MELANOTAN-1 10mg + Injection water ampule
Melanotan 1 and 2 – Two Wildly Popular Peptides with Different Benefits
In the early 1980s, University of Arizona researchers hypothesized that they could cure various types of skin cancer by inducing the body’s natural pigmentary system to create a protective tan before UV exposure. So they synthesized a naturally occurring peptide called Melanotan to accomplish this task. Scientists have since had a tough time using Melanotan to battle skin cancer, but they’ve found some more reliable uses for this peptide.
Its most immediate use is as a sunless tanning agent, making the peptide very popular among bodybuilders . Scientists have also discovered that Melanotan can be very effective at curing sexual dysfunction. But it’s worth mentioning that there are two types of this peptide – Melanotan 1 and 2 – and they each have their own individual benefits and traits. That said, let’s answer some common questions about these differences and discuss side effects, dosage, female usage and more.
What is the Difference between Melanotan 1 and 2?
Melanotan 1 or “Melanotan 1,” when referring to tanning, is a drug currently in trials for light-affected skin disorders. Melanotan 2 is also a drug that’s been developed as a skin-tanning agent, and it’s popularized as a treatment for sexual dysfunction as well. It is mostly agreed that Melanotan 1 has less side effects, although it’s slightly less potent .
What Side Effects are Possible?
Those who’ve used Melanotan have reported that both versions can cause nausea and facial flushing. Melanotan 2 has also been known to cause new freckles and painful erections. Many researchers reported zero side effects when these drugs are used correctly and when they come from a quality source.
Is this Safe to use on Females?
Absolutely. Melanotan is not a hormone whatsoever and is safe to use on both female and male sexes. And since Melanotan may have skin cancer-fighting properties, it can allow one to spend more time tanning without fearing UV rays as much.
What is the Dosage?
Melanotan 1 shouldbe dosed 1mg per day for a week and then a maintenance dose of 2-3X per week. Thereafter, it is recommended taking this peptide before tanning. Melanotan 2 should be dosed at half an mg per day for a week, and then reduced to a quarter mg twice a week. These are merely average dosages, and one should always research what dosage will be best in one’s own circumstance.
How long until you notice results?
Usually one will notice results within 1-4 weeks. New freckles may appear, however, this is nothing to be alarmed about.
Melanotan 2, 1 – dosage and side effects
In clinical trials, doses up to 0.21 mg / kg per day for Melanotan 1 (16 mg for a 75 kg person) and up to 0.03 mg / kg daily for Melanotan 2 (2.25 mg for 75 kg) were used to determine peptide efficacy. At this dosage level, the study revealed the following cases of side effects:
Facial redness 75%
Reactions to injections 13%
Changes in vital signs or hematological parameters, blood biochemistry (liver and kidney function), as side effects of Melanotan have not been seen.
Both Melanotan 1 and Melanotan 2 can be used for long periods, resulting in an initial daily administration of 2-3 weeks or until the desired pigmentation level is reached. Then follows the maintenance phase of two injections per week.
Start with a dose of 1 mg per day for the first two or three days, and if the level of side effects will allow, increase the dosage by 0.25 mg every day for the next few days until you reach a daily dose of 2-3 mg. This level should be sufficient for most people, although some may wish to increase the dose to achieve a very deep tan. The maintenance phase is then used as described above.
Start with a dose of 0.25 mg. If side effects (primarily nausea) do not bother, try to increase your daily dose by 0.25 mg until you reach 1-1.5 mg a day. As with Melanotan, the maintenance phase is used after reaching the desired level. Melanotan 2 can only cause harm in the form of a very strong tan, and only at a significant dose excess.
