Another benefit of collagen supplementation to your workout routine? Collagen contains high amounts of the amino acid arginine, which changes into nitric oxide to help our blood vessels relax and promote healthy circulation. Additionally, arginine has been found to help promote total strength and recovery in adult males (4). Adding collagen into your daily diet can help keep your bones strong, helping you to stay active and healthy.

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.
MGF stands for mechano growth factor—a peptide derived from insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), which plays a large role in childhood development and continues to have anabolic effects throughout adulthood. MGF has the ability to encourage repair and growth of wasted tissue through the activation of muscle stem cells, thereby increasing the synthesis of proteins necessary for tissue growth. This peptide is ideal of anyone suffering from muscle loss, either due to old age or a particular condition (i.e., HIV, cancer, etc.)
CJC-1295 increases the production of growth hormone as well as IGF-1 – which has anabolic effects in adults. However, it does not increase the levels of prolactin – high levels of which can create impotence and mental health problems in men. By increasing these two hormones, it enhances protein production in the body, which in turn, boosts muscle mass. It also induces lipolysis – the breakdown of fat tissue, boosts recovery from injuries, increases bone density, and also reduces aging factors like skin wrinkles. It can also stimulate cell growth, due to which it can be used to treat withered tissue or organs.
Ghrelin and GH secretagogues, including GH-releasing peptide (GHRP)-6, stimulate food intake and adiposity. Because insulin modulates the hypothalamic response to GH secretagogues and acts synergistically with ghrelin on lipogenesis in vitro, we analyzed whether insulin plays a role in the metabolic effects of GHRP-6 in vivo. Streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats received saline, GHRP-6, insulin, or insulin plus GHRP-6 once daily for 8 wk. Rats receiving saline suffered hyperglycemia, hyperphagia, polydipsia, and weight loss. Insulin, but not GHRP-6, improved these parameters (P < 0.001 for all), as well as the diabetes-induced increase in hypothalamic mRNA levels of neuropeptide Y and agouti-related peptide and decrease in proopiomelanocortin. Cocaine amphetamine-related transcript mRNA levels were also reduced in diabetic rats, with GHRP-6 inducing a further decrease (P < 0.03) and insulin an increase. Diabetic rats receiving insulin plus GHRP-6 gained more weight and had increased epididymal fat mass and serum leptin levels compared with all other groups (P < 0.001). In epididymal adipose tissue, diabetic rats injected with saline had smaller adipocytes (P < 0.001), decreased fatty acid synthase (FAS; P < 0.001), and glucose transporter-4 (P < 0.001) and increased hormone sensitive lipase (P < 0.001) and proliferator-activated receptor-gamma mRNA levels (P < 0.01). Insulin normalized these parameters to control values. GHRP-6 treatment increased FAS and glucose transporter-4 gene expression and potentiated insulin's effect on epididymal fat mass, adipocyte size (P < 0.001), FAS (P < 0.001), and glucose transporter-4 (P < 0.05). In conclusion, GHRP-6 and insulin exert an additive effect on weight gain and visceral fat mass accrual in diabetic rats, indicating that some of GHRP-6's metabolic effects depend on the insulin/glucose status.
If muscle gain is not what you’re looking to gain, then the best place to start is by getting your hands on some CJC-DAC and administer at 2-5mg per week. CJC-1295 with or without DAC is suitable. An equally effective alternative is GW501516. Peptide Clinics Australia recommend Oxytocin for weight loss highly and they’ve had amazing results from patients that have been prescribed this.
Diets on point! 6 600 calorie meals totaling 200-300g protein, 50-150g carbs and almost NO fat. I do get a little fat in my diet from flax, trail mix and what not but all my food is natural, whole and as close to organic as I can get.. TONS of raw veggies. NO cardio atm, Ive got some bad injuries and issues developed from my last cycle so I take it pretty easy LOL. Maybe an hour on the bicycle 1-2x/wk.. Tough job tho so at work 8hrs a day working on diesel pile hammers keeps my heart rate pretty high all day
To get the best results from your fat loss program and the highest fat loss amount from CJC 1295 Ipamorelin peptide supplementation, it is important to follow a diet that is rich in protein, low in carbs, moderate in the health fats while being physically active and doing cardio exercise as often as you can. Also, you need to keep your hormone levels properly balanced in order to boost your metabolism.

