It is a commercial, synthetic pure growth hormone secretagogue, as well as a synthetic activator of ghrelin. It is used by bodybuilders, weightlifters and other athletes to optimise their strength and performance, and help them reach their growth related body goals. It is not meant to be used as a substitute for anything; it is recommended that it is used alongside regular exercise and a healthy, balanced diet suitable to the training and the goals intended.
It is fairly similar to the previously released GHRP-6, but doesn’t come with the intense hunger pangs that GHRP-6 is known for. This has something to do with the production of the ghrelin hormone, i.e. the one that controls hunger, which is what makes it effective at what it does.
So apart from that one little number, what are the other main differences between GHRP6 and its new competitor in the market? Funnily enough, the ghrelin still plays a huge part in this growth hormone releasing peptide. And this is why. Although the little hormone is still present, chemists have been able to strip it back to reduce hunger pangs. Its main purpose is to increase the need for food, while also emptying the stomach at the same time. Don’t ask us how, just know that it’s possible and it worked very well.
How do you take it? Much like the other peptides in its family, it comes as a lyophilized powder. It is usually reconstituted with bacteriostatic water or sodium chloride before being ready to inject by the athlete. It must be stored in a cold place, so it is recommended that it remains in the fridge until it’s time to inject it. There is an estimated dose of 100mcg-300mcg per injection, and users will typically inject between two and three times in one day. A growth hormone releasing hormone, i.e. GHRH (also known as somatorelin in its pharmaceutical form in case you’re interested) should also ideally be used at the same time in order to help the pulse wave combination reach the pituitary pathway. This is essentially what releases the growth hormone and what makes it work in the best and most effective way possible.
Apart from the reasons that were covered above, there are many other benefits to using it. It contains many anti-aging properties, which can only be a good thing for athletes; the fact that it can increase lean body mass gains is also listed as a benefit for obvious reasons.
Another good thing about the new peptide is that the natural production of growth hormones isn’t going to be stopped – an unwanted side effect that was unfortunately found in HGH, otherwise known as Human Growth Hormone.Although there are still going to be some side effects which will inevitably vary from person to person, users will no doubt be pleased to know that their natural production of growth hormones won’t be affected.
The product therefore aims to tick all the boxes and fill some of the holes left by GHRP-6 and other peptides before it.
