PT-141 Bremelanotide, is a modified synthetic derivative of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormonea that is used to treat sexual dysfunction in men and women.
PT-141 is considered an effective treatment for both erectile dysfunction and increased libido in men and can improve female sexual arousal disorder in women.
PT-141 is now used to treat sexual dysfunction in men and women, but it was not primarily created for this purpose. The synthetic peptide blend was developed from Melanotan II, a hormone that can darken skin pigmentation and promote tanning.
Typical users of PT-141 are those who lack desire or receptivity of sexual intercourse, lack the ability to become aroused, have a decreased sensation, experience pain with intercourse, have the inability to achieve an orgasm or have emotional issues (shame, anxiety, embarrassment or reduced interest).
Mechanism of Action
PT 141 works directly through the nervous system to increase arousal, desire, and satisfaction with sex.
PT-141 is a nonselective agonist that binds to melanocortin receptors. PT-141 peptide therapy activates the dopamine hormones which enhance sexual performance and stimulate sexual motivation.
