Peptide Blends to Promote Faster Healing and Recovery from Musculoskeletal Injuries

Injuries are a very regular part of life of those who are very physically active especially in the gym or in a sports field. If you are among any of these groups of people, you must have searched for a product that can help you recover faster and prevent injuries at the same time.

If you are familiar with the world of weight training, you must have heard about the role of peptides in healing and quicker regeneration. There are many peptides in the market and each has a different mode of action and acts at different sites in the human body. So, you will have to make an informed decision on what will work best for you.

You can buy peptides from a number of online stores based out of the USA. Many stores do not sell these products for personal use. They would also not take responsibility for any side effects that may occur if their peptides are used for any purpose other than conducting laboratory research.

Let us discuss in brief the two most common peptides available in the market to quicken the regeneration process.

TB 500 Peptide

It is the synthetic version of the natural thymosin beta4 peptide, which is produced in good quantity by our thymus gland. Thymus gland plays a vital role in building the foundation of our immune system and enables us to fight infections throughout our life. This particular peptide produced promotes healing after an injury by:

  • Reducing inflammation around the area of injury.
  • Promoting the formation of new blood vessels and in turn accelerating the regeneration process.
  • Regulating the production of actins.
  • Promoting the formation of new tissues in the areas of damage by stimulating stem cell movement in those areas.
  • Increasing cartilage production due to its role as chondrocyte assistant.
  • The action of the peptide also promotes formation of a seal between the bones that constitutes a joint.

We all know that joints are more prone to injury when compared to the bones, and hence by adding the synthetic version of TB500, you can give your body a chance to recover from various joint injuries.

BPC 157 Peptide

This synthetic peptide is similar to the one found in our digestive tracts and constitutes 15 amino acids in its structure. The benefits of this synthetic peptide are:

  • Regulation of blood circulation in our digestive tract.
  • Providing a soothing effect in the areas of burn injuries.
  • Providing relief from feeling pain from damage or injury you might have suffered.
  • Providing a healing effect on alcoholic liver.
  • It could also provide treatment for duodenal and peptic ulcers.
  • It also provides therapeutic effects on the neurological tissues and also helps in promoting faster healing of muscles post an injury.
  • It is especially beneficial when you are healing from injuries pertaining to quadriceps and Achilles tendon.

Again, both tb 500 and bpc 157 promote angiogenesis and cell migration to support regeneration of damaged tissues, and healing of our skeletal system from any forms of injury. The only difference between the two is that bpc-157 promotes local area healing while TB-500 works throughout the body.

TB-500 or BPC-157 Which is Better?

TB-500 is better in stimulating growth, while BPC-157 promotes wound healing when administered at the site of injury. So, most doctors prescribe these peptides in a combination dosage to make use of the complementary mechanisms that both these peptides work on.

Many peptide manufacturers produce both the peptides as a blend to be given simultaneously for enhanced recovery. The common therapeutic dose for both is:

  • 200 mcg of TB-500 once a day for prophylactic use which can be increased for a maximum dose of 500 mcg a day. The treatment cycle should not exceed a month at the maximum dosage.
  • 200 mcg of BPC-157 once a day dose is usually given therapeutically while the maximum dose can go up to 1000 mcg a day depending on the extent of the injury.

Thus, the peptide that will work for your benefit will depend on your personal needs and the type of injury that you are looking to heal. Stacking both gives us the fastest healing and growth benefits.
