What is Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP)?
Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is a 28-amino acid peptide that has roles as a hormone and neurotransmitter and has diverse biological activities, including roles in vasodilation, inflammation, and metabolism, as well as regulation of the circadian rhythm.
Vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) is a polypeptide hormone that regulates several important bodily functions, including gut health, circadian rhythms, and stomach acid secretion. VIP promotes the growth and differentiation of intestinal epithelial cells, which helps to maintain a healthy intestinal wall. VIP is also antimicrobial against certain harmful bacteria while promoting the growth of beneficial gut bacteria. In addition, VIP regulates water and ion absorption in the large intestine, which is essential for proper gut function. VIP is an important peptide hormone with many beneficial effects on the body.
VIP decreases inflammation by blocking pro-inflammatory cytokines while increasing the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines – otherwise known as immune modulation. By boosting immune health, VIP also positively influences the communication channels between the immune system. Additionally, VIP has been shown to help control joint inflammation and can inhibit the destruction of cartilage and bone in arthritis sufferers. Finally, VIP functions as a macrophage deactivating factor, which means it stops the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-1, IL-6, IL-12) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) while stimulating the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-4, IL-10, IL-13 and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). Consequently, VIP can help regulate circadian rhythm.

For Research Only. Not Intended for Diagnostic or Therapeutic Use
Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide (VIP) is a powerful anti-inflammatory and immune-modulatory peptide that has the potential to treat a wide range of inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. VIP works by helping to modulate communication in the immune system, making it an important part of gut and immune health. Increasing VIP levels has been shown to help reverse some of the effects of autoimmune and degenerative disorders, making it a vital tool in the fight against these conditions.
