But ever since the 1970’s, scientists have observed that although we produce substantial amounts of both IGF-1 and human growth hormone (HGH) in childhood, these hormones decrease drastically by the time we reach old age. They also noticed that IGF-1 could possibly be manipulated to extend life and to prolong the deteriorating effects of aging (you can read the research here).
Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-6 or GHRP-6 is basically a hgH secretagoue, which has the potential to facilitate the effective increase the levels of natural secretion of hgH in our body. At the same time, this compound can also facilitate a sudden increase in body mass and bring about a massive reduction in body fat. GHRP-6 also includes artificial d-amino acids which lead the body to release growth hormones as well. GHRP-6 is not known to work well with GHRH, so it works at the Ghrelin's receptor in place of that receptor.

The peptide therapy protocols (Amino Acid Analogs) prescribed by TeleWellnessMD providers are also known as secretagogues (pronounced se-creta-gog), a substance that promotes secretion. These amino acid chains communicate with the body to produce or release growth hormone. Hence a secretagogue causes the body’s own natural processes to produce growth hormone. Secretagogues do not act as growth hormones but rather stimulate the pituitary gland to secrete your stored growth hormone. The subcutaneous injection route of growth hormone stimulation is a preferred route to help slow down age and environmental reductions in growth hormone levels.


Male pattern baldness is genetically switched on at an age that varies very widely (some men in their twenties, some men never – look at the onset in males in your family). When the genetically inherited tendency turns on, then testosterone and it’s stronger (but less concentrated) metabolite, dihydrotestosterone, trigger the slow death of the hair follicles on the scalp in a male baldness pattern.
To receive further information and prices of Peptides You will need to complete a simple online medical questionnaire. This is a legal requirement due to the regulation of Peptides in Australia. We cannot legally advertise specific Peptides to the general public without first ascertaining you are over 18 years of age and have submitted the required medical records.
Results in Fig. 1.8 of normal young men (left panel) and women (right panel) demonstrate that iv bolus combined GHRP-2 and GHRH at the respective doses of 1 μg/kg GHRH and a subthreshold GH-releasing dose of 0.03 μg/kg GHRP-2 released GH synergistically (Bowers, 1998). From these studies, GHRP is envisioned to act on the hypothalamus to release an unknown factor (U factor) rather than endogenous GHRH which subsequently acts concomitantly with GHRH on the pituitary somatotroph to release GH synergistically. In this study, the important specific finding is that GHRP-2 augments GHRH release even when GHRH is present in excess amounts, and the concomitant GHRP-2 dose of 0.03 μg/kg is a subthreshold GH-releasing amount. Thus, GHRP + GHRH is not releasing GH in this study by augmenting endogenous GHRH release and, furthermore, GHRP+GHRH release in vitro is additive and not synergistic. In addition, from other high-dosage GHRP-2 data, that is, 10 μg/kg sc (not shown), we have postulated that at high doses GHRPs do act on the hypothalamus to release endogenous GHRH because high-dose GHRP-2 (10 μg/kg sc) releases the same large amount of GH released by combined GHRH + GHRP-2 at 1 + 1 μg/kg iv (Bowers, 1998a,b).
Results and expectations from an HGH secretagogue such as GHRP-6 should be all of the same effects that any other form of Human Growth Hormone would provide. This includes fat loss, muscle mass increases, strength gains, healing and repair of joints and connective tissue, and a plethora of other benefits and changes. An important note to make is that the effects from any HGH application, whether it be an endogenous release from a GHRH or synthetic HGH administration, will all occur rather steadily over a longer period of use. Dramatic results within weeks are never to be expected, but with proper nutrition and training, dramatic performance and physique changes should occur steadily over the course of several months of application. For more information on HGH specific results and expectations, please see the Human Growth Hormone profile.
I stopped the colostrum and my ” symptoms ” subsided, seems I have a moderately enlarged prostate which doesn’t run in my family on either side, my question is could the colostrum possibly cause the prostate to enlarge due to the igf-1 at a certain age,? due to a possible decline in testosterone, or could the benefits of colostrum outweigh the prostate issue?

