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.
Perhaps, the primary reason why peptides are used in bodybuilding has to do with how they improve growth hormone production. It is no longer a secret how HGH helps to improve lean muscle mass. Your body uses peptides to promote increased secretion of HGH. They, therefore, make it easier for interested persons to achieve bigger muscle mass. Their usage may help enhance strength. It is even said that these small amino acid chains could boost testosterone production.
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.
But for maintenance of adequate and natural IGF-1 and growth hormone, and to achieve that sweet spot of not becoming to pro-growth while also not becoming a weak, muscle-less noodle, that sweet spot of producing adequate insulin without producing too much, and that sweet spot of increasing cellular repair without letting cellular division get “out of control”, I have indeed been implementing three specific strategies: my IGF-1 “trilogy”.

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).

Whether it is GHRP 2 or GHRP 6, it is better to get in touch with your physician before you get on with the consumptions of these peptides. In any case, when you are following an exercise regimen of extreme type coupled with special supplements and diets, a complete assessment done by a competent physician is highly recommended. Both the peptides – GHRP 2 and GHRP 6 have their own set of advantages and disadvantages, similarities and differences. It all boils down to individual choices and requirements when it comes to choosing between them.
On the legality issue, peptides are always classed as ‘research chemicals’, not intended for human use. This is because anything that was intended for human use and especially compounds that are meant to be injected, would have to undergo intensive human research and testing, taking many years before approval. They are classed as research chemicals for use in lab experiments ONLY, which is why on the forums you will see guys talking about injecting their rat/rabbits/guinea pigs with peptides, etc., not specifically saying they are injecting themselves, as a get out clause if any legal repercussions came about.
As an athlete, you can also increase your dosage cycle for a period of 12 to 16 weeks at a time, to maximize your gains. Do so gradually if you opt to go this route. Make sure you increase your daily dosage (1 to 2 doses per day, etc.) gradually. Start off with lower dosage levels as well, and see how it interacts with your body. You don’t want to experience withdrawal, nor do you want to experience negative side effects when using Ipamorelin for longer dosage cycles. So, make sure you monitor your progress, see how you feel as you go, and make notes if/when you do experience negative side effects, so you can balance down to the proper dosage levels.
For example, there are Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides (GHRP’s with names such as ipamorelin and hexarein) which allow for a slow and steady growth hormone release that produces a pulse which mimics natural growth hormone release times and Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRH’s such as Mod-GRF) for an even stronger natural release of growth hormone and greater presence of growth hormone precursors known as GH “frags” or fragments.
Users get even greater growth hormone release from this peptide than both GHRP-6 and GHRP-2. Much like other GHRP and GHRH peptides, it is believed to be useful for muscle building, fat loss and anti-aging. Hexarelin is stronger than practically all other growth hormone releasing peptides at all dosing levels. But this means it has higher potential to desensitize, regardless of dose or whether breaks are observed.
For increasing GH levels, GHRP-6 is less effective in the presence of high blood glucose levels or high somatostatin levels, which result from high IGF-1 levels. For this reason, for best effect GHRP-6 should be taken while blood sugar is relatively low, for example about 30-60 minutes before a meal. GHRP-6 will have reduced effect if GH is being taken by injection, because GH increases IGF-1. Where GH use is limited to no more than about 14 IU per week, simultaneous GHRP-6 use probably still will increase GH somewhat further, but if GH use is greater than this then likely GHRP-6 injections will do little to nothing towards increasing GH levels any further.
In July 1972, the DPSSC decided to include vitamin D in Schedule 4 when the recommended daily dose exceeded 25 micrograms. This decision was based on the Canadian restrictions on vitamins A and D that drugs containing more than 10,000 international units of vitamin A in a recommended daily dose were prescription only and that the same restriction would apply to drugs containing more than 1,000 units of vitamin D in a recommended daily dose.
hi i have just bought the same as what you mentioned, can you give me a bit of info from your experience, like how quickly results will be seen? your experience on how much fat loss you achieved and any muscle you gained? i have a solid weight and food plan and im smashing out plenty of cardio too, and need to lose another 10 lb. all the best kayne
The evidence derived from these experiments supports the notion that CD36 is an active and approachable receptor to modulate the healing process. Here we have observed that CD36 occupation by GHRP-6 attenuates wound inflammation, accelerates wound closure, and above all improved wound’s esthetic outcome by impacting ECM proteins accumulation. To our knowledge these findings are unprecedented for GHRP-6 within the context of cutaneous healing.

