Epitalon (Epithalamin) is a peptide studied and utilized for its anti-aging effects. It has been shown to be a potent anti-oxidant, comparable to melatonin, and may confer longevity benefits.
Epitalon is a synthetic peptide that is based on a natural peptide called Epithalamin, which is extracted from the pineal gland. It was synthesized by Vladimir Khavinson, a Russian professor and gerontologist, whose research focused on the development of peptide preparations used to restore function in various organs in order to prevent and reverse the aging process. He is currently the Director of the Saint Petersburg Institute of Bioregulation and Gerontology.
