work. It has profound effects on modulating the immune system yet BPC has no direct effect. All of the tissue healing comes from signaling your body to perform natural tasks that it has been designed to do.

BPC-157 was originally found as a protective peptide throughout the gut. But this peptide does so much more than just protection of the GI tract. BPC-157 can induce healing on various levels.

Healing effects

BPC is effective at giving cells what they need to restore functioning after damage.

It accelerates wound healing by improving blood flow and increasing collagen production but also promotes healing of all body tissues including the heart and brain. The oral form of BCP is the preferred route of administration for treating stomach ulcers and intestinal problems. The injectable form works best for muscle sprains, ligament damage and pain but I've seen great results in patients who have used the oral form for muscle and joint pain.

Patient Testimonial for healing sports injury.

My name is Jan Ozer. I’m an active 60+-year-old man with a very positive

experience with BPC-157 peptides that I want to share.

For about the last four years or so I had what felt like a stress fracture in my right foot with pain that would come and go but never quite get serious enough to visit a doctor. More recently, after an elliptical workout, I experienced sharp pain and instability in my right knee which was scary.

After about two weeks without improvement, Dr. Johnson recommended that I try a peptide called BPC-157. At $150 a bottle I was a bit skeptical but I really thought a visit to an orthopedic surgeon was in my short-term future.

I decided to try BPC-157 capsule and after just a few days my knee improved significantly and I noticed much less pain in my foot. A couple of weeks later and both foot and knee are almost totally pain-free.

If you're suffering from a chronic injury that's not improving, you should contact Dr. Johnson to discuss. If she recommends BPC-157, you should give it a try; it certainly worked for me.

Patient Testimonial for reflux

I've suffered from debilitating reflux for years and have been taking two medications to control the pain and discomfort. I eat well avoiding all sugars, grains, dairy and other trigger foods but nothing has helped.The pain is worse at night due to esophageal burning and so I have not been sleeping well.

Dr. Johnson recommended trying BPC-157 to see if it would help. I was ready to try anything. To my surprise, I noticed improvements with the pain within a couple of weeks and working with Dr. Johnson have slowly removed all the PPI's and reflux medications while taking the BCP. I feel absolutely great for the first time in years. - Anne G.

Common uses for BPC-157

Gut Health

  • Acid reflux and a way to wean off PPIs

  • Significant effects in healing gut mucosa from inflammation

  • Can help heal gastric ulcers

Immune System

  • 80% of the immune system is in the gut, having a healthy gut will balance your immune system.

  • Relief from allergies and viruses

  • Helps with inflammatory conditions such as arthritis

Enhances Recovery from Sports Injuries

  • Enhances healing of ligaments and tendons

  • Promotes bone healing, wound healing and muscle healing.

  • Great for athletes with an injury and promote connective tissue injury.

  • Faster recovery from work-outs

Body Composition

  • Has been shown to increase muscle mass and also decrease body fat.

Biotoxin illness including mold.

  • BPC is great for mold and mycotoxins as it binds the neurotoxins and mycotoxins and heals the leaky gut. This is key for mold.

  • BPC works by healing and protecting the body and reducing inflammation.

Neurological Health

  • Has been shown to help with healing the nervous system and promoting myelin sheath repair.

  • Great for mood and can enhance our neurotransmitters: GABA, serotonin and dopamine. Dopamine is our go getter, drive and motivation. GABA keeps us calm and in our parasympathetic system, and serotonin is joy and elation.

  • Helps to decrease anxiety and depression.

  • Increases neurogenesis due to increased nitric oxide. Nitric Oxide oxygenates the brain and the body.

The results using BPC-157 vary from one person to another but are often seen after a dosage cycle begins. This recommended cycle is between 3-6 months. Higher doses can lead to quicker results and especially with injections.

Of course BPC-157 needs to be taken alongside a proper diet and exercise plan to obtain the best results.

Possible Dangers of Using BPC-157

There have been no toxic doses seen in laboratory studies. Researchers have tried to find a toxic dose but none have been found. Research is still ongoing but BPC is very safe. Some have even stated that it is safer than water as you can get toxic from too much water.

The real danger of BPC-157 is buying it off the internet from an unknown third party company. Almost without exception, peptides online come from China and may be dangerous. Any peptide being sold on the internet has not been vetted for toxic chemicals and purity. Some of these products have been inspected and found to contain very little actual BPC and a lot of fillers.
