GHRP-6 is one of several synthetic met-enkephalin analogs that include unnatural D-amino acids, which were developed for their growth hormone (GH) releasing activity and are called GH secretagogues. GHRP6 is a true hGH secretagogue. Which means it stimulates the body’s own secretion of growth hormone. Human Growth hormone has been shown in studies to promote lean body mass and reduce adiposity (fat). It is now known that these growth hormone releasing peptides are distinct from GHRH and do not act at the GHRH receptor, but instead act at the growth hormone secretagogue receptor, now renamed as the ghrelin receptor. GHRP6 is a hexapeptide with a chain comprised of 6 amino acids. This special sequence is considered to provide a signal to the body to begin secreting Growth Hormone release while also blocking Somatostatin, a hormone that inhibits Growth Hormone release.
GHRP-6, other secretagogues and ghrelin stimulate the anterior pituitary gland causing an increase in GH release. When natural GH secretion has been inhibited by long term abuse of synthetic GH, GHRP-6 hexapeptide may help to re-stimulate the natural production of GH. GHRP6 may also affect the central nervous system by protecting neurons as well as increasing strength in a way very similar to the way certain steroids in the Dihydro-testosterone family do.
GHRP-6 Side Effects
Claimed benefits of increased peptide hormone levels through GHRP-6 stimulation include: an increase in strength, muscle mass and body fat loss, rejuvenation and strengthening of joints, connective tissue and bone mass. Enhanced GH secretion also leads to the liver secreting more IGF-1 (Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1), which is thought to be the primary anabolic mechanism of action for rHGH. It has also been discovered that when GHRP-6 and insulin are used simultaneously, growth hormone response to GHRP-6 is increased. A recent study showed significant differences in body composition, muscle growth, glucose metabolism, memory and cardiac function after being administered with GHRP-6 treatment.