Obesity affects more than one‐third of US adults1 and is a major contributor to cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.2, 3 A significant proportion of the cardiovascular risk in obese people is attributed to the development of hypertension,4, 5 which predisposes them to increased risk of atrial fibrillation, coronary heart disease, and stroke.6 Abnormal salt handling is thought to be one of the mechanisms underlying obesity‐related hypertension.7, 8
Investigators at Monash University discovered that the fat-reducing effects of GH appear to be controlled by a small region near one end of the GH molecule. This region, which consists of amino acids 177-191, is less than 10% of the total size of the GH molecule and appears to have no effect on growth or insulin resistance. It works by mimicking the way natural Growth Hormone regulates fat metabolism but without the adverse effects on blood sugar or growth that is seen with unmodified Growth Hormone.
In vitro studies by Metabolic Collaborators showed that AOD9604 enhances the differentiation of adipose mesenchymal stem cells into bone, promotes proteoglycan and collagen production in isolated bovine chondrocytes, and promotes differentiation of myoblasts into C2C12 cells. These effects induced by AOD9604 are similar to those required for the repair of bone, cartilage, and muscle, all of which are affected in OA. To the best of our knowledge, no study has compared the effects of GH and HA intra-articular injections on OA. A previous study showed the effects of intra-articular GH injection on articulophyseal cartilage regeneration in the knees of rabbits [9]. Our study showed that the groups that received AOD9604 or HA injection had better outcomes in terms of morphological and histolopathological findings, as well as a lowered duration of lameness than the group that received saline injections, although there are no significant differences between the two groups. In addition, our study revealed that the groups that received combined injections of AOD9604 and HA showed better outcomes than the groups that received AOD9604 or HA alone. The apparently synergistic effect of combined injections is thought to indicate that intra-articular injection of HA may have a chondrocyte-protective role, and the AOD9604 could help recapitulate the developmental cascades which regrows a segment of the articular cartilage in a joint. Our results are consistent with those of a previous study [8] that combined the injection of HA with recombinant human GH and found that the combination is more effective than HA injection alone.
The lateral and medial condyles of the femur and tibia were fixed with 10% neutral buffered formalin and decalcified with 20% ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). Calcified condyles were embedded in paraffin, and standard frontal sections of 5 μm were prepared and stained with haematoxylin and eosin in the cartilage of the lateral part of the femoral condyle, according to gross morphological observations [14]. If the staining was not adequate, the specimen was cut at the next cartilage surface. Cartilage degradation features were analyzed using the scoring system modified by Mankin et al. [14]. Histopathological evidence of cartilage degeneration was evaluated by structural scoring (0, normal; 1, surface irregularities; 2, pannus and surface irregularities; 3, clefts to transitional zones; 4, clefts to radial zones; 5, clefts to calcified zones; and 6, complete disorganization) and cell status (0, normal; 1, diffuse hypercellularity; 2, cloning; and 3, hypocellularity) of the articular cartilage. Total score ranged from 0 (normal) to 9 (complete disorganization and hypocellularity of the articular cartilage). All sections were graded by two independent pathologists who did not have any information about the injection solutions.
I can't believe we as Aussies are the 1st to point the finger of other countries on drug cheats, as soon as its in our own backyard and one of our afl footy teams, we seem to downplay the seriousness of drugs in sport, its crazy, and to think they didnt know what was being injected, doh. my favorite is the Shane Warne Diuretics that his mum gave him, lol, 12 month ban, Essendon minimum 2 year ban.....has to be.

Yes, Ipamorelin can help you lose weight. But, if you are not exercising, and aren’t eating well, it can only do so much. There is no magical supplement which will undo laziness and a horrible diet – keep this in mind. When using it for fat loss, make sure you are exercising. Doing so will naturally increase weight loss results, as you are going to burn more calories, along with the caloric deficit you are already on, for greater results. Further, your diet matters. If you are eating 5000 calories of junk per day, no supplement will help you lose weight – no matter how potent it claims to be!
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.

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).

