Epithalon (also known as Epitalon or Epithalone) is the synthetic version of the polypeptide Epithalamin which is naturally produced in the pineal gland.
It was discovered by the Russian scientist Professor Vladimir Khavinson, who then conducted epitalon-related research for the next 35 years in both animal and human clinical trials.
Epitalon’s primary role is to increase the natural production of telomerase, a natural enzyme that helps cells reproduce telomeres, which are the protective parts of our DNA. This allows the replication of our DNA so the body can grow new cells and rejuvenate old ones. Younger people produce a relatively large amount of telomerase and longer telomeres. The longer the telomere strands are, the better cell health and replication they provide. However, as people age, the production of telomerase falls and consequently cell replication and health decline. This is the main reason that people age.
It also plays a role in regulating metabolism, increasing the sensitivity of hypothalamus to its natural hormonal influences, normalizing the function of the anterior pituitary and regulating the levels of gonadotropins and melatonin in the body.
Numerous research studies have shown the importance of telomerase production and telomere rejuvenation in fighting the symptoms of aging. In research Epitalon has been shown to increase the production of telomerase which in turn strengthens and lengthens telomeres, this means that Epitalon can play a vital role in decreasing the aging process and thus extend human longevity.
Research has shown the following potential benefits of Epitalon:
- An increase of human lifespan by lengthening telomeres in human cells.
- Promotion of deeper sleep.
- Delay and prevention of age-related diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and dementia.
- Acts as an anti-oxidant by reducing lipid oxidation and ROS.
- (Reactive oxygen species) along with normalizing T cell function.
- Improvement of skin health and appearance.
- Healing of injured and deteriorating muscle cells.
- Restores and normalizes melatonin levels in older people who have lost some pineal function due to aging.
- Can increases resistance to emotional stress.
Purity, Formulation & Physical Appearance
iPharmix Epithalon has a peptide purity level that exceeds 99.0% as determined by HPLC. This peptide was synthesized with no additives and is supplied as a white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Solubility & Storage
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Epithalon in bacteriostatic water, which can then be further diluted in other aqueous solutions. Lyophilized Epithalon although stable at room temperature for 90 days, should be stored between 2-8°C. Upon reconstitution, Epithalon should be stored between 2-8°C out of direct light for up to 14 days. For future use store below -18°C. Prevent repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
