Ipamorelin is an amino acid chain (peptide) that is classified as a GHRP (growth hormone releasing peptide). Ipamorelin is very similar to GHRP-2, GHRP-6 and hexarelin. However, the peptide presented is known as the mildest GHRP, compared to others. But it also means that it has the least side effects and it is the most universal GHRP that can be used in conjunction with any AAS, SARM for better results.
At the same time, when ipamorelin increases the production of growth hormones, it does not allow the growth of somatostatin (secretion that inhibits growth). The doubled effect of reducing somatostatin and increasing growth provides the ideal environment for maximum muscle gain. Pentapeptides of ipamorelin is an uniqueness, ie it consists of 5 parts, which are in sequence. Most synthetic growth hormone peptides are Hexapeptides, that is, they consist of six parts working in sequence. According to scientists, this can make the drug safer and less likely to increase levels of cortisol or acetylcholine.
Dosages and application of Ipamorelin
Ipamorelin is an alternative to GHRP-2 or GHRP-6 , as it has a similar effect on humans and does not have as many side effects as seen with the use of these growth-releasing hormones.
For most people, the recommended dose of Ipamorelin is 200 to 300 mcg per day. For athletes who train regularly, it is better to break the dose 2-3 times a day. The program usually lasts from 8 to 12 weeks. Whether you’re using Ipamorelin for weight loss, muscle building, or simply to increase your lost HGH levels, dosages should stay the same throughout the 8-and-12-week program.
Use the drug at the same time, every day. This not only maximizes the results and benefits, but also reduces the likelihood of side effects with continued use. It is best to use ipamorelin injections while eating, not only because it easily gets into the bloodstream for best results, but also because you will not feel the heaviness in the stomach, as in the case of application on an empty stomach.
Benefits of combining Ipamorelin with other hormones
There are a number of benefits to using Ipamorelin when paired with CJC 1295 or other growth hormones:
- Increases the level of growth hormone, which balances the release by the pituitary gland;
- When using Ipamorelin and CJC 1295, there are longer periods of release, which means achieving a better result (usually for those who want to increase muscle mass);
- Improving recovery after long workouts;
- Normalization of sleep;
- Weight loss is achieved quickly in a natural way;
- Improves the appearance of skin, nails and reduces signs of aging;
The combination of ipamorelin with the following peptides will benefit during the cutting program:
- IGF-1 LR3
- HGH Fragment
The following peptides in combination with ipamorelin are useful for muscle gain, and weight bulking program:
- IGF-1 LR3
- Follistatin 344
Again, as with any GH or other supplement, the results will be different for each individual.
Five benefits of ipamorelin
Here are a few useful aspects for athletes:
- Anti-aging effects. It’s biologically impossible to prevent aging, but we can slow it down. With age, bone generation slows down exponentially. Ipamorelin induces the liver to produce IGF-1 growth hormone in the same way as insulin.
- This hormone causes the formation of body tissues and bone regeneration. In a study conducted at the University of California, 28 healthy men, aged fifty years and older, were injected with growth hormone. After a while, tests have shown that most of them experience increased amounts of collagen deposits. This study showed that Ipamorelin can prevent aging. They had significantly stronger bone mass, in addition to stronger joints and connective tissues. In some studies it was reported that those who took Ipamorelin, improved skin tone.
- Enhancing muscle growth. Perhaps this is the most important reason why bodybuilders use Ipamorelin. This peptide is usually taken 30 to 45 minutes before training. Athletes receive about 30% more muscle mass in the first 4 months of use. However, muscle gain depends on many factors. It depends on how long you train every day, your age, diet, genetics, lifestyle, sleep, etc.
- Rapid weight loss. Many obese people inhibit human growth hormone levels. Lipids must be destroyed for successful weight loss. Growth hormone accelerates the breakdown of fats into glycerol and fatty acids. With dietary restrictions, Ipamorelin therapy affects how anabolic actions take place. In turn, a person loses weight.
- Healthy skin, nails and hair growth. Due to age factors, our skin loses its elasticity and may even begin to sag.
- Destroyed hair. This is all the effects of reducing the level of human growth hormone. As you know, Ipamorelin contributes to the generation of this hormone. Several studies of this hormone have shown that it improves skin texture. Ipamorelin helps in the process of cell regeneration.
- Reduced blood pressure. High blood pressure is common among the elderly. Restoration of human growth hormone in the body has proven its effectiveness in the fight against blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases.
- The Swedish physician noted that patients with growth hormone deficiency are twice as likely to suffer from high blood pressure than their healthy counterparts of the same age and sex. Individuals with growth hormone deficiency have increased insulin resistance as well as keep low levels of healthy cholesterol. These symptoms are common in patients with diabetes.
Side effects of Ipamorelin
Despite the safety of the drug, of course, there are certain caveats that you should be aware of if you plan to use Ipamorelin every day.
It is possible to increase the level of cortisol. But this can occur with higher dosage levels and prolonged usage cycles. Athletes can suffer from it. But this applies only to thoseб who for the early results, do not take into account the recommendations in the application.
Dizziness or headache may also occur during prolonged use. Again, this effect should decrease over time.
If you take the drug on an empty stomach, you may experience nausea or upset stomach. Thus, it is better to follow the appropriate dosing levels when used.
Basically, there were no serious or extremely dangerous side effects reported by athletes. But before starting the program it is best to discuss the use of ipamorelin with the doctor.
