GHRP-6 is a peptide that promotes the synthesis of growth hormone. Initially, this drug was invented for the treatment of people suffering from a deficiency of growth hormone in the body, but over time it has become quite popular among the representatives of power sports (including bodybuilding).
By its structure and properties, GHRP-6 is similar to GHRP-2 - the main difference is that GHRP-2 enhances appetite, and also increases the concentration of prolactin and cortisol. Despite some differences, these peptides may well be used together - in this case there will be a synergistic effect (mutual enhancement of each other's properties). This was confirmed by scientific experiments that showed that the maximum level of growth hormone in the blood of an athlete was observed with simultaneous reception of GHRP-2 and GHRP-6.
GHRP-6 can be taken in a variety of ways - under the skin, ingestion, under the tongue, but the most popular method is intramuscular injection.
His popularity in bodybuilding this drug was due to the fact that he helped to increase endurance, and also to increase the relief of muscles.
Basic Properties of GHRP-6
- Increasing strength
- Muscle growth
- Burning of subcutaneous fat
- Strengthening immunity
- Strengthening bones
- Anti-inflammatory action
- Protection of the liver
According to the research, the drug GHRP-6 significantly increased the concentration of growth hormone within 30 minutes after administration. Elevated levels of growth hormone were observed within 3-4 hours after injection, then dropped to the initial value.
How to take GHRP-6?
The optimal dose of GHRP-6 is 1 μg per 1 kg of body weight. With the use of lower standards, the increase in production of growth hormone decreases. When using higher dosages, an additional increase in the concentration of growth hormone is not observed.
The total duration of the course should not exceed 4-8 weeks. It was proved that long courses (up to 16 weeks) led to tolerance of the organism, reducing the effectiveness of GHRP-6. The optimal break between the courses is 1-2 weeks.
The problem of reducing the sensitivity of the body to GHRP-6 is effectively solved by the additional administration of CJC-1295.
Combination with other drugs
The effectiveness of GHRP-6 can be significantly increased by combining it with the use of other drugs:
- CJC-1295 - is the best combination to date, enhancing the effect of GHRP-6 six-fold
- GHRP-2 - increases the efficiency of the course by an average of 2 times
- Insulin - increases the effectiveness of the course by 30-40%
- Arginine - increases the effectiveness of the course by 10-20%
In the course of numerous studies of side effects or pathological changes in the body from taking GHRP-6 was not found. In addition, GHRP-6 helped improve the protective properties of the body. When using super-large dosages (more than 600 μg per day and higher), an increased production of prolactin and cortisol is observed.
At the injection site, a burning sensation can be observed, which completely disappears within 10-15 minutes.
