Ipamorelin 5 mg Peptide Sciences: instructions for use
Ipamorelin is a peptide hormone. Its use is common in the medical and sports field. It is a stimulant for the production of growth hormone, which has an anabolic effect. It is therefore particularly valuable in bodybuilding and other sports disciplines. Ipamorelin 5 mg Peptide Sciences also mimics ghrelin. It is a hormone that triggers hunger and stimulates food intake.
Ipamorelin 5 mg Peptide Sciences: effect on the body
Although the drug mimics the action of ghrelin, there is no significant change in eating habits and appetite. The effect manifests itself only when the drug is first taken. Much more important is the property of the peptide to stimulate growth hormone. This is due to the fact that Ipamorelin does not allow somatostatin to inhibit its secretion, and also directly affects the pituitary gland, and it begins to secrete somatotropin more actively.
This process leads to the following results:
- high quality muscle growth;
- increased immunity;
- strengthening of the skeletal system;
- elimination of excess fat.
The drug belongs to the latest generation of stimulants, so it has a more perfect formula. If we compare it with GHRP-6 (also a growth hormone stimulant), the effectiveness is the same. But Ipamorelin 5 mg Peptide Sciences, even with increasing doses, does not provoke the production of prolactin and cortisol.
The drug does not adversely affect the body. The only possible side effect when using it is a burning sensation and redness at the injection site. This is a local reaction, which is considered the norm.
The medicine is available as a solution for injection, in a vial containing 5 mg of active substance. To understand how much medicine is needed, a calculation is made: 1 μg of active substance per 1 kg of body weight. It is recommended to use up to 100 mcg, administered 2-3 times a day.
Ipamorelin 5 mg Peptide Sciences is administered by subcutaneous injection. You should give injections every day, on average, the course lasts 4 to 5 weeks. During this time, you can get a good result in the form of increased lean muscle mass and a noticeable relief.
