GHRP-6 (Growth Hormone Releasing Hexapeptide) is a peptide hormone of the Growth Hormone class. The purpose of GHRP-6 is to increase the amount of natural growth hormone production in the body. Increases in growth hormone can be beneficial to anabolism, fat loss, recovery and general well being as well as serve possible anti-aging purposes.
GHRP-6 can provide performance enhancing benefits, however it will show far greater benefits when used as part of a long-term anti-aging plan (Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)) or in conjunction with other medications used to enhance performance.
The side effects of GHRP-6 should be similar if not identical to any growth hormone related peptide or hormone, and in most cases, should be avoidable or adaptable except in rare cases.
Some users may find slight irritations at the injected area (injection sight). In most cases, moving injection sites to other areas of the body will remedy the issue.
Some users of growth hormone products may notice a tingling sensation in their hands and or feet. This is most commonly associated with high doses and very high doses of growth hormone levels in the body, but it can occur even with low to moderate dosing in some cases. Most users should find this to fade as use continues but it may not in some rare cases.
The side effects of GHRP-6 can include a decent headache in some users due to a strong drop in blood sugar. Diet adjustments will often remedy the problem, but it’s important to remember fasted use is the only true beneficial use. The side effects of GHRP-6 can include gynecomastia in very rare cases due to the peptide possibly increasing prolactin levels.
GHRP-6 comes in dry powder form and will require mixing with bacteriostatic water. GHRP-6 must be kept refrigerated after mixed. GHRP-6 will lose potency in less than four weeks after mixed.
GHRP-6 injections can be administered intramuscularly (in the muscle) or subcutaneously (under the skin).
Doses must be administered on a daily basis at minimum with 2-3 doses being far more optimal. Total daily doses may range from 50-500mcg per injection depending on individual need. If another Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) is used, such as Mod GRF 1-29, the total amount of GHRP-6 needed will be reduced with a range of 50-150mcg per dose being optimal.
GHRP-6 must be administered when blood sugar levels are low. Food should not be consumed for 30-60 minutes after administering GHRP-6.
