AOD has been shown to target abnormal fat stores, and to prevent fat from being stored in the cells. Studies have shown that it reduces the most stubborn fat regions (like abdominal fat). It also has other benefits including increasing muscle mass, increasing IGF-1 (insulin growth factor) in a positive way to metabolise fat, and increase the amount of energy burned for the same amount of activity.
I was using MT II while using the 1st vial and lost 14 lbs in 10 days. Had to fly to Pittsburgh for a couple days and started 2nd vial with no MT II and dropped 8 more. I weighed yesterday upon completion of the 2nd vial with shoes and clothes on. Was very pleased with the results. I did a cycle of T3 prior to the frag and didnt do near as well and was fighting muscle loss, felt like crap ect.. Will be purchasing more, I use Southern Research on the peptides.
Natriuretic peptide measurements were tested for normality and were logarithmically transformed for analysis. We used paired t tests to examine the change in BMI, blood pressure, and natriuretic peptides before and after surgery. Mixed effect models using all non‐missing data from 18 study subjects were used to assess the effects of surgery and intravenous saline and their interaction on plasma Nt‐proANP, Nt‐proBNP, and mature ANP and BNP levels, as well as echocardiographic measures. To account for repeated measures for each subject, a spatial power structure for ANP. Nt‐proANP, BNP, and Nt‐proBNP, and a completely general (unstructured) covariance matrix for echocardiographic outcomes were used. None of the interactions terms were significant and P values reported are based on models without interaction. A secondary analysis after covariate adjustment for age, sex, and blood pressure was also performed. All analyses were conducted using SAS (Cary, NC). A two‐sided P<0.05 was considered statistically significant for the primary outcome.
Two submissions supported the proposal as advertising was considered to bring important benefits in terms of better information for consumers on the availability of a combination product with rapid and effective pain relief and reduced doses of analgesic. Responsible advertising will alert consumers that combination products are available from pharmacies with advice from the pharmacist. One submission opposed the proposal as it was believed that there would be no benefit to the consumer by amending Appendix H to include a new entry for paracetamol/ibuprofen.
“We are delighted with these results,” stated Metabolic Pharmaceuticals CEO, Chris Belyea. “The evidence from the trial is that over 12 weeks AOD9604 induces competitive weight loss with accompanying health benefits at a low dose and has superior tolerability. Our next major focus is a partnership with a major pharmaceutical company to assist in financing late stage longer term human clinical trials for worldwide marketing approval as a prescription treatment.”

The process to get a cream doesn't happen overnight. Explains Smeath: "A patient will complete a comprehensive medical questionnaire, which is sent to one of our prescribing doctors. [They] review all medical notes, make contact with the patient and once approved, send a prescription to one of two TGA-approved compounding pharmacies in Australia who ship [the peptides] directly."

The weight lost by the 1mg group was slightly more than that achieved by the world’s largest selling prescription obesity medication in similar trials over the same period, without its troublesome side effects. The trial results also demonstrated a small but consistent improvement in cholesterol profiles, and a reduction in the number of patients with impaired glucose tolerance.
I have not used IGF-1 but I have used a stack of Ipamorelin and CJC 1295 no DAC. I did not do any lab tests before, during or after but definitely noticed increased fat loss and better sleep. I was not trying to increase muscle so there was no change to speak of for me. But you are not recommending their use even without IGF-1, is that correct? I do not compete in anything so WADA is not a concern.
Getting enough sleep is essential to feeling good – and losing weight. “It’s not so much that if you sleep, you will lose weight, but if you are sleep-deprived, meaning that you are not getting enough minutes of sleep or good quality sleep, your metabolism will not function properly,” explains Michael Breus, PhD and the clinical director of the sleep division for Arrowhead Health in Glendale, Ariz.
I’m 50 and have been using CJC-1295+Ipamorelin Combo for almost 1 year now. Yes with 2 rest periods. Very very happy with the results. Skin is smoother / softer to touch reduced bags under my eyes, my wife loves the new feel. I train 5 days a week and the increase in muscle volume and tone is very noticeable. I will say however it is a slow steady natural looking increase. Recovery is great and I think it is helping with injury repair, as i have a problem Knee that is feeling alot better ever since I’ve been on this product. As you can see the cost is high but if there were no outstanding results my wife would say I was a Di#*head, but she is encouraging me to continue. Train hard, eat well and look better. Use CJC-1295+Ipamorelin Combo. I do
However, both the original GRF (1-29) and the Mod GRF 1-29 required frequent dosages. So a new compound called CJC-1295 was created which was far more stable. This compound was made by adding Lysine – which is a non-peptide, and is also called Drug Affinity Complex or DAC. Since the original Mod GRF 1-29 does not contain DAC, it is named as CJC-1295 without DAC. However, the actual CJC-1295 is not only difficult, but also very expensive to produce. This is why it is not produced or used extensively. The Mod GRF 1-29 is far easier and cheaper to produce.
