What Is Melanotan II?
Melanotan is a peptide that was developed and tested for skin cancer treatment. While studies did not show it’s benefit for application and use with melanoma, some other positive benefits were encountered.
As a synthetic peptide hormone it is very effective at acting as an agonist for the melanocortin receptors. This then triggers the production of melanin, which is what causes the darkening of the skin. In natural process this happens through the exposure to UV rays. However, Melanotan does this without the need for sun exposure.
It can also achieve tanning 10 times faster than natural processes would.
How Does It Work?
As a synthetic agonist, Melanotan binds to the melanocortin receptors in the body. There are 2 of these receptors that result in the effects of this peptide, which trigger the main benefits.
The first receptor MC1 is the one that triggers the production and release of melanin. With the use of the peptide it does so up to 10 times faster than would happen in the natural skin tanning processes that take place with sun exposure.
MC4 is the receptor that is mainly the cause of the sexual effects known to be triggered by Melanotan. For men this can help trigger erections within a few hours of injection.
What Are The Benefits?
While originally developed for skin cancer treatment, it’s ironic that the main reported benefit is natural skin tanning process. This is achieved by tricking the body into producing the skin darkening substance melanin. Studies have also shown some other benefits to be aware of:
1 – Natural Skin Darkening
One of the most notable effects of Melanotan is that it triggers mechanisms that cause natural darkening of the skin (S 1, 4).
2 – Helps With Erectile Dysfunction
Within a few hours, the synthetic peptide will cause erections in men, which studies have shown to be an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction (S 2).
3 – Fat Loss
Increased levels of fat burning have has been shown in studies with varying amounts of Melanotan usage (S 4).
4 – Reduces Need For UV Exposure
Because the skin tanning happens in a natural way, the results look the same as UV induced tans. However, the benefit is that no UV exposure is necessary, thereby reducing harmful sun exposure.
What Are The Side Effects
As with all synthetic peptides there are some side effects that have been reported during extensive studies. The most notable one is nausea which can fluctuate significantly during short and longer term use.
Here are the main side effects reported in studies:
1 – Nausea
Tests have shown that one of the main side effects is varying degrees of nausea. These tend to be intermittent and fully reversible (S 1).
2 – Decreased Appetite
Studies showed that a decreased appetite was common during use of the peptide. Once the dosage was reduced or stopped, these symptoms fully reversed (S 2).
3 – Sudden Tiredness
Test studies also reported sudden tiredness with an increased need for stretching and yawning (S 1).
