β-endorphin is a peptide, 31 amino acids long, resulting from processing of the precursor proopiomelanocortin (POMC), which was found in neurons of the hypothalamus, as well as the pituitary gland. It is an agonist of the opioid receptors, with evidence suggesting it serves as the endogenous ligand of the μ-opioid receptor, the same receptor to which the chemicals extracted from opium, such as morphine and codeine, have their analgesic and addictive effects (indeed, the μ-opioid receptor was named based on its most renowned ligand, morphine). It is used as an analgesic in the body to numb or dull pains.β-endorphin is believed to have a number of other benefits, including: Boosting the immune system, slowing the growth of cancer cells, promoting feeling of well-being and increasing relaxation.
