In summary, we found that weight loss in obese individuals undergoing gastric bypass surgery is associated with higher natriuretic peptide concentrations across a range of loading conditions. This observation is consistent with a higher “set point” of natriuretic peptide levels after weight loss. That these findings are accompanied by improvements in blood pressure, heart rate and echocardiographic diastolic function provides persuasive evidence that the increase in natriuretic peptides with weight loss is “primary” and not secondary to alterations in cardiac structure or function.
•If injecting just a GHRP or GHRH product on their own, avoid eating/drinking anything high in fat for 3 hours before your injection and anything high in carbohydrates for 2 hours before (i.e. always do your injection on an empty stomach), otherwise the amount of GH release they cause may be significantly blunted leading to poor results. •If injecting both a GHRP and GHRH together (e.g. 100mcg of both GHRP-6 and Modified GRF 1-29) studies have proven that their ability to release GH returns to full-strength as little as 1 hour (60 minutes) post-meal. This gives users greater flexibility with their meal timings, especially since consuming sufficient calories is so critical to building muscle. •Whether injecting GH peptides alone or along with others, always wait at least 20 minutes after your injection before consuming anything. Once at least 20 minutes has passed, consume a food/beverage high in protein and/or carbohydrates to stimulate an insulin spike (if you inject in the morning and around your workout, this meal/shake should be high protein and high carbohydrates, if you inject at night this consumption should be protein only as protein is sufficient enough to spike insulin, but without the negative impact on fat gain which carbohydrates can contribute to).
These segments of the synthetic peptide AOD9604 have been researched for their in vivo effects in laboratory mice musculus. Results have shown that AOD9604 have resulted to a short-period increase in blood glucose and a more sustained increase in plasma insulin, together with other fragments such as 172-191, 177-191 and 178-191. In addition, the researchers have suggested that functionality of the peptide depends not only in the informational sequence but should also have the correct physical configuration (Ng and Borstein 1978). Also, AOD9604, being a region of high accessibility to proteases and also rich in proline, have been demonstrated to affect the conformational change in the cytoplasmic domain of the band 3 of erythrocyte membrane protein by serving as the hinge for the pivoting of the two subdomains. This then suggest that such residue is significant in conformational changes be serving as sites for peripheral protein binding in some body cells (Low et al. 1984).
Collagen is also supposed to help with joint pain. Although I (luckily) don’t have chronic pain in my joints, my knees do flare up from time to time ever since I ran a half marathon a couple years ago. I also get some soreness in what feels like the bones in my legs a couple times a week, usually after a run or intense cardio session. If drinking collagen would ease this pain, then I was game.
•Avoid eating/drinking anything with calories for three (3) hours either side of your injection. •Try to make all your meals throughout the day high protein, low fat and low carbohydrates (eg. meat/fish with vegetables/salad). •Have as few meals as possible during the day as periods of fasting have been shown in many studies to improve fat loss and also longevity (i.e. eating less will make you live longer).
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
The β3-AR and actin primers were intron spanning to potentially reveal contaminant genomic DNA (none observed). Reverse primers were labeled before the PCR in a reaction mixture containing 120 pmol oligonucleotide, 70 μCi[γ -33P]ATP (Bresagen, Adelaide, Australia), 1× One-Phor-All Plus buffer (Pharmacia Biotech, Uppsala, Sweden) and 20 U T4 polynucleotide kinase (Pharmacia Biotech) in a volume of 40 μl. Following incubation at 37 C for 30 min, reactions were diluted to 100 μl with H2O and heated at 90 C for 2 min.
IGF-1 Peptides: include IGF-1 LR3 and IGF-1e (also known as MGF or Mechano Growth Factor). IGF-1 is responsible for many of the positive effects of GH on fat loss and muscle building therefore they offer a good addition, especially if your goal is to build muscle, as they are both responsible for creating new muscle cells which can hypertrophy (get bigger) through weight training.
Although growth hormone and growth hormone releasing hormones are classified as prescription drugs, there is a safe and legal way to increase your levels of hGH production. There are a range of growth hormone supplements designed to boost hGH production within normal limits. For more information, please refer to our “Natural Growth Hormone Supplements Guide”.
