GHRP-6 is a potent stimulator of natural Growth Hormone release. GHRP-6 is a Hexa-peptide that promotes food intake by stimulating hunger and helps increase energy metabolism. Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides, similar to GHRP-6, are most commonly used for the treatment of Growth Hormone (GH) deficiencies, eating disorders, obesity, etc. Research has shown that use of these HGH Peptides increases lean muscle mass, strength, stamina and decreases body fat.
In a scientific study that has been based on animal test subjects, it has been determined that GHRP 6’s functionality is associated with the pituitary gland, the central nervous system, the stomach, and the liver. The peptide induces a perpetual stimulation of the pituitary gland while blocking the gland from prohibiting the secretions relating to growth. Its presence also stimulates the production of ghrelin, an enzyme that is produced by the stomach in order to promote hunger. Thirdly, GHRP 6 can produce an uptick in the production of IGF-1, whose anabolic properties play a key role in muscular and skeletal tissue growth and repair. The peptide also works with the central nervous system to promote the travel of the boosted IGF-1 secretions, as well as an increased level of neuroprotection.
The functionality of GHRP 6 has been determined to cause a host of theoretical boosted processes via scientific study based on animal test subjects. Some of these processes include an increase in muscle growth, a more efficient means of building muscle mass, and a faster rate of fat burning. Its association with the central nervous system is also thought to make it a key component in the recovery from an ischemic injury such as a stroke.
The peptide GHRP-6 is a secretagogue peptide chain consisting of six amino acids. It has a molecular weight of 873.014, and its molecular formula is C46H56N12O6.
