Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-2, also referred to as Pralmorelin or KP-102, is a new 2nd generation synthetic hexapeptide based on the fact that it is made up of 6 amino acids D-Alanyl-3-(2-naphthalenyl)-D-alanyl-L- alanyl-L-tryptophyl-D-phenylalanyl-L-lysinamide.
It is a potent member of the Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide family that is closely related to GHRP-6, a hexapeptide of an earlier generation, shares many similar characteristics but has a stronger growth hormone-releasing action than GHRP-6 based on a study on cultured pituitary cells which showed a 10-fold increase in GH secretion.
It is a peptide that is also an agonist of ghrelin, the newly found gut peptide. It is a pure human growth hormone secretagogue that acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland to secrete growth hormone in animal test subjects with a slight effect on prolactin, adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and cortisol levels.
Studies on GHRP-2 are still ongoing.
Growth hormone-releasing peptide-6 is a synthetic hexapeptide and a met-enkephalin derivative that contains a chain of 6 unnatural D amino acids namely L-Histidine, D-Tryptophan, L-Alanine, L-Tryptophan, D-Phenylalanine and L-Lysine. It is the first hexapeptide studied in animal test subjects and was identified more than a decade ago. It belongs in the family of the Human Growth Hormone secretagogue, a substance that causes secretion of a separate substance. GHRP-6 has no structural similarity with Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH) and works utilizing specific receptors present at the pituitary or hypothalamic level. Research showed that GHRP-6 receptors are also present in different peripheral tissues such as the heart, adrenal, ovary, testis, lung and skeletal muscle.
The cytoprotective effects of GHRP-6 are non-growth Hormone-related which include neuroprotective, cardioprotective, anti-inflammatory as well as hepatoprotective effects.
Research has shown the following potential benefits of GHRP-2, GHRP-6 Blend:
- Decreases fat through lipolysis.
- Increases muscle mass.
- Speeds up wound healing.
- Promotes heart health.
- Decreases inflammation of the liver.
- Offers some form of pain relief.
- Improves lung injury.
- Improves sleep.
- Increases bone density.
- Improves immunity.
Purity, Formulation & Physical Appearance
iPharmix GHRP-2, GHRP-6 Blend has a peptide purity level that exceeds 99.0% as determined by HPLC. This peptide was synthesized with no additives and is supplied as a white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Solubility & Storage
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized GHRP-2, GHRP-6 Blend in bacteriostatic water, which can then be further diluted in other aqueous solutions. Lyophilized GHRP-2, GHRP-6 Blend although stable at room temperature for 90 days, should be stored between 2-8°C. Upon reconstitution, GHRP-2, GHRP-6 Blend should be stored between 2-8°C out of direct light for up to 14 days. For future use store below -18°C. Prevent repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
