MT-1(Melanotan I) Description
Melanotan 1 (also referred to as Afamelanotide) is a synthetic peptide variant of a peptide hormone, called alpha-Melanocyte stimulating hormone or MSH that is naturally produced in the body and is responsible for stimulating melanogenesis, a peptide process for pigmentation of the skin. Alpha-MSH activates certain melanocortin receptors in the process of exerting its effects. Indeed, MSH also exerts potent influence over lipid metabolism, appetite, and sexual libido via these melanocortin receptors. As a result, Melanotan-1 sunless skin tanning effects. While Melanotan 2 and PT-141 have been studied at length as a potential remedies for the treatment of sexual dysfunction, Melanotan-1 has been researched extensively for use in protecting against the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation from sunlight due to its melanogenesis-stimulating properties.
Both Melanotan-1 and Melanotan 2 are analogs of the peptide hormone alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α -MSH) that tend to induce skin tanning. Unlike Melanotan 1, Melanotan 2 has been shown to have aphrodisiac properties, the additional effect of increasing libido. Melanotan-1 is a non selective agonist of the melanocortin receptors (MC1R, MC3-5R). As an analogue of α -MSH, its mechanism of action is biomimicry of the natural mammalian tanning process.
As a result, Melanotan-1 sunless skin tanning effects. While Melanotan 2 and PT-141 have been studied at length as a potential remedies for the treatment of sexual dysfunction, Melanotan-1 has been researched extensively for use in protecting against the harmful effects of ultraviolet radiation from sunlight due to its melanogenesis-stimulating properties.
MT-1(Melanotan I) Effect
Melanotan 1 is an analogue of MSH, which is manufactured within the pituitary gland. It is classified as a melanocortin, and, like all melanocortins, it acts on certain physical systems which influence hair color, skin pigment, sexual arousal, sexual desire and appetite.
The more melanin the body produces, the darker the skin gets. This peptide will allow for self-tanning without UV exposure. This means that the body will grow tanned all over, even in places which aren’t exposed to sunlight. However, UV exposure will accelerate the tanning process in exposed areas. The role that UV exposure plays sometimes results in a tan which may not be perfectly even all over.
Most users find that they are most tanned on their faces, arms and stomachs. The genitals may also take on a tanned appearance during therapy with this peptide.
MT-1(Melanotan I) Dosage
Start with a dose of 1mg daily for the first two or three days and, if level of side effects permit, look to increase dosage by 0.25mg every day over the next several days until you reach a daily dosage of 2-3mg. This level should be adequate for most users, though some may wish to increase yet further, perhaps as high as 5mg daily in order to achieve a very deep tan. A maintenance phase as described above is then used.
