What is Dihexa?
Dihexa comes from the microglia (janitor cells of the CNS) angiotensin 4 analogue. So, it binds to and up regulates hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), potentiating its activity at its receptors in brain cells, making dihexa strongly neurotrophic.
Dihexa thus increases neuron dopamine uptake, increases neuron branching, ups cell differentiation, and protects against tissue insults.
Uses of Dihexa
- In MS. MS is an autoimmune disease of the brain that targets oligodendrocytes and myelin.
- HGF in the brain promotes recovery by accelerating re-myelination
Administration of Dihexa
- Topical cream. Applied to a forearm QD. Less than six weeks. Can be used in combination with many other peptide growth factors.
- Also orally bioavailable.
Risks of Dihexa
- No toxicity. Let’s see those big Pharma pop-ups on the Internet that treat MS match that.
- Because it’s a strong growth factor, the main caution is to aggressively R/O cancer first.
