GHRH (1 μg/kg) plus GHRP-6 (1 μg/kg) is given intravenously at 0 minutes and blood drawn for GH sampling at 0 and 120 minutes . GH releasing peptide-6 (GHRP-6) is an artificial hexapeptide  that activates the ghrelin receptor . Combined administration of GHRP-6 and GHRH is the most potent stimulus to GH release, with excellent reproducibility and no serious side effects . GHRH/GHRP-6 is a viable alternative to the ITT in patients with organic pituitary disease, however there is overlap between GH levels attained in the control group and severely GH-deficient patients. Since GHRH and GHRP act directly on the pituitary, it is possible that their administration restores GH secretion in patients with a deficiency of these secretagogues because of hypothalamic disease .
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.
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.

Peptides are short chain amino acid monomers linked by a peptide bond. The body utilizes these short amino acids chains to secrete/pulse growth hormone (GH) that is already stored in your body. This is a very attractive option for those who are not able to utilize synthetic human growth hormone (HGH) naturally. In fact, this could even be a safer alternative for those seeking to use growth hormone for recovery, anti-aging and fat-loss. There are a multitude of peptides on the market and new ones being created almost monthly. Therefore, for the sake of an overview, let me just touch upon the ones that are most commonly used. To begin, let me start by first breaking down the two most important peptide groups for bodybuilding.
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.
As the name indicates, this peptide is a fragment of human growth hormone. It is more specifically a modified form of the amino acids 176-191 in the C-terminal section of the latter substance. Bodybuilders mainly use it enhance fat burning for improved and more noticeable muscle growth. For weight loss, HGH Fragment 176-191 is thought to be considerably more potent than regular growth hormone. It also offers anti-aging benefits as a result of positive effects on IGF-1 levels.
Triamcinolone acetonide (TA) has long been the steroid of choice for the treatment of skin fibrotic disorders, providing the best relief of local symptoms such as scars flattening. Nevertheless, TA is associated with adverse events such as dermal atrophy, telangiectasia, and immunosuppression [4, 5]. Despite the multitude of therapeutic strategies to prevent or reduce keloid and HTS formation, these conditions remain as orphan clinical niches of ultimately effective interventions .
As previously explained, multiple GHRP-6 doses are required throughout the day due to the pulsatile nature of the HGH release, and the administration of these doses are typically administered on average 3 times daily spaced evenly apart. More administrations are acceptable for greater effects on physique and performance, but it is advised that approximately 3 hours in between each injection is ensured so as to allow the pituitary gland to restore its storage of HGH. The most common protocol is as follows:
Obviously, Increasing GH (and therefore IGF-1) levels are desirable for those looking to improve their physique in terms of increased muscle mass and loss of body fat, rejuvenation and strengthening of joints through connective tissue synthesis and bone mass density increases, as well as enhancing immune response and stimulating the immune system, particularly in those of us getting on in years (ahem). For anti-ageing purposes, GHRP-6 is normally singly dosed just before bed at night with users reporting the best night’s sleep they have ever had plus some funky dreams to match (since GH is released during REM or ‘dream sleep’ so the GHRP-6 sort of ‘forces’ us to dream). For bodybuilding purposes, users attempt to mimic pulsatile GH release for best results by administering multiple times throughout the day.
In 1999, seven adult patients with GH deficiency and LV failure received hexarelin administrations. The GH response to hexarelin was negligible in these patients. Moreover, hexarelin administration increased their left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) without changing catecholamine levels, mean blood pressure (MBP), or cardiac output. For the first time, the acute administration of hexarelin proved to induce a positive inotropic effect in humans, which is GH independent and mediated by specific myocardial receptors for a GH secretagogue peptide.29 A subsequent study involving hexarelin administration to normal adults, severe GH-deficient patients (N = 7), and patients with severe ischemic DCM (N = 12) confirmed that the acute administration of hexarelin exerts a GH-independent positive inotropic effect likely mediated by specific GHRP myocardial receptors.30 This pioneering group subsequently evaluated the cardiac performances of the acute hexarelin administration (2.0 µg/kg, i.v.) in patients undergoing bypass surgery in comparison to patients given GH-releasing hormone, recombinant human GH, or placebo. The study concluded that the acute administration of hexarelin improved cardiac performance without any relevant variation in systemic vascular resistance and induced a reduction of wedge pressure and, significantly, that these cardiotropic effects were not shown by the other concurrent interventions.31
GHRP mechanism of action. GHRPs are endowed with the ability to bind two different receptors that seem to mediate its cytoprotective and other pharmacological properties (GHS-R1a and CD36). The main biological properties/pharmacological actions of GHRP-6 as cyto- and cardioprotective candidates are summarized as follows: Inotropic: mediated by an elevation of Ca2+ influx via PLC/DAG/PKC, through the voltage-gated calcium channel, triggering Ca2+ release from thapsigargin-sensitive intracellular stores, which translated in a positive inotropic response without a chronotropic effect. Anti-fibrotic: via upregulation of PPARγ, which is followed by a transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β), CTGF, and platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) downregulation. Anti-inflammatory: blunts NFκB expression and activation. Cell survival: it involves the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase/RAC-alpha serine/threonine-protein kinase (PI-3K/AKT1) pathway, as the induction of the hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1α). Cardioprotective: as shown, it involves different biological actions that converge to enhance cardiomyocytes survival. Vasodilatory: it seems to involve e-NOS upregulation and endothelin activity reduction. Anabolic: it is mediated by the IGF-1/AKT1 and mTOR pathway activity.
Peptides: Are a small chain of amino acids that isn’t quite long enough to be considered a protein. In other words they are the building blocks for protein in the body. They actually have a wide range of functions with the most popular being an increase in growth hormone, increase in recovery (and by default muscle building) and even a natural tan.
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.
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”.
It is important to understand that GHRP-6 doses on its own provides considerable HGH release from the pituitary gland, but is nowhere near as effective as the potential HGH release resultant from GHRP-6 combined with a GHRH such as Mod GRF 1-29 (CJC-1295 without DAC). Studies have demonstrated that the combination of GHRP-6 and a GHRH analogue such as Mod GRF 1-29 will generate a 77% increase in HGH output compared to GHRP-6 administration alone. Other studies have gone so far as to explicitly state that GHRP-6 requires GHRH in order to stimulate maximal HGH stimulation as evidenced by the fact that in test subjects, the inclusion of a GHRH can increase HGH output by an additional 81 – 95%.
Peptides can make the goal of growing bigger muscles possible. They may also help to burn body fat, improve muscle recovery and slow aging. Each type has specific purposes for which it is more useful. These compounds are in many cases beneficial because of how they boost release of growth hormone by the pituitary gland. GH secretion is amplified when GHRH and GHRP substances are used together. As awesome as the benefits they offer sound, you should remember that peptides can be legally used for research purpose only.
Everybody has unique goals and these are best adjusted by your dosages. Research in The Journal Of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism found 100mcg will saturate all your receptors, but taking 200mcg will cough up an additional 50% of effectiveness, where as 300mcg delivers just a 25% of an additional boost. So the law of diminishing returns is firmly in place with this peptide. What’s more, higher doses were found in a study in The Journal Of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism to increase people’s stress hormone, cortisol in doses over a 100mcg so if you do decide to delve into this supplement, stick to the lower doses.
