IGF-1 also increases the activity of muscle protein synthesis and the activity of muscle stem cells (also called satellite cells) for repair of damaged muscle. This is probably why intense weight training is one primary stimulus for a natural release of IGF-1 in muscle. As a matter of fact, exercise researchers have found that systemic IGF-1 normally produced in the liver isn’t even required for this type of muscle repair, as other IGF-1 forms produced by your own muscles during and post-exercise allows for adequate muscle tissue repair.

GHRP-6 side effects that are the result of the HGH increases include: flu-like symptoms, joint pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, and bloating and water retention. Less likely side effects include: dizziness, tingling or numbness on the skin, reduction of touch sensitivity, nausea, sore bones, and gynecomastia. Although HGH is not a sex hormone, it does serve as an important mediator hormone that works with Estrogen in the development of gynecomastia[1]. This should be kept in mind when utilizing GHRP-6 (or any HGH related compound) with aromatizable anabolic steroids.
The topic of Growth hormone (GH) can leave you wondering: is it a good, or a really bad thing? Look into the cold science of it and you’re left with a sweet and sour aftertaste of indecision from weighing up the risk-reward ratios with each cyberspace headline swaying the balance of power like a tabloid romance. Why the fascination? Well, over the years growth hormone (GH) has garnered celebrity status, not just in the world of exercise, but on the crimson rug too, since becoming a must-have for Hollywood A-listers who need to look their best. Taking it regularly gives you a more youthful appearance, serves up more energy, burns fat and improves muscle tone. The $10,000+ per year price tag does nothing to harm its appeal with the elite either. However, a more affordable and potentially no-less effective substitute, in the form of growth hormone releasing peptide-6 (GHRP6), is offering the injectable fountain of youth option to the man on the street. Seeing the word peptide in its name, means its made up of 28 tiny amino acids – the building blocks of a complete protein – that acts like a self-inflicted punch to the kidneys to your natural supplies of this powerful health elixir. Yes, it does reside in a legal grey area, and we certainly don’t condone its use or suggest you use it. Instead, this article is about giving you scientifically sound information on the latest developments in supplements. So, caveats aside, keep reading to learn about this provocative supplement.

As a result, a general guideline for the purpose of achieving performance and physique enhancement is that of 100mcg administered three times per day. Each injection should be spaced evenly apart in order to achieve substantial HGH levels throughout the day due to the short half-life of GHRP-6 as well as the pulsatile manner of the HGH release that it causes. For greater results that would include more pronounced muscle gain and fat loss, more frequent injections would be required above the three times per day protocol. More details concerning the specific administration timing will be described shortly.


Despite the controversies, some scientists continued with additional studies and again proved IGF-1 to actually prolong life…at least in worms.  Then, in 2001, scientists discovered that the use of IGF-1 resulted in a proliferation of cancer cells, especially throughout the breast and colon, and a 2012 study found that both too much or too little IGF-1 could contribute to dying from cancer; implying that IGF-1 actually helped patients with terminal cancer live longer.
[D-Lys3]-GHRP6 (growth hormone releasing peptide 6) induces the secretion of growth hormone (GH). In the membrane of clonal GC somatotropes, this peptide elevates the number of functional voltage-gated Ca2+ and Na+ channels. Chronic treatment with this peptide causes an elevation in Na+ macroscopic current in bovine pituitary somatotropes in culture, which results in an increase in the release of GH.
Cancer can often be a process of uncontrolled cellular division. IGF-1 is not only pro-growth in a way that could increase this cellular division, but IGF-1 also inhibits apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Hence the theory among some in the medical community that tumors could increase synthesis of IGF-1 to keep themselves alive and to encourage the spread of cancer throughout the body. This doesn’t mean that IGF-1 directly causes cancer.
IGF-1 causes hyperplasia and muscle and strength increase, looove IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor). GHRP-6 causes your pituitary gland the secret growth hormones so you get a 'pulse' after each shot. The more shots, the more pulses you get which is why I split it up to 3 times a day. You feel amazing post-shot and also hungry as fuuu within 20 minutes, like a bottomless stomach. Also helps with fat-loss.
GHRP-6 is normally always manufactured as lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder contained in vials in amounts of 5mg. Some companies might manufacture amounts greater or lesser than 5mg per vial, but the standard is generally 5mg/vial. The lyophilized powder contained within the vial will need to be reconstituted with bacteriostatic water in order for it to be injected. After reconstitution, the solution must then be refrigerated in storage. If left in hot environments or in room temperature environments for extended periods of time, the protein structure will degrade and become ineffective. For reconstitution, users will typically mix 3ml of bacteriostatic water with the powder gently. However, users can and do frequently reconstitute the powder with less (or more) water which will yield different concentrations of GHRP-6. For example, reconstitution of 5mg of powder with 3ml of water will yield GHRP-6 doses of 166mcg per 0.1ml (or 10iu on an insulin syringe).