In June 2003, the NDPSC decided to reschedule mometasone from Schedule 3 to Schedule 2 for the short-term prophylaxis or treatment of allergic rhinitis, with dose and age restrictions. The NDPSC considered that this rescheduling was appropriate given mometason's extensive local and overseas experience, demonstrated effectiveness in the treatment of allergic rhinitis and that allergic rhinitis is readily diagnosed and self-monitored by the consumer with pharmacist advice or counselling available if necessary. As there would no longer be a Schedule 3 entry, the NDPSC also decided to delete mometasone from Appendix H.
The scheduling of paracetamol and caffeine when combined in a compound analgesic as the only active ingredients was again reviewed by the NDPSC at its 57th Meeting in October 2009 after the Committee had received a request to reconsider the scheduling on the grounds of potential toxicity if used in excess. This issue had been extensively reviewed at the June 2007 meeting and it was decided that Schedule 2 remained appropriate.
In extracardiac models of striated muscles atrophy, GHRP-2 exerted a potent myoprotective effect, presumably via the direct agonistic stimulation of the GHS-R1a since no elevation of IGF-1 transcript was observed.49 Thus, it is likely that GHRP cardioprotective effects in scenarios of DCM may be somehow mediated by a trophic or anabolic mechanism. Based on the benefits of GHRP-6 on muscle functions, a newly synthesized GHRP-6-biotin conjugate tested on cultured myoblasts showed that it induced the expression of myogenic proteins and IGF-1 levels similar to the concentrations of energy metabolites and the corresponding enzymes. Practical applications of the GHRP-6-biotin conjugate could include amelioration of sarcopenia and/or cardiac cachexia.50
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.
In studies GHRP-6 has shown biological actions similar to the naturally occurring hunger stimulating peptide ghrelin. Its main use is to promote food intake by stimulating hunger and aid in energy metabolism. It can be used in the treatment of GH deficiency as well as cachexia, eating disorders and obesity. GHRP-6 is a synthetic met-enkephalin (a naturally occurring opioid growth factor) analog. GHRP-6 contains D-amino acids that are entirely synthetic, lacks opioid activity, and shares no sequence relation with GHRH. It has also been shown that GHRP-6 can lead to re-stimulation of the natural production of HGH.
Consistent with these data, our group observed a transient inotropic effect of about 15 minutes in both healthy and infarcted rabbits following a single GHRP-6 intravenous bolus (400 µg/kg). Echocardiography recordings indicated a 15%–20% elevation of the ejection fraction as an increase in shortening fraction (Juan Valiente Mustelier and Jorge Berlanga Acosta, unpublished observations, 2007). More recent studies based on isolated murine hearts that underwent periods of ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) confirm that pre- or posttreatments with hexarelin for instance prevented the intracellular disturbances in Ca+2 transients through recovery of p-PLB after the I/R insult.43 Other studies involving adult Wistar rat ventricular myocytes have confirmed the positive inotropic response induced by hexarelin and other secretagogue peptides that bind the GHS-R1a, which activates protein kinase C signaling cascade.44

