Sermorelin GHRP2 defines growth hormone releasing peptide.
This form of growth hormone is commonly used to encourage the pituitary gland to release growth hormone.
In medical scenarios, it’s also a tool that diagnosis growth hormone deficiencies in adults, is used as a treatment for pediatric idiopathic growth hormone deficiency and some adult onset growth hormone insufficiencies.
Growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH)/peptides (GHRP) are manufactured by pharmaceutical companies around the world.
The analog is numbered 1 through 29. Why would bodybuilders be interested in a product that is traditionally used as a diagnostic tool?
Benefits of Sermorelin GHRP2 for Athletes
Sermorelin GHRP2 (and other variations of the growth hormone peptide) can trigger a number of benefits to athletes and bodybuilders such as:
Boost in energy
Increase in muscle mass
Enhanced synthesis of proteins
Promoting fat burning
Strengthening connective tissues and joints
Decreasing levels of body fat
Growth Hormone Function
Bodybuilders and athletes often turn to anabolic androgenic steroids, growth hormone, and other substances to accelerate their physical enhancement, muscles, and performance.
Sermorelin is defined as an analog that produces the effects of hexapeptide-type growth hormone secretagogue.
GHRP2 is defined as a six-sided peptide that contains the six amino acid residues. Its main functions:
Encourage release of growth hormone (GH) manufactured by the body
Enhance concentrations of serum GH and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1)
An analog defines something that is similar to an original.
It’s a polypeptide that contains 29 amino acids, which are designed to represent fragments 1 through 29 of body-produced (endogenous) human growth hormone releasing hormone.
A secretagogue is defined as something that triggers the creation and secretion of something; in this case, human growth hormone.
Sermorelin GHRP2 behaves the same way on receptors and functions as growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH).
Growth hormone is manufactured and secreted by the pituitary gland, located in the brain.
The pituitary gland is known as the master gland of the body because it is responsible for the maintenance, production, and secretions of other hormones in the body including testosterone.
The pituitary gland receives its instructions in regard to hormone levels from the hypothalamus, also located in the brain. The hypothalamus controls levels of chemical balances in the body as well as neurotransmitters.
When the hypothalamus senses that levels of growth hormone are low, it sends signals to the pituitary gland to either increase or decrease production of growth hormone.
Growth hormone secretions travel to various organs and stimulate functions of the liver, pancreas, and sex steroids and then further down to specific target tissues.
Sermorelin GHRP2 Reviews
Growth hormone releasing peptides are often designated with a number following it such as:
GHRP-2 (Sermorelin acetate)
GHRP-6 (Sermorelin acetate)
GHRP2 (and 6) are classified as growth hormone secretagogue products.
They’re known by a number of names depending on manufacturer, such as GHRP Kaken 100.
A Sermorelin GHRP-6 GHRP-2 blend may be used for a variety of issues from adult growth hormone deficiency to low natural growth hormone production.
When it comes to GHRP2, it’s mainly used as a diagnostic solution that tests levels of growth hormone deficiencies.
Commonly used in Japan, the product is available in a single dose (in different milligram strengths) strictly for clinical diagnostics.
Sermorelin GHRP2 is an intramuscular or subcutaneous solution commonly prescribed in the treatment of adult growth hormone deficiency, and is typically used in a variety of growth hormone deficiency and production issues for adults.
Sermorelin GHRP2 Dosage
The manufacturer recommends a daily dose of 300mcg Sermorelin and 180mcg GHRP2.
Bodybuilders often use such products (against medical recommendation) to enhance muscle growth and muscle mass gains.
It has a short half-life of roughly 30 minutes, with peak concentrations occurring roughly 15 minutes following an injection. Because of its extremely short half-life, it’s often injected two to three times daily (subcutaneous).
Sermorelin GHRP2 stimulate the secretion of somatotropin and is directly involved in the responses of growth hormones in the body.
GHRP2 also has a minimal influence on production and secretions of cortisol, prolactin, and adrenocorticotropic hormone or ACTH.
This polypeptide hormone (also manufactured in the pituitary gland) regulates activities of portions of the adrenal glands.
Sermorelin GHRP2 Side Effects
Bodybuilders or athletes using GHRP2 for nonmedical reasons run the risk of disrupting otherwise normal hormone levels in the body that control numerous activities and functions.
In addition, side effects noted with use of Sermorelin GHRP2 by patients, even supervised by physicians, include:
pain, swelling, redness, irritation at the injection site
upper respiratory issues
Bodybuilders and athletes should also be aware that use of GHRP2 has a potential to raise blood sugar levels, reduce sensitivity to insulin, and decrease T3 (Triiodothyronine) levels because of its ability to negatively impact levels of phosphorus, potassium, and sodium in the body.
Before turning to Sermorelin GHRP2 for its benefits, always consider the risks of use. Growth hormone is beneficial for the body, but too much of anything is not always safe.
