The Ipamorelin Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide Comparison
Ipamorelin is a 3rd generation GHRP behind GHRP-6 and GHRP-2. Ipamorelin has very similar characteristics of GHRP-2: does not have ghrelin’s lipogenic properties and does not promote hunger. Ipamorelin acts synergistically when applied during a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) pulse or when it is administered along with a GHRH or an analog such as Sermorelin or Modified GRF 1-29 (growth releasing factor, aminos 1-29). The synergy comes both due to the suppression of somatostatin and the fact that ipamorelin increases GH release per-somatotrope, while GHRH increases the number of somatotropes releasing GH. On the other hand, Ipamorelin is similar to GHRP-6 because they both release GH at a very similar strength minus the side effects that of GHRP-6. Both GHRP-6 and GHRP-2 cause a release and an increase in cortisol and prolactin levels, however Ipamorelin only selectively releases GH at any dose. Ipamorelin shares similar functionality to Hexarelin and compared to other peptides, it is a much more stable form of ghrelin and has longer half-life periods of at least two hours long and causes secondary effect by making neurons to become excited.
Theorized Benefits of Impamorelin
Because of the way in which Ipamorelin works to stimulate the secretions relating to growth and repair, scientific study based on animal test subjects has derived a host of theorized benefits in relation to the peptide. These theorized benefits include a strengthening of bone mass, an improvement in skin tone, a boost in the burning of adipose tissue, a strengthening of connective tissue, and a strengthening and rejuvenation of joints. Due to the nature of these theorized benefits, some scientific studies have been able to determine that the peptide could play a vital role in the overall slowing down of the aging process.
Ipamorelin is usually supplied in 2mg vials containing the freeze-dried peptide, which needs to be reconstituted with bacteriostatic water. Once the peptide is reconstituted, it should be used within 8 weeks and should be stored in the fridge between 2°C – 8 °C. If the ipamorelin does not dissolve minutes do not shake the solution as this can damage the peptide. Gently swirl the mixture or leave it a while longer and it should dissolve within a few minutes.
The following are among the summarized benefits of Ipamorelin:
- Improved mood and quality of sleep
- Faster recovery as well as promote anti-aging due to its anti-aging properties
- Helps to lower body fat percentage
- Helps to increase lean body mass
- It does not cause any spike of prolactin or cortisol at lower dosages
