Copper Peptide (GHK-Cu) 50mg
Copper Peptide, is one of the best kept secrets in the beauty and health industry. Many dont know, that GHK-CU is a naturally occurring peptide in the body. It has been researched extensively, and proven to substantially enhance and increase the speed of wound healing, prevent free radical damage to the skin, help with anti-aging , and speed up , and increase the growth of human hair. The powder may be blue or white in color.
The human copper-binding peptide GHK-Cu (glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine) is a small, naturally occurring tri-peptide present in human plasma that also can be released from tissues in case of an injury. Since its discovery in 1973, GHK-Cu established itself as a powerful protective and regenerative ingredient, which is currently widely used in skin and hair products. Its recommended to take with a Zinc oral daily supplement.
Facial Cosmetic Benefits:
The use of GHK-Cu for anti-aging cosmetics has been extensively researched and is used widely throughout the United States in a large portion of the population. When applied to the skin, GHK-Cu can cause firming of the skin, anti-aging, and anti-wrinkle activity. There have been multiple clinical studies done to determine the efficacy of GHK-Cu for treatment to the face.
One study was done on 20 females and confirmed that GHK-Cu outperformed vitamin C and retinoic acid in increasing collagen in photoaged skin. Another clinical study was performed for 12 weeks on 67 women, and it showed that GHK-Cu significantly improved aged skin appearance, increased thickness, reduced wrinkles, and strongly induced proliferation of keratinocytes in the dermis.

Hair Growth Restoration:
It has also been found that GHK-Cu stimulates hair growth. It was even shown that the efficacy of GHK-Cu for hair growth was comparable to that of 5% minoxidil, which is one of the most commonly used medications in the restoration of hair growth.
It is commonly being put in hair gels and shampoos, along with other copper peptides, to restore hair growth. In fact, a commercial product known as GraftCyte, which contains GHK-Cu, was clinically evaluated and proven to improve the outcome of hair transplantation surgeries and healing. Within the hair follicle, GHK-Cu has been shown to promote collagen production and strengthen already existing hair by stimulating growth in areas that are lacking thickness.(Cited Pickart l; Margolina A. GHK-Copper Peptide in Skin Remodeling and Anti-Aging. SOFW-Journal | 136 | 6-2010.)
