Re: Copper Misconceptions

Jessica ·
Dear Beth, Many of our clients have emailed us with concerns about the safety of copper. Excessive copper has been blamed for many diseases – Alzheimer's, heart disease, cancer, etc. The problem is that most of this comes from data on blood plasma copper and diseases. But usually, high blood plasma copper is associated with low tissue copper. Most plasma copper (60%) is locked in proteins such as in ceruloplasmin - an acute phase reactant that rises with stress and disease, and other...

We are not allowed to give medical advice. GHK seems to have both anti-cancer properties and skin regenerative properties. Retinoic acid also has both anti-cancer and tissue regenerative properties.

Retinoic acid is a drug and cannot be used in cosmetics. We have scar reduction methods at scar-reduction.com but your physician must approve of what you do because of the cancer. Below is one idea - retinoic acid and glycolic acid. Indian Dermatol Online J. 2015 Mar-Apr;6(2):84-8. doi: 10.4103/2229-5178.153007.

Re: Basal Cell Cancer on Nose

Dr. Loren Pickart ·
I think it would be safe but I am not a physician. I recommended retinoic acid because it is widely used in cancer therapy and also remodels skin. Go to "Pubmed" and do a search on "retinoic acid cancer" and youbwill see what I mean. GHK may be used in cancer treatments in the future, but for now still in the basic research area.

Hi Pinkdervish, I always get reactive bumps under my skin after I have derma rolled my neck area, and there's heaps of them every where that I have rolled. I know its an immune reaction to the injuring from the roller; which is a normal body function, they will last about 2 days and nearly all gone by the 3rd day.

Hi Polly! Thanks so much for your reply. Without photographic and written documentation of what I use and what my skin appears like after derma needling, I often lose sight of my progress. Its helpful to know that I'm not the only one that experiences the bumps after derma rolling. I never knew it was an immune reaction. At one point, I actually thought that they may be cold sores, considering how close the scarred tissue I roll the most (deepest scar I have) is near my nasalobial fold...

Re: Copper Deficiency

Actually Dr. Pickart has stated before: "Don't take copper sulfate - It will damage your GI tract. Stick to the amino acid-copper chelate ...5mg daily which should be OK...Amino acid chelates are much less irritating or can have anti-inflammatory actions." Best Wishes!

GHK-Cu In relation to Wound Healing

skinbiologywebmaster ·
Dr. Pickart had me post this for your reading enjoyment. In 1984, I observed that GHK-Cu possesses a mild antioxidant activity similar to the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which manifests itself as a calming of red and irritated skin. Steve Aust’s lab at Utah State University discovered that GHK-Cu blocks the damage-induced release of oxidizing iron molecules from ferritin. Further discoveries followed. Vinci et al. at the University of Catalina in Italy reported that GHK-Cu blocks tissue...

GHK & Wound Healing: Built-In Natural Regulator of Dermal Repair The wound healing process in the skin goes through the following phases: hemostasis (blood clotting), inflammation, granulation, and scar remodeling.

For example, immediately after injury degranulating platelets release growth factors (such as TGF-beta)...

Dear Zaril: Thank you for posting your question - We were able to ask Dr. Pickart about stability issues if you try mixing GHK-Cu as mentioned. He says mixing with CoQ10 would not pose a problem. But regarding the other actives (Carnosine, ALA, and Boswellic acid) our best suggestion is to try it. Make a small amount and test on a small area first before general use.