People who are serious about losing weight or improving physical performance may choose to use some of the controversial peptides. They are generally sold for research purposes, but many injectable forms of peptides have been used by athletes to increase the production of their body’s HGH to achieve increased lean body mass, decreased body fat, and improved recovery time after workouts. Peptides used for these purposes include:
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.
The most common goal of people in the health and fitness world is to lose weight. Not only do hundreds of millions of people go on diets to try and lose weight every year, but they want to lose weight as fast as possible. It’s no wonder the weight loss industry is a $20 billion industry, with the sales of books, diet drugs, and weight-loss surgeries fueling revenue as people try and lose unwanted weight once and for all.
These “protein chains”, are not just turned to by gym junkies for their muscle synthesising and fat burning properties. With peptides for injury recovery and repair, cognition, anti-aging, sleep, tanning, improving libido, or anxiety, to name a few, this growing market caters for everyone. Unfortunately, there has been a lot of stigma in the public eye due to media and press, shaming their use and clouding potential in debilitating chronic conditions such as obesity, muscle atrophy, osteoarthritis, dementia, Alzheimer’s or even recovery post stroke.

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.
After the commencement of the active treatment 88.9% of subjects experienced at least one AE, whereby the distribution was similar in the 5 AOD9604 groups and the placebo group. There was a higher incidence (48.4%) of nervous system disorders (mainly headache, 42.6%), gastrointestinal disorders (30.4%, mainly diarrhea unspecified, 9.0%) and infections and infestations (45.3%), than seen before the commencement of active treatment. The distribution of the intensity of AEs was similar across all treatment groups. The percentage of AEs that deemed to be possibly or probably related to the study medication was similar across all treatment groups, including placebo.
Obesity is the Western World’s most common health problem, and has reached epidemic proportions according to the World Health Organisation. More than 20% of the adult population in developed countries are obese – more than 300 million adults worldwide. In addition, more than 50% of adults in developed countries are overweight. Obesity is associated with other health-related problems such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes.
For example, studies have shown that people deficient in IGF-1 have an increased chance of dying from a heart attack. This is because IGF-1 prevents the death of heart cells and offers protection to heart cells when the cells are stressed, such as during a heart attack or long amount of time without oxygen. IGF-1 has a similar protective effect on brain cells.
Hey Elvia, do you think that using DAC for short periods of time at your proposed dose is still effective for fat loss? Say for four weeks at 4mg a week? I know peptides need to be used for awhile before effect can be seen. I was thinking about doing 4mg a week for 4 weeks with Injectable l-carnitine for my last 4 weeks before summer haha. In your experience is it worth it to spend the money on the DAC for such a short period?
Resting plasma concentrations of mature BNP and Nt‐proBNP were 14±3 pg/mL and 42±9 pg/mL before gastric bypass surgery and increased to 32±5 pg/mL and 107±20 pg/mL (increased by 50% and 31%), respectively (P=0.0009 and 0.0001) after the surgery. Circulating BNP and Nt‐proBNP concentrations during saline infusion were also higher after surgery compared with before surgery (Figures 2A and 2B; P<0.0001). The saline infusion itself was not associated with an increase in BNP or Nt‐proBNP levels at either visit (P=0.65 and 0.60, respectively).
Growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP) 2 is a type of peptide therapeutic that mimics the effects of ghrelin, the “hunger hormone”. Ghrelin is a hormone that helps regulate appetite as well as energy distribution and rate of use, or metabolism. In the 1980’s, ghrelin was discovered to be the body’s natural ligand (or binding molecule) of the GHRP receptor in the anterior pituitary. This was a significant discovery, as it highlighted the role of ghrelin in hGH secretion and growth regulation. Modern biotechnology has used this knowledge to develop peptides that can be administered to mimic ghrelin’s hGH stimulation, but in a more targeted fashion. GHRP 2 is one such peptide, stimulating hGH secretion by 7-15 times, increasing appetite and meal initiation, while also decreasing fat mass and cholesterol. GHRP 2 is ideal for patients who are hypercatabolic, due to critical illness, cancer, AIDS, etc. It should be noted that GHRP 2 can also increase levels of prolactin, aldosterone, and cortisol.
