Melanotan 2 is a synthesized analogue of natural melanocortin, which is a substance responsible for regulating the production of melanin, as well as for the quality of tanning. The peptide drug was developed in the United States as a treatment for skin cancer. In the course of numerous studies, it was proved that Melanotan 2 also exhibits a pronounced aphrodisiac property.
The purpose of the peptide was to obtain a drug that is able to protect the skin from the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation from the sun. To achieve this, it was necessary to develop a substance that enhances the production of melanin. At the first stages of creation, it was not possible to obtain melanocortin with a stable molecular structure. The substance required improvement.
Thanks to the many experiments performed, it was possible to find the peptide form of [Nle4, D-Phe7] -α-MSH. It turned out to be a hundred times more powerful than its natural counterpart, produced in the human body. When the form was fully tested and approved, the peptide received the patent name "Melanotan 2".
The first peptide studies were conducted in humans in 1996. Young men received five subcutaneous injections of the substance. Dosages were taken small. The results of the experiment showed the effect of Melanotan 2 on the body. It manifested itself in improving the quality of the resulting tan, the acquisition of skin with a dark skin. This is not the only experiment with the drug.
A couple of years later, the study covered a group of patients suffering from erectile dysfunction. The peptide was administered at 0.025 milligrams per kilogram of a person’s own weight. Thanks to the intake of the substance, the dysfunction was completely eliminated even in those cases when the reasons of a psychological nature contributed to its development. Increased libido and improved erection have been proven by other experiments that have been carried out repeatedly.
What is the effect of taking Melanotan 2?
In the process of studying and taking the peptide, it was found that due to the use of the substance:
- quality characteristics of tan are improved;
- increased erection and increased sexual desire;
- increases the speed of the process of burning fat;
- decreased appetite.
Melanotan 2: Use for Better Tanning
To obtain an even and beautiful tan, it is supposed to take a general peptide course in an amount of from 500 to 1000 micrograms. The substance is injected under the skin using an injection insulin syringe. Duration of administration varies between 15-20 days. At the same time, it is recommended to visit a solarium or a beach. No changes are required to the usual duration of sunbathing.
You can evaluate the results from taking the substance in the period from 2 to 3 weeks after starting to use the drug. Libido improves much faster. There have been cases when a spontaneous erection occurred 2 hours after the introduction of Melanotan 2.
How to take the drug to avoid the appearance of freckles?
Owners of white skin are recommended to adhere to the course from 8 to 10 days, taking 100-200 micrograms of the substance. The peptide can be administered daily or in intervals of 1-2 days. Strict adherence to the given dosage, being in a solarium or in the sun for a similar amount of time, as before the start of the course, helps to prevent the formation of freckles.
If you sunbathe too long, this will not improve the effect obtained from the drug, but it is possible to get a burn or freckles. Do not forget the use of special skin moisturizing creams.
Course for people who are not afraid of freckles
A similar pattern of use is widely popularized on the Internet. It involves the use of a large dosage of the substance, which is very beneficial for those who distribute the drug to a potential audience.
Such a course implies the presence of a “loading” stage, and then maintaining a certain concentration of melanin in the blood. On the first day, 25 is administered, on the second day, 50, and on the third day, 75 percent of the proposed dosage. From the fourth day to the very end, they take the full norm of the drug.
There are no data on how to calculate the exact dosage of Melanotan 2. The rate is recommended to be selected according to your own skin type.
Possible side effects from Melanotan 2
The use of the drug can cause:
- spontaneous erection;
- redness and pigmentation of the skin.
The drug is able to affect the cardiovascular and immune systems. However, there is no evidence of this.
Against the background of an overdose of the substance, pressure may increase, pain in the body may occur, kidneys are damaged, muscle fibers are destroyed. These negative consequences were recorded with an increase in the optimal norm by 60 times.
Users of the drug note a darkening of the skin even when sunbathing is not taken. If a person tans, then the skin takes on a really dark shade. Many people who comment on Melanotan 2 note that the epidermis, after taking the substance, recovers faster after burns, although the peptide does not protect against them.
Negative reviews are extremely rare, due to the minimal risk of buying a fake. Among the negative side effects, skin pigmentation, freckles, and moles are most often noted.
