Have you heard of GHRP-6 Cream?
You may have overheard bodybuilders talking about injectable GHRP-6, but this topical form may be new to you.
Don’t worry. We’re here to help.
First, the basics: GHRP-6 is not a steroid.
It isn’t even a form of exogenous human growth hormone (HGH).
It is actually a Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide (a.k.a, GHRP) that works by creating a lift in the amount of HGH in your blood.
In order to help you learn more about the products available for bodybuilders, we’ve created the following FAQ to help you sort out myth and reality.
What is GHRP-6?
The GHRP in the name stands for growth hormone releasing peptide.
The 6 refers to its structure as a hexapeptide.
When injected, this compound sends a pulse to your pituitary gland signaling it is time to release growth hormone into your body.
It is not a hormone in itself and it is not a steroid. It is a research chemical that does not require a prescription to purchase.
Even so, it is illegal to introduce into a human or animal body unless it is part of an actual clinical trial.
So yes, you can buy it. But no, you can’t use it—not legally anyways.
Why do Bodybuilders Use It?
If you are into bodybuilding, you might want to restore your growth hormone level to that of a growing teen.
A healthy growth hormone level can raise your metabolism, increase your energy level, help you recover from intense workouts, and even support better mental focus.
When you workout, you are able to push yourself harder because the GH in your system is giving you that extra surge of energy, which you are then able to recoup from in a shorter time.
Because GHRP-6 stays in your system for only a short time, when you first administer it, it sends that releasing pulse, getting your body ready for a high-energy session.
You can dose several times a day and for several weeks on end without severely affecting your body’s ability to generate growth hormone.
It has few side effects, but they do include headache, dizziness, flushed sensation, and possibly increased insulin resistance.
What Forms does It Come in?
The most popular form that GHRP-6 arrives in is a powdered form in 2mg or 5mg vials.
Users reconstitute the powder using bacteriostatic water and can store it for a few days in the fridge. It is then either injected or taken sub-lingually.
It can also be found in transdermal creams, which can be applied under the arms without the discomfort of injection or dealing with the aftertaste of subL.
How Common is the Cream?
The cream was developed in the medical community for the treatment of psoriasis and other skin conditions and can be obtained through a prescription.
The companies that make it for the chemical research community will offer it online without a prescritpion.
When you’re hunting to purchase it online, it’s very difficult to come by and tends to be a much more expensive option when compared to the injectable form.
For those who absolutely cannot stand to do the injection and dislike the subL taste, it appears to be a popular option for those that can afford it.
Peptide Cream Reviews
Does it work? That’s a real question.
Some users of GHRP-6 cream have reported enjoying similar benefits to those who went with the injected version.
However, there are also several conversations that the molecular construction of GHRP-6 is too big to be absorbed through the skin with up to a 70% loss of the peptide during absorption.
It’s possible that those who reported good results from the cream were experiencing the placebo effect, especially if they are stacking with other supplements and steroids.
There is also a chance that they found a supplier of the medically prescribed cream that has been engineered to function as a transdermal cream.
Unless you actually speak to a person who can physically show you the product, be cautious of those promoting the product.
Where Can I Buy It?
Since GHRP-6 is a research chemical, you won’t find it on the shelves at your local GNC or pharmacy.
You can’t obtain a prescription in order to have your local pharmacy fill it, either. It is only available online through a variety of peptide labs such as Peptides Online that will either service the research community or the bodybuilder world.
The cost can range between $250 and $400 for a 50 ml tube that contain 50 doses. You may be applying it two to three times per day, so your wallet will be emptied in a short amount of time.
Can It Hurt My Kids?
This is where using a research chemical can really mess you up.
There simply isn’t any clinical data on the side effects of the topical cream for anybody.
If you apply it and experience a flushing sensation, tingling in your extremities, and a headache, what will it do to a child? Their growth hormones are already functioning at a high level.
Since the cream is topical, it is easy to apply and equally easy to transfer to another person through casual contact.
Care must be taken to let it fully absorb into your skin and ensure that any clothing that comes into contact with it is washed separately from children and other at risk individuals.
There’s no doubt that GHRP-6 can be a powerful addition to your bodybuilding routine, but the cream seems to have more unknowns in its use, effectiveness and safety.