There were no significant changes in IGF-1 values observed during 24 hours following any AOD9604 dose compared with placebo. No significant differences in glucose levels were observed following AOD9604 administration compared with placebo with the exception of one isolated time point (8% increase 12 hour post treatment in one subject receiving 54 mg AOD09604). There were no clinically significant observable trends in vital signs, physical examinations, abnormalities noted in the ECG measurements, or findings in the safety-related laboratory tests throughout the study.
In summary, our study provides evidence of an alteration in the natriuretic peptide “set point” with weight loss. These findings highlight the potential role of a “natriuretic peptide deficiency” in obesity‐related conditions such as hypertension and heart failure. One can further speculate that reversal of the “natriuretic peptide deficiency” could play a role in the improvement of blood pressure and cardiac function after weight loss.
But for maintenance of adequate and natural IGF-1 and growth hormone, and to achieve that sweet spot of not becoming to pro-growth while also not becoming a weak, muscle-less noodle, that sweet spot of producing adequate insulin without producing too much, and that sweet spot of increasing cellular repair without letting cellular division get “out of control”, I have indeed been implementing three specific strategies: my IGF-1 “trilogy”.
The natriuretic peptide system, the primary salt‐excreting system in humans, acts as an endogenous antagonist of the renin‐angiotensin‐aldosterone system.9 The primary circulating natriuretic peptides are atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and B‐type natriuretic peptide (BNP).10 ANP is produced primarily in the atria, while BNP is derived from both the atria and the ventricles.10, 11
Great, I just filled a script for ipamorelin yesterday and it will ship today. This will be the 1st time use. I’m 41, 6’1 210 pretty fit, recently had an acl replaced 1.5 yr ago and a wrist surgery, and have some lower back and shoulder pain that I ignore. How long/short could I use this to feel any rebuilding effect. I certainly don’t want bloat, or cancer. I might be able to cancel the order 1st thing this a.m. Thanks.

As women age, the #1 reason for weight gain is hormonal imbalance. In fact, hormonal imbalance can lead to unwanted adult acne, loss of sexual desire, and sagging breasts. When you correct this imbalance, you begin to lose body fat, overcome acne, naturally lift and enhance breast tissue, and improve libido! OxySelect Pink was formulated for women by women, and the results are incredible and comes with a 100% money-back guarantee! Read More
Peptides are a generic name given to any group of amino acids that are linked together to form a chain. Essentially, they are similar to proteins, though in much shorter lengths (less than 50 units long). In the world of bodybuilding and exercise science, peptides generally refer to one of two things. They can refer to either broken protein fragments from hydrolysed proteins, or peptide hormones and related compounds.
Both human GH (hGH) and a lipolytic fragment (AOD9604) synthesized from its C-terminus are capable of inducing weight loss and increasing lipolytic sensitivity following long-term treatment in mice. One mechanism by which this may occur is through an interaction with theβ -adrenergic pathway, particularly with theβ 3-adrenergic receptors (β3-AR). Here we describe how hGH and AOD9604 can reduce body weight and body fat in obese mice following 14 d of chronic ip administration. These results correlate with increases in the level of expression ofβ 3-AR RNA, the major lipolytic receptor found in fat cells. Importantly, both hGH and AOD9604 are capable of increasing the repressed levels of β3-AR RNA in obese mice to levels comparable with those in lean mice. The importance ofβ 3-AR was verified when long-term treatment with hGH and AOD9604 in β3-AR knock-out mice failed to produce the change in body weight and increase in lipolysis that was observed in wild-type control mice. However, in an acute experiment, AOD9604 was capable of increasing energy expenditure and fat oxidation in theβ 3-AR knock-out mice. In conclusion, this study demonstrates that the lipolytic actions of both hGH and AOD9604 are not mediated directly through the β3-AR although both compounds increase β3-AR expression, which may subsequently contribute to enhanced lipolytic sensitivity.
