Epitalon (Epithalamin): Potential Anti-Aging Compound

Epitalon (Epithalamin) is a peptide studied and utilized for its anti-aging effects. It has been shown to be a potent anti-oxidant, comparable to melatonin, and may confer longevity benefits. Keep reading to learn more about Epitalon and its health effects. Disclaimer : By writing this post, we are not recommending this drug. Some of our readers who were already taking the drug requested that we commission a post on it, and we are simply providing information that is available in the clinical and scientific literature. Epitalon is a synthetic peptide made of four amino acids (alanine, glutamic acid, aspartic acid, and glycine), that is based on a natural peptide called epithalamin extracted from the pineal gland. It was synthesized by Vladimir Khavinson, a Russian professor and gerontologist, whose research focused on the development of peptide preparations used to restore function in various organs in order to prevent and reverse the aging process. He is currently the Director of the Saint Petersburg Institute of Bioregulation and Gerontology. Khavinson first extracted Epithalamin from the pineal gland of calves, however, due to the inherent limitations in production, he formulated a synthetic version of the peptide called Epitalon. Epitalon is usually administered via intravenous or intramuscular injection or transdermally (through the skin), as peptides are broken down in the digestive tract and therefore unable to enter the bloodstream intact where they can exert their effects. Most of the research has been conducted in animals, with a few clinical trials, and the results have been, in a word, promising. What the Research Shows for Epitalon When the peptide was administered to fruit flies during the larval stage, it was shown to increase the average lifespan by 11-16 percent [ 1 ]. In a study on rats exposed to equal amounts of light and darkness, […]
