Our peptide therapies (Amino Acid Analogs) are also known as secretagogues (pronounced se-cre-ta-gog), a substance that promotes secretion. These amino acid chains communicate with the body to produce or release growth hormone. Hence a secretagogue causes the body’s own natural processes to produce growth hormone. Secretagogues do not act as growth hormones but rather stimulate the pituitary gland to secrete your stored growth hormone. The subcutaneous injection route of growth hormone stimulation is a preferred route to help slow down age and environmental reductions in growth hormone levels.
Ipamorelin acts as a synthetic ghrelin analogue that stimulates the release of an endogenous growth hormone within the somatotropes of the anterior pituitary. Specifically, Ipamorelin increases the number of somatotropes in a GH pulse by limiting the amount of somatostatin present.
Ipamorelin is very similar to GHRP 2 and 6 in that it mimics ghrelin and targets a specific HGH pulse. However, unlike other GHRP’s, this peptide doesn’t affect the release of cortisol, acetylcholine, prolactin and aldosterone thereby minimizing side effects. There is also less hunger stimulation as commonly seen with GHRP 6.
Benefits of Increased Growth Hormone Levels
The increased volume of human growth hormone (hGH) produced by the pituitary gland causes an increase in the production of Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) by the liver and results in several health benefits such as:
Decreased body fat
Increased muscle mass
Improved energy & strength
Improved quality of sleep
Helps combat insomnia
Increases physical and mental performance
Enhances calcium retention
Bone density Improves
Improves immune function
Improves fat burning
Improves skin elasticity
Aids in connective tissue repair post injury
