The functionality of Hexarelin
Hexarelin (Hexarelin Acetate) is chemically designed as
Hexarelin (Hexarelin Acetate) is a potent GHRP-6 analog, whose structure (His-D-2-methyl-Trp-Ala-Trp-D-Phe-Lys-NH2) creates a greater stability than GHRP-6 due to a substituted (2 Me)Trp. Hexarelin has a half-life of about 70 min, longer than that of GHRP-6. Replacement of the naturally occurring L-amino acids for the D-configuration results in these longer half-lives.
Hexarelin, also known as Examorelin, is a Growth Hormone (GH), specifically a Growth Hormone Secretagogue Receptor (GHSR) of the hexapeptide class. Hexarelin is in many ways similar to GHRP-6; however, it has been shown to be much stronger producing a larger increase in naturally produced GH. Some data suggest it may be the strongest synthetic Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) on the market.
Hexarelin Functions and Traits
Hexarelin is comprised of a chain of amino acids that when administered stimulates the pituitary in a pulsating fashion causing it to release more GH into the body. Unfortunately, at this time it is not fully understood how Hexarelin causes such a strong increase in GH compared to say GHRP-6; data merely shows that the increase is significantly more.
The use of Hexarelin has also been shown to increase prolactin and cortisol levels in the body, far more so than other GH products. Prolactin increases should not be as strong as they may be with certain anabolic steroids, but they may be significant in some cases. Hexarelin will not increase Ghrelin levels in the body like GHRP-6 despite being very similar on a structural basis.
Data has also shown Hexarelin to be one of the faster acting GH products on the market but also one of the few that stops working after a set amount of time. GH levels should increase quickly and in a beneficial manner in as little as four weeks. However, use past the sixteen week mark has been shown to produce little to no results. Use of any worth will normally fall in the 8-12 week range with 4-6 weeks of no use (minimum) between Hexarelin cycles. The peptide will not render pituitary function (GH production) post use as will anabolic steroids in regards to the testicles, but it does appear to have a short lived actionable period of use.
Effects of Hexarelin
As with all GH products, Hexarelin carries with it numerous benefits. Because it is one of the most power GHRH hormones on the market, it may be the most beneficial to the performance athlete. Human Growth Hormone (HGH) will always be the most effective of all, but when it comes to GHRH items, fragments and the like, Hexarelin is perhaps the top choice.
Perhaps the most beneficial effects of Hexarelin surround its healing properties. Data has shown this to be one of the most beneficial GH products in this regard. We cannot call it a suitable long-term option for the purpose of anti-aging due to the short-lived use that seems to exist, but it’s recovery type benefits are still hard to ignore. Such benefits can include:
Joint healing (not masking or false pain relief, but actual healing)
Strengthening of the Neural system
Muscle fiber repair (ideal for injuries)
Direct increase of bone density
Heart protection (some data has shown it may heal heart tissue, including the healing of scar tissue to the relieving of pressure at the left ventricle)