As both CJC1295 and Ipamorelin bind to the pituitary gland and prompt the release of GH, when used together, the production of growth hormone is over 10 times more than when used individually. As it stimulates the body’s natural growth hormone production it also causes the release of IGF-1. The advantages of the CJC peptide is that it helps increases bone density and collagen, as well as boosting the immune system. It will also produce new muscle cells which will be leaner and increases weight loss. The CJC 1295 results are part of years of scientific studies. It primarily increases the production of proteins, which leads to stable bodily functions related to the glands in the body or the endocrine system.


The mechanisms supporting the GHRP-6-mediated HTS prevention may be related to a potential modulation of the fibrogenic response, especially by TGF-β1 transcriptional deactivation and its downstream effector CTGF, as has been previously described [30]. Nevertheless, we have not elucidated the pathways involved in the GHRP-6-mediated TGFB1 gene expression reduction. Under these circumstances, we have reproducibly observed [7] that GHRP-6 increases PPARG expression which may have counteracted TGF-β1-associated fibrogenic input. The fact that CD36 occupation by GHRP-6 upregulates PPARG gene expression is noteworthy in this context and represents an additional pharmacologic property for this peptide. Although the molecular pathways underlying the antifibrotic effects of PPARγ remain elusive, an antagonistic relationship is proposed between PPARγ and TGF-β1 signaling in fibrosis. For more than a decade ago, PPARγ has been reputed as a fibrosis-response regulating factor and its activation represents an innovative pathway to control fibrotic diseases [31, 32].
Immunohistochemical determination of CD31 expression (platelet endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1, PECAM-1) was conducted as this is a marker protein of mature vascular endothelium [19]. Sections (5 μm) were mounted on chromalum-coated slides, dewaxed, rehydrated, rinsed, and washed in PBS 1x solution for 30 min. Once endogenous peroxidase was quenched, the specimens were treated with target retrieval solution (Dako) equilibrated at 99°C. Tissue samples were then incubated for 40 min with 1/50 dilution of anti-CD31 antibody (Abcam 28364, USA) in background reducing solution (Dako). The immunohistochemical reactions were carried out using the labelled streptavidin/biotin-horseradish peroxidase conjugate method, according to the manufacturer’s instructions (Dako). The peroxidase reaction was developed with diaminobenzidine and counterstained with hematoxylin.
I started taking Ipamorelin and CJC 1295 without DAC yesterday. I dont see many logs and i see a lot of people wondering what kind of results you can get wiith these peptides. I have enough to go a couple of months right now and see what this stuff is really about. Im taking each 3x a day. Morning, pwo, and before bed. Im taking 100mcgs of each in the morning and before bed. After my workout, I'll take 100mcgs of cjc and 100-200mcgs of Ipa.
I have been using sermorelin (bioidentical growth hormone releasing hormone) for 2 months now to help heal a nasty right quad tendon rupture suffered the end of December. I’m 52 years old with 7% bodyfat and am a lifetime strength trainer and former high level bike racer. 2 months ago, in spite of months of religious rehab, I couldn’t do a single right leg bench stepup. Yesterday I was doing 20lb DB’s for repeated sets of 15. I get complete blood panels every 6 months, and my last labs in May showed my IGF-1 levels off the reference range low. I get my next bloods in a couple of weeks. I was initially afraid to try this hormone due to the cancer implications, and I didn’t need it to be lean and fit, but I was desperate and for my injury recovery, and it has made a significant difference. Plus, I believed supplementing the releasing hormone vs, IGF-1 limits the possibility of increasing the levels too much, as well as causing a negative feedback loop. By the way, I also tried TB-500 previous to the sermorelin, and it seemed to make some other achy joints in the gym go away, but didn’t seem to help the quad injury.
