MT2, also known as Melanotan 2, is a synthetic peptide that is primarily used for its effects on skin pigmentation. It is derived from the hormone alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) and works by stimulating the production of melanin in the body. Melanin is responsible for the pigmentation of the skin, hair, and eyes.

- Increased vascularity: Some individuals believe that MT2 may promote increased vascularity, leading to enhanced blood flow to the muscles. Improved blood circulation can potentially support nutrient delivery and waste removal, which are important factors for muscle growth and recovery.
- Potential appetite suppression: It has been suggested anecdotally that MT2 may have appetite-suppressing effects, which could help individuals with their dietary goals for muscle gain. By reducing hunger and food cravings, it may be easier to adhere to a calorie-controlled diet that supports muscle growth.
- Enhanced fat loss: While MT2 is primarily known for its effects on skin pigmentation, some individuals believe it may have a secondary effect of promoting fat loss. By stimulating melanocortin receptors, MT2 may potentially increase metabolic rate and lipolysis (the breakdown of stored fat) in the body.
- Potential performance enhancement: It has been speculated that MT2 may indirectly contribute to muscle gain by potentially improving overall performance. This could be through effects such as increased endurance, improved recovery, or enhanced motivation during workouts.
