How To Mix And Store BPC 157

BPC 157, short for Body Protection Compound 157, is a peptide derived from a protein found in the human stomach. Proper handling and storage of the peptide is crucial to maintain its efficacy.

In this blog, we are going to look at how to correctly store and mix BPC 157.

  1. List of all of the items you need before mixing BPC-157:
    • BPC 157 peptide vial (lyophilized powder form)
    • Appropriate Mixing Solution
    • Alcohol swabs
    • Sterile syringe and needle
    • A clean, flat surface
  2. Preparation Steps for mixing BPC 157:
    • Wash your hands thoroughly.
    • Wipe the tops of both the BPC 157 vial and the mixing solution vial with an alcohol swab.
  3. Mixing Process For BPC 157:
    • Put the desired amount of bacteriostatic water into the syringe. The amount can vary, but generally speaking, common dilution is 1ml of bacteriostatic water for a 5 mg vial of BPC 157, making dosing calculations easier.
    • Put the needle into the BPC 157 vial at an angle to avoid hitting the powder directly. Slowly inject the bacteriostatic water into the vial, aiming for the side of the glass. This helps the water to gently roll down and mix with the peptide powder.
    • Once all the water is in the vial, swirl the vial to ensure the powder completely dissolves, do NOT shake the vial. You will know the mixture is complete when the solution is clear with no particles.

Storing BPC-157

Just as important as the mixing of the peptide is, storage of BPC 157 is equally as vital. Here is the best way to store BPC 157:

  1. Storing BPC 157 In A Refrigeration:
    • Store the BPC 157 in the refrigerator at a temperature between 2°C and 8°C (35°F to 46°F), as this helps preserve the peptide’s potency. Do not freeze the solution, as this can damage the peptide structure.
  2. Avoid Putting BPC 157 In Heat and Light:
    • Light and heat can degrade the peptide, reducing its effectiveness so it is very important to keep the vial away from direct light and heat sources.
  3. Shelf Life Of BPC 157:
    • Once mixed, BPC 157 typically remains stable for up to 4 weeks when stored correctly in the refrigerator. Still, it is important to check the expiration date on the vial and avoid using it beyond this date.
  4. Transporting BPC 157:
    • If you need to transport the peptide, you need to make sure it remains cool. We would recommend using an insulated container with ice packs to maintain a stable temperature during transit.

Safety and Handling Of BPC 157

  • Contamination Prevention: Ensure your syringe and needle are new and sterile for each use, to prevent contamination.
  • Hygiene: A clean environment is very important to, again, avoid contamination and ensure proper hygiene practices.
