GHRP or Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2 belonging to a class of peptides which act to release GH from the pituitary and hypothalamus. It was discovered 20 years back and is similar to GHRP-6. It is a second generation peptide hormone which is mainly used to increase the levels of human growth hormone in your body. It comes in powder form which can be mixed with the appropriate solution and used as an injection in the muscles. It is usually used along with a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) like PEG-MGF. The common names of GHRP-2 are Pralmorelin and GHRP Kaken-100. GHRP-2 directly stimulates the hypothalamus to secrete GH.
How GHRP Works
GHRP-2 increases the production of growth hormone in your body. It stimulates the natural production of GH which may prove to be very useful for you. This, in turn, increases your appetite. If you are an off-season athlete it helps to promote your growth. It helps in fat loss and if you want to gain lean muscle weight then GHRP-2 might be the best option for you.
GHRP-2 stimulates the production of the hunger-increasing hormone-ghrelin in your stomach. This causes an increase in hunger levels in your body. GHRP-2 has numerous benefits as pointed below:
- Might be used for anti-aging plans
- Improves body metabolism
- Improves bone health
- Promotes healthy skin
- Makes immune system stronger
- Increase in collagen production
- Improves sleep
- Increase in appetite
- Increase in lean muscle mass
As your body ages, the growth hormone production also declines. Due to this, energy level also declines and it might take longer to heal injuries. It is mainly needed by athletes and bodybuilders to enhance their energy levels and increase their strength and metabolism. Growth hormone is very costly and GHRP in comparison is affordable so it is a very popular choice among masses.
Using GHRP-2 has its own benefits over GH as the former stimulates the hypothalamus to secrete GH in the body whereas sole use of GH is associated with many health risks.
GHRP-2 is available in powder form which needs to be mixed with bacteriostatic water and refrigerated. Normally, if needed GHRP-2 can be taken in high dosage.
You might be recommended to use about 150 mcg 2-3 times per day. Like other drugs, GHRP also delivers the best result when stacked with other drugs such as GHRH and CJC-1295.
If you are using GHRP-2 in injection form you might be asked to inject it 1-6 times a day containing 25-50 mcg dosage which might be gradually increased. The injections are usually administered in the subcutaneous region of the abdominal area.
Usually, GHRP-2 cycles span for a period of 16 months.
Like any other drug, misuse of GHRP-2 is also associated with unwanted symptoms mainly:
- Decreased sensitivity to insulin
- Bloating etc.
Unlike many other drugs, GHRP-2 does not have severe side effects not it causes major damage to the organs. This is a beneficial point of GHRH-2 compared to other drugs.
