Melanotan II, commonly known as Melanotan 2, is an analogue of the endogenous alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) that is composed of seven amino acids. Melanotan II was originally developed by researchers lead by Victor J. Hruby and Mac E. Hadley at the University of Arizona as a possible preventative treatment to combat the harmful effects of UV radiation exposure caused by sunlight. These scientists hypothesized that the exogenous melanotan could stimulate melanogenesis, which would then lead to the production of melanin to form a protective barrier from the UV rays emitted by the sun. Further studies have shown that Melanotan II could quite possibly be a thousand times more powerful than natural α-MSH at stimulating melanogenesis and may also stimulate other melanocortin receptors, namely MC1, MC3 and MC4. The MC3 and MC4 receptors are responsible for appetite, metabolism and sexual behavior. Resultantly, Melanotan II may elicit appetite suppressant, lipolytic, and libido-enhancing (aphrodisiac) effects. A few synthetic analogues of α-MSH have been investigated for their apparent photoprotective effects against ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, namely Melanotan-1 and Melanotan II.


Melanotan II (Melanotan 2) 10mg Peptide Information

Melanotan II has been thought to dramatically increase natural melanogenesis, which is a process that occurs when cells produce a pigment known as melanin that is found in the skin, eyes, and hair. Melanogenesis leads to a long-lasting pigmentation, which is in contrast to the pigmentation that originates from oxidation of already-existing melanin. The positive results gleaned from Melanotan II administration have encouraged further research into the development of this peptide and others for theoretical future functional therapeutic utilization. At we are fervently engaged in the quest to uncover these exciting possibilities and we are dedicated to doing our utmost to provide only the best quality Melanotan II in order to unlock the potential of this extraordinary peptide.
