|Description||SPIERECTOR also known as BPC 157 ( Body Protecting Compound) is a 15 amino acid peptidergic growth factor produced in GI tract. Originally anti-ulcer stable gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157 has shown to promote healing of injured striated muscle and smooth muscle. SPIERECTOR has been shown to benefit ulcers in the stomach, intestinal damage such as fistulas and inflammatory disorders, wound and fracture (pseudoarthrosis) healing, bone and joint healing, and organ damage.