Recent advances in the field of regenerative medicine, such as the use of platelet-rich plasma and stem cell injections, are emerging as the preferred options for treating OA. This is in part because patients do not desire only temporary alleviation of symptoms. Rather, patients also seek permanent correction and repair of the underlying biology for regenerating the damaged tissue in order to permanently alleviate their symptoms [4]. The aforementioned treatment options have been used in several areas of medicine for delivering growth factors to optimize healing.
However, it cannot be legally imported without a special permit under the strict Special Access Scheme, which requires a doctor to apply to the TGA for permission to treat a particular patient with the drug, including describing the specific clinical need. ''There have been no applications under the SAS for AOD-9604,'' the TGA spokeswoman confirmed on Thursday.
In addition, scientists have observed that those who supplemented with IGF-1 experienced a preponderance of new brain cell growth and new muscle mass and new studies confirmed this to be true, even among individuals with both brain damage and muscle-wasting sarcopenia. Furthermore, research studies have found IGF-1 to increase feelings of youthfulness, improve well-being, and even to alleviate depression.
Ipamorelin, like other growth hormone peptides, is used to increase production of your own growth hormone levels. Growth hormone levels are at their peak in our twenties, and then gradually decrease with age. There are a few different peptides including Sermorelin, GHRP2, GHRP6, and Ipamorelin. These peptides are listed in order of how recently they have been developed, with Ipamorelin being the newest and most commonly recommended.

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.
The mean time (± SD) taken for recovery of normal ambulation was 25±2 days in Group 1, 15±3 days in Group 2, 16±2 days in Group 3, and 11±4 days in Group 4. The lameness period in Group 4 was significantly shorter than those in Groups 1, 2, and 3 (p<0.05). The lameness period in Group 1 was significantly longer than those in Groups 2 and 3 (p<0.05). However, there were no differences in the mean lameness period between Groups 2 and 3 (Figure 6).
It's really tough to tell. It has properties that suggest it might be, but the evidence simply doesn't exist to make any definitive claims. AOD9604 was designed as a modified fragment of growth hormone. The original intention was to create a drug that has the effect on adipose (fat) cells of growth hormone, without the other effects. This sort of drug development is littered with failures, because replicating a sequence of amino acids is not the same as replicating a protein and its effects. It's not just the chemical composition of a protein that determines how it interacts with other molecules (especially endocrine receptors, like those that growth hormone acts on), but also how that protein folds. There's only really one way to tell what your compound actually does, and that's to try it out.
Actually, it's under S0 because it is not approved for human use by any regulating authority anywhere. The S2 category is the one relating to mimicking effects of other compounds or GH. But you were right, the OP is fundamentally incorrect. The real reasons that Dank chose this compound to administer to Essendon players is still a mystery but we can be certain it wasn't paid for or administered for the fun of it.
The simple science of amino acids linked together, via peptide bonds, brings to life this now common word – “Peptides”. Used for a variety of health, fitness and anti ageing concerns, Peptides can help in many ways to promote fat loss, build lean muscle, assist with injury recovery, increase agility, and many other anti ageing benefits. Peptides are amino acid chains that act as messengers in the cellular world by telling your cells what to do. One of the world’s best kept secrets for optimal health is Human Growth Hormone (HGH). HGH is so instrumentally important that its decline as we age is directly related to our health and quality of life. Modern medicine is now recognising its decrease as a clinical syndrome called “Growth Hormone Deficiency Syndrome”. By stimulating your Growth Hormone levels back to a level that is clinically predicted for your age will allow your body to perform at its peak which allows you to feel youthful and rejuvenated.
Growth Hormone (GH) and IGF-1 are naturally occurring hormones in the human body responsible for many enviable aesthetic traits such as muscle mass, leanness and a firm/even skin tone. As people age, levels of growth hormone rapidly decline and this is one of the main reasons humans put on weight, lose muscle mass and develop sagging/uneven skin. It's no surprise then that synthetic Human Growth Hormone is a sought after product for anti-aging by persons looking to remain youthful, bodybuilders looking to put on muscle mass and people in general who are looking to "tone up" or lose stubborn belly fat.
Just as you could eat more calories than you think if you aren’t keeping track, you might miss some positive results of your efforts if you aren’t tracking your progress. Weigh yourself weekly. Take body measurements of your waist, legs, chest, and arms every other week. Measure your body fat percentage. Take photos of yourself once a month. Sometimes the scale won’t show results from week to week, but if you have all of the other methods of tracking in place, you’ll be able to see your efforts are being rewarded.
Application would result in all current OTC paracetamol/ phenylephrine products being up-scheduled to S3. Applicant’s justification for changing current combination products from exempt or S2 to S3 is on theoretical basis only, and no evidence provided of clinical risk. Pharmacokinetic study found that co-administration of paracetamol with phenylephrine increased plasma phenylephrine levels - applicant says this has potential for cardiac safety risk in susceptible patients.
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.

