Melanotan (MT) and Melanotan II (MT-II) are both analogs of the alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) which is produced within the pituitary gland. Along with other melanocortins, they are responsible for various internal human functions including skin and hair pigmentation, appetite, libido and physical sexual arousal.
In fitness and bodybuilding, Melanotan 2 is used to:
• increase libido and frequency of erections
• darker skin pigmentation,
• appetite suppression
• fat loss, lean body mass
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 2 vial should preferably be consumed entirely within 30 days. Prior to reconstitution, MT-II should be stored in the refrigerator.
