What is Ipamorelin?
Ipamorelin is a pentapeptide and a peptide selective agonist of the growth hormone secretagogue (GHS). It increases the natural levels of plasma growth hormone in humans. It’s very selective, stimulating as it does only growth hormone. It can be compared to GHRP-6 in that it stimulates the production of the hormone ghrelin, which normally increases appetite, as it signals to the body that food is needed. However using Ipamorelin doesn’t affect the appetite, despite its high propensity to increase ghrelin secretion.
Ipamorelin is sometimes thought by those less familiar with pentapeptides to be a rather weaker and less useful supplement than some of the perhaps better-known HGH stimulating compounds. This is far from being the case. Ipamorelin has a very important and useful position amongst the range of products available to enhance strength, power, bulk, and performance in the serious athlete and sportsman. This is because it has no known effect on plasma GH or cortisol levels, and is a clean, safe and effective choice for prolonged use. You could compare it in strength to GHRP-2 and GHRP-6.
Ipamorelin can be taken for extended periods of time, unlike other peptides, and there is no significant increase in sensitization over time. It’s long-lasting and very powerful, although it doesn’t produce a dramatic instant effect. Instead, it offers sustained and powerful results over a period of time.
As with all supplements, it is important to establish the correct dosage level and regime. Ipamorelin is delivered by subcutaneous (under the skin) injection or intramuscular (into the muscle). A normal recommendation is in the range of 200 to 300 mcg per day. It’s generally best to choose the same time of day each day for your dose and to take it on an empty stomach. This will ensure that you obtain optimal results. If you prefer, your dose can be split into two, meaning two injections daily.
Ipamorelin is usually taking in a twelve-week cycle. Shorter or longer cycles can be experimented with, but it’s best to start out with the twelve-week option.