If there's one thing that science has definitively said about AOD9604, it is that it is safe and has no side effects. Calzada, after trying the peptide out as an anti-obesity and anti-arthritic, has succeeded in having the peptide declared "Generally regarded as safe" by the FDA, which makes it legal to use as a food additive in America. Calzada, seemingly under no pretense that their product has pharmaceutical properties, is now trying to break into the US over the counter supplement and "Nutraceutical" market with AOD9604 (2,4). Interestingly, the compound has only been approved for use in levels of up to 1mg per day (2), whereas the doses used in trials generally hovered around 500ug/kg (5,6), which means a 100kg person was receiving 50mg of the peptide daily. There is no science behind the peptide, or the dosage, and Calzada themselves have previously said AOD9604 is not effective orally (2).
Then there’s colostrum. Colostrum is packed with growth factors, including IGF-1, that amplify lean muscle gains and increase the body’s ability to burn fat. In many studies, colostrum has been shown to restore IGF-1 and stimulate IGF-1 production. Colostrum is also a natural immunity drug, containing antibodies and antigens that knock out disease-causing agents such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi.
We enrolled 15 obese individuals (mean BMI 45±5.4 kg/m2) undergoing gastric bypass surgery. Before and 6 months after surgery, subjects were admitted to the clinical research center and administered a large‐volume intravenous saline challenge. Echocardiography and serial blood sampling were performed. From the pre‐operative visit to 6 months after surgery, subjects had a mean BMI decrease of 27%. At the 6‐month visit, N‐terminal pro‐atrial NP (Nt‐proANP) levels were 40% higher before, during, and after the saline infusion, compared with levels measured at the same time points during the pre‐operative visit (P<0.001). The rise in Nt‐pro‐ANP induced by the saline infusion (≈50%) was similar both before and after surgery (saline, P<0.001; interaction, P=0.2). Similar results were obtained for BNP and Nt‐proBNP; resting concentrations increased by 50% and 31%, respectively, after gastric bypass surgery. The increase in NP concentrations after surgery was accompanied by significant decreases in mean arterial pressure (P=0.004) and heart rate (P<0.001), and an increase in mitral annular diastolic velocity (P=0.02).

Finally, the hexadecapeptide AOD9604 did not induce allergenic reactions when consumed over 24 weeks. Blood of patients was analyzed for the presence of anti-AOD9604 antibody formation at various times and at the end of the studies (latest time point after 24 weeks). In none of the performed studies, at no time, were anti-AOD9604 antibodies detected in serum collected from any subjects in any treatment group.
From this study it appears that the β3-AR is an important contributor to the effects observed on body weight in obese mice treated with AOD9604 and hGH. To determine whether theβ 3-AR is partly responsible for this effect, we examined the effects of AOD9604 and hGH in theβ 3-KO mouse. The β3-KO mouse is not grossly obese, but female mice have increased fat depots (21) and the mice do develop late-onset obesity (Summers, R. J., personal communication). AOD9604 and hGH increased body mass and decreased BAT mass in the WT strain but had no effect in the KO animals. In WT mice, plasma glycerol was increased in response to AOD9604 and hGH treatment (4 wk). However, in the KO mice, only hGH resulted in increased levels of glycerol in the KO mice, and this effect was significantly less than that observed in the WT mice. This suggests that the regulation of the β3-AR is essential in the ability of AOD9604 and hGH to mediate chronic effects on lipolysis and fat mass reduction.
In ob/ob mice, both AOD9604 and hGH reduced both white and brown adipose tissue mass and increased β3-AR RNA expression. This suggested that an elevation inβ 3-AR RNA expression is associated with increased fat metabolism and a reduction in the fat tissue mass in the ob/ob mouse model. Obese mice have lower levels ofβ 3-AR expression in their adipose tissues than lean mice, shown in this study and others (14). The ability of AOD9604 and hGH to increase the level ofβ 3-AR RNA expression in obese mice to a level that is comparable to those in lean mice is an exciting finding. However, it must also be considered that both hGH and AOD9604 may influence the expression of other members of the adrenergic pathway, such as the β1-ARs, hormonesensitive lipase, and signaling proteins, which are all expressed in adipose tissue and associated with lipolysis. The importance of the change inβ 3-AR expression with AOD9604 and hGH in humans is not established and will depend on the use of potent and selectiveβ 3-AR agonists that are active at the human receptor.
