Epithalon is a tetra peptide with a structure consisting of 4 amino acids. This peptide can be used to control the cycle of a cell by up-regulation of the enzyme telomerase activity in the body.
The person who discovered this peptide was Professor Vladimir Khavinson, a Russian scientist who had conducted a research on epithalon spanning over 35 years using animals and human trials. The results this professor obtained were amazing and it proved that in the human clinical trials.
Epithalon consisted of a very strong anti-aging property stimulating the production of a life extension substance which like many other positive substances in the body decline with age.
How Epithalon Works
Having mentioned that this peptide has potent anti-aging properties, it works in amazing process. The main area it works on is in the pineal gland of the human’s brain. The main function of epithalon is to increase the natural production of the nucleoprotein telomerase. This is a natural enzyme that has a distinct role in the body by aiding cells to reproduce making telomeres the most protective parts of a person’s DNA.
It allows DNA replication in our bodies so that the new cells are produced to rejuvenate older cells. It gives a 33% increase in the length of telomere in somatic cells and has been said to have an impact on general aging in humans.
This peptide is also known to promote natural cycles and very healthy sleep cycles in people. It also regulates the level of cortisol and any other stress hormones which mostly cause weight gain around the abdomen. It works by elevating cortisol levels in the morning and elevating melatonin in the evening hours.
Telomerase is a nucleoprotein in the body that has RNA and its function is to add some repeated sequences to telomeres’ ends. A telomere protects the end of a chromosome from some factors like deterioration or unwanted infusion with other chromosomes.
There is a lot of production of telomerase and production of longer telomeres in young people. If a telomere is long, the better the health of a cell and they give more cell replication. When people start aging, the levels of telomerase produced are low leading to cell health decline and less cell replication. That is the main cause of aging in people.
It is therefore obvious how telomerase and telomere rejuvenation and production are important when it comes to fighting the signs of aging in people.
Does Epithalon Help?
In many studies carried out, it has been proven that epithalon increases the production of telomerase which makes telomeres stronger and longer. This means that this peptide can help in slowing down the process of aging and increasing the quality of life in those later years.
The Benefits of Epithalon
There are numerous benefits of epithalon. Some of these include:
So far there are no known side effects associated with epithalon
Human life extension via Telomerase activation and elongation of Telomeres
Epithalon is one of the very few substances which are able to activate Telomerase (telomere terminal transferase) enzyme in humans. Telomerase renews (elongates) the telomeres, which are responsible for protection of the human DNA from damage and cancer causing errors.
Treatment of aging cells in culture with Epithalon induced elongation of telomeres to the size comparable to their length during the early cell divisions. Epithalon treated cells with elongated telomeres made 10 extra divisions (44 passages) in comparison with the control and continued dividing. Thus, Epithalon prolonged the vital cycle of normal human cells due to overcoming the Heyflick cell division limit.
Epithalon used for Anti Aging
Epithalon decreases the age-related changes in immune and neuroendocrine systems, reduces the incidence of recurrent infections and chronic diseases. Long term clinical trials have shown that in patients with age-related pathology Epithalamin eliminates imbalance in prooxidation and antioxidation systems.
Results of 12-months treatment with Epithalon in patients with signs of accelerated aging showed normalizing effect on metabolism and condition of various functional systems. Elevated uric acid, alkaline phosphatase and cholesterol in elder patients returned to normal after 10 days of treatment, and remained stable in a several months period afterwards.
Experimental and clinical studies of Epithalon showed the following pharmacological properties of Epithalamin (Epitalon):
There have been no reported side effects of Epithalon in any of the clinical and experimental trials. Likewise, there are no reports of any Epithalamin adverse reactions on various internet forums, where people have been documenting repeated courses every 10-20 days cycled every six months for several years.
Dosage and Cycle
Dosage depends on the purpose and severity of the damage which is treated. Epithalon can be used orally (less effective and large dose) or injected intramuscularly or under the skin (more effective at much smaller dose).
duration: between 10 - 20 days
dosage: between 400 - 600 mg of Epithalon per day
daily frequency:200 mg per serving, between 2 - 3 servings per day (depending on the dosage)
duration: between 10 - 20 days
dosage: between 15 - 30 mg of Epithalon per day
daily frequency: total daily dosage split into 3 servings throughout the day
Dosage is 10 mg per day for 10 days injecting 5mg in the morning and 5mg in the evening or the more favoured is injecting 5mg per day for 20 days
Duration, each 10 - 20 days course of Epithalon is followed by 4-6 months pause before repeating the course again. Epithalon treatment can be repeated Indefintely.
