Proper storage is crucial to keep this peptide in working order from the time it’s made until you use it. Temperature is the biggest factor in maintaining its stability and strength.

In powder form, it’ll keep well for around 2 years when frozen at that super cold -4 to -22°F temperature. Freezing prevents the breakdown that happens over time in solution. But once mixed with bacteriostatic water, it needs refrigeration to stay active.

After mixing, keeping it chilled between 35-46°F in the fridge slows the chemical reactions that start degrading and inactivating the peptide. Refrigeration maintains the 3D shape and bonds that are vital for this peptide’s regeneration effects. Too much heat ruins the structure and severs the amino acid chains.

And remember to always avoid sunlight when handling your BPC 157! UV rays will destroy the integrity of your peptides.

Keeping Your BPC 157 Peptide in Tip-Top Shape

Over time, even refrigerated vials start losing potency, which you’ll notice as a faint yellowish tint. Stay away from yellow – it means the peptide is on its way out. Keep an eye on clarity.

After first use, toss opened vials after a week unless they test negative for bacteria. Even with preservatives, contamination risk and weakening increase when you keep piercing the top.

For injections, brief exposures to higher temps like at the doctor’s office are no biggie. But for storing this peptide, refrigeration is a must once it’s in liquid form.

So in a nutshell, keeping it chilled between 36-46°F gives you the optimal activity and shelf life. And be picky – dump degraded or sketchy looking vials. Take care of your peptide, and it will take care of you!
