Peptides (Growth Hormone Secretagogue)

White Papers

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:

A peptide that stimulates the natural production of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1).

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.

GHRH rhGH
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

BENEFITS:

Testosterone replacement can be administered orally (least effective), topically, intramuscularly (injection) or intranasally (still in research)

SIDE EFFECTS:

Rarely headache, “hunger pains”, night sweats

HOW DO I GET IT:

IM injection or sublingual troche

TYPES:

Ipamorelin, Sermorelin, Sermorelin with GHRP-2/GHRP-6, CJC 1295
