BPC-157 Peptide

Beyond its weight loss potential, BPC-157 is known as the “healing peptide” for good reason. It works naturally with your body to accelerate tissue repair, making it ideal for athletes or anyone looking to recover faster from injuries. BPC-157 also supports gut health, reduces inflammation, and may even benefit your brain function. When your body feels its best, reaching your weight loss goals becomes that much easier. Discover how BPC-157 can optimize your healing and well-being – contact us to explore if it’s right for your journey!


BPC-157 Benefits

BPC-157 is derived from a protective protein found naturally in your stomach. It works with your body’s own healing systems, boosting blood flow to injured areas, encouraging new blood vessel growth, and supporting the production of collagen (the building block of tissues). The really cool part? BPC-157 is incredibly stable, so it can be taken orally or by injection for maximum flexibility.

BPC-157 can promote faster healing of muscle, tendon, ligament, and bone injuries, reducing recovery time for athletes and individuals with active lifestyles.


  • Muscles, tendons, and ligaments: Ideal for athletes or those recovering from exercise-related injuries.
  • Bone: May support faster recovery from fractures.
  • Internal Tissues: Studies suggest it could aid in healing ulcers and reducing gut inflammation.

BPC-157 peptide exhibits anti-inflammatory effects, potentially offering relief for chronic pain conditions.


  • Relief from chronic pain conditions like arthritis.
  • Improved post-workout recovery with less soreness.
  • Support for overall gut health and reduced digestive discomfort.

Emerging research indicates BPC-157 may play a role in protecting brain cells and supporting cognitive function. While studies are ongoing, this suggests potential benefits for:


  • Recovery from brain injuries.
  • Promoting healthy brain aging.

Benefits Beyond

  • Improved Blood Vessel Function: BPC-157 may promote the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis), which is beneficial for tissue healing and overall health.
  • Enhanced Collagen Production: Supports the production of collagen, a key building block for healthy skin, tendons, and other tissues.


Side Effects: BPC-157

While BPC-157 is generally well-tolerated and has a favorable safety profile, it’s important to be aware of potential side effects. Most reported side effects are mild and often resolve on their own. These might include temporary digestive changes or slight fluctuations in blood pressure. Your healthcare provider is the best source for discussing your individual risks and managing any potential side effects.

Important Considerations:
Common Side Effects:
Unlikely Side Effects:
  • Side effect frequency and severity can vary depending on individual factors.

Less Common Side Effects

  • Headaches: Some individuals report occasional headaches, especially when starting BPC-157 therapy.
  • Fatigue: A sense of tiredness or fatigue may occur, particularly in the initial stages of treatment.

Uncommon Side Effects

  • Persistent or Worsening Symptoms: If you experience any side effects that persist, worsen, or cause concern, contact your doctor immediately.

Important Considerations:

  • This list may not be exhaustive. Always discuss the full spectrum of potential side effects with your prescribing healthcare professional.

I've heard BPC-157 is a "healing peptide." What exactly does that mean?

BPC-157 works with your body’s natural healing processes. It helps increase blood flow to injured areas, promotes the growth of new blood vessels, and boosts collagen production – all of which are vital for tissue repair.

Your doctor can determine if it’s a suitable option for you.

I joined the OPF 6 month weight loss program and have seen absolutely amazing results !! peptides, IV drips, targeted nutrition and exercise programming that was offered was a life changer. I never knew my body could feel this good. Mental and physical increases and the results…I cant even put into words! The program is very organized and well structured. Luke is a great guy and extremely knowledgeable. The team at OPF is absolutely outstanding highly recommend.

Amazing crew and service at OPF! Super knowledgeable staff and they make you feel very welcomed. I have done 1:1 training with them in the past, and came in today for my first IV drip. They made it a super simple process and I can already feel the difference. Highly recommend!

I went and got an immunity IV at OPF and the experience was amazing. It was my first IV and I was nervous but the entire process was smooth and Luke and the nurse consistently checked up on me to make sure I was okay. The entire atmosphere feels like a spa. I can’t highly recommend enough!

I had the best experience during the grand opening of the IV studio. I really wanted to get the IV Immunity Boost but because I had to catch a flight, I could only get the IM Shot. IV Therapy Session takes about 30 minutes, IM Shot takes 5 minute. From the moment I entered the studio, I saw only professionalism. Luke invited me to fill out a form that was then given to Dr. Frank. After discussing with Dr. Frank about my health, he suggested the immunity boost that I wanted to get. I appreciate that they have a doctor ready to check your health before you get an IV. For example, my wife is pregnant and because we spoke with the doctor there, he told us that we should dilute the IM shot since she is pregnant. These are things that we don't know, and it is great to be able to speak with a professional. All of this is included in the price of the IV session or IM Shot. I am super grateful, and when I get back, I will have to try the IV Therapy for sure!

If you’re looking to take the next step regarding your health and performance, consider seeing my guy Luke at OPF about IV therapy. I came in to get an immune boost IV drip to help this flu/cold season and ensure I’m always ready to go and enjoy life. Luke’s team members at OPF are caring and professional. You will receive a Doctor’s consultation in-house before the therapy to make sure everything is optimal and safe. The doctor is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all possible questions I have regarding the IV therapy. During the therapy the team made sure I was comfortable the entire time. Highly recommended to check out OPF if you’ve been curious about IV therapy and its benefits!

Went to Optimum for an IV appointment. It’s not something I’ve ever done before, so being fairly green to the process- they created such a thorough and comprehensive plan custom to me & my life. Can’t speak highly enough of the nurses & the services they provide.

I met Luke when I was looking for a personal trainer to help with my rehab after a knee surgery. I wanted to transition from Physiotherapy focusing just on my knee to being able to exercise my full body again. I find it really hard to make time for exercise with a very busy work schedule. Luke has been amazing on this journey, he is very supportive, approaches our training holistically, paying attention to not only the progress in my body but also my overall motivation and wellbeing. Not only Luke but the whole team here are approachable and friendly. The environment is not intimidating at all, they cater for a large variety of clients ranging from professional athletes to those who simply need to learn how to use their body and exercise. I can now jog again and keep learning more about how to take care of my body.

I've been fortunate to have the guidance of strength and conditioning coaches throughout my life.  Over the past decade, I've been actively involved in running my own basketball program. When searching for a local high end fitness facility,  Optimum Peak Fitness (OPF) caught my attention as the perfect choice to enhance my foundation encompassing mobility, stability, and strength, while simultaneously elevating my athletic performance. What sets OPF apart is their unique approach to movement, grounded in solid biomechanical principles. Their coaches collectively embody this philosophy, consistently prioritizing effective techniques. Notably, OPF offers a range of invigorating classes, including YOGA, HIIT, and circuit training, thoughtfully scheduled and infused with remarkable energy.

I started workout sessions 2x week with Luke approximately 2 1/2 months ago. I'm over 50, active and in relatively good cardio/vascular condition, but I wanted help with muscle tone, flexibility and overall stability. Luke has been great for all of this. He asks each session how my body is feeling and works on problem areas if something is tight. He reviews my overall fitness and well being goals regularly. He knows how to read me and push me just beyond my comfort level without any occurring any overuse injuries. I truly enjoy my work out with him each time I go. His entire team seems very professional and friendly. They know everyone by their first names even if they don't work out with that particular client. I am very impressed by this. I would recommend Optimum Peak Fitness to to anyone who wants to improve their fitness- to the person who is just starting out, to the person who has had prior muscle/joint injuries or to the elite athlete working to improve their performance.
