Ipamorelin is a selective growth hormone (GH) Secretagogue and Ghrelin receptor agonist. Ipamorelin stands out due to its enhanced specificity. This peptide generates similar increases in growth hormone secretion, but without the appetite stimulation and increase in cortisol, acetylcholine, prolactin, and aldosterone that can occur seen with other peptides in its class. This peptide has been found to be very well-tolerated.
Gland Stimulated: Pituitary Gland
- Decreased body fat
- Increased collagen production
- Increased lean muscle mass
- Improved sleep
- Increased cellular repair and & Regeneration
- Increased IGF-1
- Increases bone mineral content
- Counteracts glucocorticoid catabolic effects
Ipamorelin has been shown to be both highly potent and also demonstrated good safety and tolerability in human clinical studies. Research has shown that it is growth hormone specific which means that the pituitary hormones such as cortisol are unaffected. Though it is turning out that Ipamorelin may be one of the best alternatives available to HGH therapy, as it not only promotes the extra production of the subjects own GH and, additionally, helps to stimulate the liver to produce greater amounts of IGF-1 in the process but it’s also understood to not influence certain bodily processes to happen, unlike other secretagogues that have been shown to function in a similar capacity.
Another very significant positive difference is that benefits does not display a capacity to significantly boost levels of cortisol. Research has shown that Ipamorelin is growth hormone specific which means that the pituitary hormones are also unaffected. Patients on different types of secretagogue therapies have reported jitters, cold sweats or nervousness and this is due to those other therapy’s overall impact on cortisol levels. Because benefits of Ipamorelin does not affect the body in this way, patients are able to better benefit from just the positive aspects of GH therapy, while keeping unwanted side effects at bay.
