Does anyone know anything about, or have experience with, peptide injections
That's a bit like saying does anyone have any experience with pharmaceutical drugs. There are lots of peptides, and they each have different effects.

Researching Mots-C and came across some links.

First, apparently Mots-C can influence Sphingolipid metabolism: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31293078

Ben Greenfield Fitness did 8 week trial of Mots-C but don't know the results: https://www.facebook.com/BGFitness/...cg-of-mots-c-and-100-mcg-o/10157347842074179/

He interviewed a peptide expert and they discuss Mots-C. Here: https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/podcast/supplements-podcasts/what-are-peptides/ and here: https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/podcast/peptides-jean-francois/

I don't like that Jean Francois guy.He is viewed like a prophet on peptides but his attitude that 'peptides do no harm' is false and dangerous.He dismisses negative feedback, I remember specifically him denying that BPC-157 can downregulate the dopamine system and cause anhedonia.When someone posted a study on this he was still reluctant to admit it and was mincing words.

Anyway, I'm interested in mots-c because I know patients with cfs that have been helped a lot.I'm gonna ask but does anyone here know the dosage for this?

@beatsmyth I would love to hear how your experiment with Mots-C goes.

Looks like it inhibits the folate cycle, leading to possibility of accumulation of homocystiene. One thing to be careful of. "In addition, the authors observe an accumulation of homocysteine following MOTS-c application, the former being a well-established risk factor of cardiovascular disease and particularly atherosclerosis"

I'm into week two of MOTS-C. Its been sitting in my refrigerator for 4 months and finally decided to try it. It seems to have helped exercise some, but on the 6th and 7th days I was extremely sleepy. Wondering if it depleted folate and/or B12... Seeing what happens this week.
