How Vilon Peptides May Counteract Aging
Vilon peptide also reduces and prevents the prevalence/risk of cancer development and succession. Vilon research also proves that the peptide can modulate the vascular system and improve hemostasis. All these peptide functions prove that it can be an excellent geroprotective agent.
The Medical Benefits and Functions of Vilon Peptide
How Vilon Influences Cancer:
One of Villon’s functions and medical benefits is the reduction of cancer prevalence. However, Vilon action results show that the peptide reduces cancer incidence and can prevent cancer progression in cancer patients. Vilon peptide can be considered both a potent chemotherapeutic agent and potent addition to the arsenal for cancer treatment and surgery due to this effect.
It is important to note that the Vilon is still under review to see if its efficacy against cancer is beneficial when administered alone or in combination with other anticancer regimens.
The Benefits of Vilon Peptide in Aging:
Vilon is a potent anti-aging peptide. When the peptide is administered subcutaneously, it boosts physical activities and endurance. Consequent to these Vilon peptide effects, lifespan is extended. This is of great importance because the prolonged administration of the peptide exhibits no adverse effect.
Research results suggest that the Vilon peptide is most potent when administered early in life than at old age. However, when the peptide is administered at old age, it can reverse senescence in existing cells but can not reverse or be effective in cells that have been eliminated after apoptosis.
The anti-aging effect of the Vilon peptide extends to the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract). Here, the peptide enhances enzyme activity in the GI tract. Vilon also increases barrier function, thereby decreasing the development of leaky gut, improving disease resistance, and bettering the overall GI tract health. The peptide also increases the absorption of glucose and glycine in the small intestine.
The peptide effects mentioned above work together to maintain nutrient extraction with age, thus improving overall well-being and longevity.
The Function of Vilon in the Immune System:
Vilon peptide is an effective modulator of chromatin structure. The following are related functions: the peptide induces unrolling of chromatin, activates synthetic processes by reactivating ribosomal genes in the unrolled chromatin, releases repressed genes, and does not induce the decondensation of pericentromeric chromatin structure.
The overall benefits of these functions scale down to the reactivation of genes in the DNA that are silent.
Chromatin exists in two states: wound (heterochromatin) and unwound (euchromatin). The apparatus that converts genes into proteins and functional components of the cell cannot access the heterochromatin state. Genes in these DNA regions are unavailable for protein production in general.
Chromatin also modulates the genes available for transcription, and it is a way that different cells or the same cells can have varying functions over a period. Chromatin condensation is one of the causes of aging and senescence and why tissues lose functions with age. The ability of the peptide to reactivate these cells by heterochromatin unraveling can restore immune function in the elderly. The result is evident in lymphocytes—white blood cells of the immune system like the killer cells, T cells, and B cells that produce antibodies and coordinate immune response to pathogens such as cancer.
The peptide also activates interleukin-2 signaling in splenocytes coupled with Vilon activity in lymphocytes. There is protection against microbial infections, and natural protection against autoimmune reactions, due to the activation of splenocytes and lymphocytes.
Vilon plays a role in the thymus, where it increases CD5 T-cell proliferation. CD5 T-cells and cytotoxic CD8 T-cells are a marker of mature T-helper cells. CD8 T-cells are anti-microbial cells, and CD5 T-cells regulate the immune system and prevent autoimmune reactions in the body.
In a nutshell, the Vilon peptide only rejuvenates immune functions by reactivating genes that are silent by chromatin changes. It cannot reactivate genes that are naturally silent in the affected cells. Vilon enhances the immune system while it prevents autoimmune reactions.
The Functions of Vilon Peptide in the Heart and Kidney:
Scientists believe that the Vilon peptide is beneficial in the vascular system. However, this is not well studied and does not have enough results to support this notion. Nonetheless, the Vilon peptide modulates the expression of 36 and more different genes in the heart. When added to Epithalon, the number jumps to 144 genes. This posits that the Vilon peptide can modulate gene expression patterns in the CVS, which may improve hemodynamic function.
In the kidney, Vilon peptide reduces transforming growth factor-beta-1 concentration and the micro vessel permeability. Resulting in better hemostasis following kidney failure.
Patients with diabetes exhibited optimized coagulation on the administration of Vilon. The peptide increases natural anticoagulant antithrombin III levels and Protein C while enhancing fibrinolysis. This will result in fewer blood clots in the clotting-prone population.
