GHRP-6 & GHRP-2 for Men
GHRP-6 or Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-6 is basically a type of injectable synthetic peptide hormone that has been seen to have beneficial effects on muscle growth and development as well as improving joint and skin health. It is also considered as one of the true human growth hormone secretagogues (GHS) that is available commercially these days.
This peptide works by directly targeting the HGH secretagogue receptor, which plays a key role in the activity of the ghrelin hormone in the body.
Apart from signaling the brain when to activate the body’s hunger responses and protecting neurons from damage, studies also show that ghrelin can stimulate the anterior pituitary gland to churn out higher amounts of growth hormones, which significantly helps pick up the pace on gaining muscle mass. Ghrelin can help prevent the buildup of fat while at it as well.
Moreover, GHRP-6 also has the capability to inhibit the activity of the somatostatin hormone in the body. When allowed to accumulate excessively, somatostatin tends to block the production and release of growth hormones in the system over time.
Growth hormone releasing peptide 2 or GHRP-2 is a synthetic analog of GHRP-6. It is well-known for its ability to effectively improve and stimulate the production of human growth hormone. It also plays a role as a ghrelin activator. Ghrelin is a newly discovered peptide found in the gut. It binds to growth hormone secretagogue receptors as well as promotes food and stomach emptying.
GHRP-2 is a potent hexapeptide similar to GHRP-6. It has been extensively studied for its ability as a GHS (growth hormone secretagogue) or to stimulate the production of growth hormones. It is popular for its capacity to stimulate the release of ghrelin resulting to increased appetite and hunger. This peptide is best used to correct decreased production of growth hormones. It is also able to help unusually lean individuals gain weight. It is also an excellent substance to reverse the effects of aging amongst persons with low growth hormone levels.
GHRP-2 works through stimulating the pituitary gland’s natural ability to produce endogenous human growth hormone (HGH). It enhances HGH production in two ways – first, it amplifies the transduction pathway of natural growth hormone releasing signal which lead to an increase in growth hormone levels. Second, it inhibits the activities of somatostatin thus bringing about an increase in endogenous growth hormone levels.