If muscle gain is not what you’re looking to gain, then the best place to start is by getting your hands on some CJC-DAC and administer at 2-5mg per week. CJC-1295 with or without DAC is suitable. An equally effective alternative is GW501516. Peptide Clinics Australia recommend Oxytocin for weight loss highly and they’ve had amazing results from patients that have been prescribed this.

Strengths of our study include the serial physiologic assessments before and after bariatric surgery. The gastric bypass procedure ensured a large degree of weight loss (≈27% mean change in BMI), while the administration of normal saline provided an acute stimulus for eliciting acute natriuretic peptide responses. Thus, we were able to compare the relative effects of weight loss and saline infusion, with each individual serving as his or her own control. This study design minimizes confounding from sources of natriuretic peptide variation that might correlate with BMI. We performed the post‐surgical assessment 6 months after surgery to ensure that acute hemodynamic changes from surgery had resolved and patients had attained most of their expected weight loss. Mitral annular early diastolic (e′) velocity at the lateral annulus has been accepted as an index of diastolic function24, 25 and we had significant improvement in e′ suggesting improvement in myocardial relaxation. Our echocardiographic findings are in accordance with the recently published meta‐analysis demonstrating benefits of bariatric surgery on diastolic function.26
When combined with the other IGF-1 and growth hormone boosting strategies you’ve just discovered – such as eating adequate calories, heavy weight training, 7-9 hours of sleep per 24 hour cycle, adequate mineral intake and moderation of alcohol intake – these additional strategies will ensure you get all the anabolic effects of IGF-1 and growth hormone without having to resort to needles, syringes, prescriptions, online pharmacies and potentially dangerous self-experimentation.
The company which developed it, Metabolic Pharmaceuticals, did have a small early study done which showed a small amount of fat loss at 1 mg per day but not really any other dosing. Measured effect was less at higher doses. In total the company did at least six studies. According to the lead researcher of five of the studies, Dr Gary Wittert, results were uniformly negative.
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.

Ipamorelin is a man-made peptide that is part of the growth hormone family. Rated as one of the safest in the peptide industry, it has strong growth hormone releasing properties. From this, it is a huge winner with athletes and bodybuilders. This is because it builds muscle and keeps weight down quickly. It works by sending signals to the pituitary gland at the base of the brain and adjusts and controls various body functions through the endocrine system. It binds certain receptors inside cells. This allows cells to respond and change, encouraging growth and regulation of hormones. Ipamorelin can help with:


"A doctor is much more likely to prescribe a drug that addresses the underlying metabolic problem," Dr Belyea said. In addition, all of the drugs currently on the market have noticeable side-effects ranging from mood changes to unpleasant effects on the digestive system. The FDA withdrew fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine (Redux), from the market in 1997 after the drugs were linked to heart valve abnormalities.