The authorities have branded it as a banned substance in the competitive athletics and bodybuilding to prevent the unfair advantage users are likely to gain from this drug. But many athletes and bodybuilders continue to pursue the drug actively. Then there are those people who are ready to try just about anything to lose all of their extra weight. There is always heavy demand for fat cutters and the demand for GHRP-6 is no exception. A majority of the demand groups don't have prescriptions for this drug and are likely to procure this from the black market or the internet. This is where the authorities need to step in.
For example, if 100mcg more were to be administered after the first 100mcg (making the effective dose of 200mcg), then the second dose will achieve only 50% of what the first dose already did. A 100mcg more (making a total of 300mcg) will achieve only 25% more of the initial dose. This implies that, in order to increase the effect of the compound, only a little more of it can be successfully administered after the saturation dose.

The importance of limiting myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury has been appreciated since Braunwald23,24 proposed that the extent and severity of tissue damage were not predetermined at the onset of ischemia, but could be modified by therapeutic manipulations applied during ischemia. Few years ago, a National Institutes of Health (NIH) expert’s panel concluded that cardioprotection is at a crossroads since approaches to identify cardioprotective therapies have been disappointing during the past 30 years.25 This may be related to the fact that the multiple candidates assayed so far target one single pathogenic event of the multiple damage cascade involved in myocardial damage and failure.25
Increase in ghrelin – Ghrelin is a hormone that the stomach releases when it is empty. It also helps regulate appetite, promotes fat loss in muscle tissue, and helps in healing damaged tendons. There are studies which also point to a direct link between elevated levels of ghrelin and faster repair of tendons. GHRP-6 causes an increase of ghrelin in the body.
Peptide therapy, or the use of specific peptides in treatment, has gained great popularity in recent years. This is due largely to the fact that these peptides are highly specific (i.e., only do what you want them to do) while also being well-tolerated and safe. As of January 2015, there were over 60 US FDA-approved peptide medications, 140 peptide drugs being evaluated in clinical trials, and 500 in pre-clinical development.

IGF-1 (Insulin-like growth factor) and MGF (Mechano-growth factor) are the peptides that help with insulin-like growth of muscles. In the case of mechano growth factor, it helps stimulate the recovery of damaged muscle tissue and activate satellite cells to produce more muscle tissue. MGF should only be dosed post workout and even on recovery days to utilize the full muscle building effects.
Unlike GHRP 6, the Half Life of GHRP 2 is pretty short. In fact, GHRP 2’s peak can be seen occurring within fifteen minutes after it has been administered or at least one hour at the latest. Also unlike GHRP 6, GHRP 2 helps improve the levels of calcium in the body and this can in turn facilitate the secretion of other growth hormones. GHRP 2 is believed to be more potent in its operation as compared to other peptide forms, including GHRP 6. Therefore, it is not surprising to see this peptide commonly employed for treating catabolic deficiencies.

These compounds may be considered an improvement on GHRH in terms of ability to induce growth hormone secretion. GHRP, it is thought, causes secretion of greater amounts of GH in the body. Unlike in the case of GHRH, you do not need to aim at specific times to take advantage of pulse produced by your body. Growth hormone releasing peptides produce growth hormone burst practically any time you take them. They are also available in different types, including the following:
Healthy male Wistar rats (250–270 g) were purchased from the National Center for Animal Breeding (CENPALAB, Havana, Cuba). Animals were individually housed at the animals’ facility of the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology, Havana, Cuba, and maintained under controlled environmental conditions and light cycles (12/12 hrs). Rats were fed with standard laboratory rodent’s chow under no restriction. Following an acclimation week, the dorsum of the rats was conditioned to receive two controlled full-thickness wounds, under sodium pentobarbital (30 mg/kg) anesthesia. The cuts were generated with disposable 6 mm diameter punch biotomes (Acuderm, Ft. Lauderdale, USA). Two independent experiments were performed using the above described wound model. Thus, 10 rats ( wounds) were used for either GHRP-6 formulation or vehicle (1% CMC) groups in each experiment. Upon wounds induction the rats were randomly assigned to either group. The wounds were cleansed daily with saline, their contours traced on transparent plastic sheets and treated accordingly. Treatments were topically applied twice a day at the same hours during four days. Wounds closure dynamic was measured by planimetric analysis as described previously [16] using the ImageJ software, version 1.46r. Since the GHRP-6 intervention increased the rate of closure, the animals were terminated by anesthesia overdose on day five after wounding. Ulcers and a surrounding margin of intact skin (~5 mm) were collected and hemisectioned. One hemisection was preserved in RNA Later solution for further gene expression studies. The other hemisection was fixed in 10% buffered formalin, paraffin embedded, and 5-μm sectioned. The specimens were stained with hematoxylin/eosin (H/E) and Mallory trichrome to examine collagen deposit. Other slides were destined for immunohistochemistry (as described below).

