A peptide that stimulates the natural production of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1).
Peptides (Growth Hormone Secretagogue)
Following an extended period of consulting to AIFS, working closely with the internal team and gaining a deep understanding of their requirements, We were engaged for the design, development and migration of the main AIFS website and numerous sub-sites, onto the Wordpress platform.
WHAT IT IS:
TERMS TO KNOW:
- Growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH): any substance that induces the release of GH from the pituitary gland
- Growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP): as above
- Recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH or HGH): Artificial GH
WHAT IT DOES:
Increased muscle mass production, increased cellular turnover (ie faster healing and recovery), decreased body fat, increased bone density, improved sleep
GHRH/GHRP acts to “turn off the wake cycle” when the “sleep cycle turns on” to induce a deeper, more restful sleep.
|Naturally occur in the body||Artificial and synthesized|
|Peak throughout day and night like GH||Steady-state levels increase tolerance|
|Overdose is not possible||Overdose is possible|
|Improves pituitary activity||Shuts off pituitary-adrenal axis|
|Only acts on GH receptors||Awakens latent cancer cells|
Testosterone replacement can be administered orally (least effective), topically, intramuscularly (injection) or intranasally (still in research)
Rarely headache, “hunger pains”, night sweats
HOW DO I GET IT:
IM injection or sublingual troche
Ipamorelin, Sermorelin, Sermorelin with GHRP-2/GHRP-6, CJC 1295
