Intestinal and Stomach Healing
GHK-Cu has potent effects on the healing of stomach ulcers and intestinal inflammations. One small human study found a very positive effect of GHK-Cu on the healing of intestinal lesions in persons with refractory inflammatory bowel disease.
Effects of GHK-Cu on gastric acidity,
mucous production and the development of ulcers
(Shay gastric ulcer model (95% ethanol) in rats).

Likewise, GHK-Cu produced a similar blockage of rat duodenal ulcer formation (cystamine induced).
GHK-Cu was tested for healing of experimental stomach ulcers and intestinal damage in rats.

16 patients with refractory inflammatory bowel disease were treated with rectally administered solutions of GHK-Cu.
After the 12 weeks treatment, there was a 60% reduction in severity bas measured by endoscopy, histopathology, and symptoms