Observation reveals that peptides have become more and more popular in recent years among bodybuilders and those coveting a great body. This trend, perhaps, is influenced by relative difficulty in getting and using anabolic steroids. But what are these substances and are they really legal alternatives to steroids? What benefits do bodybuilders hope to get from using them? We answer these questions and more, including peptide types, in this piece.
In June 2010, the National Drugs and Poisons Schedule Committee (NDPSC) considered the scheduling of paracetamol in combination with ibuprofen. Paracetamol preparations containing 500 mg or less of paracetamol as the only therapeutically active constituent (other than phenylephrine, effervescent agents or guaiphenesin) in packs of 25 or less were exempt from scheduling. However, when these preparations were combined with another therapeutically active ingredient they became Schedule 2. The NDPSC considered that the Schedule 2 entry remained appropriate, but noted the possibility that more robust evidence of additional risk could come to light through any application for product approval with the Therapeutic Goods Administration. The delegate confirmed the NDPSC's decision and the reasons for the decision in August 2010.

When dosing, an appropriate volume will be drawn from the vial with (typically) an insulin syringe, according to the desired dose and the concentration of the preparation. In the above example, a 100 mcg dose would require only 0.05 mL, or “5 IU” as marked on an insulin syringe. A 300 mcg would require 0.15 mL, or “15 IU” as marked on an insulin syringe.

It does not matter what your intended use it; whether it is for weight loss, muscle mass development, lean muscle mass, or simply to increase HGH to their natural levels, you should always maintain the same dosage levels throughout the entire cycle. Do not increase use if you believe you aren’t achieving the results you are hoping for, as this can result in negative side effects or lacklustre results.

Superior SARMS products are manufactured to be a safe and effective steroid and peptide alternative. Unlike androgenic drugs such as traditional anabolic steroids, Superior SARMS are  much more selective in their action as they directly target androgen receptors in muscle, bone, body fat and connective tissues in the body.  Our products increase the metabolic rate within the body without disturbing its natural hormones, which in turn greatly assist in achieving maximum results such as lean muscle gain and enhanced muscle recovery along with the added benefits of anti-aging effects, further with regenerating overall connective tissue and repair. All Superior SARMS products are also orally administered with no intravenous injections. It must be noted that Superior SARMS are for “Research Purposes Only”.


Our first human GHRP-6 studies in normal young men were performed in collaboration with Michael Thorner (Bowers et al., 1990). These studies (Fig. 1.7, left panel) revealed that iv bolus GHRP-6 released GH and, when given together with GHRH, released GH synergistically. One of the most characteristic and consistent in vivo actions of GHRPs in various animals as well as humans of both sexes and all ages is the synergistic release of GH when GHRP is administered concomitantly with GHRH by iv bolus. Subsequently, this was also found for continuous 24/7 subcutaneous (sc) infusion. Also recorded in Fig. 1.7, right panel, is the comparative GH-releasing effects of iv bolus GHRP-6, -1, -2, and GHRH in normal young men. The potency of the three GHRPs we developed over several years was increasingly effective in releasing GH, and each released more GH than GHRH in normal young men. In addition, this was also found to occur in normal young women (Bowers, 1996).
200 to 300 mcg is typically the daily dosage which is recommended for the typical Ipamorelin user. It can be taken anytime during the day but is advisable to be used in the morning, as it will help you achieve the best results in such cases. Regardless of when you start your dosage, it is important to ensure you are taking it at the same time each day. And, for new users, it is best to stick to a one-a-day cycle.
However, both the original GRF (1-29) and the Mod GRF 1-29 required frequent dosages. So a new compound called CJC-1295 was created which was far more stable. This compound was made by adding Lysine – which is a non-peptide, and is also called Drug Affinity Complex or DAC. Since the original Mod GRF 1-29 does not contain DAC, it is named as CJC-1295 without DAC. However, the actual CJC-1295 is not only difficult, but also very expensive to produce. This is why it is not produced or used extensively. The Mod GRF 1-29 is far easier and cheaper to produce.
This is the most popular variant of IGF-1 that buyers will find on the market today. IGF-1 LR3 comprises 83 amino acids. That means it adds extra 13 amino acids to the sequence of the standard insulin-like growth factor-1. The polypeptide boasts qualities that make it much more powerful than normal IGF-1. It boasts a longer half life of up to 30 hours, compared to the latter’s 15 hours. In addition to bodybuilding, IGF-1 LR3 helps with fat burning, quicker recovery and slowing aging.

