10mg Melanotan II (MT2)
Melanotan II belongs to a group of peptides called the melanotropin peptides. Other peptides belonging to this group are ACTH (adrenocortropic hormone) and the melanocyte-stimulating hormones (MSH).
The MSHs contribute to pigmentation and also play a role as a hypothalamic satiety signal . Melanocortins also have been demonstrated to play a role in lipolysis of adipocytes, thermal control, sexual function, and cognition [1, 2]. Further, leptin exerts its action partly by activation of the melanocortin system in the brain . Further, the MCR (melanocortin receptors), to which MTII binds, play a key role in eating behavior in humans ; Perboni et al write: MC4R activity affects meal size and meal choice but not meal frequency, with the type of diet affecting the efficacy of MC4R agonists to reduce food intake .
