Epithalon

Epithalon is a peptide that contains a molecular weight of 390.3459, and its molecular formula is C14H22N4O9.  Its structural integrity consists of four amino acids.  It occasionally goes by the following names:

  • CID2192042
  • LS-72251
  • Epitalon
  • Epithalone

It is derived from the pineal gland; a gland of the endocrine system that is typically linked to the regulation and control of several processes relating to the growth and development of animal test subjects.

Epithalon and Telomeres

According to scientific study that has been conducted on animal test subjects, it has been determined that Epithalon’s functionality can be directly tied to the part of a cell that is responsible for maintaining the integrity of the genetic code.  This part, known as telomeres, essentially acts as a binding agent of a DNA sequence found within the animal test subject’s cell for purposes of maintaining genetic homeostasis.  This binding can be accomplished because of the secretion of an enzyme known as telomerase, which serves to keep the length of the telomeres consistent through the process of cellular division.  Over time, however, the secretion of the enzyme ceases, thus causing the binding of the DNA code to lose strength and length with each subsequent cell division.  Eventually, they become too weak to contain the DNA and it unravels, inadvertently causing the DNA to become scattered.  When this scattering happens, the information held within becomes disrupted in the sense that the animal test subject cannot decode it properly.  When this happens, the body reacts by enabling the aging process to kick in.

Scientific study that has been conducted on animal test subjects has determined that Epithalon has the ability to increase the production of telomerase.   By extension, it has been shown a faculty to boost the overall length and strength of telomeres, which enables for a stronger sense of integrity within an animal test subjects’ DNA sequencing to take place.  Ultimately, this functionality would enable the aging process and the subsequent effects of said process to be delayed.

Beneficial Properties

Due to the way in which Epithalon has been shown to operate, scientific study based on animal test subjects has determined that it can hold a host of properties that can be deemed as beneficial.

The most prominent of these benefits ties into its link to an animal test subject’s biological age.  Because of the way in which it can promote a boost in the integrity of telomeres, it is thought that its presence can slow down the physicological properties and internal processes that could degrade at a slower rate than its chronological age.  In other words, an older animal test subject could conceivably display tendencies and behaviors that are more consistent with an animal test subject that is younger.

In turn, this theorized benefit could be linked to Epithalon being instrumental in prohibiting the onset of a host of potentially deadly diseases that is at least partially associated with the overall process of aging.  These diseases would include issues like cancer, stroke, heart failure, or a lessening of mental function such as dementia.  Additionally, its abilities have also led to the notion that its functionality could make it easier for scientific study to pinpoint the triggers that signify the onset of such issues.

Further scientific study that has been conducted on animal test subjects has determined that Epithalon could be linked to the act of lipolysis; that is, the act in which fatty acids are broken down  Because its processes ultimately lead to an elevated sense of homeostasis within an animal test subject’s body, it is thought to be able to boost a host of regulatory processes that have shown a tendency to degrade over time.  One of these processes that it has been linked to is the allowance of an aging animal test subject the ability to break down body fat at a rate that would normally be seen for a younger animal test subject.  Other age-degraded processes that it could conceivably help with include flexibility, reaction time, libido, and the ability to fight off minor illnesses that are not considered to be life threatening.

For Scientific Research Only

Even though there has been an extensive amount of research and study conducted in relation to Epithalon and its overall functionality, operational mechanics, and theorized benefits, it needs to be noted that all of the research that has been conducted and the subsequent results from such research has been solely built around the scientific study based on animal test subjects.  The peptide is only intended for the use of scientific study at this point in time.  Therefore, any findings or observations that relate to Epithalon’s overall functionality, mechanics, or theoretical benefits, should only be contained to the strict confines of a controlled environment such as a medical research facility or a laboratory.