Used for muscle building, weight loss and anti-aging purposes, this is a very powerful peptide for promoting growth hormone release. GHRP-6 also helps in fighting inflammation and boosting recovery. Some professional bodybuilders are believed to use it together with steroids for greater potency. The peptide not only stimulates the pituitary to produce growth hormone, but also suppresses somatostatin which could impede release.
At the histological analysis, and from a qualitative perspective, these wounds appeared less inflamed and with a higher degree of ECM organization, given by far less fibrin accumulation and thinner and horizontally distributed collagen bundles. Vessels were also aligned with the collagen fibers. Thus, the treatment not only reduced the wound area but also appeared to be associated with differences in the quality of the ECM as the inflammatory infiltrate. Figure 2(a) is representative of the GHRP-6 effect on the inflammatory response, illustrating the reduction of infiltrated cells as compared to placebo-treated wounds (Figure 2(b)).
There is no “one right way”, to use Ipamorelin. For example, if you are using 500 to 1000 mcg doses daily, twice a day, your cycle might run for an 8 week period. If on the other hand, you are an athlete training for a competition, you might be on 3 injections per day, at 300-500 mcg, and will stay on for a 12 week period. For new users, you might find a 300 mcg injection is too high, and you will cut back to 200 mcg until your body gets used to it, for an 8-week cycle.
[2] Blocked growth hormone-releasing peptide (GHRP-6)-induced GH secretion and absence of the synergic action of GHRP-6 plus GH-releasing hormone in patients with hypothalamopituitary disconnection: evidence that GHRP-6 main action is exerted at the hypothalamic level. V Popovic, S Damjanovic, D Micic, M Djurovic, C Dieguez, and F F Casanueva. JCEM 1995 80: 942-7; doi:10.1210/jc.80.3.942.
The response of these wounds reminds us of the pattern of healing described for MG53 protein (a membrane repair machinery member), so that the treatment facilitated wound healing along with a reduced scarring in rodent models. This antiscar effect was explained by interfering with TGF-β-dependent activation of myofibroblasts differentiation and reduction of ECM proteins accumulation [22]. Similarly, antiscarring healing properties are described for plants’ principles that downregulate the expression of fibrogenic-related molecules such as TGF-β1 and the downstream events, leading to fibrosis and scar formation [23]. In addition to a direct action of GHRP-6 on TGFB1 gene expression, we deem that the reduction of inflammatory effectors could have also contributed to enhancing the healing process and to reducing fibrosis. In an animal model of liver ischemia/reperfusion, we previously demonstrated that GHRP-6 prevented internal organs parenchymal activation and the onset of a systemic inflammatory response syndrome by downregulating proinflammatory cytokines [24]. Subsequent studies have demonstrated the ability of different GHRPs to ameliorate local and systemic inflammatory processes in a variety of experimental scenarios by suppressing the activation of NF-κB, the consequent expression of proinflammatory cytokines, and acting as chemokine receptor antagonist [25–27]. Differentiation to myofibroblasts, collagen fibrillogenesis, and matrix accumulation are controlled by opposing forces: proinflammatory and profibrogenic, that require a fine tuning to ensure a proper esthetic healing and effective mechanical properties of the ECM [28, 29]. The overall interpretation of the data from (i) the rate of closure, (ii) microscopic appearance of the collagen fibrils alignment/organization, (iii) impact of the treatment on the transcriptional expression of cytoskeleton filamentous proteins (smooth muscle α-actin (α-SMA), desmin, and vimentin) supports the hypothesis that, in this context, GHRP-6 has shifted the balance toward “a more regenerative” rather than a reparative phenotype.
IGF-1 also increases the activity of muscle protein synthesis and the activity of muscle stem cells (also called satellite cells) for repair of damaged muscle. This is probably why intense weight training is one primary stimulus for a natural release of IGF-1 in muscle. As a matter of fact, exercise researchers have found that systemic IGF-1 normally produced in the liver isn’t even required for this type of muscle repair, as other IGF-1 forms produced by your own muscles during and post-exercise allows for adequate muscle tissue repair.

