Melanotan 2 is a complex substance representing the class of peptides. Its main purpose consists in increasing the synthesis of melanin pigment, the amount of which determines the hue of human skin and the susceptibility of the body to tan. The preparation is a complete analog of melanocortin peptide, which plays a key role in regulating the level of tanning. In practice, Melanotan 2, according to myriads of reviews, is a godsend for people with skin problems (especially for those suffering from sunburns or not able to achieve a uniform chocolate tan).
Melanotan 2 was obtained for the first time in research laboratories of Arizona. The preparation was originally developed as a remedy that prevents skin cancer. Later Melanotan 2 found its application in cosmetics and medicine as a remedy that increases libido and deals with erectile dysfunction.
Melanotan 2, in addition to accelerating getting the suntan, provides a good number of noteworthy positive effects, e.g.:
- Long-lasting, high-quality tan. When taking Melanotan you stimulate melanin synthesis and thus get an even tan without regular solarium visits or sunbathing. However, it is fair to note that the method is effective in terms of at least a minimum exposure to UV rays. Moreover, you can often expose your skin to the sun and thus significantly speed up the whole process, to achieve a darker tan as a result.
- Protection against the harmful effects of UV rays, preventing skin cancer. This effect is closely related to the previous one: Melanotan 2 enhances the synthesis of melanin, which in turn acts as a protective screen from UV rays. With Melanotan-2 you will never burn in the sun and protect the body against the possible development of melanoma.
- Enhancing sexual function. During the initial Melanotan 2 researches an interesting side effect has been revealed. Some subjects reported of a spontaneous erection, while more recent studies have confirmed the fact that the preparation can be used to eliminate problems with erection.
- Decrease in appetite. People on Melanotan 2 course indicated that the drug causes anorectic effect (suppresses appetite). Thus, MT2 also helps in controlling the weight carefully.
Melanotan 2 is recommended to be taken on a daily basis within 15-30 days timeframe. Usually, by the end of this period the desired shade of tan is achieved. Thereafter, in order to maintain a result, the drug can be administered every 3-4 days.
