Intestinal and Stomach Healing

GHK-Cu has potent effects on the healing of stomach ulcers and intestinal inflammations. One small human study found a very positive effect of GHK-Cu on the healing of intestinal lesions in persons with refractory inflammatory bowel disease.

Healing of stomach and intestinal ulcers 

GHK-Cu was tested for healing of experimental stomach ulcers and intestinal damage in rats.

Cytoprotective actions against oxygen free radicals
GHK-Cu markedly inhibited intestinal mucosal tissue from lipid peroxidation by oxygen-derived free radicals

Human Study - Inflammatory bowel disease

16 patients with refractory inflammatory bowel disease were treated with rectally administered solutions of GHK-Cu.

After the 12 weeks treatment, there was a 60% reduction in severity bas measured by endoscopy, histopathology, and symptoms
