Your level of physical activity also affects IGF-1, and heavy weight training for your legs is a particularly potent way to increase it. Some studies suggest that the effects of the popular anti-aging supplement DHEA actually arise due to this same type of increase in IGF-1 in the body that occurs with with weight training (so you choose: heavy barbell squats or a bottle of DHEA from the drugstore).
The test substance was either administered intravenously (studies METAOD001 and METAOD002) or as a capsule/tablet. The hexadecapeptide AOD9604 was produced under cGMP conditions by PolyPeptide Laboratories (Torrance, CA, USA). For studies 1 and 2, the product was supplied in a lyophilized form and reconstituted before usage with the designated volume of sterile water for intravenous injection. The capsules/tablets were manufactured using a common excipient mix (Capsules: Mannitol, PEG3350 (in studies METAOD003, METAOD004 and METAOD005)); or Tablets: L-Arginine Free Base, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Fumed silica, Magnesium Stearate (in study METAOD006)).
EPO: Erythropoietin (EPO) is a naturally occurring hormone found in the blood, but media usually refer to the artificial peptide (recombinant EPO). EPO stimulates production of red blood cells to improve oxygen transfer and boost endurance or recovery from anaerobic exercise. EPO is also believed to increase the risk of adverse health effects, but this has mainly been based on athletes’ anecdotal evidence and clinical studies in non-sports patients with other medical conditions. While using recombinant EPO is prohibited both in and out of competition under WADA’s Prohibited List, “natural” boosting of EPO through high altitude training is allowed.
Tβ4 has been used at our clinic with a great deal of success in patients suffering from Lyme disease or other infectious and/or inflammatory conditions. Tβ4 is very well tolerated and has not been found to cause any significant side effects. It can be taken on its own or in conjunction with an existing therapy, making it a versatile and valuable drug.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease that results from articular cartilage loss induced by complex interactions of genetic, metabolic, biochemical, and biomechanical factors with secondary components of inflammation [1]. OA is the most common arthritis and a major medical problem in people aged 65 years and older [2]. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy, exercises, corticosteroids, and hyaluronic acid injections have all been used for the conservative treatment of OA. The role of NSAIDs in OA management is controversial because of its adverse side effects, as well as side effects on the cartilage [3].

The ACMS recommended that Growth Hormone Releasing Hormones (GHRHs), Growth Hormone Secretagogues (GHSs), Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides (GHRPs) as well as new individual substance entries for CJC-1295, ipamorelin, pralmorelin (Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2), Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-6, hexarelin and AOD-9604 be included in Schedule 4.
All peptide injections are compounded under strict sterile conditions according to USP 797 Standards. We use peptides obtained from a GMP certified manufacturer which are all over 99% pure and endotoxin tested and proven to be safe. We also perform sterility tests on all peptide preparations supplied which ensures the quality and safety of our products.
When people are on a mission to lose weight one of the first things they do is head to their treadmill and remove all of the clothing they’ve been storing on it while it wasn’t in use, to start a cardio work out. Or, maybe you’ll go out for a bike ride or jog around town.  Cardio exercise burns the most calories, which helps you create a calorie deficit that you need for weight loss. But people generally over estimate how many calories they’re actually burning through exercise and end up over eating because they assume they’ve burned the calories.
The banned "peptide" believed to have been injected into numerous Australian professional athletes can be bought in under 30 seconds online. GHRP-6, the growth hormone-releasing peptide that features in the Australian Crime Commission's report into organised crime and drugs in sport released this morning, was identified -- alongside other so-called performance and image enhancing drugs (PIEDs) -- as a dubious supplement threatening to cast a pall over the country's professional codes. Although unproven, GHRP-6 purportedly helps the body repair damaged tissue and can stimulate human growth hormones to improve athletic performance. It can be used in conjunction with anabolic steroids to promote muscle gain. Peptides are classified as a prohibited substance on the World Anti-Doping Agency prohibited list and were banned for use both in and out of competition in 2008. The ACC report said most peptides are also:
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.

