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-6:
- A decrease in body fat.
- Increase in muscle growth.
- Increase in bone tissue growth.
- Increase in immunity.
- Improvement in sleep.
- Reduction in heart problems.
- Improvement in brain function.
- Timely healing of injuries.
Improvement in skin appearance by smoothing wrinkles.
Purity, Formulation & Physical Appearance
iPharmix GHRP-6 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-6 in bacteriostatic water, which can then be further diluted in other aqueous solutions. Lyophilized GHRP-2 although stable at room temperature for 90 days, should be stored between 2-8°C. Upon reconstitution, GHRP-6 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.
