Ipamorelin is very similar to the growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRPs) GHRP 2 and GHRP 6 in that it mimics ghrelin (the hunger hormone) and targets a specific HGH pulse. However, unlike other GHRPs, this peptide doesn’t affect the release of cortisol, acetylcholine, prolactin and aldosterone thereby minimizing side effects experienced with other GH therapies, such as increased hunger. Because there are virtually no negative side effects, Ipamorelin can be prescribed more aggressively and more frequently than other therapies without the risk of elevated cortisol and acetylcholine blood plasma levels. This helps optimize HGH levels for a longer period of time, leading to more successful health outcomes.
CJC-1295 is also known by the names of Modified GRF 1-29, Mod GRF 1-29, CJC-1295 without DAC (DAC stands for Drug Affinity Complex) and also by its chemical name tetrasubstituted GRF (1-29). This variety of names makes it difficult for the average consumer to select or even research upon this compound. Since some manufacturers list all of its names and others list only one, it also becomes very confusing. However, there is a reason for this wide variety of names.
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. This should be kept in mind when utilizing GHRP-6 (or any HGH related compound) with aromatizable anabolic steroids.
Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-6 is responsible for releasing growth hormone in appropriate quantities in the body and it does so by stimulating the pituitary gland. This in turn facilitates production of protein that can later be used for building muscle mass and burning excess fat in your body. Though it is absolutely safe to consume supplements that are derived from GHRP, the only side effect you may need to deal with is intense hunger that you may experience in as little as half hour of taking the supplement,especially fruits and vegetables to get the desired results. The contribution made by GHRP 6 towards serving the purpose during workouts is immense.
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.
For those who are just getting started, make sure you go gradually. Start off with an eight-week cycle, and start off with 200 mcg (rather than 300) per day. Doing a test run will allow you to see how your body is going to react. If all goes well, you can then increase your dosage cycle to an 8 to 12 week period, and possibly add an additional injection dose daily, or increase to 300 mcg with each use.
But let’s say you’ve already implemented the IGF-1 boosting strategies of adequate calories, sufficient protein, weight training, plenty of sleep, smart supplementation, mineral intake and alcohol moderation. Should you take the next step, wander into an anti-aging clinic, find an online pharmacy, lurk in the depths of bodybuilding forums, and begin IGF-1 injections?
GH’s big USP is its ability to overcome injuries thanks to its restorative properties. Sadly, this notion is still in the firmly in the journal of bro-science. Research in the Clinical Science found when pigs were injected daily with GHRP-6 it had powerful antioxidant effects that could reduce internal heart attack damage. Your DNA isn’t bacon, but it does offer the telltale signs of a potential healing agent and many lifters do report success with restoring long-term overuse injuries, such as tendinitis or rotator cuff niggles. So while beefed up singlet-wearers have sung its praise, the labcoat-wearers haven’t confirmed its scientific efficacy just yet. So watch this space for the new GHRP-6 science that could keep your physique in the sweat game.
