Exogenous human Peptides have been on the periphery of my consciousness/interest for some time but after following @Nootbro on Twitter (who I believe had "CFS" before experimenting with peptides) has spiked my interest.

I'm currently prioritising Nasal and Oral routes, as even though I am comfortable with Sub Q B12 et c., There is less guidance on Subq or IM peptides adminsitration.

Below is a summary in priority order of peptides I am currently interested in:

  1. BPC157 - seems to be most accessible and safest.
  2. Oxytocin - RE Joe Rogan Howard Bloom interview
  3. HCG - suggested by an M.E. Consultant
  4. Larozatide - Talk of its potential for Long Covid
  5. Vasoactive intestinal peptide - evidence for Leaky Gut and Mold
  6. Mots-C - evidence for mitochondrial restoration
  7. Thymosin Alpha - I know less about the following:
  8. LL-37 "
  9. HGH "
  10. TB500 "
Any more that people feel are worth adding to the list?

I would really appreciate (and I'm sure others would) collecting some data in the above poll. Initially just looking to collect info on which peptides people have interest in or have chosen to explore - feel free to reply with experiences.

It would then be interesting to have a secondary poll with purported benefits or side effects.

This is of course not medical advice in any way and just represents a discovery survey.

I responded for both TA-1 and TB-500. Inconsistent or unclear, but when noticeable, rather positive results from both of these peptides for me.
In the last four months I’ve tried cycles of: BPC157, TB500, TA1, LL37, Epitalon and MOTS-C.

I’ve had good results with a noticeable increase in my baseline from severe to mod-severe.

Currently still on MOTS-C, going to try GHK-Cu (with BPC) and CJC1295/Ipamorelin next. And cycle back on to TA1.

I do subQ research peptides. I haven’t been able to find a domestic source for VIP in my country but I would try that if I could.

Always keen to hear any thoughts or insights on peptides from pwme.

I am taking compounded prescriptions of 2 peptides, a CJC/Ipamorelin combination and Dihexa. The CJC/Ipamorelin helps with HGH secretion, and Dihexa helps repair broken synapses.

My out-of-the-box doctor prescribed the CJC/Ipamorelin because I've had health problems for so long. She said that although everyone has decreased HGH when they are older, that's especially true for those with chronic health problems. HGH helps with tissue repair.

She prescribed Dihexa because my genetic test shows that I don't repair synapses as well as I should. I was interested trying this since my father died from Alzheimer's complications, and his 2 nieces died of that disease in their 50s.

I first tried the CJC/Ipamorelin and have noticed better sleep and a little better cognition. I've also noticed that my eyebrows are no longer sparse, a minor benefit, but nice because I'm vain! Benefits accrue the longer people are on it.

Dihexa has definitely helped my cognition, even though I take a very low dose and just every other day.

These 2 peptides can be very expensive, but my doctor sends them to a compounding prescription that keeps the price a good deal lower than what you see on the internet. I take both orally rather than in injections.
