Melanotan 2 – 10mg vial. The choice for those who have access to their own consumables.
Melanotan 2 was developed by the University of Arizona during the 1980 whilst conducting research into the prevention of sunlight induced cancers.
Research into skin cancers.
The tanning peptide promotes melanogenesis. Results of scientific studies have shown that this peptide safely helps skin produce Melanin. Melanin protects the skin from harmful exposure to sunlight by causing skin melanocyte activation more commonly known as the tanning process. This can aid people with certain skin conditions such as Rosacea, Psoriasis, and Vitiligo by improving or totally masking the skin condition see https://melanotan2info.wordpress.com/.
Research into sexual dysfunctions.
MTII also promotes aphrodisiac effects. Very early in the development process at the University of Arizona, one of the scientists conducted an experiment on himself and mistakenly gave himself double the intended dose which resulted in an “eight hour erection along with nausea and vomiting”. By influencing activates in the brain these tanning shots are able to help treat erectile dysfunction. However, more recent clinical studies have shown that it can also help females with sexual dysfunctions.
Research into weight loss.
Another claim is that tanning injection peptide can also suppress appetite, by being able to improve glucose and increase insulin sensitivity it is therefore a long term modulator of energy and can help against weight gain.
It is these side effects that have given melanotan 2 the nickname “the Barbie Drug”.