It is also important to note that whether you are a long-time user or a first-time user of Ipamorelin, your body is going to react differently to that of the next user. Like the benefits you will experience, the side effects you are going to experience will occur differently, and at different dosage levels. So, it truly is a trial and error period you are going to go through with a test run of Ipamorelin for new users. You have to find what works for you, how your body will react, and what potential side effects are lingering ahead, in order for you to achieve the greatest results, and eventually find the proper dosage and cycle level, which is going to work the best for your body and system.


But gene-therapy experiments have also resulted in patient deaths. The use of such therapies can cause the human body to experience fatal immune reactions to the vectors used to place the gene in the body. Another danger of gene therapy is an inability to control the expression of the gene, which could translate into a rapidly spreading cancer. Or the expression of the gene could spread from skeletal muscle into heart muscle, resulting in excessive heart muscle growth (known as left ventricular hypertrophy, or “athlete’s heart) that can cause premature heart failure.
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).
Light-headedness and dizziness: GHRP-6 might commonly cause what is commonly referred to as a “head rush” feeling accompanied by a tingling and “pins and needles” feeling in the extremities, as reported by many users. This can also present itself as a spell of dizziness and/or light-headedness. It is in fact a strong indication that the hormone is indeed stimulating the pituitary gland, and is a side effect indicative of almost all HGH secretagogues.
In 1982, the natural hormone "Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone" (GHRH) was identified after a prolonged search. Soon, researchers discovered that those GH-Releasing Peptides (specifically GHRP-6 & GHRP-2) followed a mode of action which bound them to and was mediated through receptors different from those for GHRH. Furthermore, researches discovered that these GH-Releasing Peptides acted synergistically with the natural hormone Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH), which is related to Sermorelin, in both laboratory animals and humans to produce large releases of Growth Hormone. In the 1980s, the first highly potent GH-Releasing peptide, GHRP-6, was developed. Due to a strong GH release response from the the peptide, it became the first member of a class called Growth Hormone secretagogues. GHRP-6 is a hexapeptide composed of 6 amino acids: L-Histidine, D-Tryptophan, L-Alanine, L-Tryptophan, D-Phenylalanine and L-Lysine. The "L" form of an amino acid is the naturally occurring form and often in the nomenclature the "L" is dropped. The "D" form does not occur in nature and is the isomeric form (i.e. mirror image) of the naturally occurring "L" form. GHRP-6 (His-D-Trp-Ala-Trp-D-Phe-Lys-NH2) is composed of both natural and isomeric forms of those 6 amino acids.This sequence provides a signal to the body to begin secreting Growth Hormone release while also blocking Somatostatin, a hormone that inhibits the release of Growth Hormone.

