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.
After repeated intravenous (i.v.) boluses of growth hormone-releasing peptide-6 (GHRP-6) we found recently increases of growth hormone (GH), corticotropin (ACTH) and cortisol levels and of the amount of stage 2 sleep. In clinical use, oral (p.o.), intranasal (i.n.) and sublingual (s.l.) routes of administration have advantages over i.v. administration. We compared the sleep-endocrine effects of 300 microg/kg of body weight (b.w.) GHRP-6 in enteric-coated capsules given p.o. at 21.00 h and of 30 microg/kg GHRP-6 i.n. or 30 microg/kg GHRP-6 sl. given at 22.45 h in normal young male controls with placebo conditions. After GHRP-6 p.o. secretion of GH, ACTH and cortisol remained unchanged. The only effect of GHRP-6 s.l. was a trend toward an increase in GH in the first half of the night. GHRP-6 i.n. prompted a significant increase in GH concentration during the total night and a trend toward an increase in ACTH secretion during the first half of the night, whereas cortisol secretion remained unchanged. Furthermore, after GHRP-6 i.n., sleep stage 2 increased in the second half of the night by trend, and spectral analysis of total night non-rapid eye movement (REM) sleep revealed a decrease of delta power by trend. In contrast sleep stage 2 decreased during the second half of the night after GHRP-6 p.o. Our data demonstrate that GHRP-6 is capable of modulating GH and ACTH secretion as well as sleep. However, the effects depend upon dosage, duration and route of administration.
Ipamorelin is a pentapeptide, meaning that it is composed of five amino acids, that mimics the body’s natural GH release. Ipamorelin is a growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP) and analogue of the hormone Ghrelin. It induces GH release and increases the number of somatarophs(cells responsible for GH release) in a GH pulse by suppressing somatostatin.
I weigh 215 and i have no idea what my bodyfat is, but its pretty high and not where i want it. Im currently in the middle of a strength phase, training 4 days a week Westside style. Im in the middle of week three of that, so im gonna finish my 8 week phase, training that way and see what these peps do. I weigh and measure everything i eat and keep up with it on my phone my fitness pal. I know exactly how many calories i need everyday. Im going to keep my calories at maintenance and see what happens. Hopefully I can keep up with this and let you guys know what kind of results i am getting.
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.
This peptide is a modified fragment of hGH which contains the portion of the molecule that is believed to be responsible for hGH’s anti-obesity effects. The peptide has been shown to increase fat burning without the increase in blood sugar and growth rate that has been seen with hGH itself. AOD 9604 has been deemed safe for chronic use by the FDA, receiving Human GRAS status in 2014. In addition to its utility as an anti-obesity peptide, AOD 9604 has been shown to have very favorable cartilage repair and regenerative properties, especially when paired with peptide BPC 157.
The key to your exercise recovery rests firmly on how well you behave between the sheets. No, not like that, sleep is a time when your muscles repair and a big catalyst for this is the recovery power lies in your hormones, namely GH. Research in the journal Neuroendocrinology found GHRP6 supplementation improves the quality, but not duration, of your sleep. And better sleep is a formidable gladiator in your armoury if you want to make your muscles more maximus, plus it can improve your ability to heal from injury, but it’s not all gravy. Some users do report feeling painfully ravenous, preventing them from getting quality kip. If this is the case then have a big feast after a dose, then hit the hay. Good cop for anyone looking to build, bad cop for anyone looking to lean up.