Your body requires a minimum number of calories each day in order to maintain your current weight, called your “calorie maintenance level”. If you only ate that number of calories each day, you would never gain or lose a pound. This is the calorie count with which you will maintain your weight. Your calorie maintenance level is the number of calories your body requires to function, and these calories are burned through walking, sitting, moving, pumping your blood, breathing, digesting food – just living, basically.
I know so... you demonstrate a severe lack of knowledge of how the compound works which is kinda funny that you came here to big note your self about facts... i agree the substance is grey area PE but your attempt at a cheap shot to sound all informed is flat out wrong... its the crux of the argument as to why everyone is so confused... you have made a complete fool out of your self trying to sound all smart and stuff...

Resting plasma concentrations (mean±SEM) of mature ANP and Nt‐proANP were 14±2 pg/mL and 4±0.6 pg/mL at baseline. After gastric bypass surgery, the resting plasma concentrations rose to 24±5 pg/mL and 7±0.7 pg/mL for ANP and Nt‐proANP (increased by 23% and 43%), respectively (P=0.016 and 0.008). Absolute concentrations of ANP and Nt‐proANP were higher in individuals after bypass surgery at all acute time points during and after administration of intravenous saline (Figure 1A and 1B; P<0.001). A secondary analysis, adjusted for age, sex, and mean arterial pressure yielded similar results.
One combination of natural supplements that boost IGF-1 with no injections required would simply be a one-two combo of whey protein and colostrum. Throw small bits of natural dairy into the mix and you’ve got a pretty potent trilogy for not just increasing IGF-1, but also all the fat loss, lean muscle gain, and cellular repair mechanisms that accompany a surge in growth hormone.
The weight lost by the 1mg group was slightly more than that achieved by the world’s largest selling prescription obesity medication in similar trials over the same period, without its troublesome side effects. The trial results also demonstrated a small but consistent improvement in cholesterol profiles, and a reduction in the number of patients with impaired glucose tolerance.
At both visits, saline infusion was associated with a significant increase in left ventricular (LV) end‐diastolic volume (P=0.001 for saline effect), whereas LV end‐systolic volume was unchanged. Stroke volume and cardiac output increased in response to saline administration at both pre‐ and post‐bypass visits. The effect of saline infusion on cardiac function did not differ before and after surgery (saline×surgery interaction P values non‐significant).
There are thousands of weight loss programs to choose from. A Google search for how to lose weight returns over 97 million results. With so much information out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed or confused. Especially since most of the information you come across on weight loss is completely false. There are gimmicks and bad advice that lead desperate dieters down the wrong path, and the only measurable result is the decrease in the weight of your wallet!

Paracetamol/caffeine formulations have a long-established safety and efficacy profile over 25 years of use as an open-sale medicine in major markets around the world. The paracetamol/caffeine combination analgesic was registered as a schedule 2 product in Australia and has been marketed since 2010. Since that time no new significant issues or potential risks have been reported.
In laboratory tests on fat cells from rodents, pigs, dogs, and humans, the HGH fragment released fat specifically from obese fat cells but not from lean ones, reduced new fat accumulation in all fat cells, enhanced the burning of fat. In rodents (rats and mice), HGH fragment reduced body fat in obese animals but, enhanced fat burning without changing food consumption or inducing growth (as it does not increase IGF levels) or any other unwanted Growth Hormone effect. Recent research has shown AOD9604 to be an extremely potent and effective fat burner. Metabolic is developing AOD-9604 for the potential treatment of obesity. Research studies have shown that AOD9604 actually acts on the reduction of excessive adipose tissues such as those in the abdominal area, increase in muscle mass, and enhances the lipid content of the body.
AOD9604 is a peptide (a chain of amino acids) which was developed and patented by a company called Metabolic Pharmaceuticals in Australia in the late 1990s. AOD stands for "Anti Obesity Drug". This peptide has an amino acid sequence that mimics the lipolytic region of human growth hormone (the region of this hormone thought to be responsible for burning fat) and it has been promoted variously as a weight loss supplement, as an aid to muscle and cartilage repair, and a treatment for osteoarthritis by its manufacturers. It is also known as lipotropin and Tyr-hGH fragment, and is generally available these days as a transdermal cream or an injectable.
Like everything in life, you need to be careful. Too much of a good thing can be bad. Water and oxygen are essential for survival, however in excessive amounts be prepared to have ‘000’ on standby. The same principal is true for any drug or peptide. When used at the recommended dose, clinical trials have proven peptides to be effective with minimal side effects, if any. In addition, the body even has its own natural feedback mechanisms in place to downregulate high levels.