CJC1295 is a 30 amino acid peptide, which primarily functions as a growth hormone releasing hormone analogue (mimicking the effect of GHRH). It was initially invented to treat deep fat deposits in people, because it is known that having an increase in our own growth hormone levels will target this. It stimulates production of our own growth hormone from the pituitary gland.
Not every peptide will suite every individual and it may take some experimenting to get the right peptide and dose. Our recent article explains more about who peptides will work for. So what is the best peptide for fat loss and is there any one type that will almost guarantee some success? The answer is NO! Everyone is different and to repeat what was said above, experimenting is vital for success.
The DAC technology in the CJC-1295 enables the compound to bind itself covalently with any circulating albumin, after it has been administered through a subcutaneous injection. However, the reason why the half-life could be extended from a few minutes to several days is more profound. The reactive group in the CJC-1295 binds to a peptide through bioconjugation. The peptide then finds a neucleophilic unit within the blood and reacts with it in order to create a firmer bond.
Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used in the management of mild to moderate pain and inflammation in conditions such as dysmenorrhoea, headache including migraine, post-operative pain, dental pain, musculoskeletal and joint disorders such as ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis including juvenile idiopathic arthritis, peri-articular disorders such as bursitis and tenosynovitis, and soft tissue disorders such as sprains and strains. It is also used to reduce fever.
Male New Zealand white rabbits (n=32; aged 12 weeks) were used in the experiments. Animals were housed in separate metal cages at a temperature of 23°C±2°C and relative humidity of 45%±10%. The animals were allowed free access to tap water and were fed a commercial rabbit diet. Animal experiments were performed in accordance with internationally accredited guidelines and approved by laboratory’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee.
Solcoseryl: Derived from calves’ blood and is believed to speed up healing of damaged or injured tissues, solcoseryl is currently used in humans as eye gel for corneal ulcers, a jelly/ointment for gangrene and bedsores, burns and wound healing, and inflammation of gums, lips and mouth ulcers. No major adverse effects been reported. Solcoseryl is not specifically banned under WADA as a substance but can potentially be banned as a method depending on how the substance is administered and how much is used.
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.
There were no changes in laboratory parameters or vital signs in any treatment group. There were no clinically significant abnormalities in vital signs, safety tests, or ECGs during the studies. At no time were statistically significant differences in IGF-1 levels among the treatment groups and placebo detected. The overall mean changes in IGF-1 were 1.76 nmol/L and 1.24 nmol/L after 12 and 24 weeks of treatment, respectively. There were no statistically significant differences between the treatment groups or placebo (P = 0.50844 after 12 weeks and P = 0.75754 after 24 weeks).

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).
Whilst not illegal to buy AOD9604 in Australia, AOD9604 does not have approval by the TGA, which means it is not allowed to be sold on the basis of it having any pharmaceutical or performance enhancing benefits. It has not been approved by any pharmaceutical authority worldwide, except for the previously mentioned "Generally Regarded As Safe" designation by the FDA. AOD9604 is currently classed by the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) as a non-approved substance, which means it is not legal for use by athletes in competition. WADA policy is to ban all substances that are suspected of being performance-enhancing, even in the absence of clinical proof (1,2).
Steve Coggan, Chatswood, Sydney, “I am 48 and been weightlifting for 20 years. I have used CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin on their own and together, and have to say that when combining them they work better and faster. I have been using them for the past year, with 2 rest times. The combination of CJC 1295 Ipamorelin, is proving fantastic all round. Not only am I increasing muscle, my weight is down, but my skin is looking great. Some of the bags under my eyes have more or less gone. My missus thinks I look 10 years younger! Also, it has helped in the recovery of an injury to my knee after a fall. I have to say it isn’t cheap, but the results are worth it. CJC 1295 Ipamorelin side effects were few, just some headaches at first. You need to use it with a good diet and fitness regime for best results. I will definitely be continuing with it!”
WT (n = 9) and β3-KO (n = 9) mice were used in this study. Animals were fasted 2 h before being individually placed in an indirect calorimeter. Calorimetry was performed as in previous studies (8). After baseline readings were taken, mice were injected with one of the following compounds: saline (control; n = 3); AOD9604 (2 mg/kg body weight; n = 3); or BRL37344 (250 μg/kg body weight; n = 3). Rates of energy expenditure, fat oxidation, and glucose oxidation were measured for an additional 30 min. The concentrations of AOD9604 and BRL37344 were determined as lowest concentration needed to give a maximal response in these mice (data not shown). Rates of energy expenditure and fat and glucose oxidation were plotted as a change from the average baseline values.
Ipamorelin is very similar to the growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRPs) GHRP 2 and GHRP 6 in that it mimics ghrelin (the hunger hormone) and targets a specific HGH pulse. However, unlike other GHRPs, this peptide doesn’t affect the release of cortisol, acetylcholine, prolactin and aldosterone thereby minimizing side effects experienced with other GH therapies, such as increased hunger. Because there are virtually no negative side effects, Ipamorelin can be prescribed more aggressively and more frequently than other therapies without the risk of elevated cortisol and acetylcholine blood plasma levels. This helps optimize HGH levels for a longer period of time, leading to more successful health outcomes.
Ibuprofen is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used in the management of mild to moderate pain and inflammation in conditions such as dysmenorrhoea, headache including migraine, post-operative pain, dental pain, musculoskeletal and joint disorders such as ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis including juvenile idiopathic arthritis, peri-articular disorders such as bursitis and tenosynovitis, and soft tissue disorders such as sprains and strains. It is also used to reduce fever.
The nature of the response to both hGH and AOD9604 is not clearly understood. We hypothesized that both molecules may influence the expression of the β3-adrenergic receptors (β3-ARs), the major lipolytic receptor in fat tissue. Both AOD9604 and hGH can increase β3-AR mRNA expression, as well as protein levels and function, in mouse and human cell lines in vitro (11). This response was investigated at the level of RNA and protein expression and function. The results for each mode of analysis were consistent in that both hGH and AOD9604 acted in a dose- and time-dependent manner to modulate the β3-AR response.
Colostrum: The very early form of milk secreted late in pregnancy and in the first few days after birth, colostrum contains a complex mixture of nutrients, antibodies (to build immunity) and growth factors (to stimulate gut development) which are important to a newborn’s health and development, though its effects in adults are less clear. There’s little evidence that colostrum consumption (typically cow colostrum) improves the immune status of athletes. While not directly banned, colostrum could stimulate Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) secretion. IGF-1 is banned, but stimulation of its secretion by nutritional supplements is a grey area.