Comparing everything else is hard due to branding... don't want to start going into branding for obvious reasons. GH is incredible for fatloss but some brands add so much water it is hard to see the results to begin with. But due to the high serum and igf-1 from gh excellent results are to be had. Many factors come into play though which I am sure your well aware of. I think the ghrp's (2 and 6 for example) are excellent for fatloss if you keep up with the 4 daily injections in your research. Otherwise they are nowhere as effective due to the short peak times... so one must be organized and disciplined to get the full benefits.
Serum IGF-1 levels remained relatively constant over the dosing period with no apparent differences between treatment groups. Fasting plasma glucose and serum insulin levels remained unchanged throughout the treatment period. Furthermore, no changes in any of the OGTT parameters were observed from day 1 to day 7 of treatment. There were no study related clinically significant findings in the safety related laboratory tests, vital signs, or ECG measurements.
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.
Following amplification, PCR products were electrophoresed on 1.3% agarose gels and transferred onto Hybond N+ membranes (RPN 303B, Amersham Pharmacia Biotech) by Southern blotting in 0.4 M NaOH/1 M NaCl. The membranes were rinsed for 5 min in 0.5 M Tris-HCl (pH 7.5)/1 M NaCl and then in 0.3 M NaCl/30 mM sodium citrate, and air dried. Membranes were apposed directly to a phosphor imager screen for 18 h, and scanned using a Storm PhosphorImager and data quantitated using MCID software (Imaging Research, Inc., St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada). The β3-AR product bands were normalized against the β-actin control, averaged, and RNA isolated from treated animals was expressed against control animals.
First, when buying them, peptides are stored in the refrigerator. It is necessary to wash your hands before administering every preparation. Peptides are mixed with sterilized water. After taking 2 to 1ml sterilized water with a syringe, you should let it run down the wall of the peptide vial. Let it rest for ten minutes then mix gently. It is important not to stir the solution.
Improved glucose metabolism after RYGB and sleeve gastrectomy involves several mechanisms: early increased hepatic insulin sensitivity, resulting from reduced liver fat content in response to the postoperative caloric restriction, improved beta-cell function mediated by exaggerated postprandial GLP-1 secretion; as demonstrated by relapse of impaired glucose tolerance in studies blocking the GLP-1 receptor by exendin 9–39, and later after major weight loss increased peripheral insulin sensitivity. Gut hormone secretion changes towards a more anorectic profile and is likely important for less caloric intake and weight loss.
I have been using sermorelin (bioidentical growth hormone releasing hormone) for 2 months now to help heal a nasty right quad tendon rupture suffered the end of December. I’m 52 years old with 7% bodyfat and am a lifetime strength trainer and former high level bike racer. 2 months ago, in spite of months of religious rehab, I couldn’t do a single right leg bench stepup. Yesterday I was doing 20lb DB’s for repeated sets of 15. I get complete blood panels every 6 months, and my last labs in May showed my IGF-1 levels off the reference range low. I get my next bloods in a couple of weeks. I was initially afraid to try this hormone due to the cancer implications, and I didn’t need it to be lean and fit, but I was desperate and for my injury recovery, and it has made a significant difference. Plus, I believed supplementing the releasing hormone vs, IGF-1 limits the possibility of increasing the levels too much, as well as causing a negative feedback loop. By the way, I also tried TB-500 previous to the sermorelin, and it seemed to make some other achy joints in the gym go away, but didn’t seem to help the quad injury.
From the standpoint of protein synthesis and muscle repair, IGF-1 injections have also been shown to enhance the anticatabolic effects of insulin and to increase the protein synthesis normally induced by growth hormone. This is because, like insulin, IGF-1 encourages amino acid uptake into muscle cells, stimulates peripheral tissue uptake of glucose (which lowers blood glucose levels), and suppresses liver glucose production. That last fact is important and is actually why IGF-1 is even being considered as a diabetes-prevention drug. Insulin resistance can cause the liver to produce excess glucose, which then causes even more insulin insensitivity and can eventually result in type II diabetes, and IGF-1 can decrease the need for this type excessive insulin release.
The secret to health and wellness has been revealed. Recent scientific developments and studies have confirmed that the use of peptide supplements under the careful supervision of hormone doctors, will help to deliver your body to a state of youthful proportion and function. Through peptide supplementation, you enable the body to regenerate, enhance and perform to its optimal level.
