WHAT IS IPAMORELIN
Ipamorelin is a pepitde that helps to release growth hormone because it mimics ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which together act to regulate growth hormone release from the pituitary gland. This is an important distinction between other peptides such as Sermorelin because Ghrelin also works at the pituitary gland and is responsible for initiating the breakdown of fat for use as energy as well as preventing the breakdown of muscles.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF IPAMORELIN
- very powerful anti-aging benefits
- may increase athletic performance, energy, and recovery
- increased muscle mass
- decreased body fat
- enhanced flexibility and joint health
- promotes better recovery from injuries and training sessions
- deeper, more restful sleep
- improved overall health and wellness.
HOW DOES IPAMORELIN WORK
Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce GH thru Ghrelin. There is no shutdown of natural growth hormone production like that which occurs with synthetic hGH administration. Ipamorelin causes GH secretion in a way that more closely resembles natural release patterns, causing growth hormone to be released in a “pulse” type manner, rather than being constantly elevated. This results in fewer side effects compared with synthetic hGH. Ipamorelin creates a smoother, less intense pulse of GH release with a longer duration than most other GHRPs as well, causing GH elevation for up to 3 - 4 hours after administration.
WHAT IS THE DOSAGE OF IPAMORELIN
Ipamorelin is supplied as an injectable and troche.
Concentration of Ipamorelin:
- Ipamorelin 15 mg injectable
- Ipamorelin 300 mg, 500 mg troche
- Ipamorelin 750 mg RDT
Note oral administration dose is typically higher than subcutaneous injections because of the total absorption based of route of administration
General dosing is 1 troche or RDT daily at night before bed, 1-2 hours after a meal.
Ipamorelin subcutaneous injections are slightly more effective because of rate of absorption and are dosed from 150-500 mcg at night before bed 6ths nights a week
Cycling with Ipamorelin should be no more than 3 consecutive months with 2-4 week off before starting another cycle. It is often used with Sermorelin and or CJC 1295
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF IPAMORELIN
Sermorelin is well tolerated with little to no side effects if any. The most common side effect is hunger.
- injection site reactions (such as pain, swelling, or redness)
- difficulty swallowing
- fluid retention (typically dose related and seen more in the first two weeks of administration)