Well, personally I used 150mcg injected directly into the joints or areas that I've had any niggling injuries, the localized effect it has on collagen growth is nothing short of astounding. After using GHRP-6, I have personally recovered from a full pectoral tendon tear, where the tendon ripped right of the humerus bone; in fact, it's now in better shape than it was prior to the injury. Interestingly, 5g of the GHRP-6 will last ages when used properly; even at this dose fat loss is noticeable and the anabolic effects of increased muscle size and strength can be seen.


This class of peptides is used to enhance the insulin-like growth of muscles by bodybuilders. These compounds are great for targeting specific muscle groups. Also known as Somatomedic C, IGF-1 has become one of the more popular peptides used for muscle building in the last 10 years or so. Englishman Dorian Yates, who was named Mr. Olympian for six straight years in the 1990s, is thought to have been a prominent user. This contributed to make many professional bodybuilders to include it in their regimen as well. IGF-1 is also available in different variants.
GHRP-6 while being the penultimate in strengths of GH release in its class, it is still quite potent and can be taken 2-3 times in a day. It is available in a freeze-dried powder and should be reconstituted in bacteriostatic water and stored in the refrigerator. It is available in 5 mg packets, and one dosage should not be more than 100 micrograms. A dosage of more than 200 micrograms does not any significant impact on the muscles. It should be injected using an insulin syringe either under the skin or between muscles.
Determining how efficient and the actions of the growth hormone is dependent on the physical condition of the experimental unit. For example, in humans, GH secretion decreases with obesity. On the other hand, GHRP-6, similar to Hexarelin, showed in one case increased (almost twice that of GHRP) GH responses when administered in obese patients (Cordido et al. 1993). Though obesity has shown affecting the efficiency of the hormone, it was also suggested that GHRP-6’s effects were found to be sex- and age-independent without being affected by the noadregenic pathways using the a2 adrenergic receptors (Penalva et al. 2008).
Three of the submissions did not support the proposal highlighting the impact the change in scheduling would have on product currently on the market, industry, pharmacists and consumers. Two submissions noted that there has not been a history of concern with this combination of substances. One submission, referring to the NEJM article, believed that a lack of information about the study means that it cannot be relied upon as there is not a meaningful assessment of the results.

As we mentioned above, the results you are going to realize are different for each user. An athlete might see immediate and greater gains, than a 50-year old male who has never stepped foot in a gym and is 30 pounds overweight. So, make sure you bear this in mind as you are determining whether or not Ipamorelin is right for you. Further, if incorporating other supplements like CJC 1295 or additional growth hormones, the results are also going to be greater than if you are simply using Ipamorelin on its own. Make sure you are aware of this, and how to properly incorporate it with other supplements, in order to ensure the best possible results with use.
Combined, the loss of muscle and bone mass, is a quick ticket to the grave. The lack of supporting muscle and bone tissue, means that falls are more likely to occur, lengthy hospital stays inevitable, and the immobility created from these sustained injuries, produce further reduction in muscle mass and bone mass. A vicious cycle, which can be stopped in its tracks through the use of peptides such as SARMs.

