PT 141 is a melanocortin based peptide that can address the problem of sexual dysfunction, for both men who have erectile dysfunction or impotence and women with sexual arousal disorder. It can be an alternative to Viagra or Cialis.
It is a peptide developed from the Melanotan II peptide, which was originally tested as a sunless tanning agent, but it also seemed to cause sexual arousal and spontaneous erections in 9 out of the 10 original male volunteer test subjects. In phase 2B of its clinical trial it was tested on premenopausal women and it was shown to help with sexual arousal disorder.
Unlike Viagra and other similar medications, it does not act in the vascular system, but directly increases sexual desire with the nervous system. It stimulates and activates the dopamine hormones that happen to play a major role in sexual motivation. Dopamine is a known compound in the body, it’s a neurotransmitter that stimulates performance. When you have low levels of dopamine, your libido is lowered.
Possible Side Effects:
Fleeting bouts of headache, nausea, and flushing were experienced by some people when dosed too high. It was pointed out that the headaches experienced from well-known ED medications like Cialis and Viagra were more intense and lasted far longer than those who experienced them with PT 141.