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 found that BNP and Nt‐proBNP concentrations were also substantially higher after weight loss surgery, both before and after saline infusion. We did not observe an acute rise in BNP or Nt‐proBNP in the first 3 hours after the saline infusion. The longer half‐lives of BNP and Nt‐proBNP may be one explanation, as these peptides may take longer to peak.16 However, we have noted a similar lack of increase after up to 8 hours of observation.17 Thus, we expect that the changes in BNP associated with surgery are likely to be substantially larger than any change induced by saline, even over longer periods of observation.
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
In our study, the rapid recovery from lameness (11 days) in the group that received AOD9604 and HA injection suggests that an early anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effect could be induced before the tissue repair observed at the end of the treatment period (35 days). This result may be explained by the pain-relieving effects of GH [30]. The intra-articular injection to the human knee using ultrasound guidance notably enhances the accuracy compared with injection using anatomical guidance [31–33]. Until recently, intra-articular injections to the rabbit knee using ultrasound guidance have rarely been reported [34]. In our study, intra-articular injections were performed using ultrasound guidance to identify the correct trajectory for needle placement in the knee joint, as the rabbit knee joint is smaller than that of humans.
When it comes to losing weight, no matter how little amount, it’s an uphill struggle…all the way! Using peptides correctly will provide surprisingly good results if the user can also put in some effort from the very start. Just by reducing your food and calorie drinks along with some daily exercise will soon reward you with a noticeable decrease in weight and fat loss.
You’ve already learned that sufficient protein intake (above 0.5g/lb of body weight) can assist with adequate IGF-1 and growth hormone production. Whey protein provides your body with a complete profile of necessary amino acids, including leucine. Leucine is an amino acid that promotes greater muscle protein synthesis and assists the body while gaining lean muscle mass and losing fat tissue simultaneously.
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.

The T α 1 peptide can be administered via subcutaneous injection or as a transdermal cream. T α 1 has been found to be very safe, and there have not been any documented side effects associated with its administration. It is approved in more than 37 countries for the treatment of hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and as an adjunct to chemotherapy and various vaccines.
Peptide therapy encompasses numerous different drugs with varied effects, ranging from immune modulation and tissue repair to fat loss and muscle building. Our center has seen very positive results in patients with CFS, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Lyme disease, and fibromyalgia, among other conditions. Ask your physician or speak to a patient representative at (877) 508-1177 to find out if peptide therapy is right for you.

Mod GRF 1-29 and CJC-1295 are still being researched. As such, they are not yet medically utilized or approved. Though some firm protocols for the use of these peptides have been developed, the dosage of the compound is not yet medically confirmed. In a study conducted by researchers on 21 to 61 year-old subjects, it was found that depending on the dose, the concentrations of the growth hormone increased to up to 10 times for at least 6 days. Also, the concentration of IGF-1 increased to up to 3 times for 9 to 11 days.
If there was a magic pill that could help improve digestion and gut health, erase wrinkles, ease joint pain and give you healthy, thick hair and nails, I would buy it by the truckload. After all, while boosting my overall health is a priority, having shinier hair and minimal crow’s feet is a major bonus. Although there’s no such magic pill, there is a supplement that promises these results and more—collagen peptides.

But let’s say you’ve already implemented the IGF-1 boosting strategies of adequate calories, sufficient protein, weight training, plenty of sleep, smart supplementation, mineral intake and alcohol moderation. Should you take the next step, wander into an anti-aging clinic, find an online pharmacy, lurk in the depths of bodybuilding forums, and begin IGF-1 injections?
SARMs are selective androgen receptor modulators. Androgens are naturally occurring hormones—such as testosterone—that regulate the development and maintenance of male sex characteristics. SARMs provide the benefits of anabolic steroids (i.e., increased muscle mass/strength, fat loss, increased bone density, increased libido) without the quantity and/or severity of unwanted effects. SARMs are not toxic to the liver, separating them from most oral steroids and making them an attractive treatment option to those looking to benefit from anabolic steroid drugs.

