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.
GHRP’s come in a lypholised dry powder form, usually in vials of 5,000-10,000mcg (5-10mg). To mix, bacteriostatic or sterile water is normally used for reconstitution. Once diluted, peptides lasts quite a long time when left alone in the refrigerator (I would say safely up to 3 months), but some users (myself inculded) load pins with the required total daily dose and freeze them en-batch, ready for defrosting shortly before their shot is due…just to guard against any possible temperature related degradation.
The Half Life of GHRP 2 is pretty short. 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. GHRP 2 has the ability to stimulate secretion of other growth hormones and increase food consumption. When you start taking in GHRP 2 at regular intervals the level of growth hormones being released in your body increases considerably. GHRP 2 is known to have better control in the release of prolactin and Cortisol.
GH secretagogues differ from exogenous rHGH in their effects primarily because endogenous GH contains all five isoforms of growth hormone, whereas exogenous GH contains only the 20 kilodalton isoform. Different isoforms affect tissues in discreet ways that the 20 kDa isoform cannot. Administration of GH secretagogues causes a pulse-release of GH from the pituitary which is cleared from the body within a few hours. This does not significantly raise plasma insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) levels.
