Melanotan 2 is a peptide hormone belonging to the mimetics class of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MCH). Melanotan 2 is a synthetic pituitary analog derived from melanocortin. The peptide is mostly known for its ability to aid in tanning but is also used to support erectile function. Melanotan 2, also known as MT-2, has no function other than that associated with darkening of the skin and erectile function.
Melanotan 2 (MT-2) functions by stimulating the alpha-MSH receptor. It is a receptor that produces melanin, which helps to darken and pigment the skin. Because of this action, the subordinate will become darker and easier. There are several alpha-MSH receptors in the body. Melanotan 2 works by stimulating the MC1-5 receptor. Stimulation of this receptor helps to darken the skin. MT-2 also stimulates the MC4 receptor, which acts to increase the erectile function of the penis. Clinical studies have shown promising results for Melanotan 2 in terms of erectile dysfunction. Studies show increased penis stiffness in erection and elevation of libido.
The effects of Melanotan 2 are related to nothing more than darkening of the skin and eventual erectile function. A darker and deeper complexion can be spotted after a few and should produce noticeable results in a few weeks. The longer MT-2 is used, the darker the user will be. The effects of Melanotan 2 on erectile dysfunction take about 4-6 hours to take effect and should last for 6-12 hours depending on the individual response. Time is important if used for this purpose. It is possible that the peptide is administered daily as a maintenance dose after a known daily period of injection.
Dose and administration:
Melanotan 2 is a fine white powder in a vial to be mixed with bacteriostatic water. The powder should be stored in dry and cool places without direct sunlight. The solution should be used with subcutaneous injection into the body fat using a very small needle or intramuscular injection with a suitable one. Melanotan 2 should be stored in a refrigerator (between 2 and 8 ° C / 36 ° F and 46 ° F) as it is combined with the solution because it is likely that the amino acid chain will collapse and this will affect its effectiveness Melanotan 2 should store in the refrigerator at any time and should be discarded 30 days after reconstitution. Melanotan 2 is usually taken at a dose of 0.5-2 mg per day, and 0.5-1 mg is enough for most people who use it for darkening purposes. The same dosage of 0.5-1 mg is sufficient to treat erectile dysfunction.
The most common side effect of Melanotan 2 is appetite suppression, but it should not be as significant as it may be from diet or medication for weight loss. Nausea, fatigue or the sensation of light may occur in a rare case. Such effects may be strong but quickly disappear. Dosage reduction may be necessary if such effects occur until it is reached to an acceptable level. The side effects of Melanotan 2 may include darkening of the hair, though not significantly. This may include darkening of the moles, and in some cases, its use should be discontinued. Darkening and enlargement of the moles is the only side effect of Melanotan 2, which the user needs to watch carefully.