One of the important reasons we consume protein is that it helps to keep our bodies full. While many people use protein powders for this purpose, a lot of protein powders are filled with fillers or unnatural additives. Collagen protein, on the other hand, is a clean protein - in its pure form, it has no additives or sweeteners - that can help keep you full and promote satiety. Several studies have focused on the benefits of consuming collagen in helping people who are trying to lose weight. In a study assessing hunger hormones in 10 obese patients and 12 patients of normal weight, researchers found that the intake of gelatin (a substance derived from collagen itself) actually increased the satiety hormone, which means the subjects were more likely to adhere to their weight loss diets(1). If you could maintain satiety longer, you may be on the road to effective weight loss simply by reducing your own hunger.
The amazing effects of HCG on the hypothalamus were discovered by Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons in 1954, who observed that malnourished women tend to give birth to healthy babies with normal birth weights. Dr. Simeons concluded that women are able to do this because the HCG hormone that their bodies naturally produced during pregnancy helped their bodies to metabolise subcutaneous fat. hCG released by the embryo also helps women with weight redistribution (helps prevent uneven deposits of weight on thighs, abdomen, hips etc) and therefore women concerned with hormonal weight gain are ideal candidates for this diet.

cDNAs were synthesized by reverse transcription (RT) of 1.0 μg of each total RNA using oligo (dT)15 as a primer. The RNA in a volume of 7.7 μl H2O was heated to 70 C for 5 min then placed on ice for 2 min before the addition of a reaction mix containing 1× RT buffer (Promega Corp., Madison, WI), 1 mM deoxynucleotide triphosphates (dNTPs), 5 mM MgCl2, 18 U Rnasin (Promega Corp.), 20 U avian myeloblastosis virus RT (Promega Corp.), and 50 μg ml−1 oligo(dT)15 in a volume of 12.5 μl. Following a brief centrifugation, the reactions were incubated at 42 C for 45 min and then 95 C for 5 min. The completed RT reactions were stored at −20 C and used for PCR without further treatment.
For GH to exhibit its fat burning effects, insulin must NOT be present. Insulin release in the body is caused mainly by consuming carbohydrates, although all types of macronutrients (carbs, fat and protein) still cause the release of insulin to some extent. Since HGH Frag works by causing the body to break down and release stored fat for use as energy, if you have recently consumed calories (food or beverage) your body will just use that for energy instead and little extra fat will be burnt. If however there is no food present for the body to use as energy, it will use the stored fat which the HGH Frag has caused to be released and you will notice reductions in body fat over the ensuing weeks.
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.
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."
