Oxytocin Peptide Overview

Oxytocin is a small peptide comprising only nine amino acids, produced in the hypothalamus and secreted by the posterior pituitary. It is also produced by the placenta, ovaries, testes, and even adrenal glands, thymus, retina, and pancreas. The active hormone is obtained by proteolytic cleavage of a larger precursor protein. It is no longer considered merely a neurohypophyseal hormone as its effects are far-reaching and include other peptides.
Oxytocin is aptly defined as one protein with two independent natural functions. First, it is a neuropeptide produced by the hypothalamus and regulates bonding, sexual reproduction, and childbirth. Oxytocin is not only bloodborne but also secreted by the placenta of pregnant women to influence childbirth, milk production, and bonding with newborns. Small amounts of the protein produced from testes in men promote mating behavior and pair bonding.

Oxytocin Research

Oxytocin in Wound Healing
Oxytocin regulates inflammation through inflammatory cytokines. Increased social interaction between 37 couples was observed to trigger Pitocin levels and leads to faster wound healing. Similarly, a hostile equation between couples suppresses oxytocin production and delays wound healing by 40%. These hostile couples also show reduced IL-6, tumor necrosis factor-alpha, and IL-1beta at the wound site.

Cardiovascular Risk
The hormone has been speculated to protect cardiac and vascular systems. It promotes fat burning, controls blood pressure, improves glucose intolerance, and relieves anxiety. The above factors influence cardiovascular disease (CVD), and thus Pitocin can be an important adjuvant for existing CVD treatment.
Reduced oxytocin receptors can cause atherosclerosis. Oxytocin treatment overcomes the drawback of reduced receptor density and helps maintain cardiac integrity.
Direction injection of the peptide in hearts of rats during a heart attack can prevent cellular death of cardiomyocytes. Jankoski et. al. suggested that late-term development of dilated cardiomyopathy can be addressed by chronic Endopituitrina treatment. It also helps to prime the cardiac stem cells for “tissue regeneration through direct differentiation, secretion of protective and cardiomyogenic factors, and/or their fusion with injured cardiomyocytes.”
It further controls cardiac damage due to diabetes in mice. The fat accumulation in these mice was reduced by 19%, and the fasting glucose levels by about 23%. Endopituitrina improves insulin resistance in the animals, and establishes proper systolic and diastolic functions over control animals leading to decreased cardiomyocyte hypertrophy, fibrosis, and apoptosis.
It protects against ischemic injuries in other tissues as well apart from the heart. Rats with priapism (persistent erection) indicate the benefit of Pitocin administration against ischemia-reperfusion injury by reducing nitric oxide levels.

Diabetes Management
The peptide improves glucose uptake by skeletal muscles by boosting insulin sensitivity. It further enhances lipid utilization, dyslipidemia, and body fat mass reduction. Oxytocin deficiency causes obesity even with normal food uptake and exercise, proving its role in energy homeostasis.
Oxytocin affects insulin, glucose, and body composition in obese mice but not in lean mice. The observations prove that the peptide might be beneficial in certain settings only. The backdrop of diabetes triggers different effects on patients compared to the absence of diabetes. Intranasal application of the peptide decreases levels of glucose, insulin, and exercises about 9 kg weight losses during the eight weeks of trial. As per Barengolts, “circulating oxytocin is lower in type 2 diabetes versus normoglycemic subjects and negatively correlated with glycosylated hemoglobin A1C and insulin resistance.”

Cognitive Performance
Maternal deprivation at a young age can cause irreversible cognitive and behavioral functioning changes that can last a lifetime. Mice models show oxytocin change due to less parental bonding can be a prominent cause. Oxytocin treatment in maternally deprived mice increased hormone levels for neuronal development in the prefrontal cortex. Overall behavior remains constant, but the cognitive ability is improved in the cohort exposed to oxytocin. Intranasal oxytocin improves learning in mice in the backdrop of stress.

Oxytocin Peptide Research and Anxiety
The hormone has been related to anxiety and depression. The genetic polymorphisms in the Endopituitrina receptor gene cause social anxiety disorder and problems with attachment in childhood. Untreated patients with social anxiety have also displayed epigenetic changes in the oxytocin receptor. This indicates a possible compensatory pathway for pathologically suppressed oxytocin levels. This indicates that social anxiety can be partially triggered by diminished oxytocin signaling.
Oxytocin dysregulation can lead to borderline personality disorder (BPD) as well. BPD triggers hypervigilance toward threats, extreme mistrust, and altered non-verbal social behavior. Patients given intranasal oxytocin with BPD have shown positive behavioral alterations. BPD is extremely challenging to treat and has significant short- and long-term effects on quality of life; therefore, oxytocin can help understand the pathology leading to better treatment.

