MT-2 Muscle Building Peptides 10 mg/vial Melanotan 2 CAS 121062-08-6 Pharmaceutical Peptides
Melanotan 2 (MT-2) is a man-made version of alpha melanocyte stimulating hormone (MSH), a melanocortin peptide hormone. It was first synthesized by researchers at the University of Arizona for melanogenesis, and to increase libido effects in men. The peptide mimics melanogenesis and UV-protective effects of Melanotan 1.
However, recent research evidences suggest aphrodisiac effects of Melanotan 2. Due to protective effects against harmful UV rays, it is being studied as a potential prophylaxis against melanoma (skin cancer). The synthetic chemical is contraindicated for consumption, diagnosis or treatment in humans, and strictly for research purpose only. The molecular weight and formula is 1024.2 and C50H69N15O9, respectively.
Melanotan II (also known as MT-II or MT-2) is an injectable peptide hormone used to promote tanning. MT-II works by stimulating alpha-melanocyte receptors, which promotes formation of melanin in response to sun exposure. When a substantial amount of MT-II has been taken within recent "memory" of the skin cells, an individual tans as if he were a genetically darker type.

If you look hard enough out there, you will find some weird and wonderful dosaging schedules whereby the user calculates their daily dosage by multiplying their bodyweight by a cofactor. Perhaps this approach has been adopted since this has been the method employed in the ongoing clinical studies. Typically, this type of formula would suggest a dose of 1mg of MT-II per day for someone weighing in at a mere 110lb (50kg).
The cynical among us might be forgiven for thinking that these formulae are constructed by those with a personal interest in the sale of the product as I believe this to be more than necessary to achieve a great result. Indeed, there are many instances whereby users feel they have become too dark.
While I have no problem with a bodyweight dosage scale in principle, I can't help thinking that it's not only unnecessary (particularly for the mathematically challenged), but also avoids the ability to gradually increase dosages from a relatively low level; something which I would advocate to assess individual tolerance levels to side effects, especially in the case of MT-II.
How to use Melanotan 2
Mixing the solution
Flip off the cap from the Melanotan 2 Tanning Injection vial.
Wipe the surface of the top of the vial with the enclosed alcohol wipe and discard the wipe.
Wipe the surface of the injectable water tube (or glass water vial depending on the pack ordered) with the enclosed alcohol wipe and discard the wipe.
Remove the enclosed syringe from the packaging. Making sure the injectable water tube is upright, insert the needle of the syringe into the sidewall of the water.
Now pull back the plunger of the syringe so you withdraw 1ml of water and slowly pull the syringe out.
Insert the syringe into the Melanotan 2 Tanning Injection vial and depress the plunger so you completely empty the syringe of the water and slowly remove the syringe from the vial. Do not shake the solution.
Place the Melanotan 2 solution in the fridge for storage until ready for use.
Make sure you put the syringe caps on and carefully dispose of it.
You have now mixed your Melanotan 2 Tanning Injection solution. Please store the solution in the fridge.
Melanotan II is typically provided in vials containing 10 mg of lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder. The vials are reconstituted with a convenient amount of bacteriostatic or sterile water, added to the vial by syringe. An example convenient amount of water is 2.5 mL. When this amount of water is used, the resulting solution contains 4 mg of MT-II per mL. If for example wishing to take a dose of 1 mg, a volume of 0.25 mL, or "25 IU" as marked on an insulin syringe, would be taken by injection. Injection may be subcutaneous, intramuscular, or intravenous, according to personal preference.
Injection typically is only once per day, but where a person is first trying the drug and judging tolerance, injection may be divided into two smaller amounts per day.
Typical dosage range is 0.5 to 2.0 mg/day, with a preferred range of 0.5 to 1.0 mg/day. However, it's best to first assess tolerance with lower dosing of 0.25 mg at a time.
After reconstitution, a Melanotan II vial should preferably be consumed entirely within 30 days. Prior to reconstitution, MT-II should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer, but it's acceptable for it to be shipped without refrigeration.
Use generally should be discontinued if MT-II, in the individual case, causes problems with increased growth, number, or darkness of moles.
Melanotan II's effect is fairly long-lasting. It can even be the case that it takes a year or more for a cycle's effect to largely disappear. Use of maintenance cycles can maintain effect indefinitely. As a rule of thumb, maintenance typically requires about 2 to 3 times as much MT-II per year as was needed for the first cycle. This can be taken either as a total of 2 to 3 cycles per year done in the same way as the initial cycle, or any more frequent dosing pattern providing this total amount of MT-II per year.
