DSIP (Delta Sleep-inducing Peptide) is a neuropeptide found in the hypothalamus, pituitary, and adrenal glands.
Its isolation has allowed for extensive research which has found several possible primary and peripheral roles of this peptide.
First, DSIP has been shown to induce sleep.
Second, it may have benefits as an analgesic in treatment of chronic pain, sometimes as an adjunct treatment.
Third, DSIP has been shown to block ACTH release and decrease levels of ACTH, stimulate LH release, and act as an inhibitor of the secretion of somatostatin.
It has been shown to help treat narcolepsy and restore disturbed sleep patterns to normal sleep rhythms.