Before the discovery of ghrelin, synthetic GH secretagogs were available. Several studies investigated the effects of these substances on human sleep. Oral administration of the GH secretagog MK-677 for 1 week prompts a distinct sleep-promoting effect in healthy young male volunteers, whereas a weak effect is observed in elderly subjects. This study shows that oral administration of a peptide is capable of promoting sleep. After repetitive intravenous administration of GH-releasing peptide 6 (GHRP-6), non-REM sleep stage 2 increases. Similar to the effects of ghrelin in male subjects GH, ACTH, and cortisol are elevated. In a set of studies, the intranasal, oral, and sublingual administration of GHRP-6 was tested. By these routes of administration the effects of the peptide on the sleep EEG and on hormone secretion are less distinct and partly different from those after intravenous injection. In contrast to the sleep-promoting effects of GHRP-6 and ghrelin, hexarelin prompts a decrease of SWS, whereas the pattern of endocrine effects after hexarelin resemble the endocrine changes after ghrelin and GHRP-6 in that there is a marked stimulation of GH. The decrease of SWS after hexarelin may be related to negative feedback inhibition of endogenous GHRH. After a single dose of GHRP-2 during the third period of REM sleep, sleep remains unchanged. The lack of effects in this study may be related to the method that uses only a single injection of the substance.
The potent biologic effects of GHRPs and the identification of the GHS-R suggested the existence of a natural ligand for the receptor that is involved in the physiologic regulation of GH secretion. The acylated peptide ghrelin, produced and secreted into the circulation from the stomach, is this ligand (Fig. 7-22). The effects of ghrelin on GH secretion in humans are identical to or more potent than those of the non-natural GHRPs (see Fig. 7-20). In addition, ghrelin acutely increases circulating PRL, ACTH, cortisol, and aldosterone levels. There is debate con­cerning the extent and localization of ghrelin expression in the brain that must be resolved before the implications of gastric-derived ghrelin in the regulation of pituitary hormone secretion are fully understood. Furthermore, post-translational processing of pro-ghrelin gives rise to a second neuropeptide, obestatin, which may also have functional roles in activity of the GH/IGF-1 axis and metabolism. A proposed role for pro-ghrelin peptides in appetite and the regulation of food intake is discussed in Chapter 35.

For increasing GH levels, GHRP-6 is less effective in the presence of high blood glucose levels or high somatostatin levels, which result from high IGF-1 levels. For this reason, for best effect GHRP-6 should be taken while blood sugar is relatively low, for example about 30-60 minutes before a meal. GHRP-6 will have reduced effect if GH is being taken by injection, because GH increases IGF-1. Where GH use is limited to no more than about 14 IU per week, simultaneous GHRP-6 use probably still will increase GH somewhat further, but if GH use is greater than this then likely GHRP-6 injections will do little to nothing towards increasing GH levels any further.
There is the potential for the side effects associated with use of growth hormone when growth hormone secretagogues are used, particularly if the use is not under medical supervision. There are limited data on the safety of intravenous and subcutaneous use of AOD-9604 and on the long-term oral use of AOD-9604 in doses in excess of those used in clinical trials.
I take or did take organic colostrum at the beginning of last year after starting a paleo food plan after having a gut issue and every day am and pm after a period off about 3 months started to have to pee during the night ( I’m 60) but never the dribble or straining just pee and then during the day 4-5 times a day rush to the toilet and pee for what seems ages
The known side effects of IGF-1 injections include jaw pain, facial and hand swelling and heart-rhythm disturbances, especially if doses of more than 100 micrograms (mcg) are injected. Exceeding 100mcg of IGF-1 can actually cause your heart to stop beating and blood pressure to drop dramatically. This is caused by an IGF-1-induced drop in blood phosphate levels, and in the bodybuilding community is often prevented by administering phosphate with the IGF-1.
Evidence review and acceptance by the NDPSC in 2007, demonstrated that paracetamol/caffeine combination analgesics have a very low risk of nephrotoxicity. Similarly, the combination analgesics pose a very low risk of toxicity in overdosing with only two fatal cases reported in the USA. However, these cases involved other medications in addition to paracetamol/caffeine with the latter being available in very large pack sizes. Further, there are no known contraindications to the paracetamol/caffeine combination apart from hypersensitivity to the constituents."

Five of the submissions did not support the proposal while the sixth submission did. The former contend that potential risks of inadvertent use of caffeine in those at risk of an adverse event will be increased if selection of an analgesic is made without the assistance or intervention of a healthcare professional. There was also concern that the proposed exemption may result in an increase in liver damage due to excessive consumption of such a product. This was likely to result from people abusing these products as a source of stimulants.


Following the preliminary histological data, suggesting a reduction of wound inflammation and a far more organized ECM, we addressed the gene expression study toward inflammatory and profibrogenic markers. We primarily examined Cd36 expression following topical GHRP-6 application and found that peptide reduced its receptor expression () (Figure 4). Furthermore, the treatment significantly reduced Adam17 expression () and approached to significantly reduce Tnf (), which may partially contribute to explaining the substantial reduction of infiltrated inflammatory cells within the wound bed (Figure 4).
