Sexual dysfunction is more common than one might think. It affects about 31% of men and 43% of women in the United States and can be difficult to deal with. However, sexual dysfunction is easily treatable with medication. PT-141 (Bremelanotide) combats the symptoms of sexual dysfunction in men and women.

What are peptides?
Peptides are the building blocks of proteins. Composed of amino acids, they regulate a variety of biological functions and processes. Naturally occurring in the human body, peptides instruct cells and molecules on what functions to perform.
Over 7,000 known peptides exist within the human body. Though some may be similar, each facilitates a different response and action within the body. Some common functions of peptides include:
- providing pain relief
- aiding in soft tissue repair
- accelerating healing processes
- promoting weight loss and lean muscle gain
- reversing symptoms of sexual dysfunction
- improving hormone production and cognitive function
At Bion, we harness the unique properties of peptides to treat specific conditions. This treatment process is known as peptide therapy.
What is PT-141?
PT-141 is a synthetic peptide that treats sexual dysfunction. It works at the brain and increases sexual desire. It was developed from Melanotan II, a peptide for darkening skin pigmentation and inducing tanning. However, during the initial testing, patients noted a pleasant side effect – that it caused increased sexual arousal.
How does PT-141 work?
PT-141 works directly through the nervous system. It works to increase arousal, desire, and satisfaction with sex. PT-141 peptide gives you the desire and motivation along with the ability to increase blood flow to the penis or vagina and clitoris. It addresses those issues to help resolve sexual difficulties.
PT-141 increases sexual desire with the nervous system. It stimulates and activates the dopamine hormones that happen to play a major role in sexual motivation. Dopamine is a known compound in the body. It’s a neurotransmitter that stimulates performance. When you have low levels of dopamine, your libido is lowered.
What are the benefits of PT-141?
Benefits of PT-141 may include:
- Increases in libido level
- Elevated degrees of sexual gratification
- Enhanced vigor and sexual desire
- Strengthened penile erections
- Skin tanning
- Mood enhancement
Who is a good candidate for PT-141?
PT-141 is recommended for individuals experiencing low libido and problems with arousal that are not caused by a medical condition or problems within the relationship.
Low libido and diminished sex drive are typically associated with people over the age of 40. However, it can (and does) affect people of all ages. As we get older, testosterone and estrogen levels naturally drop. This affects the desire-arousal-sex matrix.
While human sexuality may still be something of a taboo topic that can be difficult to talk about, many performance and libido issues are associated with health issues and hormonal imbalances. Like any biological process, the human sex drive is subject to a number of chemical, environmental, and physiological factors that are often beyond an individual’s control.
What are the side effects of PT-141?
Side effects may include headaches, nausea, and flushing. It was pointed out that the headaches experienced from well-known ED medications like Cialis and Viagra were more intense and lasted far longer than those who experienced them with PT-141.
