PT-141 for Men
What is PT-141?
PT-141 was developed from the peptide Melanotan 2, which is a synthetically produced variant of a
peptide hormone naturally produced in the body that stimulates melanogenesis that is known as alpha-
Melanocyte stimulating hormone. PT-141 has been shown in studies to provide libido-enhancing effects by
activating the melanocortin receptors MC1R and MC4R, without tanning the skin.
PT-141 is a potential remedy for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction and male erectile dysfunction.
Studies have shown that PT-141 does not act on the vascular system, but may increase sexual desire
through the nervous system.
