The Ipamorelin Effect—Harnessing the Power of Growth Hormone, Naturally
The human body relies on very specific endocrine chemistry to change and grow throughout the years. From the time we are born the pituitary gland, located at the base of the skull releases potent hormones that direct the body to build bone, muscle, and tissue. As we age however, many chemical processes slow considerably, because they are no longer needed in quite the same way. Growth hormone, necessary to create lean muscle mass and strong bones decreases.
The Ipamorelin Advantage
Ipamorelin is a growth hormone releasing peptide (GHRP) that naturally stimulates the body’s own production of growth hormone. When taken properly, at the right intervals, Ipamorelin promotes strength, anti-aging, and healing. In individuals who want to build lean muscle mass and control body weight, Ipamorelin works by binding to specific receptors within cells. This process then stimulates particular responses. Because it is classified as an “agonist”, Ipamorelin is able to effect cellular change by way of its five amino acids.
How it Works
Once Ipamorelin is injected subcutaneously, the pituitary gland is stimulated to release growth hormone within the body. Cells immediately begin to mobilize, moving toward the muscles to support growth and development. The effects of this Ipamorelin dose can last up to 3 hours without creating disfiguring bone and cartilage growth. The powerful pentapeptide works in conjunction with the body’s natural chemistry in a “pulsatile fashion” without depleting existing stores of growth hormone. Because many of the side effects associated with direct Human Growth Hormone (HGH) use do not exist, including swelling of joints and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Ipamorelin can be used long-term.
Benefits of Ipamorelin
- Helps build lean muscle mass
- Helps regulate blood pressure
- Promotes anti-aging
- Regulates body temperature
- Improves sexual function
- Helps relieve pain
- Helps reduce body fat
- Helps build strength in muscles
- Helps promote muscle definition, density, hardness, and contours
- Helps promote greater testosterone production
- Helps create bone strength
- Helps promote joint and ligament repair
- Helps promote healthy skin
- Helps smooth wrinkles
- Helps regenerate feelings of vitality and energy
- Improves sleep quality
Gentler GHRP with Fewer Side Effects
Many popular peptide releasers including, GHRP-6 and GHRP-2 work to stimulate the release of growth hormone secreted by the pituitary gland. Some of these also produce unwanted side effects when mimicking the hormone ghrelin, such as intense hunger.
Ipamorelin is milder than most growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRP’s), but powerful enough to promote GH production. Some users do experience a headache or a “head rush” when first dosing, but most tolerate the synthetic peptide very well. When used properly as part of an overall diet and exercise regimen Ipamorelin is an excellent choice for individuals who want to supplement their workout.
- No extreme spikes in cortisol or prolactin
- Increases Lean Body Mass
- Decreases body fat
- No major hunger spikes
- Improves mood and sleep
- Faster recovery from pain and soreness
- Efficient like GHRP-6
- Promotes gains
- Helps suppress somatostatin (growth hormone inhibitor)
- Ideal for dosing before bedtime
- Saturation does not desensitize the body to effects of Ipamorelin
- Long lasting effects
Many individuals are already doing the work with regular, intense physical training. Synthetic Ipamorelin merely maximizes the body’s full potential by working with its own natural chemistry. By stimulating the secretion of growth hormone, powerful GH pulses are released that promote energy, vitality, strength, and growth that lasts for hours. There’s nothing better than utilizing the body’s own physical processes to create a better body.
