Matrixyl Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3 - increased collagen production
Matrixyl (Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3) 1MG
I am a chem guy, not saying I live or die for chem PE, as I never really traveled down that path, but I HAVE taken AAS, IGF, HGH with some nice results.
Now, My main focus is looking for peptides that would help if used WITH manual PE..
This part is what got my attention on Matrixl
“Together, they can boost the growth of the connective tissues and naturally increasing the production of collagen in the skin; when the production of collagen is increased, the skin can heal and rejuvenate itself.”
During PE, do we want collagen production increased? I think combined with a product that can “unlink” collagen during the exercises and then utilizing something like Matrixl for recovery and help grow new collagen would only be beneficial.
Going to do more Reading, but just throwing some Peptides out there.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a synthetic peptide comprised of four amino acids that is used in beauty products and cosmetics to suppress the production of excess interleukins, the chemical messengers which trigger the body’s acute inflammatory response. This can lead to glycation damage, or the process by which glucose links with proteins and causes them to bind together, stiffening tissues. This negatively affects the skin’s support system, comprised of collagen, elastin and other proteins, and leads to wrinkles, sagging, and uneven skin tone (Source).
Studies have shown that Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 can slow or suppress the production of excess interleukins, therefore inhibiting unnecessary inappropriate inflammatory responses and glycation damage. In vitro, scientists found that “Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 induced a marked dose-dependent reduction in interleukin production. The higher the concentration of Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide 7, the greater the reduction in interleukin production – up to 40%.” UV radiation is also known to accelerate interleukin production. Cells exposed to UV radiation and then treated with Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 saw an 86% reduction of interleukin production.
Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a key ingredient in Matrixyl 3000 and is used in conjunction with Palmitoyl-Oligopeptide. Together, they can boost the growth of the connective tissues and naturally increasing the production of collagen in the skin; when the production of collagen is increased, the skin can heal and rejuvenate itself.
