Melanotan 1

Researchers have discovered a new compound called Melanotan 1 that functions similarly to a hormone in the body. It is not to be mistaken with melatonin, which is used to induce sleep. It can also be used to ward off cancer from excessive sun exposure.

What Exactly is Melanotan 1:

Melanogenisis or melanin production is induced by Melanotan I, a synthesized melanocyte-stimulating hormone (a-MSH). Melanotan I is also known as afamelanotide. Light absorption, reflection, and refraction by melanin in the skin help to keep cells healthy. Melanotan I protects UV-exposed skin by turning cells into dark, protective melanin, and also protects from further sun damage.

What is Melanotan 1 Known For?

Melanotan 1 is safe to use in conjunction with UV B rays or sunlight, and it appears to work in concert with it to enhance the tanning process.
It decreases the sun and indoor tanning bed ultraviolet light exposure, reducing the risk of skin cancer and other skin problems
Melanotan I can darken and tan your skin if you want.

When someone has an enzyme deficiency called erythropoietic protoporphyria, caused by an absence of the enzyme ferrochelatase, doctors prescribe the peptide Melanotan I to protect them from phototoxicity. Sunshine and some fluorescent lighting cause pain to people with this condition. An excessive amount of protoporphyrin builds up in bone marrow and other blood components due to unusually low amounts of this enzyme.

Melanotan I is a prophylactic treatment for various light-related skin disorders and a possible future skin cancer preventative agent for enhancing skin tanning for specific light-related skin indications.



Side Effects:

Injectable tans are a source of great concern due to the lack of oversight they currently enjoy. There is no way to ensure that a product has been correctly labelled without proper regulation. Melanotan I’s long-term effects are also largely unknown.

Melanotan 1 may cause temporary side effects such as nausea, skin flushes, weight loss, and drowsiness or fatigue.
