GHK-Cu is a naturally occurring copper complex that was first identified in human plasma but has hence been found in multiple locations such as saliva and urine. Copper peptides are small, naturally occurring protein fragments that have high affinity for copper ions which are critical to normal body function. GHK-Cu has a variety of roles in the human body including, but not limited to, promoting activation of wound healing, attracting immune cells, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, stimulating collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis in skin fibroblasts, and promoting blood vessel growth. There has been evidence that has shown that it acts as a feedback signal that is generated after tissue injury. First, it seems to act as a potent protector of tissue and anti-inflammatory agent that controls the oxidative damage that occurs post-tissue injury. Further, it then plays a big role in signaling tissue remodeling which removes damaged/scarred tissue and generates new, healthy tissue. However, these positive effects decline with age because the concentration of GHK-Cu in the body decreases with age. Thus, there is an increase in inflammation, cancerous activity, and tissue destruction. Clinically, it is mostly used to decrease fine lines and wrinkles and to improve hair regrowth.

2. Thymosin Beta 4 (TB4)

Thymosin Beta B, also known as TB4, consists of 43 amino acids. It can be found in all tissues and cell types except for red blood cells. As with all peptides, it is something that we already have naturally occurring in the body. This amino acid is known for its regenerative abilities. TB4 levels rise significantly in areas where tissues have been damaged resulting in repair. Studies have shown that the use of TB4 can accelerate the healing process for soft tissue repair, dermal, and hair regeneration.

9 Uses and Benefits of Thymosin Beta 4

  • Improve muscle generation
  • Increase rate of cell healing
  • Support cell migration to the site of injury
  • Repair soft tissue, tendons, and ligaments
  • Reduce scar tissue
  • Improve hair regrowth
  • Extend life expectancy
  • Enhance anti-aging appearance
  • Accelerate muscle growth, tone, and stamina

Utilizing Thymosin Beta 4 is a proactive way to improve your health and provide aid to your body, whether it be soft tissue repair, dermal repair, or even hair regeneration. For even more accelerated results, a “stack” or combination of peptides can be utilized for a synergistic effect. For example – in healing and hair restoration, it can be stacked with BP-157.
