Recent studies show that GHK-Cu has the ability to regulate biochemical pathways resulting in diverse healing and protective actions. Not only does Copper Peptide stimulate blood vessel and nerve outgrowth, but it also enhances the presence of collagen, glycosaminoglycan synthesis, and elastin within the body. GHK-Cu can also improve tissue repair in the skin, liver, lung connective tissue, stomach lining and it also supports the function of dermal fibroblasts.
Copper Peptide GHK-Cu also referred to as glycl-l-histidyl-l-lysine peptide is a copper complex that is naturally produced in the human body, it has a strong affinity for Copper(ll) and is composed of three amino acids that are found in human blood plasma, saliva, and urine.
Copper Peptide is essential to various biological functions in the body, such as accelerating wound repair, promoting blood vessel outgrowth, anti-tumor defense, as well as, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
Adults in their 20s posses 200ng/ml of this copper complex, while adults in their 60s only have 80ng/ml, indicating that the levels of Copper Peptide GHK-Cu drop during the aging process.
The medical study of Copper Peptide GHK-Cu began 48 years ago in the 1970s, since then medical researchers have made groundbreaking discoveries regarding its molecular actions and biological processes. Copper is a transitional metal that is critical to human survival.
It operates as an extraordinary factor in a plethora of biochemical reactions. GHK-Cu’s unique ability to bind with Copper (ll) ions makes it an important role in copper metabolism. The relationship between Copper (ll) ions and Copper Peptide GHK-Cu allows GHK-Cu to modulate gene expression and regulate human genes.
What is the function of the peptide?
Copper Peptide is a small molecule that holds many health benefits such as:
- Skin Restoration
GHK-Cu is a key ingredient in cosmetic products used to reduce the signs of aging by firming and toning the skin, removing deep wrinkles and lines on the face, reduce skin spots and lesions and improve the overall skin appearance.
- Stimulate Wound Healing
GHK-Cu is produced naturally in the body. It is found in human plasma and is released from the tissues when physical injuries occur. It’s regenerative properties and anti-inflammatory effects accelerate wound repair and healing. Patients are encouraged to use GHK-Cu after surgery to reduce scarring and advance the healing process.
- Reduce Pain, Aggression, and Anxiety
Apart from its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, GHK-Cu physical structure resembles Cimetidine, a component that is used to reduce pain.
- Hair Re-growth
As mentioned earlier, Copper Peptide GHK-Cu strongly stimulates hair growth by increasing follicle cell proliferation and decreasing programmed follicle cell death.
- Anti-Cancer Effects
GHK-Cu is capable of reversing the expression of specific genes associated with the metastatic spread of colon cancer.