Pitocin Research and Hunger
Research in a condition (Prader-Willi syndrome) marked by uncontrolled appetite has revealed that at least part of the pathology results from increased suppression of Pitocin signaling. Therefore, Endopituitrina is observed to play a role in regulating hunger state and feeding behavior.

Oxytocin and Old Muscle
Oxytocin also regulates muscle maintenance. Hence, age-associated reduction in molecule levels leads to muscle wasting (sarcopenia). The research carried out at Berkeley suggests that both blood levels of the peptide and its receptors on muscle stem cells decrease with age. Exogenous use of oxytocin allows muscles to recover much of their healing potential. According to Elabd, one of the authors of the research, “repair of muscle in the old mice was at about 80 percent” compared to younger mice after oxytocin was administered. Thus it can be potentially used to treat age-related organ degeneration and thereby slow down dysfunction.
The peptide exhibits minimal side effects, low oral bioavailability, and excellent subcutaneous bioavailability in mice. Per kg dosage in mice does not match the dose required in humans.

    I was a bit unsure at first, especially ordering such products, but they made it very easy and the whole process was seamless. I will come back for more

  2. Laron Hall

    I will always get my peptides from Biotech in the future

  3. Adeline Reid

    So far everything seems decent. I havent put it to the test yet but Im happy so far

  4. Laron Hall

    This was my second attempt at ordering peptides from an online supplier, Im just glad I actually recieved my order. My first attempt didnt go so well and I had to file a chargeback because I never received the products. thanks for the top notch service.

  5. Velvet Viper

    For Growth hormone secretagogues, this is my go-to vendor. Getting in contact with the company was smooth and quick.

  6. Avani Ross

    First-time customer. Ordering was easy, needed one product that is out of stock. Will see how this first-order goes and then maybe try again with the product that was out of stock as well.

  7. Sebastian Cook

    They’re a little smaller than I imagined, still good though! wish it was a little bigger.

  8. Lea Ceasrine

    they are really great at making the customer feel heard and the whole “customer is always right” motto. called and let them know my stuff was late and feels like because of that the peptides were damaged. didn’t argue or give me a hard time. they sent out new ones. it was relieving because I’ve had other companies just leave me stranded with nothing. so real nice service and this time stuff came in a day.

  9. Jeremy Chidester

    Haven’t needed a peptide they didn’t have yet. Very large range of products

  10. Peilin Hu

    海關無問題 純正貨品

  11. Dylan Lou

    I have tested the peptides out, and they are legitimate. They help my research floruish and I see more of a difference with these peptides then with my previous supplier.

  12. Brett Loewenstein

    They came highly recommended by a buddy of mine at work. I see what all the rave is about. Good stuff!

  13. Dennis Burcaw

    Stuggled to find a permenant peptide supplier. I belive my struggle has ended. Incredible company.

  14. Aaron Grant

    My peptides came in quickly and safley! Packaging was great and didn’t feel like the peptides would be unsafe.

  15. Eric Wilson

    The peptides are proving themselves to be of the highest quality. I have used different companies in the past few years and nothing compares to Biotechs bunch.

  16. Jon L.

    They came highly recommeneded by many so had to test them out. From my expeirnce everything that’s been reported to me is ture. They do have great cutomer service, I think I had been going back and forth with taylor. Did not wait long for responces and my package came in less than 2 days. Nothing was broken but have seem some reviews stating it could happen, so i’ll be on the lookout for a potential situation. All is good with biotech however.

  17. Allie Thompson

    I was struggeling To place my order as it seems the site was glitching. I eventually was able to order it but seems strange that was happening.

  18. marc dennings

    There’s no where else i’d suggest to anybody looking to purchase peptides.

  19. Liz Brooks

    Reading their up-to-date blogs is something I look forward to doing. They’re informative and keep me up to date on the newest developments in the field of peptides. There is a particular peptide mentioned in the blog, which saves me time by not having to hunt it up on my own. It’s one of my favorite aspects of the website.

  20. Seth Kluesner

    Exceptional customer service and clear, timely communication are the norm at this company.

  21. josh brooks

    I was concerned about the temperature and making certain that no goods was damaged or wrecked, but they all seemed to be in fine condition to me when I examined them.

  22. Gabe ting

    I think you guys should definitely switch your delivery company. You have amazing products, but you are gonna lose a lot of customers by letting the delivery company ruin your packaging. Not worth it for you

  23. Zachary Kosloy

    Great quality peptides, long shelf life as well when you follow the correct directions.

  24. Nathan Glasswell

    Staff is trained well and were able to help me locate my order that looked to be stuck in transit. Danny was able to send me discount code for my next purchase and even resent this order as the delay would most probably affect the peptides.

  25. Kev Nguyen

    Very happy customer here.

  26. Angelo Mae de Vera

    Very quick process. In and out in a breeze. Very cool

  27. Geroge Boerstler

    Best peptide hormone out there
