What is GHK tripeptide used for?

GHK-Cu is a tiny protein that occurs naturally in our bodies and has some amazing benefits. Studies have shown that it can help reduce inflammation, increase our body’s ability to fight harmful substances called antioxidants, and even change the way our genes work.

What is GHK-Cu?

GHK is a naturally occurring tri-peptide that consists of the amino acids glycine, histidine, and lysine. It was first isolated from albumin and is said to have a strong affinity for copper which is why it is usually referred to as GHK-Cu.

GHK-Cu is present within the collagen and is released whenever the tissue undergoes damage. It can also be found in bodily fluids such as plasma, saliva, and urine.

How does GHK-Cu work?

GHK-Cu peptide mainly works to protect and regenerate the skin, and it does this by various mechanisms that we will go through one at a time. Other than the skin, its pleiotropic effects can also be seen in lung injuries and wound-healing actions.

GHK-Cu has the ability to stimulate the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans, which are essential components of the connective tissue, and thus help in the tightening of sagging skin.  

Alongside its regenerative properties, it is also involved in the activity of metalloproteinases, which are enzymes that are responsible for the breakdown of proteins in the extracellular matrix. This action prevents the buildup of damaged proteins which can potentially affect the smooth outer appearance of the facial skin.

GHK-Cu increases the expressions of integrins and p63, which are responsible for stimulating the growth of epidermal basal cells. This peptide also modulates the effect of skin fibroblasts, which alongside the epidermal cells, are necessary for the process of skin regeneration.
