I only recently have come to hear about BPC-157, and the stuff seems quite amazing.


What concerns me however is that I read that it raises the igf-1 levels. If you have been following Dr. David Sinclair, and some of the research about the longevity gene activiation, high igf-1 levels is correlated with a shorter lifespan. I would love for someone to tell me I have misunderstood or help clarify this for me.


Basically my question is, would taking BPC-157, mean that we are effectively benefiting ourselves in the short-term while harming ourselves in the long-term?


Kind regards,

LoL. As someone who has used real hgh and bpc, with blood tests pre and during, I have never seen igf increase on bpc157. Misinformation is rampant! And a little bump in igf is a very good thing in your middle years as it goes way too low naturally. PM me if you want to talk.

There's not enough information to know for sure how it affects human igf-1 levels, but if you really want to test this supplement, you can do an igf-1 test before and after and look for significant changes... for well under $100 per test.  
A few things to be aware of though.  
1)   peptides are normally poorly absorbed orally, some larger ones don't absorb at all...  This is why they inject it for rats.   And I honestly don't know if you can get tested for bpc-157 levels.
2)  be aware that this is synthetic, and taking a peptide that isn't normally found in your body, and which hasn't been tested on humans is a bit on the risky side.
