MELANOTAN 2 is a synthetic peptide that studies have demonstrated to show effective tanning (melanogenesis) and libido enhancing effects. Melanotan II is a variant of alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH), a melanocortin peptide hormone that is naturally produced in the body. Structurally, Melanotan II is a cyclic heptapeptide analogue of the alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) that tends to induce skin tanning. Melanotan II has the added effect of increasing libido naturally by stimulating melanocortin receptors.
MELANOTAN 2 developed at the University of Arizona is a synthetic analogue of natural hormone alpha-melanocyte peptide (α-MSH) stimulating hormone melanocortin that this in use has been shown to have melanogenesis (tanning) and aphrodisiac effects in preliminary clinical studies and tests.
MELANOTAN 2 is an analogue of melanocyte, which is responsible for tanning of the skin and stimulates the hormone responsible for the production of melanin. Melanin determines skin color and degree of sunburn. It enhances protection against UV rays and burns. The drug reduces appetite and increases sexual activity.
Benefits of MELANOTAN 2
– The body is protected from the harmful effects of UV radiation (whether this is from the sun or solarium treatments)
– It protects the user from the discomfort of sunburn
– It limits damage to the skin cells’ DNA and the possible future consequences of melanoma
– It leads to even and easy tanning.
Dosage MELANOTAN 2
MELANOTAN 2 is supplied in freeze-dried (lyophilized) form and reconstituted with bacteriostatic water. MT-2 can be injected subcutaneously or intramuscularly with the most common and convenient subcutaneous. Melanotan II should be kept refrigerated at all times, and should be discarded within 30 days after reconstitution.
Melanotan II is typically taken at a dose of 0.5-2mg a day with 0.5-1mg being enough for most people who use it for tanning. The same dosage 0.5-1mg is sufficient for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
Side effects related to Melanotan II are similar to other peptides: rinsed face, headache, feeling dizzy, lethargy, nausea, white patches and possible pain or redness at the injection site. The benefits that users get from Melanotan II are: darker skin pigmentation, appetite suppression, fat loss, lean body mass, greater libido and a frequency of builds.
There is a serious anecdotal note about Melanotan II, some users have experienced serious nausea after using the m2. It is variable of individual, but must be a concern. You must feel your dosages and slow start before you go long in using this peptide.