As both CJC1295 and Ipamorelin bind to the pituitary gland and prompt the release of GH, when used together, the production of growth hormone is over 10 times more than when used individually. As it stimulates the body’s natural growth hormone production it also causes the release of IGF-1. The advantages of the CJC peptide is that it helps increases bone density and collagen, as well as boosting the immune system. It will also produce new muscle cells which will be leaner and increases weight loss. The CJC 1295 results are part of years of scientific studies. It primarily increases the production of proteins, which leads to stable bodily functions related to the glands in the body or the endocrine system.
The wounds were monitored and followed from day 14 until day 30 after wounding so as to detect the nodular firm consistency that precedes the clinical exuberance. The animals remained in observation for another 20 days after GHRP-6 administration had been completed. The incidence of firm, protruded nodules with nipple-like appearance arising in resurfaced wounds was registered weekly until day 50. After euthanasia (anesthesia overdose), the samples were collected in block, longitudinally bisected along the largest point of nodular growth. One hemisection was nitrogen frozen for additional studies and the other one was fixed in 10% neutral buffered formaldehyde and processed for histology. Five-micrometer sections were stained with H/E staining. Scar overgrowth was measured using the previously described scar elevation index (SEI) based on the cross-sectional scar area to the area of tissue excised to induce the wound [21]. Blinded researchers measured the sections using the ImageJ software package, version 1.46r.
Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide 6 ( GHRP-6) is a peptide which substantially activates the pituitary gland into releasing high levels of growth hormone for a few hours. The increase in growth hormone comes from your own body, not synthetic growth hormones which can suppress your natural production. GHRP 6 is a first generation GHRP and has a few side effects which could be annoying.

No growth hormone, or any supplement for that matter, is never going to equate to the same exact results for every user. So, what you experience, is not the same as the next user, and vice-versa. Further, the increase in results and how quickly you will see these results are going to differ for each user. So, make sure you understand this prior to start your dosage, to ensure you are not disappointed if you do not see each one of these benefits, on the very first day that you begin using the Ipamorelin. Also consider the fact that if you use it after food, or with a meal, results will improve. So, proper timing and proper diet and exercise regimen can greatly enhance the results you are going to realize when you are using Ipamorelin as well.
For example, studies have shown that people deficient in IGF-1 have an increased chance of dying from a heart attack. This is because IGF-1 prevents the death of heart cells and offers protection to heart cells when the cells are stressed, such as during a heart attack or long amount of time without oxygen. IGF-1 has a similar protective effect on brain cells.
Our hormone levels decline as we age, and therefore the effects of these hormones decline proportionally. Even if you exercise and eat well, you will still experience this decline in hormone production and all of the associated adverse health effects that this brings. To fight ageing, and increase vitality, we can restore our hormones to their youthful levels.
The increase in GH secretion due to IPAMORELIN (and other GHRP) leads to an increase in IGF-1 (thought to be the anabolic mechanism of GH).  As we get older GH and subsequently IGF-1 decrease substantially.  This decline is thought to be one of the major causes of the ageing process.  By increasing these levels again there is increased collagen synthesis, promotion of lean muscle mass, bone strength, improved healing capability, improved sleep cycle, increased energy, repair and regeneration of internal organs, strengthening of joints/cartilage/connective tissue, and anti ageing effects on the skin. 
The sports pros and scientists have known about significance of peptides for bodybuilding and performance enhancement for many years but it is just in the last 2-3 years that the researchers have been able to know the dipeptides and tripeptides in the hydrolysed whey proteins that offer positive results on sports recovery and bodybuilding performance. So, if you really wish like achieving the desired bodybuilding goals, you can take natural peptide supplements.

Another major difference between GHRP 2 and GHRP 6 is that the former is a bit stronger and releases a lot more Growth Hormone as compared to GHRP 6. Therefore, if increasing Growth Hormone in you is of prime importance then consider choosing GHRP 2 makes a lot of sense. But the importance of the latter in stimulating appetite cannot be ignored altogether. Though GHRP 2 can also be used for the same purpose, it is certainly not in the same level as that of GHRP 6.
