Polypeptides are chains of amino acids. Proteins are made up of one or more polypeptide molecules.
Even though in bodybuilding circles we don’t hear much about Sermorelin, this doesn’t mean that this peptide does not have its uses. In fact, anti-aging and hormone replacement clinics have been prescribing it for years because it works as a clean GHRH. The problem for the bodybuilder or athlete is that it has a very short half-life of about ten (10) minutes.
Triptorelin is a type of hormone therapy drug used to treat prostate cancer. It is also called Decapeptyl SR or Gonapeptyl Depot. Researchers are also looking into using triptorelin as a treatment for breast cancer.
HGH Frag 176-191 is a fragment of the HGH peptide. Scientists found that if they truncated the peptide at the C terminal region they could isolate the fat loss attributes associated with HGH. Taking this fragment from HGH, including the peptide bonds from 176-191, they found they had developed a peptide that regulated fat loss 12.5 times better than regular HGH.
BPC-157 is known for super quick and professional Joint/tendon/ligament healing in all phases of clinical trials. BPC-157 has been shown in studies to heal torn quadriceps muscles, detached achilles tendon, muscles that have been damaged/crushed. Demonstrating dramatic fast recovery from muscle tears. Tendon to bone healing – increased ligament healing, BPC-157 has a variety of protective effects in the organs.
Thymosin Beta-4 is a naturally occurring peptide present in almost all animal and human cells. TB500 is a synthetic peptide that has been directly linked to recovery as it is plays a vital role in building new blood vessels, new small muscle tissue fibers, cell migration and blood cell reproduction. If you are an injured athlete, all of these properties are something that becomes very desirable when looking to speed up the recovery process.
Oxytocin is a mammalian hormone that acts primarily as a neuromodulator in the brain. Oxytocin is best known for its roles in sexual reproduction, in particular during and after childbirth. It is released in large amounts after distension of the cervix and uterus during labor, facilitating birth, and after stimulation of the nipples, facilitating breastfeeding. The word oxytocin was derived from the Greek word“, meaning quick birth. The oxytocin peptide is synthesized as an inactive precursor protein from the OXT gene.
Even though in bodybuilding circles we don’t hear much about Sermorelin, this doesn’t mean that this peptide does not have its uses. In fact, anti-aging and hormone replacement clinics have been prescribing it for years because it works as a clean GHRH. The problem for the bodybuilder or athlete is that it has a very short half-life of about ten (10) minutes. This becomes an unattractive feature when compared to the half-life of MOD GRF (1-29) (CJC 1295 without DAC), which comes in around 30 minutes. Despite its short window, it does bind quite effectively to the pituitary receptors. The other main down side associated with its very short half life is that it is quickly broken down by blood enzymes within minutes. This is why a GHRH peptide with a half life of 30 minutes or longer is desirable, since it will survive the blood enzyme death and allow it to circulate the body looking for hormone receptors to bind to.
Hexarelin is another hexapeptide like GHRP-6. Unlink the other GHRP’s out there, Hexarelin is the dark horse, the black sheep, the underdog not usually mentioned and often over looked for certain qualities. This grossly underestimated peptide shouldn’t be pushed to the side, but rather examined to understand its benefits and usability for bodybuilders and athletes alike.
Ipamorelin, like other peptides, comes as a freeze dried powder that is very delicate. You can store it in the refrigerator or at room temperature before reconstituting. Once reconstituted with bacteriostatic water, the vials must be stored in a cool dry place like your refrigerator. Insulin syringes are the best way to administer it, usually via subcutaneous injection.
