Epitalon is a synthetic tetra-peptide version of epithalamin (epithalon tetra), which is naturally produced by the pineal gland in the brain. The epithalamin peptide has been shown to have a wide range of beneficial biological activities in animal and human studies. Long-term exposure to epithalamin was followed by an increase in the mean and maximum life spans of aging of rats, mice, and flies. In human cells, epitalon stimulates enzymatic activity of telomerase, and telomere elongation, which can be due to reactivation of the telomerase gene.
