Today we are talking about Epitalon, what it’s for, and its potential benefits. All this and more in less than 2 minutes.
What is Epitalon?
Epitalon, is a lab-made version of the polypeptide Epitalamin which is naturally made in the pineal gland in the brain. It’s known for its anti-aging properties, stress reduction, and disease prevention.
What are its benefits?
Epitalon helps slow down the aging process by increasing the natural production of telomerase, a natural enzyme that helps cells to keep multiplying and making telomeres. Telomeres are the protective parts of our DNA, found at the ends of our chromosomes that help keep our chromosomes organized. This, in turn, decreases cell death and extends cell lifespan.
Epitalon also acts as an antioxidant that eliminates free radicals that are responsible for damaging and killing cells. Free radicals, simply put are unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and aging. In turn, Epitalon plays an important role in helping to suppress cancerous tumor growths.
Epitalon also restores and normalizes melatonin levels in older people who have lost some pineal gland function due to aging. Melatonin is a hormone your brain makes in response to darkness. It helps with sleep and your sleep-wake cycles. This is useful to those looking for more restful sleep.
How do you use this?
Epitalon can be used as a starting therapy to help DNA repair or as an antioxidant. It can also be given as a stand-alone therapy twice a year for cell protection, improving cell resistance, and stopping cell death. Some healthcare providers dose Epitalon intermittently along with other scheduled peptide therapies. The peptide injection is intramuscular (injected into the muscle).
Possible side effects include redness, itching, or swelling at the injection site. You should tell your healthcare provider about any side effects you experience.
