Copper peptide

  1. Description

Copper peptide GHK-Cu is a naturally occurring copper complex of the tripeptide glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine.    The tripeptide has strong affinity for copper(II) and was first isolated from human plasma.    It can be found also in saliva and urine.

  1. Features

In humans, GHK-Cu is proposed to promote wound healing, attraction of immune cells, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, stimulation of collagen and glycosaminoglycan synthesis in skin fibroblasts and promotion of blood vessels growth.   Recent studies revealed its ability to modulate expression of a large number of human genes, generally reversing gene expression to a healthier state.