White male New Zealand rabbits (4.3–4.5 kg) were used in four independent and extemporaneous experiments. Three to four wounds were created on the ventral side of each ear, down to the surface of the cartilage, using a 6 mm diameter punch biotome (Acuderm) as described [20]. For the surgical procedures, rabbits were anesthetized with intramuscular ketamine (60 mg/kg) and xylazine (5 mg/kg). In order to ensure an exuberant scarring, the perichondrium was carefully scrapped with the surgical blade. The wounds were made on each side of the midline, avoiding the central ear artery and the marginal ear veins. In three experiments, rabbits were randomly assigned to either GHRP-6 (400 μg/mL) treatment or 1% CMC placebo gel. The jelly solutions were administered using 1 mL sterile disposable syringes; 250 μL was applied to each wound, which for the group of GHRP-6 represented an actual dose of 100 μg per wound. Treatments were initiated immediately after surgery and continued thereafter until day 30, when most of the wounds had already completed reepithelialization.
Steve Coggan, Chatswood, Sydney, “I am 48 and been weightlifting for 20 years. I have used CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin on their own and together, and have to say that when combining them they work better and faster. I have been using them for the past year, with 2 rest times. The combination of CJC 1295 Ipamorelin, is proving fantastic all round. Not only am I increasing muscle, my weight is down, but my skin is looking great. Some of the bags under my eyes have more or less gone. My missus thinks I look 10 years younger! Also, it has helped in the recovery of an injury to my knee after a fall. I have to say it isn’t cheap, but the results are worth it. CJC 1295 Ipamorelin side effects were few, just some headaches at first. You need to use it with a good diet and fitness regime for best results. I will definitely be continuing with it!”
Specifically, T α 1 has been shown to enhance the function of certain immune cells called T and dendritic cells. This is very important to anyone with a depressed immune system or suffering from an infection, as these white blood cells play pivotal roles in the body’s defense process. T cells, for example, come in two forms: killer and helper T cells. Killer T cells are responsible for hunting down and destroying our body’s own cells that are cancerous or infected with bacteria or viruses. Helper cells work with the other cells of the immune system to orchestrate and carry out appropriate immune responses.
Studies have shown that individuals fighting infection have a lower amount of circulating T α 1 and suppressed helper T cell numbers compared to healthy individuals. This is problematic, as optimal immune function is vital to recovery from infection. Supplementation with T α 1 has the potential for great therapeutic benefit for patients suffering from infection or autoimmune disease.
In rat stomach, a second type of ghrelin peptide has been purified and identified as des-Gln14-ghrelin (). Except for the deletion of Gln14, des-Gln14-ghrelin is identical to ghrelin, even retaining the n-octanoic acid modification. Des-Gln14-ghrelin has the same potency of activities with that of ghrelin. The deletion of Gln14 in des-Gln14-ghrelin arises due to the usage of a CAG codon to encode Gin, which results in its recognition as a splicing signal. Thus, two types of active ghrelin peptide are produced in rat stomach: ghrelin and des-Gln14-ghrelin. However, des-Gln14-ghrelin is only present in low amounts in the stomach, indicating that ghrelin is the major active form. In addition, n-decenoyl (C10:l)-modified ghrelin exists in the stomach in small amounts.
Determining how efficient and the actions of the growth hormone is dependent on the physical condition of the experimental unit. For example, in humans, GH secretion decreases with obesity. On the other hand, GHRP-6, similar to Hexarelin, showed in one case increased (almost twice that of GHRP) GH responses when administered in obese patients (Cordido et al. 1993).

The goal of this review is to offer a summary of the most relevant achievements of the pharmacological knowledge with synthetic GHRP (GHRP-6, GHRP-2, and hexarelin) in a historical perspective line. General cyto- and cardioprotection fields are specially focused, since all these agents have contributed to the discovery of novel functions and mechanisms involved in cellular survival, senescence, and death. We deem that cardiologists, clinicians, and basic and clinical pharmacologists would receive some benefit from this text, in correspondence to the futuristic pharmacological opportunities offered by these agents. To date, cytoprotection remains as an orphan niche in contemporary medical armamentarium.