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.
To put this into simple terms, collagen protein promotes fullness and keeps our body feeling satisfied after a meal. If we feel more full for a longer time after eating, we are less likely to overeat at the next meal. This goes hand in hand with fighting off pesky cravings. We know how difficult it can be to fight cravings, such as those for salty, oily or fatty foods. And not to mention sugary foods, which our brain can actually get addicted to. Including collagen into your daily diet can help in the battle against cravings and weight loss by keeping you full and satisfied.
But IGF-1 injections may soon be a thing of the past. Future use of IGF-1 will no doubt involve gene therapy, which directly targets genes that produce IGF-1 in muscle, usually by attaching specific gene activators to an inactive virus or vector that then enters into muscle cells. Studies in mice show that a procedure like this can cause  a 15% increase in muscle mass, along with a 14% increase in strength. Gene therapy in old mice has been shown to cause to a 27% increase in strength, along with regeneration of aging muscle. In one mouse study, the IGF-1 gene was placed in the animals’ glutes and calves, which resulted in up to a 115% increase in muscle-cross-sectional area.

No growth hormone, or any supplement for that matter, is never going to equate to the same exact results for every user. So, what you experience, is not the same as the next user, and vice-versa. Further, the increase in results and how quickly you will see these results are going to differ for each user. So, make sure you understand this prior to start your dosage, to ensure you are not disappointed if you do not see each one of these benefits, on the very first day that you begin using the Ipamorelin. Also consider the fact that if you use it after food, or with a meal, results will improve. So, proper timing and proper diet and exercise regimen can greatly enhance the results you are going to realize when you are using Ipamorelin as well.

Three of the submissions did not support the proposal highlighting the impact the change in scheduling would have on product currently on the market, industry, pharmacists and consumers. Two submissions noted that there has not been a history of concern with this combination of substances. One submission, referring to the NEJM article, believed that a lack of information about the study means that it cannot be relied upon as there is not a meaningful assessment of the results.

In June 2011 the Advisory Committee on Medicines Scheduling was referred a proposal by the delegate to consider up-scheduling of five (5) then unscheduled substances contained in cold and cough preparations into Schedule 2. One of these substances was phenylephrine and many public submissions received rejected this proposal on the grounds of the paracetamol/phenylephrine exemptions in the Schedule 2 entry. The committee made similar comments and the delegate agreed that the current exempt from scheduling status of phenylephrine was appropriate.
It is also important to note that whether you are a long-time user or a first-time user of Ipamorelin, your body is going to react differently to that of the next user. Like the benefits you will experience, the side effects you are going to experience will occur differently, and at different dosage levels. So, it truly is a trial and error period you are going to go through with a test run of Ipamorelin for new users. You have to find what works for you, how your body will react, and what potential side effects are lingering ahead, in order for you to achieve the greatest results, and eventually find the proper dosage and cycle level, which is going to work the best for your body and system.

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 the multiple dose and long term studies, AOD9604 was well tolerated over the entire dose range. In none of the studies did any drug-related withdrawals or drug-related serious AEs occur. No drug related clinically significant AEs, or changes of clinical significance in vital signs, safety laboratory tests or ECGs were detected during the studies. There were no observable trends in the incidence of AEs between the 0.25 mg, 0.5 mg, 1 mg, 9 mg and 27 mg AOD9604 and placebo treatment groups. The highest dose administration (54 mg), however, was associated with an increased incidence of GI-related AEs.


An Australian-owned obesity drug, developed by Melbourne-based biotechnology company Metabolic Pharmaceuticals Limited, is set to enter final human trials next year after successfully completing a Phase 2b human trial which proved that the drug induces weight loss and is very well tolerated with no evidence of the side effects commonly experienced with existing obesity drugs.

Without side effects with an appropriate assay, this peptide contributes to fat loss and muscle gain. CJC-1295 DAC could interest those wishing to rarely perform injections due to a stable rate over time rather than intermittent dosages, that provides the maximum necessary for optimal effect. Its use combined with a GHRP is interesting but not as much as with MOD-GRF whose peaks of free GHRH peptides would be coordinated with the GHRP associated.

•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).

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.
